Trust and Safety
Accreditation and Consumer Protection
With the progression of technology in the travel sector and the ever increasing use of apps, websites, smart phones and the like to book travel services, the market place is swarming with home start ups, small businesses and individuals who sell anything from insurance to flights. However good this sounds, there’s always an element of risk. Are you booking through an accredited agency? Are the services you’ve booked guaranteed? Will you be covered by travel insurance for agency insolvency? These are all important questions and with the deregulation of the Australian Travel industry in 2014 and the Travel Compensation Fund redundancy, it’s now more than ever that you need to be travelling with a trusted, fully accredited travel company — like us.
