The Travel Compensation Fund (TCF) was established in 1986 to financially protect consumers who book travel
through a licensed Australian travel agent.
The TCF compensates consumers in the unlikely event that their travel agent collapses and fails to provide the travel
that has been paid for.
As part of licensing laws, all travel agents must be participants in the TCF. The Northern Territory is the only
Australian State/Territory that does not take part in the TCF.
The TCF ensures that when you book your travel through a licensed agent, your money is protected.
