Broadway Travel confirmed as the latest ATOL accredited body

Date: 16 November 2012

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is today pleased to announce that Broadway Travel Service (Wimbledon) Ltd has been confirmed as an accredited body under the ATOL financial protection scheme.

Broadway Travel’s status as an accredited body offers travel organisers an additional option for complying with the ATOL Regulations 2012, as members of accredited bodies are not required to hold their own ATOL to sell protected holidays. The move is also good news for consumers, who will benefit from the financial protection now offered by Broadway Travel and its members.

The CAA thanks Broadway Travel for their co-operation throughout the application process.

As well as establishing accredited bodies, key elements of the regulations include: the introduction of ‘Flight-Plus’ sales into the scheme; the requirement for ATOL holders to have written agency agreements with their agents; and travel businesses to provide ATOL Certificates to consumers with any ATOL-protected sale.
