You will see from some of the Destination2 pages that we have social media buttons such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+1, together with in excess of 200 other social media sites, located in the more button situated on every page.
These buttons generate messages back to your social media account when you like a page or you want to share a page with your social media group.
Without these buttons, you will not be able to share or mark items of interest with your social media group. We have added these buttons in order that you can share a future holiday or trip with your friends and family.
Essentially yes, but you will not be able to share or interact with your social media network whilst this is disabled.

Essentially a web page is a unique page. In order to match a search request; for example to a results page; we need this cookie in order to operate. We also require this session in order to troubleshoot any problems we may have had during the business day. This session allows us to step through the problematic section of a reported issue so that we may resolve this and prevent it from happening in the future.
