About Us

Planet Windsurf is one of the most established specialist windsurf holiday companies in Europe, organising fully inclusive windsurf holidays to the worlds very best windsurf locations since 1997. We operate out of our water front offices on the south coast on the UK in the Brighton area; just a stones throw away from one of the best local windsurf beaches - the 'Hot Pipes'. Planet Windsurf is a trading name of Planet Travel Ltd, a water sports specialist travel company, also offering Kitesurf Holidays (Planet Kitesurf Holidays), Diving Holidays (Planet Dive Holidays) and, since 2016, Luxury Ski Holidays (Planet Ski Holidays). We also have a worldwide luxury travel brand, Planet Travel Holidays

Since 1997 Planet Windsurf has been at the very forefront of windsurf travel in the UK, and even Europe, and we are proud to currently be the most established, and largest, independent windsurf tour operator in the UK. 

Our success has come from a combination of a very high level of travel expertise combined with a passion for the sport. This is backed up with a highly pro-active ethos within the company; we are always striving to do better through constant product development and research along with heavy investment in the latest travel IT systems to ensure that we can provide the fastest and most competitive responses to our clients' requests.

Planet Windsurf is more that just a windsurf travel company; we specialise in luxury tailor made tours worldwide. We believe that the holiday experience can be made so much more memorable and enjoyable by combining your world class windsurfing beach resort with the rich cultural experience that your chosen country has to offer. With this aim Planet have developed many new destinations in recently in South Africa, the Indian Ocean and South America where there is huge scope for turning your windsurf vacation into a trip of a lifetime.

Holiday financial and ATOL protection

All our holidays, with flights, are covered by ATOL and TTA, and our holidays that do not include flights are still covered by our TTA protection, which means that you are 100% financially protected when you book your holiday with us. So what does that mean exactly for your holiday financial protection?

Planet Windsurf is part of Planet Travel Ltd, we have ATOL (Air Travel Organiser’s License) bonding and our ATOL number is T7314. By law, every UK travel company which sells air holidays and flights in the UK is required to hold an ATOL.  If for any reason a travel company with an ATOL ceases trading, the ATOL scheme protects customers who had booked holidays with that firm. It ensures they do not get stranded abroad or lose money. The scheme is designed to reassure consumers that their money is safe, and will provide assistance in the event of a travel company failure.

ATOL protection does not apply to holidays and travel services which exclude flights, for which protection is afforded by our membership of the Travel Trust Association.

Planet Windsurf has been a TTA (Travel Trust Association) member since October 2001. Every TTA member deposits your money into the Trust Account, this happens directly following your booking. A Trust Account is a bank account designated to hold the customer’s money. Your money remains in the Trust Account and is supervised by an appointed trustee who is either a banker, chartered or certified accountant or a solicitor. Both the Travel Trust Association members and the trustee are required to authorise payments from the trust account. In addition to being held in trust, you also have a financial guarantee from the Travel Trust Association.
