Since the ABTA Convention earlier this month, high profile figures in the industry have been calling for the establishment of an independent association of travel agents.
Steve Endacott, chief executive of online travel agent On Holiday Group, says he is working with other OTAs and high street agents to set up a lobby group, to lobby ABTA and to lobby the European Union on the Package Travel Directive.
But, is there widespread support for such a body?
According to our latest Mole Poll, it seems there is.
When we asked you "Do you support plans for an independent association of travel agents" 70% of you said "yes" while 30% said "no".
