As a matter of policy, we do not endorse any product, service or company whether or not the product, service or company appears at our Site or is in our seal program. We issue our seal to those travel service providers that pledge to follow TET’s Code of Rules and Standards (“TET Seal Holder”). We make no representation as to the performance or quality of the services provided by a TET Seal Holder but merely establishes rules and standards by which a TET Seal Holder is expected to carry on it’s relationship with the traveling public as a result of the TET Seal Holder’s pledge to adhere to the TET Code of Rules and Standards. If complaints are sent to us regarding a TET Seal Holder, we will contact the TET seal holder and request that it make contact with the complainant to fairly and equitably resolve the issue. If the complainant and the TET Seal Holder e-mail us advising that the complaint has been satisfactorily resolved, we will add this information to our database on the TET Seal Holder. A complaint against a travel service provider does not necessarily mean that the travel service provider doesn’t act in good faith nor provide excellent goods and services; it simply means that a party has decided to post to our database a complaint that they allege. Reporting generally covers up to a three-year reporting period, and is provided solely to assist you in exercising your own best judgment. Information contained in this report is believed reliable but not guaranteed as to accuracy. Reports are subject to change at any time.
You can verify that a company is a TET Seal Holder by clicking on the seal. If the seal is valid, you will be taken to our Site where you can see the information we maintain on the TET Seal Holder. If you know of someone who is using our seal or trademarks but you cannot verify that they are a TET seal holder, please contact us.
