The Travel Trust Financial Guarantee
The Travel Trust Association is a trade association of Travel Agents, Tour Operators and Travel Organisers, that operate trust accounts, in order to provide financial protection for the consumer. The TTA lays down strict guidelines on how customer funds may be handled and each member must adhere to these guidelines. Every TTA member puts customer’s funds into a designated trust account, which is supervised by an independent trustee. The trustee is a Banker, Chartered or Certified Accountant, or Solicitor. Your funds are held in this account and may not be released unless you receive your holiday or your funds are released to another company that becomes responsible and provides for your financial protection.
The Travel Protection Plan covers every service which you have booked from a travel company whether it be for transport, accommodation, entertainment or recreation. It involves two aspects, firstly the Trust Account operated for your benefit. The money may only be released from the Trust to pay for the services which you have booked. Secondly there is further protection from a guarantee provided by the TTA if by reason of fraud or dishonesty, your money is not in the Trust Account under this guarantee, TTA will guarantee the financial obligation of its Members to repay such sum to you up to a maximum any one passenger of £11,000. So if you paid £2000 we guarantee we will reimburse the loss of the £2000, where it is not available for you from the Trust Account.
While we are very happy to offer assistance, SVD acts as a booking agent only. All in resort complaints should be directed to the relevant suppliers.
