Package Travel Regulations

The 1992 Package Travel Regulations (PTRs) are in place to protect consumer funds in the event of insolvency. PTS offers an independent trust account that allows a travel business to separate client funds and therefore meet the business’ legal requirements.

In line with Package Travel Regulations you are able to pay funds from trust to a supplier prior to the event taking place as long as the funds are insured. PTS offer all members Supplier Failure Insurance.

PTR’s give consumer confidence

It is a Legal requirement for consumer protection

The same legal requirements as in the EU

The 1992 Package Travel Regulations came into effect specifically to offer protection to consumers in light of Tour Operators and Travel Agents going into liquidation where no financial protection was in place.

The definition of the package means the pre-arranged combination of at least two of the following elements when sold or offered for sale, at an inclusive price. The service would either exceed twenty-four hours or include overnight accommodation. Transport, accommodation, other tourist services not ancillary to transport or accommodation and accounting to a significant proportion of the package. To find out more about The Package Travel Regulations please take a further read at our in-depth blog – The Definition of A Package 

In 2018 The New Package Travel Directive will be released by The Government. This will be an enhanced version but all details will not be released until January 2018 at the earliest. We would advise all travel companies to keep this legal update in mind and so call us to discuss if you wish to know more.

PTS offers its members full compliance with these Regulations in a simple and cost effective model.
