Are you covered if you have bought a flight-only deal on Thomas Cook Airlines?
The government made clear on Monday morning that flight-only customers – about half of Thomas Cook bookings – would be flown home even if they are not Atol protected. Atol normally applies to package holiday customers only. “Everyone on a Thomas Cook holiday with a return flight to the UK within the two weeks will be brought home,” said the Department for Transport. However, if you are flight-only, are abroad and due to fly back more than a fortnight from now, you will have to find and pay for your own flight.
