Are you planning your next holiday with your family or friends? Or maybe you’re thinking about taking an adventure on your own? Whatever your travel plans, it’s important to make smart decisions when booking your trip and prepare yourself for anything by making sure you’ve covered the essentials. This includes booking your holiday on a credit card where possible, taking out insurance, and always checking your holiday is covered by ATOL protection.
ATOL protection and package holidays
ATOL protection is a legal requirement for all UK travel companies selling package holidays (holidays that include a flight). It means that if your holiday provider ceases trading, you won’t lose out as all of the contents of your package holiday are protected. Please note, non-UK based travel organisations that sell package holidays are not required to offer the same level of financial protection.
ATOL protection and independently purchased flights and accommodation
If you book flights and accommodation separately, you may discover your trip is not protected if your travel company ceases trading. We believe that it’s important to financially protect yourself at all times and we’re certain you do too, so make sure you check for ATOL protection when you’re making your holiday plans.
