ATOL certificates kick in to tackle consumer confusion

Who are BL Claims Solicitors

BL Claims Solicitors specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and travel claims, providing our clients with hands-on support, nationally.

We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset

The ATOL scheme ensures that your money is protected if you book a package or flight-plus holiday and the travel provider then goes bust.  If you are already abroad when the travel company fails then the ATOL scheme secures your repatriation.  It is administered by the CAA.  The number of holidays that benefit from ATOL protection was extended earlier this year through the introduction of a new category of flight plus holidays.  For more information read my earlier blog:

A warning though; not all categories of holidays will be covered.  Click through website sales and some holidays sold by airlines are not caught by the ATOL reforms and further legislation will be needed in the future if the government chooses to tighten up consumer protection in this area.
