Abta urges members to voice opinion on Atol

Abta members have less than a month to voice their opinions on government plans for Atol financial protection reform.

The association has set a deadline of August 18 to complete a questionnaire seeking views on the shape of the Department for Transport’s Atol plans.

The questionnaire highlights key areas of the DfT’s proposals and is being posted to head offices of all Abta members as well as being available online.

Abta chief executive Mark Tanzer said: “This is a key window for Abta members to contribute to the debate on Atol reform.

“We want to know Abta members’ views on the proposals put forward by the Department for Transport so that we can feed these into deciding Abta’s detailed response.

“I strongly urge members to set aside some time from their busy schedules and take 20 minutes to complete our questionnaire.”

Given the scope and nature of the proposed reforms, they could impact different travel businesses in different ways, Abta said.

“Members views are essential to ensure that Abta can present a properly informed response to the DfT’s consultation,” added the association.

Abta wants the government to extend protection for all holidays, regardless of how they are booked and has highlighted the importance of including airlines and click-throughs in any reform.

Abta has set a deadline of August 18 for completion of the questionnaire and will collate the results and agree a final position.
