To ensure your application is processed as quickly as possible we've put together a check list for new applicants.
If you are applying for either a Standard ATOL, Small Business ATOL or Trade ATOL, before sending your application to the CAA please make sure that you have included as many of the items listed in the checklist at the end of the application form as possible.
If you are applying for a Franchise ATOL, please check with the appropriate franchise organisation before sending them your application.
We publish full lists of all ATOL charges in the Official Record Series 5 - Scheme of Charges.This details the initial application costs and the annual variation and renewal costs too.
Please ensure payment is included with your application form.
ATOL produced guidance to help you run your business within the ATOL Regulations. Read these invaluable notes to ensure you are trading correctly.
