Hi, Thank you, ***** ***** you are selling vouchers, you are stilling acting as an agent (a sales agent) for the hotels. The other point is the fact that you are acting as a middle man and holding customer deposits, may mean that you have to register with the Financial Conduct Authority.
Having looked at the rules I would be almost certain you would have to obtain a licence to act as an online agent.
Can you tell me a bit more about how you will hold the customer deposits?
Hi, Thank you. The regulator here is ABTA. How long would you hold the deposits for? Also would you still refund the client if the hotel did not refund you?
Hi, Thank you. So the deposit is actually being paid for a refundable service. I do not think that would require FCA authoristion. Having described this, this is essentially a travel agency, you are managing third party bookings. I would recommend you register yourself with ABTA.
