Here at ABTOT, we know how daunting the travel bonding process can be for someone just starting out – and how time consuming it can be for those that may have gone elsewhere in the past.
We aim to make the experience less complicated.
We value personal relationships – If you want to phone us, there are no keypad options here! Call us and you’ll reach our Membership Secretary or other member of the team directly, who will be happy to help.
We value your time – We take time getting to know you so we can offer a truly personal service. We’ve established relationships with a number of affiliate partners who bring exclusive benefits for our members.
We value what you offer – Our members’ holidays are promoted to the public through the ABTOT Travel Portal, all with the goal of raising both your profile and your sales.
We’re efficient – Providing prompt responses to our prospective members. Applications can progress from initial enquiry to attaining membership within a month.
We’re an approved body – We are authorised by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), with over 20 years’ experience and our logo is recognised within the travel industry.
We help start-ups find their feet – Giving them guidance through the regulatory maze.
We help spread the cost – Members can pay for membership fees and travel bonding by interest-free instalments; spreading the cost of membership and financial protection equally over 12 months. The application fee still has to be paid upfront but this can help with cash flow.
We’re linked with Travel & General Insurance Services Limited (t&g) – Who offer a complementary and comprehensive service. They take the application to the next stage automatically, with the bonding assured if membership is approved. They also offer all the insurances that a specialist successful SME might need, including Public Liability, Professional Indemnity, and Travel Insurance.
