As the largest industry in the world, the travel sector faces constant pressure to validate its operating arrangements: to meet the requirements of both generic corporate regulatory concerns as well as those specific to the industry.
In the last few years there has been extensive debate on how the Package Travel Regulations apply to those who sell travel services. We are involved in the legal debate on package travel and maintain a close eye on the regulatory impact to operations. We:
- advise on how the Package Travel Regulations apply to a travel business
- guide you on what your business needs to do to comply with the regulations
- draft documentation to ensure your business is compliant.
Additionally, the burning issue of ATOL protection and the manner in which flights can be sold and made available gives rise to more pressure for travel businesses. We regularly advise on how the ATOL Regulations apply to your travel business and operations.
Through our strong relationships with travel industry bodies we have acquired an excellent appreciation of the financial protection schemes available. We can guide you on how such schemes work and interrelate with your business terms and conditions whilst complying with ATOL and Package Travel Regulations.
We know that the travel industry cares about its long term relationships and how it trades and who it trades with. In everything we do with you and for you, we will seek to enhance your relationships in the corporate world.
