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 www.dykestravel.co.uk 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.
