gets TTA backing, a brand new travel and lifestyle website for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community launching 30 April 08, has received certification as a fully bonded travel agent by the Travel Trust Association (TTA) membership ensures that all consumers booking holidays through have total financial security via the TTA’s Travel Protection Plan.

The TTA operates by placing all monies received from a customer when booking their holiday in a trust fund.  Should any problems arise such as the agent failing to complete the booking, the customer will still get their holiday, or if that is not possible will receive a full refund.  This is in addition to company’s insurance, meaning all travellers booking with are doubly protected.


“Before launching, we wanted to ensure that all our customers are confident that they are booking with a reputable travel agent,” commented Richard Cruise, Founder and Managing Director of’s parent company, Reside International.  “TTA membership means that our customers are protected, and can be assured of having a worry free holiday.”
