ABTA LifeLine was set up to help people in the travel industry when they need it the most.

Sometimes it only takes a small change in circumstance to tip the balance and turn a manageable situation into an unmanageable one.

We award financial grants to help colleagues suffering real financial hardship caused by life changing medical conditions, bereavement, disability and domestic violence and everything in between.

From wheelchairs to emergency repairs, to help with essential daily living costs such as food and utility bills - nothing is too big or too small for us to consider.

Our vision is that everyone in the ABTA family has somewhere to turn in times of personal crisis.

We want to provide the best and most relevant support to you in your time of need. We want to make sure you know what sort of help is there for you and how you can access it.

We've helped over 800 families...


and with the Travel Industry’s amazing generosity we have raised over £1 million to help colleagues in need...

since being launched by ABTA's CEO in 1987...

but we need your help to continue - every £1 raised really does help make a difference to those in need.
