Seligo to appeal against ABTA fine

Seligo to appeal against ABTA fine

Accommodation-only supplier Seligo is appealing after it was fined by ABTA’s code of conduct committee.

ABTA confirmed Seligo had been fined but would not reveal the amount or the specific circumstances. The company’s appeal was due to take place on February 2 but heavy snow forced the hearing to be delayed. It will now be heard on March 19.

ABTA director Steven Freudmann is non-executive chairman of Alpha Prospects, which owns Seligo, and this week revealed he had stepped down as director of one of the group’s other subsidiaries, Unpackaged Holidays, because of a conflict of interests.

Any companies thought to breach ABTA’s code of conduct are required to appear before the committee, which meets around every six to eight weeks. On average the committee sees eight companies at each meeting.

The code of conduct acts as a guide to good practice, although some of its requirements are also necessary under UK and European law. It covers a broad range of issues from booking conditions and payments to accommodation standards, insurance and advertising.
