ABTA LifeLine

ABTA LifeLine is ABTA’s charity for all of our Members’ employees, past and present, retired or not and their dependants. Our mission is to look after our travel industry colleagues when they or their families need our help.

We award grants to help colleagues suffering real financial hardship caused by life changing medical conditions, bereavement, disability and domestic violence among other things. When the unexpected happens we are here to get you back on your feet by easing the financial strain during those difficult circumstances.

Our30th anniversary is fast approaching, so to mark the occasion there will be several fundraising initiatives at this year's Travel Convention. Here are ways you can get involved to help support travel industry colleagues in times of need. 

£1 Per Employee Appeal
Show your support by joining our £1 per employee appeal. 

Simply donate £1 for every employee within your organisation and we will acknowledge your pledge on stage during The Travel Convention in the Azores! 

No matter how big or small your company, each pound counts and can make a significant difference.
