ABSTRACT
The article informs that the Association of Independent Tour Operators fear that a victory for the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) in the Court of Appeal will make financial protection for consumers voluntary. A victory for the ABTA would affect agents' ability to sell dynamic packages without an Air Travel Organiser's Licensing, and could trigger a collapse of the bonding system in Great Britain.
