Pack Peace of mind. Pack atol.
The Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing scheme (ATOL) provides financial security to travellers booking package trips with UK travel companies. The scheme was introduced in 1973 to prevent travellers from being left without assistance or at a financial loss, if their travel company were to cease trading.
Many countries have schemes in place to protect travellers booking package holidays.
ATOL is able to provide this assistance by requiring ATOL holders to pay a fee for each traveller, which is held in a fund managed by the Air Travel Trust. This fund is used to refund, repatriate or reimburse travellers for the cost of repaying for the affected parts of their trip.
The scheme is managed by the UK Civil Aviation Authority, the regulatory body that oversees air travel in the United Kingdom. There is more information on ATOL available at www.caa.co.uk/atol.
