Your Travel Assurance Fund Contributions
The Travel Assurance Fund is a possible source of compensation for consumers if they didn’t get the travel services they bought. This can be due to the fault of a 3rd party (perhaps the airline went bankrupt) or a contributor to the fund (a licensed travel agent or wholesaler). It is a fund of last resort and to be eligible, consumers must have booked with a licensed BC agent or wholesaler.
All licensed travel agencies, wholesalers and accommodation providers must make payments to the Fund.
