With decades of combined experience in the industry, our relationship is unrivalled in serving both UK and international travel companies in pretty much any way you might imagine:

Advice on disputes with business partners, the ASA and Trading Standards are also regular instructions.
    • The well established Commercial Team offers efficient, pragmatic advice and has been at the forefront of advising on many regulatory changes affecting the travel industry in recent years, including advising on the Package Travel Regulations 2018, the 2018 amended ATOL Regulations, GDPR and the Payment Services Directive 2.
    • In terms of Employment, Travlaw advises on employment law, HR issues, documentation, such as staff handbooks and polices and also handle claims brought by employees, often through to tribunal if needs be.

    “I have worked with Travlaw for a number of years and in that time have had to deal with many legal issues from revising booking conditions, to negotiating with ground handler contracts, to sensitive employment related matters, to difficult customers.

    The team has always been available, supportive, knowledgeable and efficient. The team constantly updates me with what’s going on in the world of travel and helps me negotiate my way around the Package Travel regs and other related legal matters. I was recommended to Travlaw by a colleague in the industry and I have personally recommended the company to many other travel-related contacts.”
