ABTA Protection Plan

Insuring your Travel Agency against the financial failure of end suppliers

In association with International Passenger Protection (IPP), ABTA now has the ABTA Protection Plan insurance available for members to insure themselves against the financial failure of a selected end supplier not protected by any other scheme.

This policy can be taken out by the agent for their own benefit in the case of and holiday arrangements they make that have been booked with a principal (such as an airline, hotel or car hire). Also cover is available for a selected few tour operators, car hire brokers and accommodation agencies or brokers by paying an additional premium for cover under Additional Services on the insurance bookings screen. CLICK HERE for current list of 'additional services' currently approved by IPP under this plan. If an additional services company that you use regularly is not listed then please have an official from that company contact Michelle Irvine, Lorna Dean or Josie Batten at IPP so they can be added accordingly.

All principals booked through ABTA members such as Airline, Car Hire, Train, Hotel, Car Ferry companies etc are included in the base premium and you will only be asked to select the airline name from a list provided online.

IPP has created an exclusive online facility for ABTA Members which can be accessed by clicking here.
