What is ATOL and what does it do for me?
ATOL is a protection scheme for air holidays and flights managed by the Civil Aviation Authority (“CAA”). All tour operators and travel firms selling air holiday packages and flights in the UK as a principal are required by law to hold a licence called an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (“ATOL”). To obtain an ATOL bond, all travel companies must comply with strict financial criteria regarding the solvency of the company.
ABTA: Destinology are not members of ABTA, since ABTA is a trade association for travel agents and not tour operators. An ABTA bond guarantees payment to a tour operator if the travel agent ceases trading. Since Destinology is a direct sell tour operator, it cuts out the middleman and therefore there is no travel agent-tour operator relationship, making ABTA bonding unnecessary. Please note, ABTA do not directly protect the consumer, consumer protection comes from ATOL.
Destinology Air Travel Trust
We have also introduced the Destinology Air Travel Trust, which protects your holiday funds. For more information about this, click here.
