What is ATOL?
ATOL is an abbreviation of Air Travel Organiser's Licence. It is a government-backed scheme operated by the Civil Aviation Authority and its purpose is to provide financial protection for consumers who purchase a package holiday or, in some circumstances, flight only products.
Travel Agents and Tour Operators that want to sell flights as part of their packages must apply for an ATOL and meet strict financial criteria to be issued one.
Get me to the Alps Ltd holds an ATOL and the license number is T7465. You can search our ATOL on the Civil Aviation Authority's website
The ATOL scheme will protect your holiday or the money you used to pay for your holiday if the organiser of your holiday were to go bust.
If your package with Get me to the Alps Ltd includes a flight then you will be covered by our ATOL. In the unlikely event of our financial failure, then the ATOL scheme will either continue to fulfil your holiday or offer you a full refund.
Every ATOL holder must pay £2.5 per passenger into the ATOL fund. This fund is what is used if an ATOL holder goes bust.
Don't worry if your package with us doesn't include a flight, you will still be covered by the Package Travel Regulations and by our Trust Account Secure promise as well as the supplier failure cover that we have in place for all our bookings.
