The March 2021 ATOL renewal round presented plenty of challenges for travel businesses trying to renew their licences.
The late and non-renewing lists were much longer than usual. Unlike last year there was no extension this time round. Many firms simply ran out of time to complete the process, and fulfill offer criteria before their licence expired.
The total number of ATOL holders fell to around 1,500, down from more than 1,800 at the last pre-pandemic renewal in September 2019 – a fall of almost 15%.
Here are four key learnings from the renewals we processed for our clients.
