ABTOT was formed to provide a straightforward and economical way for travel organisers to comply with their obligations under the Package Travel Regulations. ABTOT is an established travel trade association, reputable and reassuring, personable and professional, which can offer many benefits to its members.
ABTOT has been helping travel organisers with the Package Travel, Package Holiday and Package Tours Regulations 1992 (The Regulations) since 1993. Our members include small to medium sized specialist travel organisers, charities and associations. Many of our members have been with us since we began and have grown with us. They range from family owned businesses which organise tours with a personal touch a few times a year, all the way through to some larger members who are headline makers and market leaders in their field.
ABTOT has a friendly and experienced team to help guide travel organisers through the regulatory maze. As an approved Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) body, ABTOT is authorised to hold bonds on behalf of travel organisers in order to provide financial protection for customer prepayments. By joining and bonding through ABTOT, you provide peace of mind to your customers that their money is safe in the unlikely event of your failure.
