People booking flights for their holidays this year may be interested in the advice offered by ABTA, the Travel Association.
Anyone considering booking cheap flights and jetting off to warmer climes for their holidays may want to take heed of the advice issued by ABTA, the Travel Association.
Following the substantial disruption to air travel caused by the eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull, the organisation has advised travellers to book their holidays through ABTA members.
In an advertising released by the association, it explains that tourists who book with ABTA members can relax and enjoy their holiday because these companies offer “expert advice and unrivalled help in times of trouble”.
The organisation added: “ABTA members helped thousands of customers get home during last month’s travel chaos. It wasn’t easy, but we did it together.”
ABTA stressed that holidaymakers who book with its members will receive greater protection in the event of travel disruption, such as that caused by the volcanic eruption.
In April, British airspace was closed for six days due to concerns over the ash cloud. Many other European nations were also affected, leaving thousands of travellers stranded around the world due to flight cancellations.
