    Very misleading information about the ATOL protection for flight only bookings with the statement "You should be ATOL-protected if you were in the UK when you booked the flight and the flight departs from the UK."

    ATOL protection is not given by Monarch if you book scheduled flights on their website using PayPal!

    From their t's & c's... "PayPal bookings will not be ATOL protected and you will not receive an ATOL Certificate".

    This is indeed the case with our booking and have got an email reply from their customer services confirming this fact.

    Does Paypal buyer protection cover airline tickets?

    Yes, but possibly not if your date of travel is more than 180 days after you made the booking. PayPal only guarantees that you can raise a dispute up to 180 days after the transaction.
