Why do you need to use a Travel Council of Ontario registered agency?
Whether in person, by telephone or over the Internet, always make sure you purchase your travel services from a TICO registered travel agency. You can always check to see if your travel agency is registered with TICO by going to www.tico.ca and use the Travel Agency Search feature. Booking your travel services from a TICO registered travel agency ensures you are protected by the consumer protection provisions under the Ontario Travel Industry Act, 2002 which includes an industry financed Travel Compensation Fund.
