The Travel Trust Association is the only travel network in the UK to guarantee 100% financial protection to the consumer, ensuring total consumer confidence. With over 450 Members, we help travel entrepreneurs set up and grow their travel businesses by providing a licence to trade and the tools to grow a successful business. The TTA has over 20 years of travel industry experience, and we are eager to share our passion, expertise, skills and knowledge with our members and the rest of the travel industry.
Every TTA member will have a practicing certificate. This certificate will identify the TTA member’s number, the company to whom all payments should be made and the trustee for that member including the trustee’s address.
The Travel Protection Plan covers every service which you have booked from a travel company whether it be for transport, accommodation, entertainment or recreation.
Therefore, the Trust Account plus the guarantee will ensure that all the money which you have paid is safely protected. When you make a booking, you will be supplied with a guarantee certificate – you can see the terms of our guarantee at www.Traveltrust.co.uk/guarantee

If for any reason this is not possible, we will administer a claim for a refund of money that you have paid to a member for your holiday.
All members of the Travel Trust Association have to abide by the member Code of Conduct. This is to ensure that the customers receive the best possible service.
ABTA ended its consumer promise in 2006. This means that not all of the travel arrangements that you book through an ABTA member are necessarily protected in case of the financial failure of the travel company.
You will need to ask the ABTA member how financially secure their travel arrangements are. If the arrangements are not automatically protected, the ABTA member may be able to offer suitable insurance to cover you.
If you book with a Travel Trust Association member your money is 100% financially protected. This is achieved in two ways.
Every Travel Trust Association member deposits your money into the trust account. A trust account is a bank account designated to hold the customers' money.
Your money remains in the trust account and is supervised by an appointed trustee who is either a banker, chartered or certified accountant or a solicitor. Both the Travel Trust Association members AND the Trustee are required to authorise payments from the Trust Account.
In addition to being held in trust, your monies are also insured.
A Stand Alone Safe Seat Plan policy is an insurance policy which is issued on your behalf by the Travel Trust Association member.
It is the combination of the Trust Account and the Stand Alone Safe Seat Plan that ensures all of the money which you have paid to a Travel Trust Association member is safely protected and available to pay for those services which you have booked.
Please be aware that this is NOT a travel insurance policy. The Stand Alone Safe Seat Plan will only protect the money that you have paid to a Travel Trust Association member. You will need to take out a separate travel insurance policy to provide cover for cancellation, medical expenses and lost baggage etc. The Travel Trust Association member will be able to provide you with a travel insurance policy.
