Tips on making your booking safer

1.   Always book a ATOL (Air Tour Operator’s License) protected trip

It is necessary to book for as much as possible of your travel requirements with one company which issues an invoice to cover the total cost of your travel. Make sure the company holds ATOL from Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) so as to sell such basis. ATOL requires all holders to assure clients that should the company in any of their travel destination fail to deliver; full refund is made making it possible for you to continue in your trip abroad when one player fails to meet its end of the bargain. Besides, if any part of your trip goes wrong, the ATOL holder has the responsibility of fixing it out for you.

2.   Use a credit card to pay for your travel

In the event that you cannot book your trip under ATOL, pay for all your transactions by credit card, regardless of whether you are booking direct or via travel agent. This will serve as a protection under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, section 10. Nonetheless, you may have to pay credit card charges while booking which will add cost to your travel. The charges are worth the trouble, though. Visa debit cards are also offering users protection should any company go under. Paying by cash, bank transfer, cheque, credit card or prepaid/electronic cards, on the other hand, do not receive the cover the act when something go wrong. Also note that there is no cover for transactions below 100 dollars in value effected using a credit card.

3.   Have a travel insurance cover that has End Supplier failure

While this is a somewhat new concept, it comes with many benefits including enabling you to be covered in the event that some aspects of your holiday go wrong leaving you with additional costs or irrecoverable losses while sorting out your travel plans. Always buy a policy with this kind of cover even while booking a package because these policies cover every other little piece that come with holidaying such as car parking that are often overlooked. 

Caution

Such holiday websites are merely virtual doorways, with absolutely no actual products and no background in travel. You will be rightly disappointed to visit their local store only to find that they online market products with no expressed right to handle real transactions and hence no assurance for quality of their packages. So, always do sufficient research to establish the credibility of your travel supermarket to avoid future regrets.

Conclusion
