The Canny Traveller
Dealing with emergencies and unforeseen events are fundamental reasons to ensure that you
have adequate protection and insurance at the time of booking and whilst taking a well-earned
holiday. Good travel agents and tour operators will give you security through:
Air Travel Organisers Licence. The scheme protects you from losing money or
being stranded abroad when a travel firm goes out of business.
Check that your travel provider has membership with an approved body such
as ABTA; the Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust (ABTOT); the
Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO); or the Federation of Tour
Operators (FTO)
You should, however, always ask your travel company if financial protection
applies to ALL your travel arrangements. If it doesn’t, the company may be
able to offer suitable insurance to cover you.
