Classic Collection Holidays’ Modern Slavery Statement

 

Introduction

Modern slavery is a crime which encompasses slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour, and human trafficking. Classic Collection Holidays is committed to act with integrity and transparency in every area of its business and it realises the importance of being aware of potential modern slavery risks within the business and throughout its supply chains.

Organisational structure and supply chains

Classic Collection Holidays is a luxury tour operator promoting tailor-made holidays. We sell holidays directly to the public, and via travel agents.  We book customers’ travel via scheduled, charter and low cost/no frills airlines or by rail, and book accommodation (mostly in four and five-star hotels and occasionally in villas and on river or ocean-going cruise ships). We provide a UK-based concierge service to book excursions and tickets overseas and representation services in resort. Additionally, we use the services of handling/ground agents, and transport companies to book private transfers overseas.

Countries of operation and supply

The company organises holidays for approximately 36,000 customers a year travelling from the UK and Ireland to Europe, Morocco, Turkey, Egypt, Bermuda, and the Caribbean.  

Responsibility

The Board of Directors is responsible for reviewing policies regarding the company’s anti-slavery initiatives; the Managing Director is responsible for the implementation of policies. 

Within our business

We employ 150 staff, mainly located at our head office in Worthing, West Sussex, and has a small number of overseas employees and contractors.  Only reputable agencies are used to recruit new staff, and passport checks ensure that all employees are eligible to work.

Suppliers to our business

A Working Party has been formed to identify practical ways in which the company can ensure the following:

  • that its suppliers meet the high standards required with regards to their employees’ terms and conditions

  • that the company’s whistleblowing policy ensures that staff, customers and other interested parties may contact the Managing Director in confidence, without fear of retaliation

Board Members’ approval

The company makes this statement pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. It has been approved by the Board of Directors who will review and update annually.
