These days, with the use of the Internet, reliable sources and social media, consumers are more often than not booking with well known tour operators – or at least doing their homework on less known companies.
Just because you might not have heard of the tour company before, does not mean that they are unreliable; however, it does mean that you need to take extra precautions prior to paying any money for their services.
The steps below are ways in which you can protect yourself against being left out of pocket by unreliable or unknown operators
■ Check that the company is registered with ABTA - they ensure that holidaymakers remain confident in the holiday products that they buy from their members.
■ It’s good practice to pay for your holiday and any extras with a debit or credit card as this carry’s some protection if there is an issue with the service you have purchased.
■ Google it! Jump online and run a quick search for the tour operator you are planning on booking with. It won’t take long to uncover any negative review or stern warnings from the authorities or previous customers. Make sure you don’t just look at the company’s website as they can easily modify their reviews!
■ If the travel company is a registered UK company, then you can find more information about the company on the Companies House website. Run a search for the travel company, and you’ll find out when the company was registered, and when it started operating as a limited company. This is a great method to determine just how long the operator has been in business.
