ATOL Protected Meaning

  • ATOL protection typically applies to package holidays that include flights.

ATOL protected

The term “ATOL protected” typically refers to the protection provided by the Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (ATOL) scheme. The ATOL scheme is a financial protection program operated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in the United Kingdom. It is designed to protect consumers who purchase package holidays or flights from ATOL-licensed travel companies.

When a travel company holds an ATOL license, it means that they have met certain financial and other criteria set by the CAA. If the travel company goes out of business or faces financial difficulties, the ATOL protection ensures that consumers who have booked holidays or flights with that company are not left stranded or out of pocket.

If you book a holiday or flight with an ATOL-protected company and the company ceases trading, the ATOL protection will kick in. This protection may include assistance in returning home if you are already abroad and refunds or alternative arrangements for future travel.

It’s important to note that ATOL protection typically applies to package holidays that include flights and some flight-only bookings. It does not cover all types of travel arrangements, so it’s recommended to check with the travel company whether your booking is ATOL-protected and to review the details of the protection offered.
