ATOL - Protecting holidaymakers since 1973
The law says your holiday must be protected if it is a package holiday. ATOL (which stands for Air Travel Organiser’s Licence) is a UK financial protection scheme and it protects most air package holidays sold by travel businesses that are based in the UK. The scheme also applies to some flight bookings, usually those where you book flights (including UK domestic flights) but do not receive your tickets immediately.
ATOL was first introduced in 1973, as the popularity of overseas holidays grew. After a number of high profile travel business failures left people stranded overseas the UK Government realised consumers required protection when their travel providers fell into difficulties. ATOL currently protects around 20 million holidaymakers and travellers each year.
If a travel business with an ATOL ceases trading, the ATOL scheme protects consumers who had booked holidays with the firm. It ensures consumers can return home and do not lose their money.
The scheme is designed to reassure consumers that their money is safe, and will provide assistance in the event of a travel business failure.
It is vital that governments, regulators and the flying public understand the balance between protecting consumer rights and protecting sustainable air services. Appropriate regulations, globally coordinated, can give passengers confidence while ensuring the freedom to fly.
Rather than regulations “defending” passengers, they should be framed as a partnership between consumers and the industry, to encourage competition, innovation, consumer confidence and enhanced air connectivity.
