Travel Trust Association

As a member of the Travel Trust Association, we operate a trust account model which means that your money is held in a separate bank account managed by third party trustees. These funds are guaranteed by the Travel Trust Association and are also insured as an extra layer of protection. Furthermore, in the unlikely event of Richmond becoming insolvent, the Travel Trust Association will liaise with our suppliers to ensure that your holiday can still go ahead unaffected or provide you with a full refund of all payments made.
