Travel Agents Repeal Bills were introduced into parliament on 13 November 2013 (Victoria) and on 14 November 2013 (New South Wales). The other states and territories are in to process of repealing their Travel Agents Acts. The States and Territories are repealing their Travel Agents Acts following upon the Travel Industry Transition Plan which they approved on 7 December 2012. Under the plan, financial supervision provided by the Travel Compensation Fund will be removed mid-2013 and travel agents’ legislation repealed by mid-2014 – unless there are unforeseen delays.Source: eGlobal Travel Media; find article here>>.
