Frequently Asked Questions about Travel

The travel sector covers a wide range of businesses. Which independent bodies are responsible for the rights of the consumer?

Customers using air travel are protected by ATOL, or Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing. This provides refunds for customers when airlines are unable to carry their passengers. Most UK tour operators must hold an ATOL licence, as they need one to sell air travel. ATOL members will have had their businesses inspected by the Civil Aviation Authority.

What’s the difference between ATOL and ABTA?

ABTA , The Travel Association (as it’s officially called) has a wider remit than ATOL, as it covers package tour operators and the travel agency industry generally - not just air travel. ABTA is responsible for industry standards, providing financial protection for customers, offering a route for complaint, and lobbying for the travel industry to government.

Who should I go to with rail travel complaints?

Rail travel complaints can be taken to Passenger Focus, except for journeys in London and parts of Hertfordshire, which may be covered by London Travelwatch.

Which train operating company should I complain to?

If you're unsure which rail company to complain to, the National Rail Enquires journey planner will help you work out which operator was responsible for your journey.
