The ATOL scheme aims to protect you from losing money or experiencing difficulties abroad if the travel company you
booked with held an ATOL and stops trading. You may be able to make a claim under the scheme if:
We maintain a list of the latest ATOL Holder Failures, where you will find up-to-date information and how to claim.
Each ATOL holder’s situation is different, so it is important that you read the information we publish carefully.
ATOL protection applies to most air trips abroad that are booked with UK travel companies. If you are covered by
ATOL, your travel company should have given you an ATOL Certificate when you booked.
The Air Travel Trust Fund (ATTF) is the primary source of funding when an ATOL holder fails and monies from the ATTF
are used to meet refund and repatriation costs arising from a failure. The Fund is administered on behalf of the Air
Travel Trust (ATT) by the Civil Aviation Authority. The Payment Policy can be found in our 'Air Travel Trust'
