Mobile Maybe a silly question... ?

If I book a holiday direct through Disney and then add on flights through Disney when they become available, do I get the same cover / protection as if Id booked a full package through a TA?!

I'm pretty sure if you book a Disney hotel and tickets it's still considered a package.

I get the same cover DIY as I do through a TA I book with a credit card so get s75 protection if I book my airline tickets through a consolidater they are ATOL protected and te websites I use for hotels are.

In addition I have good travel insurance.

I may be naive but I dont think I get anyth8ng more from a TA if I am wrong 8 would be grateful for someone to tell me.

Ok thanks for your response. I guess Im just thinking worse case scenario. Eg. If there for some reason was an issue with your flight (ash cloud etc) and then you were delayed by a few days, I presume if going through TA they would try to ensure that you still got a similar number of days away. However, if diy, your accommodation would just be sat waiting for you so not adjustment available to you? I really have very little experience with all of this so Id be happy for anyone with knowledge to help me out and tell me different! If it was just me and DH going away I wouldnt worry, but the thought of having to tell my DD theres a problem is what concerns me.

Another example is... my friend once had a flight cancellation and couldnt fly back home. The TA arranged a hotel for the night with transfers and all costs paid for, presumably you would be the one having to sort all of that if going diy? I guess you would get money back eventually off insurance etc, but you would have the hassle / cost at the time?
