Become A PTS Cruise Travel Agent
At PTS, we are a team of experienced travel experts that understand the intricate requirements that cruise travel agents need to navigate. As a PTS member, you will have access to our secure trust account, complete PTR compliance, and the freedom to run your business.
Freedom to run your own business & choose suppliers
All the tools you need to run a successful cruise travel business through a trust account, with friendly online software
Enhance Your Profits
Many solutions in the UK ask large monthly fees, take big profit cuts, and stop members from working freely with any suppliers. We recognise that travel businesses need freedom to build their business, create lasting relationships, and sell great sporting services.
Travel Supplier Database
However you choose to run your business, PTS will provide a sturdy foundation. With a large supply of our own contracted cruise suppliers to choose from, or the freedom to add your own cruise suppliers to our system, you can sell the holidays you want with suppliers you trust.
One-stop Software System
We believe in making everything as accessible as possible, with just one system for all your needs. From the ability to manage client relationships, to managing and paying suppliers, we can provide all the tools you need to run your business.

For us UK Rail Breaks as a new to market Tour Operator, the PTS model works really well for us. It allows us to provide our customers with Financial Protection and also enables us to manage our business the way we decide.
David Glover, UK Rail Breaks, Tour Operator
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.

Features such as the online portal, allow our customers to login and manage their booking as well as make payments and contact us directly. Apex Expeditions would recommend PTS to any new tour operators joining the travel industry.

Purple Dog Company entered the sports and adventure travel market in 2019. Our mission was to establish a travel business that offered bespoke sports holiday travel backed up with a compliant and transparent working platform that offers world-class sporting and adventure experiences for our customers, complete with a trusted platform of financial protection. Protected Trust Services supported our vision by offering merchant services, financial protection through its trust account, a software package to support all this, whilst guiding us through the critical ATOL certification application needed to ensure our offerings were in line with our legal obligations. What we didn’t expect was the support and assistance whenever we felt there was a complex scenario for booking. Always on hand to offer support, PTS have fast become our partner of choice.

We were very new to travel when we joined PTS. They provided unrivalled support but allowed us to build our supplier list without restriction. Throughout the COVID crisis the team at PTS have been on hand for any help and assistance. We are so pleased we joined PTS.
