Changes to ATOL certificates

Article content

4 October 2012 by Luke McCormick

From October 2012, when you book an ATOL (Air Travel Operators' License) protected holiday with Wexas, you will be given a new ‘ATOL Certificate' as soon as you pay over any money for your holiday.

All travel companies are required by the government to provide this new document as part of the ATOL scheme that protects UK holidaymakers if their travel company collapses.

ATOL is a scheme that protects UK holidaymakers if their travel company collapses. Travel companies that sell air holidays and flights are required to be licensed under the ATOL scheme, which is backed by the UK Government.

Your ATOL Certificate is proof that the holiday you have booked is protected by the ATOL scheme and will tell you:

• What's protected by ATOL
• Who's covered
• Who is providing this protection (the travel company's name and ATOL number)

Your ATOL Certificate will also tell you what to do in the unlikely event that your travel company stops operating.

All ATOL Certificates are coloured yellow. Whenever you receive one please ensure you keep it somewhere safe and take it with you on holiday so you know how to make an ATOL claim if you need to.
