Personal Service and First Hand Knowledge

Outahere.com will always be synonymous with personal service, unique programs, exclusive places, and special people.  However, look to us for our ecotourism and adventure expertise.

First hand experience is important when booking trips to out of the way places, and you should call Diana (see bio below) for suggestions and help with those arrangements.

Know the Travel Agency Before You Do Business
Outahere.com makes consumer protection a priority. Outahere.com is 1) a member of the Travel Consumer Restitution Corporation, 2) holds your travel funds in a trust account until paid to the vendors, and 3) is registered with the California Attorney General.  Outahere.com wants their clients to be well protected.

The Travel Consumer Restitution Corporation (TCRC) refunds travel cost to consumers from California when a business does not provide travel services due to business closure, bankruptcy, or default. Outahere.com is a participant in the Travel Consumer Restitution Corporation.  Not all travel agents participate in this fund.

You, the passenger, may request reimbursement from TCRC if you are owed a refund of more than $50 for transportation or travel services which was not refunded in a timely manner by a seller of travel who was registered and participating in the TCRC at the time of sale. The maximum amount which may be paid by the TCRC to any one passenger is the total amount paid on behalf of the passenger to the seller of travel, not to exceed $15,000.

A claim must be submitted to the TCRC within six months after the scheduled completion date of travel.  A claim must include sufficient information and documentation to prove your claim and a $35 processing fee.  You must agree to waive your right to other civil remedies against a registered participating seller of travel for matters arising out of a sale for which you file a claim with the TCRC, if you were located in California at the time of sale.

You may request a claim form by writing to:  Travel Consumer Restitution Corporation, PO Box 6001, Larkspur, CA 94977-6001; or by faxing a request to: (415) 927-7698.

California law requires certain sellers of travel to have a trust account or bond. Outahere.com has a business client trust account. 

Outahere.com is an associate of Travel Professionals International and is registered with the California Attorney General as a seller of travel. Our registration number is:

CST 2063964-40

Registration as a seller of travel does not constitute approval by the State of California.
