ABTOT is a travel trade association, whose members are UK and Irish travel organisers.
ABTOT is approved by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
ABTOT has been approved as a franchise of the CAA and we hold our own franchise ATOL, to protect flight inclusive packages. ABTOT ATOL Franchise.
Our responsibilities as an approved BEIS body are:
Ultimately, our aim is to give you trust and confidence when booking your holiday with an ABTOT member, and the peace of mind that there are rules of membership our members must comply with to ensure you have a holiday that is fully protected.
ABTOT members are fully compliant with the new regulations
ABTOT members can meet their legal obligations for protecting both flight and non-flight holidays under one single scheme which is known as “ABTOT ATOL Franchise”.
Flight inclusive packages sold by our members are protected under ABTOT’s ATOL Franchise. The CAA remains the regulator and applicants to our franchise scheme must complete part of the ATOL application but most of the administration is handled by ABTOT’s administration team.
Working to protect you
We can’t stop things from going wrong – but we can do all that we can to sort things out promptly when they do.
Any ABTOT-protected holiday sold to you in the UK or Ireland by an ABTOT member is protected financially in the event of the company’s failure. So if things do go wrong, it’s a straightforward process to get a refund or get you home.
