At Protected Trust Services (PTS) we believe that every travel business is unique in both itself and the support it requires. This is especially true for our wonderful sports specialist tour operators that come in a great variety, and all utilise the PTS support system in equally various ways to grow and support their business.  

It is because of the different needs that come with each business that our team of experts at PTS strive to provide not just a support system, but a foundation. Whether your business is deeply passionate about golf holidays in Scotland, cycling around the world, skiing down the best slopes the world has to offer, or simply taking excited sports fans on great adventures, the PTS foundation is designed to give you all the tools you may need to grow your business without restricting that business.  

The sports specialist members of PTS have complete freedom to run their business exactly how they want to without PTS constricting them. They are ensured to be 100% Package Travel Regulations compliant, retain most of their profits with low fees, and have access to game-changing services at competitive prices.  

Whether you’re taking keen football fans to Spain and need reliable currency hedging to back you up, or you want to explore the world by bicycle and need a stress-free application for ATOL, PTS ensure you have everything you need to flourish.  

Understanding the needs of our members without forcing you to make sacrifices means our travel experts are always improving how we support your business and is why we work with associations such as IAGTO so that we can keep up with the ever-changing landscape of travel and how that affects our sports specialist members. 

At the core of PTS’s support, we ensure that your clients can trust in the fabulous experiences your sports specialist business provides. With a travel trust account that protects both your monies and their monies efficiently and transparently, being a PTS member doesn’t just mean your business gets some of the best support in the UK travel industry, but so do your consumers.  

Our trust account system works with independent trustees who control what monies are released so no one with interest in those monies has direct access. This means that your consumer can go skiing without worrying about where their monies are, and if at any point they want to confirm, our team reconcile daily so they can find out exactly where their money is down to the penny. Integrated without software, this system is also efficient and easy to use for all our members and ensures that if your consumers need a partial or full refund for any reason, you’re not paying out of pocket.   

As a tour operator, we also ensure that you can keep track of your trusted suppliers with ease. Whether you want to take advantage of the PTS partners that are already in the system or use your own trusted suppliers and add them to the system for your team to use, knowing exactly who is involved with what booking is easy to keep organised.  

We provide one-stop software, competitive rates on currency hedging and merchant services, our Franchise ATOL, and a database of supplier partners that we trust so all the tricky tasks your business may face can be as simple and stress-free as possible and you can focus on the holidays that you’re passionate about. With easy integration and expert help with ATOL applications, familiarising yourself with the system, and beyond you can continue selling fantastic holidays without a difficult adaptation period.
