Q: How do I know when I'm booking a trip with a travel agent that the company is legitimate?

A: Ensure the company is a member of the Travel Industry Council of Ontario, an organization that regulates travel agencies and travel wholesalers in Ontario. An easy method to determine this status is by calling the travel agency in advance and inquiring with them or by checking their promotional material and advertisements for the TICO logo. For further inquiries, contact TICO at toll-free 1.888.451.TICO. or visit their web site at
