Package Travel Regulation compliance is a legal requirement in accordance with The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations of 1992.
We are a tour operator, not a travel agent, which means we are a principal and a package holiday organiser and we are required to comply with EU and UK regulations that are in place to protect you the consumer.
The EU Package Travel Directive was incorporated into UK law in 1992 and it defines the responsibilities of tourism operators in relation to 'package holidays' which they sell or promote. It was updated with draft proposals in 2015 for implementation in 2018.
Sara International Travel sells its holidays as packages, which means we sell a combination of at least two different components in the same holiday. Currently this will include two of the following;
a) a carriage of passengers - e.g flights and transport services like minibuses, trains, 4x4s
b) accommodation - e.g hotels, lodges, tents, etc.
c) car rental
d) any other tourist service which forms a significant proportion or essential feature of the package - e.g car hire, sight seeing, tours.
