Why your money is safe with Holiday Voucher Shop

Posted by on 28th December 2021

There have been plenty of stories in the press in recent years about high street businesses that have run into trouble, with the likes of Debenhams, Dorothy Perkins, Mothercare and Kath Kidston amongst the brands to run into issues.

At the time, one of the problems some people faced was being able to spend vouchers that they held for the affected businesses, which suddenly became obsolete as the businesses reverted to only dealing in payments made via cash or bank card.

That led to a situation where some experts went so far as to tell people that they shouldn’t buy vouchers for people as gifts, in part because of the risk of losing money in the event that a company goes bust.

Just because there were issues on the high street doesn’t meant there will be issues everywhere, and when it comes to vouchers purchased from Holiday Voucher Shop, you don’t need to be concerned about the money that you have put towards a purchase.

That’s because of the fact that Holiday Voucher Shop is part of the Online Travel Group, which is an accredited body member of Hays Travel Limited and operates under ABTA number P6692.

What that means is that we have to operate in line with the ABTA Code of Conduct and are obliged to not only provide a high standard of service to our customers, but must also ensure that there is financial protection in place for any worst case scenario that may develop.

We also operate under ATOL number 5534, which adds an extra level of protection for customers who are putting their vouchers towards flight-based packages.

That means you make your purchase with confidence that not only are you dealing with a reputable company that will provide the expert assistance needed to get the most from your voucher, you are also dealing with a company that is putting the customer first by making sure that that protection is in place.

In short, the only thing you need to worry about once you’ve been gifted a voucher is where you’re going to go.
