We are regularly confronted in the media with stories from people who have rented a holiday home online that did not exist, or from people who have rented a house from a travel agency that has gone bankrupt.
Booking via the websites of Azurselect offers you the assurance that the monies paid by you are guaranteed by the SGR, the Dutch Stichting Garantiefonds Reisgelden.
This applies to customers residing in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom.
The SGR guarantees your prepaid travel money. But this only applies if you book with a travel agency that is affiliated with the SGR!
Azurselect is registered with the SGR under the number 3614.
You can check this yourself via the website of the SGR, www.sgr.nl
To become a member of the SGR, a travel agent has to have their books checked every year, and they also have to provide a bank guarantee.
Only serious travel agencies and mediators will make this effort.
Booking with a SGR affiliated agent costs you nothing extra, so be sure that you only book through an organisation affiliated with the SGR, because only then you will have certainty about your prepaid money.
Bookings for customers from the United Kingdom are guaranteed by the SGR.
Are you living in the UK and want to know more about the the SGR Stichting Garantiefonds Reisgelden please check with the Civil Aviation Authority, Consumer Protection Group / ATOL
for the detailed terms and conditions of the guarantee.
