Abta is in the event a company goes bust, not in the cases we have.
Crucially, did you book the jet2 flights separately from the YGT holiday?
if so use your insurance. Portugal is still open so it isn’t really their issue yet. It’s like when you miss a flight connection but it wasn’t on the same ticket so you still lose part of your journey.

I’d accept their offer of a reschedule as they are being fair.
Flights, transfers, hotel and golf was all booked through YGT.

Regardless of what they are offering re: alternative dates later in the year or credit notes. I just want to know if legally we're allowed to ask for our money back! If not then I'll have to go through my travel insurance to reclaim the money lost as our group are unlikely to all be available to travel together again!

Then ask them how the are arranging to get you there for your hotel booking. (I imagine they can't).
They accept that, and to compensate us are offering a credit note, the trouble is I can't see us all being able to spend such a big amount of money in the foreseeable future on golf breaks! We are all unlikely to be available at the same time again!

My understanding is that if a business puts together the whole package ie flights, hotels and golf then they are a travel agent, need to be ABTA registered and must give a full refund

What does your atol certificate say? If it’s single contract you should be in luck.

5.5 If your Package includes a flight, we will issue you with an ATOL Certificate. This will state that it is for a "Single Contract Package" when you have booked a Single Contract Package with us, or alternatively it will state "Multi Contract Package" for this type of booking

Hello ,

We do not have any concerns about your destination as there are no cases there at present. Also, given the time between now and your trip, we anticipate there being no impact.

However, if the FCO or WHO prohibit travel to your destination and you are unable to travel there over your chosen dates, the following would apply:

- We would look to move your trip to a new destination that offers a like-for-like experience, subject to availability
- We would look to move your trip to new dates for the same experience, subject to availability
- We would look to refund the cost of your trip, failing the above

That's not true as it even says in the description. They can act as agent to book the flights if its clear when you book. This is now quite common in low cost carrier model in which we live.
Says in which description? They sold them accommodation and flights through a carrier. That’s 2 of the things required to class it as a package

As a quick question to the OP. Did you pay for this in one transaction? Or got one bill/costing? Or did you have to pay multiple deposits? Eg 1 for the flights and a separate transaction for the hotel?

All paid in one lump sum to Your Golf Travel, nearly £5,000 in total for 7 of us. We all paid one guy via Bank Transfer and he then paid them via Debit card.
