Complete Peace of Mind when you Book - Guaranteed
Having been involved in the travel industry for such a long time, we know that financial security is vitally important when booking your holiday and we are delighted to announce a new arrangement for all clients booking from 19th July 2019 onwards to provide complete peace of mind when booking a stay through us.
As you will know, most of the largest UK tour operators organising flight-inclusive packages need to be members of ABTA and if you are booking flights you will be used to looking out for the IATA logo before booking. Our own business is far simpler as we don’t offer flight bookings and specialise in what we know best – luxury villa and apartment rentals in Barbados.
For us, membership of these large organisations isn’t appropriate or necessary but our first priority has always been to run our business in a financially prudent manner and we have developed an unequalled reputation amongst property owners and their property managers in Barbados for our professionalism and, specifically, the promptness of all payments.
We have always offered the facility to pay deposits and balance payments by credit card at no extra cost and whilst this does provide financial protection, we understand that not everyone chooses to pay in this way. Having looked at the options open to us, we are today announcing membership of a new scheme which offers total financial protection; however you choose to pay: Travel Regulation Insolvency Protection or TRIP.
TRIP is a specialist insurance scheme available to all tour operators, travel agents, holiday operators and accommodation providers and provides cover in accordance with ''The Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018''. All bookings made through us from 19th July 2019 are fully insured under the scheme for the initial deposit and the balance paid and the policy even includes repatriation if required, arising in the very unlikely event of cancellation or curtailment of your travel arrangements due to insolvency.
The insurance has been arranged by Towergate Travel through Zurich Insurance PLC. You will find further information about our Financial Protection here or please contact us for further information. We look forward to organising your next holiday to Barbados, safe in the knowledge that your holiday is fully protected.
