The Travel Corporation Announces $300 Million USD Peace of Mind Promise

Clients can book with confidence with a R999 deposit and more flexible booking options

The Travel Corporation (TTC) and its 40 award-winning guided holiday brands have announced its $300 Million US Dollars “Peace of Mind Promise” to its loyal Travel Advisor community and their clients. As a family-owned and run business for the past 100 years, TTC acknowledges that part of its enduring success is to always conduct its business conservatively and today, the company is fully accredited in all the countries they do business in across the globe. As a privately-owned company, information around the financial status of the business is not released. However, these challenging times call for transparency and the reassurance of TTC’s current financial strength and integrity. The company has decided to share tangible financial information so that agents are fully aware that their clients’ monies and future travels are safe.

Within the group of TTC brands is the five-star Red Carnation Hotels (RCH was just named the 4th Top Hotel Brand in the World by Travel + Leisure magazine – July 2020) which owns 14 exceptional properties, situated in prime locations around the world including the highly anticipated opening of their Xigera Safari Lodge. RCH is audited by the international accountancy firm, Mazars, which confirms that the company has unencumbered fixed assets in excess of US$300,000,000 as of December 31st, 2019. TTC is sharing this solely to give clients the comfort in knowing that the organisation is highly solvent.

“As The Travel Corporation celebrates our 100th Year Anniversary, we continue to be a very stable and solvent company. Our “Peace of Mind Promise” gives the reassurance to our loyal Travel Advisors and their clients that their monies for future travel are safe and this goes beyond our commitment to having a memorable holiday with us,” said Brett Tollman, Chief Executive of The Travel Corporation. “The guest experience is always at the heart of TTC and we have further enhanced our well-being protocols and added our brand-new Well-being Director positions as we look forward to warmly welcoming back each and every guest on a future trip,” he concluded.

In direct response to clients’ needs for more flexible booking options in a post COVID-19 world, TTC has implemented a R999 deposit, which allows guests to secure the trip they want, risk free.  Coupled with their amended flexible booking terms, which allows for free changes up and until 30 days prior to travel, guests can book with complete confidence and ensure a seamless payment experience. If for any reason clients change their minds, they can choose new dates and/or a new destination without penalty on the land portion of their trips. The R999 deposit is valid for all 2021 bookings across Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold, Contiki and Costsaver made between 1 September and 31 December 2020.
