The ATOL Protection Contribution is set at £2.50 and is a per passenger charge payable by ATOL holders. It is set by the CAA after consultation with and approval from the Secretary of State. Its level is kept under constant review, to ensure sufficient available liquidity is maintained in the fund, and will continue to be reviewed as the Thomas Cook failure is dealt with.
