Essential Travel - Site Security
Our online reservations system is secure and your credit card information will be encrypted.
The Essential Travel site has been fully tested to ensure all transactions are secure. We have processed many thousands of bookings without a single security issue.
In the unlikely event of your credit card being abused as a result of shopping through the Essential Travel Limited sites we guarantee to reimburse 100% of any losses you incur. We will reimburse the first £50 of your loss as, legally, the credit card issuer must repay the rest. However, in the unlikely event of an error occurring we will handle the whole process on your behalf.
We employ various security methods and best practices to ensure safe and satisfactory shopping. Our SSL certificates are issued by Thawte and are used throughout the booking process. Our infrastructure follows the guidelines set out in the PCI DSS standards and our online payments are processed by Barclays bank.
The purchase area of our site is secure; this means that we utilise industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of potentially sensitive information such as your name, address and other critically sensitive information like your credit card details. Information passed between your computer and our Web site cannot be read in the event it is intercepted by someone else.
