Nearly 13,000 clients are abroad and estimates for the number of people booked to travel are as high as 50,000. The UK Civil Aviation Authority is currently repatriating clients abroad and most of those yet to travel will be protected under the ATOL scheme. However, flight-only clients may lose out.
