Global Travel Group announced as latest Accredited Body

Date: 23 April 2012

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is today pleased to announce that Global Travel Group is the latest travel organiser to meet the necessary criteria to become an Accredited Body.

Accredited Bodies are being established as part of reforms to the ATOL scheme, which were announced by the Government in February and come into force from 30 April. Members of Accredited Bodies can sell ATOL protected holidays without having their own ATOL, and therefore membership may well be a suitable option for some travel organisers.

The confirmation that Global Travel Group has met the CAA’s criteria to become an Accredited Body offers travel organisers an additional option for compliance with the new ATOL regulations, and the CAA thanks Global Travel Group for their co-operation throughout the application process.

Further announcements on additional organisations meeting the requirements to become an Accredited Body will be made in due course.
