The 2018 Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements regulations apply, throughout the UK, to the sale of packages and linked travel arrangements (LTAs).
The regulations explicitly place liability for the performance of the travel services included in the package on the organiser irrespective of whether the travel services are performed by third parties.

(b) linked travel arrangements (LTAs) (defined below), which are concluded on or after the commencement date of 1 July 2018.

(b) packages offered, and linked travel arrangements facilitated, occasionally on a not-for-profit basis for a limited group of travellers;
