One of the largest challenges a travel company can face is acquiring merchant facilities because merchant providers consider the travel industry to be high risk. However, by becoming a Protected Trust Services Member PTS will help you gain merchant facilities which will allow you to take credit and debit card payments both online and over the telephone. 99% of PTS members are successful and the PTS team will complete the application with you.

The PTS trust account is a trusted model for Package Travel Regulation compliance and consumer protection in travel. The PTS trust account is managed and run by independent trustees at an independent accountancy firm to ensure client’s monies and PTS members monies are 100% secure. All payments are reconciled and authorised by the back office PTS software package that all members have a license to use. The daily reconciliation will deplete each PTS members bookkeeping and annual accountancy fees whilst making payments simple and easy to manage.

The Protected Trust Service Software is offered to all PTS members for a nominal, affordable monthly fee. PTS members have estimated that our bespoke travel software solution saves their travel company approximately 40% of back-office costs. Client relationship management, quoting and invoicing, incoming and outgoing payment management and reconciliation, supplier management, itinerary and booking management are just some of the facilities within the PTS travel software solution.

Insurance options for new travel business start-ups can also be a minefield. Protected Trust Services can direct you to some partner insurance companies that offer extremely competitive policies.
