Frequently Asked Questions
Trailfinders Unrivalled Care & Protection
TRAILFINDERS FINANCIAL GUARANTEE
Trailfinders guarantees to make good any money paid to us in the event of the financial collapse of an airline, tour operator or any other provider. This pledge has been honoured since the foundation of Trailfinders over 49 years ago. No client has suffered financial loss or ever been left wanting.
WE ARE ATOL PROTECTED
We hold an Air Travel Organisers license granted by the Civil Aviation Authority (ATOL number 1458). This ensures that in the very unlikely event of our insolvency you will be able to continue with your holiday as planned (if you are already abroad) or be refunded in full (if your travel has not already commenced). ATOL protection extends primarily to customers who book and pay in the UK.
Additionally, we are subject to a binding obligation under the ATOL to protect clients' funds in the event of the financial collapse of an airline. Trailfinders does not charge a fee for this protection.
THE TRAILFINDERS TRUST ACCOUNT
Trailfinders is a member of the Travel Trust Association (TTA) and fully comply with their code of conduct. (Click here to view). The TTA were established in 1993 and are a trade association of over 650 independent travel agents and tour operators. The TTA provide 100% financial protection for our clients, regardless of what service they have booked or how much they've paid. All money paid to Trailfinders is secured into a Trust Account and guaranteed by the TTA.
No monies will be withdrawn from the Trust Account until our travellers have completed their itinerary, meaning your money is secure until you return home.
In the unlikely event of our insolvency, money paid in respect of future travel or for a gift card will be refunded in full.
CREDITSAFE CREDIT SCORE
Creditsafe is a company who independently conduct business credit reports, awarding businesses a score out of 100 based on how secure their finances are.
Trailfinders was awarded a score of 100/100 – meaning we’re as financially secure as you possibly can be.
BOOK EVERYTHING TOGETHER FOR EVEN FURTHER PROTECTION
Book all of your arrangements with Trailfinders as part of an inclusive package and you also benefit from the comprehensive protection offered by the European Package Regulations.
These are most comprehensive to the extent that they even cover events that are uninsurable and are not available if you book your elements separately.
