Financial Protection

ATOL. Protecting You, and Your Holiday.


As the popularity of overseas holidays have grown, so too has the exposure of travellers becoming stranded should the travel company suffer financial insolvency.  


To ensure that the unregulated travel sector does not fall into similar circumstances again, the government realised that consumers required protection, should the travel agency face difficulties. Royal Travel has attained the Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (ATOL) whereby we can provide our customers with an ATOL protected holiday. This gives confidence they will not be stranded abroad and if they have not yet travelled, then the ATOL protection will provide a full refund of their holiday in the unlikely event of our insolvency.


When you purchase an ATOL protected air holiday package or flight plus holiday from Royal Travel, you will receive an ATOL Certificate from us that confirms your arrangements and your protection under our ATOL license.


Many of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. However, ATOL protection does not necessarily apply to all holidays and travel services provided by Royal Travel. Please check with us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. Your ATOL certificate will detail which parts of you trip are ATOL protected.


Kindly refer to our booking conditions for information, or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to:


Our ATOL licence number is 11310 and can be verified on the ATOL website
