ATOL Protection

ATOL ProtectedSportif Dive are a fully bonded ATOL Tour operator and therefore we have a duty of care and financial security in place to protect your booking and monies paid to us. Many companies selling holidays do not have this level of bonding and if you book elements of your holiday separately you will not be protected in the event of a company or airline collapses.


ATOL Certificate
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
 

Benefits of booking with an ATOL Tour Operator

Government Guaranteed Protection
ATOL is a licensing scheme for travel companies which is operated by the UK's Civil Aviation Authority.

Peace of mind because you can book with confidence
ATOL regularly carries out financial checks on the travel companies it licenses every year.

If you book a complete holiday with a FULLY BONDED ATOL travel company, like
Sportif Dive, you will be protected. Some companies only provide a part protection ie you will be refunded if they go out of business but do not have the same obligations as an ATOL licensed travel company.
An ATOL licensed company is responsible for each component of your holiday. If there is a problem with one of them, before you go or when you're away, they must sort it out and provide you with help and assistance. Be sure to check the cover you have. Always ask for an ATOL CERTIFICATE to prove you are protected.

Beware....

If you build your own holiday and book direct with an airline or hotel you won't be fully protected. 

For more information from the CAA and How to check you’re covered see here

If you book your flights and hotel separately online, it may be cheaper, but your holiday and money will be at risk if one of the companies providing the components collapses. You could be left with holiday accommodation and no flight to get there, or be stranded abroad.

Sportif Dive are fully ATOL protected so your money is safe and we provide assistance if you have problems with delays or other unexpected problems with your holiday.
