Nevada: Seller of travel registration law repealed following six-year suspension

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed a bill  on June 10, 2015 repealing a law, that for decades, required all travel agencies doing business with Nevada consumers to register, maintain trust accounts and support a consumer recovery fund. Prior to the repeal, the Nevada legislature instituted three suspensions of the seller-of-travel law (NRS 598.305 - 598.395) for two-year periods beginning in 2009.

ABTA Launches Manifesto

Following on from ABTA’s ‘Travel Matters’ conference, the association has now launched its manifesto for the industry with its eye on the next election. Top of the agenda is ABTA’s push for a decrease in the airport duty tax to give a boost to the industry. There was no commitment from the party speakers on reducing the tax. ABTA is calling for expansion of airport capacity in the South-East. ABTA backs the reform of the Package Travel Regulations to take account of the rapid growth of internet trading. http://abta.com/news-and-views/policy-zone/more/abta-manifesto
