Detail of outcome
This document takes forward the government’s ‘in principle’ decision announced on 3 February 2011 to reform the Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (ATOL) scheme so that it better protects consumers in the 21st century holiday market and to put the scheme’s finances back on a self-sustaining footing, allowing the current government guarantee to be withdrawn.
The document is in 2 main parts. The first sets out further details of the reforms that can be implemented by new secondary legislation, seeking stakeholders’ views on a number of detailed issues. The second part seeks stakeholders’ broader views on potential medium to longer term reforms to the ATOL scheme including areas where new primary legislation would be needed. The consultation runs for 3 months, and ends on 15 September 2011.
