To put it simply, being a member of ABTA and being ATOL protected means you can travel with confidence. It means that in the unlikely event that anything does go wrong with your holiday, you’ll never lose out on money or be stranded abroad.
An Air Travel Organisers License (ATOL) is a compulsory element for any travel firm selling air holiday packages, and means we, as your holiday provider, must issue you with a certificate to prove protection is in place. The certificate ensures that if your tour operator were to unfortunately fail, the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) will make a full refund to you, or if you’re abroad, they’ll arrange for you to finish your holiday and fly home, be it with potentially alternative flight arrangements.
While ATOL is compulsory, ABTA is not. We’re voluntarily a member of the Association of British Travel Agents, which means we have to abide by a specific code of conduct in order to be certified. It’s an added level of protection for you as a customer - we want you to be fully confident in booking with us, knowing that we’ve got you covered in the unlikely event of a crisis. Our ABTA Number is K8641.
Once you’ve booked your holiday, your holiday documents, including your ATOL certificate, will be emailed to you – so make sure to keep it handy. Of course this is all a precaution in the case of an emergency, and the chances are you’ll never need to look at it again – your holiday will hopefully be smooth sailing from the get-go!
