People who book cheap flights often face a dilemma when paying for their journey due to regulations about support and assistance should the carrier face financial difficulties. One of the key issues addressed in the manifesto published by ABTA - The Travel Association on March 10th aims to provide more support to travellers.
It stated that work needs to be done to "reform consumer protection for holidays, flights and accommodation to ensure that all the travelling public are protected". The announcement could provide additional peace of mind to anyone booking trips and travelling on flights to India, for example.
