Australia: holiday makers warned on using unlicensed travel agents

The Australian Travel Compensation Fund says booking with a licensed agent is “more important than ever’”as more businesses struggle in the tough economic climate.

The TCF was set up in 1986 to provide a safety net for travellers who would lose money if a travel agency collapsed or became insolvent.Source:; find article here>>.
