With millions of Brits set to book holidays in the next couple of weeks, we want to talk about the importance of ATOL protection.

What is it?

 

ATOL (Air Travel Organisers Licence) is something you need to ensure is in place when booking your holidays, as it is what protects you from losing money or being stranded abroad if your holiday company goes bust.

All UK travel companies should have this in place as it is against the law to not have.

 

How do I know if I’m covered?

 

All companies with ATOL protection must issue a certificate to each customer in order to confirm this.

ATOL protection does not apply for flights purchased direct from the airline, and flights only from travel agents will need to be checked to confirm.

If you are ever concerned, you can always check a companies ATOL protection via the CAA’s website.

 

How much does it cost?

 

ATOL protection generally costs the customer nothing, although some companies will highlight the cost within the invoice.

It costs travel companies £2.50 per traveller, and this is put into a central ATOL fund.
