Financial Protection

ABTA protection

ABTA is a travel trade association for tour operators and travel agents who have been offering expert advice and guidance for more than 70 years. ABTA leads the way for ensuring high service standards among its members (travel companies like Inspire), focusing on key issues such as health and safety for holidaymakers and encouraging responsible tourism both in the UK and abroad.
Inspire Europe Ltd holds the ABTA membership number L4341 – you can check this on the ABTA site member search at
As an ABTA member, Inspire is committed to maintaining a high standard of service to its customers by abiding by ABTA’s Code of Conduct, so you can feel confident that we offer package holidays you can trust.
Being a member of ABTA means you have the benefit of ABTA’s assistance and Code of Conduct, and confidence in Inspire and the standard of services we offer you. This includes a commitment to excellent customer service, fair terms of trading and changes to bookings.
All the package and Flight-Plus holidays we sell are covered by a scheme protecting your money if the supplier fails. Other services such as hotels or flights on their own may not be protected and you should ask us what protection is available.

ATOL protection

In addition to our ABTA protection, customers get the security of knowing that flight-inclusive package holidays on our website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. This means that in the very unlikely event that something happens to us or one of our travel suppliers, you have comfort that you will be able to get home safely and won’t be stranded abroad and if you were yet to go on holiday, you’ll get a full refund. Every part of your flight-inclusive package holiday is financially protected by the ATOL scheme.
Inspire Europe Ltd holds the ATOL number 11183 – you can check this on the CAA site ATOL search -
Please note that ATOL protection does not apply to all travel services listed. We will provide you with information on the protection that applies in the case of each holiday and travel service offered before you make your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL certificate but all of the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected.

IATA protection

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is a trade body that represents most major airlines and helps formulate industry policy on critical aviation issues. You can feel reassured that Inspire and any travel agent displaying the IATA logo has been required to meet stringent financial and professional criteria.

Inspire Europe Ltd holds the IATA number 91285552– you can check this on the IATA site's code verification -
Although IATA membership doesn't provide financial protection to passengers, this protection is provided by our ATOL protection as outlined above.
