Abta said the majority of travel arrangements booked by Baxter Hoare Travel were for business travel, although the company also sold some leisure travel with Atol flight-inclusive packages, flight-only under an Atol, scheduled airline tickets under its IATA licence and retail bookings.
More information on various booking types can be found on the Baxter Hoare homepage.
