If you a book a holiday including international flights through The Exceptional Travel Company you are protected by our membership of ATOL. ATOL, short for "Air Travel Organisers' Licensing", exists to protect the public from losing money or being stranded abroad in the unlikely event of the Exceptional Travel Company becoming insolvent. Should this occur, the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) will ensure that arrangements are made to fly clients home and will arrange full refunds to any monies already paid for future bookings with us. ATOL was first introduced in 1972 and it gives comprehensive consumer protection to 28 million people in the UK who buy flights or air holidays each year.
All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. Please see our booking conditions for further information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to: www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate
