Why do you need a travel agency bond?

You are required to get a bond for your travel agency to protect your clients. If you do not forward your clients travel booking funds to the appropriate parties such as resorts, vehicle rental services or cruise lines, a claim can be filed on your bond.

If you're unsure whether you need a bond, you can select your state from the list below to view the bond requirements.

Frequent Questions

What is the process?

Apply on our website, get an instant online approval, sign the indemnity agreement, pay on our website and we will send the bond to you.

Does this bond protect my clients if I make an error on their booking?

No. It does not ensure the accuracy of the bookings. It only guarantees that money will be sent to the providers of travel services.

Can I get a seller of travel bond with bad credit?

Yes. Even if you have personal credit issues, you can get an instant quote online for your travel agency. However, you should expect to pay a higher rate than someone with good credit, as surety bonds are a form of credit to you, the principal.

Is this the same as an ARC bond?

No. Seller of travel bonds guarantees payment is transferred for all of the agencies bookings (also known as travel agency bonds). ARC bonds only guarantee payment transfers on airline bookings.

What if a false claim is filed on my bond?

You must contact the claims department of the surety company who wrote your bond.
