We are a fully ATOL protected UK Travel Agent. Our ATOL Number is 10880.
Certain flights are exempt by the ATOL scheme, mainly easyJet or flights not departing from a UK airport, this is because comprehensive financial protection already exists. We are an agent of easyJet and many other airlines and we issue your e-ticket immediately. The monies you have paid are held in a trust account. This account is administered by an independent trustee, approved by the CAA. The trustee does not release the funds to us until we can demonstrate that we have paid the airline. (We pay for every ticket immediately, so they have already been paid). Should the airline fail, we can claim on our scheduled airline failure insurance policy, in order to either refund you or book a suitable alternative.
