ATOL is a protection scheme for flights and air holidays, managed by the Civil Aviation Authority. Most firms who sell air travel in the UK are required by law to hold a licence called an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (“ATOL”).
If you’ve booked and contracted with a licensed tour operator for a complete air holiday package or just a flight, ATOL protects you from losing money or being stranded abroad if the tour operator goes out of business. If a licensed firm goes out of business, the CAA can give refunds to people who can’t travel and arrange for people abroad to fly home.
At Independence travel we are fully ATOL protect, so if anything did go wrong with your holiday, you’re automatically covered by ATOL.
All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. Please see our booking conditions for further information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to: www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate
Our ATOL protection number is: 10531
