For Consumers

What does it mean when I see the Serenity trusts logo on a travel company’s website or brochure?

The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 and the Civil Aviation (Air Travel Organiser’s Regulations) 2012 require travel companies to provide security for the monies that consumers pay for certain types and combinations of travel arrangements booked with them and for consumers’ repatriation in the event of their insolvency.

If the holiday company with whom you have booked displays a Serenity travel trusts logo, that means it is using one of our trust accounts to provide the means to provide this financial protection.

All money that you pay to that company for travel arrangements which require financial protection must be paid into a separate and designated bank account over which Serenity are appointed as trustee. This means that our trust account handlers must authorise any payments out of the account and your holiday company can not access the funds until we say they can.

As a further layer of protection, all our trust funds are insured against trustee fraud.

Verify your holiday company
