Is Magical Mouse Holidays an ATAS participant?
As of July 1, 2014 travel agents in Australia were no longer required to hold a state licence or be members of the Travel Compensation Fund (TCF). Prior to this date, Magical Mouse Holidays held a full NSW Travel Agent licence and were members of the TCF, which meant we were qualified to sell international travel products and our business had been assessed as solvent. When these requirements for travel agents were abolished, the AFTA Travel Agent Scheme (ATAS) was introduced, a voluntary industry accreditation program. Being a small business we have opted not to join this program due to the cost involved in becoming accredited.
