This is the government response to the Updating ATOL consumer protection for package travel consultation. The response states how after consultation we:

  • will narrow the regulation to make clear that intermediaries who are organising a package or facilitating a flight sale and receive payment from the consumer are within scope of ATOL
  • have decided that retail agents will not be required to hold their own ATOL when selling multi-contract packages organised by an ATOL holder
  • are making extra provision in the ATOL regulations to ensure that the scheme is robust and compliant with the Package Travel Directive (PTD) 2015
  • will work on providing guidance to industry to better regulate PTD 2015 through the concept of linked travel arrangements
