Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill

Explanatory Notes

Overview of the Bill

1 The Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill 2017 is intended to modernise ATOL, the consumer protection scheme for package holidays that include a flight, allowing for UK businesses to trade across Europe more easily, and ensuring a wider body of consumers are protected. It will also provide an ability for the scheme to adapt to future trends, including changes that may be brought about as the United Kingdom leaves the European Union (EU).
