TICO approves Fund claims against Gideon Travel & Tours

MISSISSAUGA — TICO’s Board of Directors has approved four claims made against Gideon Travel & Tours Ltd.

Approved on May 25, the claims protect five consumers against the company for a total amount of $2,250. The consumers did not receive the travel services for they paid.

Gideon Travel & Tours’ registration was terminated on Oct. 5, 2020.

The Ontario Travel Industry Compensation Fund is wholly financed by the industry to protect consumers who do not receive the travel services for which they paid, due to the insolvency or bankruptcy of an Ontario-registered travel agency or travel wholesaler, or due to the cessation of an end supplier airline or cruise line. The Fund only covers consumers who have booked through an Ontario-registered travel agent, and is administered by TICO.
