The Travel Industry Council of Ontario (TICO) has launched a new digital Registrant Toolkit aimed to provide Ontario’s travel agents, agencies, websites and tour operators with shareable resources that "speak to the value of booking with a TICO-registered business." According to TICO, a recent survey of Ontario consumers found that 82 per cent of respondents think it’s important that the travel agency or website they are booking with is regulated.
“Enhancing consumer confidence will be a critical way for the travel industry recovery to move forward,” said TICO President and CEO Richard Smart. “The shareable resources in the Registrant Toolkit speak to the knowledge, professionalism, experience and support that come with booking with a TICO-registered business and the added peace-of-mind for consumers, especially during this recovery period.”
