AITO: The Association of Independent Tour Operators

Financial Security for Specialist Holidays

What being assured by AITO means

Any AITO tour operator displaying the AITO logo is displaying a kitemark to certify that all of their holidays meet the highest standard. It also means that your holiday is financially protected. All AITO members must comply with UK Government regulations and our members are required to submit details of their financial protection arrangements to AITO on a regular basis.

All AITO members are required to arrange financial protection for all package holidays and tours. You can book a holiday safe in the knowledge that should something go wrong, you will be well cared for by your tour operator.

This financial protection applies to customers who are resident in the UK at the time of booking and to most overseas customers who have booked directly with the AITO tour operator in question.
