CAA – The Civil Aviation Authority

Destination Golf Limited, as a trading name of P & P Associates, holds an ATOL licence to ensure total financial protection of your holiday. The air travel holidays on this website are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the ATOL number is 5360. ATOL protection extends primarily to customers who book and pay in the UK. ATOL is a financial protection scheme managed by the CAA.

All travel companies selling air holiday packages and flights in the UK are required by law to hold a licence called an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (“ATOL”), which is granted after the company has met the strict CAA licensing requirements.

Each ATOL holder is issued with a unique ATOL number, which can be checked on the ATOL website, and must contribute to a protection fund called the Air Travel Trust (ATT).

In the event of an ATOL holder’s failure, the ATOL Scheme ensures customers who paid and contracted with the ATOL holder for an air holiday package or a flight, do not lose the money paid over or are not stranded abroad.

The ATOL Scheme does not cover bookings and payments made to airlines, or to airline agents where airline tickets or a similar airline booking confirmation has been issued.

IATA – The International Air Transport Association

Air transport is one of the most dynamic industries in the world. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is its global trade organization. For over 60 years, IATA has developed the commercial standards that built a global industry. Today, IATA’s mission is to represent, lead and serve the airline industry.

Representing – IATA seeks to improve understanding of the industry among decision makers and increase awareness of the benefits that aviation brings to national and global economies.

Leading -IATA’s aim is to help airlines help themselves by simplifying processes and increasing passenger convenience while reducing costs and improving efficiency. Moreover, safety is IATA’s number one priority, and IATA’s goal is to continually improve safety standards.

Serving – IATA ensures that people and goods can move around the global airline network as easily as if they were on a single airline in a single country.

For the benefit for all parties involved:

  • For consumers, IATA simplifies the travel and shipping processes, while keeping costs down. Passengers can make one telephone call to reserve a ticket, pay in one currency and then use the ticket on several airlines in several countries.
  • IATA allows airlines to operate safely, securely, efficiently and economically under clearly defined rules.
  • IATA serves as an intermediary between airlines and passenger as well as cargo agents via neutrally applied agency service standards and centralized financial systems.
  • A large network of industry suppliers and service providers gathered by IATA provides solid expertise to airlines in a variety of industry solutions.
  • For governments, IATA seeks to ensure they are well informed about the complexities of the aviation industry to ensure better, long-term decisions.
