The article focuses on the expected increase of the levy on package holidays underwriting consumer financial protection in Great Britain in October 2009. It notes that it will increase from £1 despite bitter opposition from the trade. The consultation may offer various options such as an increase in the Air Travel Organisers' Licensing (ATOL) Protection Contribution (APC) for 18 months from October 1. However, many in the industry argued for an all-flight levy.
