Licenced and Bonded

With Travel Department you can rest assured that when booking your holiday, you can do so, safe in the knowledge that we are fully licensed and bonded.

Travel Department, with whom you make a contract when you book, is operated by Travel Department. We hold Tour Operators Licence Number T.O.163 and Travel Agent’s Licence Number 0692 issued by the Commission for Aviation Regulation and as a requirement have arranged an approved secured bond.

This means that when you book a holiday which includes a flight with us you can be entirely confident that in the unlikely event of our insolvency before or during your holiday, any money you have paid to us is fully secured, and if you are overseas, that full arrangements will be made to repatriate you at the end of your holiday.
