- Are these similar to travel agent bonds?
Yes. However, they are not the same. Travel agency bonds guarantee all of the agencies bookings, whereas ARC bonds are limited to airline bookings only. ARC bonds are required by the Airlines Reporting Corporation while travel agent bonds are required by various states. Therefore, depending on location, it is possible for a travel agency to be required to post both bond types.
- Is this related to the ARC Bond Farm Credit Program?
No. The Farm Credit Program is setup to help finance rural community projects and is not a surety bond, nor is it related to the Airlines Reporting Corporation.
- Can I get this bond without collateral?
Yes. We have specialty markets that most other agencies do not have access to. Fill out our ARC bond application and get a collateral free bond quote.
- Can anyone qualify for an ARC bond?
No. Surety bonds are not insurance and several high risk bond types such as ARC bonds do not have options for those with bad credit.
- Are ARC bonds considered a high risk bond?
Yes. Since they guarantee the transfer of funds their risk is higher than most other miscellaneous bonds. This makes them not only harder to qualify for, but makes their terms less appealing than other surety bonds.
