ABTA is keeping Members up to date as travel restarts and there are lots of places where you can find more information, which we have highlighted below.
To access this guidance, make sure you’re registered for the Member zone by visiting: abta.com/member-zone
You’ll need your ABTA number and work email address.
Follow these five links below to start keeping up to date with changes in travel and help your customers travel and book with confidence.
1. Sign up to ABTA Today
By registering for the Member Zone you'll automatically receive our weekly newsletter, ABTA Today, every Thursday afternoon keeping you up to date with the latest news, guidance and advice.
2. Visit our Coronavirus advice for Members page
Go to abta.com/coronavirusguidance which helps Members navigate the biggest issues arising from the pandemic. This includes guidance on refunds and how to deal with the trickier questions from your clients, together with recordings of our bi-weekly Conference calls and much more.
3. Download our 'COVID-19: Country listings, FCDO travel advice, and UK inbound border entry rules guide'
Go to abta.com/FCDO-Countries-Guide which shows a list of all countries and the traffic light category allocated to them. Where countries don't have an FCDO “all but essential” COVID-19 travel restriction we also include details of mandatory destination entry requirements. This document is constantly being updated.
4. Sign up to our Operational bulletins
Through monitoring world events, FCDO travel advice updates, and travel health updates, we keep you informed of any significant event or incident that may affect your programme or customers. You can sign up to receive bulletins by selecting the regions that you would like to receive information about, via your profile on the Member Zone homepage.
5. Use our marketing toolkit to help you share essential information
To help members share essential information and advice for customers, we have developed digital assets and stock social media posts which link through to our latest consumer campaign #ReadySteadyTravel. Members can access the marketing toolkit here: abta.com/marketingtoolkit
The campaign has a Q&A to help answer the most common questions about travelling during the pandemic and a step-by-step guide to help holidaymakers prepare for their next trip. To help Members share the advice with their customers, we have suggested social media posts and assets in our marketing toolkit. Find out more at abta.com/readysteadytravel
Finally, meet Den Ashby, ABTA's Member Engagement Manager who is available if Members are looking for further support and guidance.
