Who we are

SBIT (Seasonal Businesses in Travel) is a unique and diverse group of over 200 outbound British travel and service companies operating throughout the summer and winter holiday seasons.

Our Aim

Our aim is to protect British jobs, to continue to deliver value and choice to British holidaymakers and to preserve the significant contribution the SMEs in the outbound holiday sector contribute to the economies of both the UK and the EU.

How ?

  • By raising awareness of how the ability to seamlessly second UK staff to the EU during peak holiday periods is critical to the survival and growth of British travel businesses and underpins the value and choice offered to UK holidaymakers over the last 40 years.
  • By lobbying governments in the UK and the EU to ensure that negotiated agreements preserve secondment rights with as little friction as possible thereby protecting the jobs of the estimated 25,000 UK citizens currently employed in the EU supporting this industry.
