As part of national reforms to the regulation of travel agents, Australia's consumer protection agencies have launched the 'Pack some peace of mind' campaign.
A short 45 second video has been developed for you to watch.
National travel reforms affecting the licensing of travel agents commenced on 1 July 2014. Travel agents are no longer required to have a state licence or membership of the Travel Compensation Fund. In Tasmania, the repeal of the Travel Agents Act 1987 has begun however this process has not met the national commencement date. This has resulted in a technical non-compliance with the Act however this will not affect any business operating as a travel agent in Tasmania. New applications will not be accepted by this office.
