Travel is heavily regulated, particularly in the UK and Europe. Operating within the rules can be tricky. Thankfully, many of our people spent time working for the UK regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority. So we bring a unique perspective to the table along with our years of regulatory know-how.More on our regulatory services

"We asked TTC to help us secure an ATOL licence to launch Trip.com in the UK market. Simon and the team have been fundamental in getting the licence approved. Working with them is like having an extended team member we can call on at any time."
"Knowing that the TTC team are finance experts who also have a deep understanding of the travel industry is the reason we have remained a client for so long. We are delighted with the day-to-day finance work and long-term strategic planning they have carried out for us."
"The TTC team were fantastic to work with, and they understood the travel industry as well as the challenges we were facing. Martin and Sarah shared some insightful analysis that, as a CEO, helped me to have confidence in the modelling and the decision I was making."
"We appointed TTC to assist with the regulatory aspects of carving Travelopia out of the TUI Group. Martin and his team worked closely with the senior management team throughout the very complex transaction process, providing advice and guidance on all licensing and bonding matters. TTC's in-depth knowledge of the ATOL, ABTA and IATA requirements and their previous travel sector transaction experience was invaluable in helping us conclude a successful sale to KKR."
“We approached the TTC regulatory team to assist with our ATOL application. After speaking to Alison, we realised we needed a specialist travel accountant to prepare our management accounts and get our application over the line. Luckily the TTC Finance team were able to pick this up. Using TTC for both regulatory and financial assistance made a painful process so much easier.”
“TTC helped our businesses survive the Covid-19 pandemic. From financial modelling to supporting negotiations with various regulators and advising on strategic decisions, the team's support was invaluable. Matt Ansell is much more than an accountant; he brought a broad experience of running a business and seeing it from all angles which has been an immense help to us.”
“TTC is integral to our finance function. Outsourcing the financial director-level work has helped us focus on business recovery after the pandemic. Having TTC at our Board meetings brings clarity and confidence when making critical decisions. Everyone at TTC is friendly and professional, which makes working with them very easy.”
“We worked with the TTC team through one of the darkest periods in travel industry history. They are responsive and clear and have shouldered some of the higher-level finance work brilliantly. There is all manner of expertise within the company, and they are also extremely nice people. What can I say? I recommend them!”
“We contacted TTC to help with our ATOL application as it was taking longer than we hoped. Based overseas, we were struggling to communicate with the regulator working in a different timezone. The TTC team adjusted their working hours to suit our business and used their in-depth knowledge of the ATOL scheme to push through the application. Simon was pivotal in getting our ATOL granted quickly.”
“TTC Finance has improved the level of financial insight we have in our business by implementing trading dashboards and streamlining our financial reporting. They are fantastic to work with and always provide us with advice, ideas and solutions.”
