Who can apply?

If you work or have ever worked for an ABTA Member, ABTA itself or other organisations within the travel industry who are engaged in the sale of ABTA products, you can apply to ABTA LifeLine, ABTA’s charity, for help. Spouses/partners, widows/widowers and children of employees are also eligible – other main dependents will be considered too.

The Trustees consider all applications where there is a real personal need – so, for example, a business that is in trouble wouldn't be eligible. Take a look at People we've helped to see how ABTA LifeLine has been making a difference.
