Dykes Travel claim

ABTA probes rivalry allegation

ABTA is investigating a complaint by Manchester-based Dykes Travel that its name is being used by a rival agency as part of its Web site address.

Clients of Dykes Travel who enter the Web site address are routed through to the Internet site of another agency, Travel-Travel, the trading name of ABTA member Allstars Travel.

Dykes Travel managing partner Geoff Dykes claims Travel-Travel is breaking the ABTA code of conduct, which says members should not use trading names that are not registered with the association.

Travel-Travel supervisor Chris North is looking into the complaint.
