Financial Protection

Your advantage when booking with us

Protect your money against fraud and insolvency

Booking a Polar Cruise is a big undertaking - both timewise, and financially. When making a booking, be sure that your contractual partner is ensured against insolvency, and that your money is in good hands.

Secured Payment Certificate with every booking

Sicherungsschein Secured Payment Certificate

As a German operator, we adhere to the strictest policies and all our customer bookings are fully protected against insolvency, both under EU and German law. This means: Even in the unlikely case that we should go bankrupt, your money will still be safe and ensured - at no extra cost.

After having received your deposit payment, you will receive an invoice, a packing list, further information for arrival, departure, as well as a detailed tour confirmation, and your Secured Payment Certificate ("Sicherungsschein"). This legal document is an insurance document for charter holidays pursuant to § 651 k of the German Civil Code. The insurance company issuing the certificate on behalf of Ventura TRAVEL ensures the person making the booking and all fellow-travellers that as a result of insolvency or opening of insolvency proceedings against Ventura TRAVEL assets, the following shall be reimbursed by the insurance company:

  1. The travelling price paid to the extent that the travel services do not take place
  2. Necessary expenditure incurred by the traveller for the return journey
