The times of cheap overseas travel is nearing its end.
Several cheap overseas travel companies have collapsed, as well cheap and cheerful airlines like XL Travel, Zoom and now Goldtrail Travel.
With all this in view there are certain precautions you can take.
It is imperative to purchase travel insurance for overseas travel. However, many polices specifically exclude the risk of the tour operator or carrier going bust.
Should you be booking your holiday or flights from a travel agent, ensure that you check they are covered by the Air Travel Organisers' Licensing (ATOL) insurance bond scheme.
Should the worst happen , you are able to get your money reimbursed.
Should you buy your flights direct from the airline, make sure you use a credit card to buy the tickets. Should the travel company go bust, you will then be able to reclaim the cost of tour tickets from your credit card compan.
Should you be booking your flight or holiday with a no frills airlines which does not accept credit cards or makes extra charges for credit card bookings think very carefully prior to making your decisions. You may well be getting a cheap price, however, you are taking a bigger risk.
