What is ATOL?

Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (“ATOL”) is a consumer protection scheme operated by the Civil Aviation Authority (“CAA”) under the direction of the UK government.

All travel companies selling air holiday packages and flights in the UK are required by law to hold an ATOL, which is granted after the company has met the CAA’s licensing requirements.

ATOL is there to provide refunds and repatriation to the consumer in the event that their travel provider fails
