As a golf specialist tour operator, your number one priority is creating fantastic getaways for travellers just as enthusiastic about their sport as you are. Whether you specialise in the golfing experience of a specific destination, such as Scotland, Spain, and Turkey, or you’re looking to provide relaxing, thrilling, scenic, or adventurous golfing trips around the world, you want to focus on what matters to your business and your keen travellers.  

At Protected Trust Services (PTS) our team is made up of travel experts who understand the different needs of each individual tour operator. Your business is unique and only you can see the results of different types of support and determine which are the most vital to you. This is why we strive to provide an ever-evolving and diverse package of support for all our lovely members while ensuring that your golf specialist business is not limited or restricted by us. 

The PTS support system means that you have complete freedom and control over your business, so while we provide a sturdy foundation and take care of the little things, you can focus on growing and expanding your reach to even more excited golfers. Plus, as a member of PTS, not only do we provide a foundation for your business, but that same safety and protection extends to your loyal customers, so they can enjoy their next golfing getaway with complete peace of mind knowing that their monies are protected.  

“Since switching to PTS, we have not only seen a great response from clients who are looking for the most secure way of protecting their funds, but we have also benefitted from the supplier network offered and managed to reduce costs with bed banks and merchant services. I would not hesitate in recommending PTS to any other tour operator looking for a secure solution.”  

— Glen Renton, Glencor Golf 

With our package, all of the stressful and time-consuming factors of your business can be taken care of at reduced costs, in reduced time, and most of all, stress-free. PTS membership ensures that you are 100% Package Travel Regulations compliant, not only for your peace of mind but to ensure that when consumers see our logo on your website, they know instantly that they are booking their golf holiday with complete financial protection.  

Our one-stop software system and supplier partner database also ensure that you can keep admin, bookings, staff, itineraries, and even your suppliers organised all in one place. Our system makes it simple to add your trusted suppliers to your business account so that you can easily attach them to your bookings and request monies paid to them efficiently. If you’re looking to switch suppliers or just need something new to complete your golfing package, we have a large database of trusted supplier partners providing great discounts just for PTS members.  

All of this comes alongside our expert travel trust account system. This provides a transparent but secure form of financial protection that benefits the business and the consumer in equal measure. When your clients book their holiday, they simply pay directly into the trust account where their monies are separated and reconciled daily so that if you or your client need to know exactly where their monies are at any point, you can find out down to the penny. After the monies have been paid into the trust account, they are released on request to pay suppliers, to refund consumers, and once the consumer’s holiday is complete, to return to you your profits.  

Not only this, but we ensure you have some of the best financial protection in the UK travel industry with our franchise ATOL. Whether you want to apply through us or acquire your own, if you need an ATOL, our resident experts can help to make it as smooth to apply as possible.  

“Here at Golf Mates Travel PTS is a core part of the business as we are sending a large number of clients all over the world and we rely on all their monies being safe. As with any business, support is key when issues arise, and PTS have an excellent response and training service when needed. Together we are building our future to be a successful travel business using the best and most reliable platforms that are available.”  

— Ian Cox, Golf Mates Travel 

The support potential as a PTS member does not stop here. With competitive rates on merchant services and currency hedging, our friendly team that is always happy to help, enhanced profits to keep your business growing, and constant development to ensure our support is some of the best on the market, we at PTS are always growing with our members to ensure that each golf specialist we support can reach their full potential without limitations.

This is why we have begun our journey in business with the global golf tourism organisation, IAGTO, to provide even better and more diverse support to all our lovely golf specialist tour operator members.
