Travel Bonds FAQs

  • Why do I need financial protection as a travel organiser, tour operator or travel agent?

    It is a legal requirement, as set out in the 2018 Package Travel Regulations (PTRs).

    If you sell packages, you must provide financial protection in the event of your insolvency. This covers all your customer prepayments and repatriation and claim costs. You can provide this through a Bond, Financial Failure Insurance (FFI) or an approved Trust Account. 

    See the 2018  Package Travel Regulations for more information.

    Why would I choose a Travel Bond as a financial protection Solution

    They are straightforward, cost effective and not administratively burdensome

    Travel Bonds by Insurance also tend to be unsecured and have additional advantages as cash sums and other business assets are not-tied-up as they would be normally to guarantee a bank bond. 

    Travel bonding is the idea way to meet your regulatory requirements and suitable for all  types of travel organisers.
