The Travel Assurance Fund (TAF) only covers the original amount paid for travel services that were not provided and does not cover travel insurance. Travel services that could still be provided by other travel service providers also are not covered (for instance, if an airline fails, hotel or car rentals purchased will not be covered). Claims must be received by our office within six months from the date the loss took place. Only travel services purchased from a BC licensed travel agent or wholesaler are eligible for compensation. ALL CLAIMS MUST PROVIDE SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION INCLUDING ITINERARY/RECEIPT FOR ORIGINAL TRAVEL SERVICES, PROOF OF PAYMENT, PROOF OF PAYMENT TO SUPPLIER BY TRAVEL AGENT AND RESPONSES FROM OTHER SOURCES OF COMPENSATION.
