Antonio Fellino, Managing Director at Travel Republic comments: “Our unique Triple Lock Protection, included in our ‘Holiday Promise’, gives our customers real peace of mind when booking their holidays with us.
“Only recently, independent research commissioned by ABTA showed ‘choosing trusted brands and operators’ to be the most important factor for Brits when planning a holiday¹. So we’re delighted to further strengthen the financial protection we can provide our customers, and be able to act quickly and flexibly to look after them should they be due a refund.”
Fellino continues: “Unlike some of our competitors, we’ve never walked away from our responsibilities to our customers, or the accountability that comes with being a member of our industry’s trade bodies. It’s great to see that feedback from happy customers and OTA sector-leading review site scores.”
The Travel Republic Trust Account scheme is operated and overseen by independent trustees under the terms of a formal trust deed, in strict compliance with CAA requirements and with the approval of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust and applies to all flight plus hotel and / or transfer bookings. It will hold any monies paid for a holiday, excluding flights which go straight to the airline as per industry practice.
