STO Garant’s guarantee scheme

STO Garant is a guarantee scheme that enables you to insure the revenue you receive from package travel. Our guarantee scheme operates via an online platform and is based on the escrow principle.

The escrow account system means that instead of paying an organisation directly, travellers pay money into an escrow (client fund) account. The amount paid is held in this account until the package trip has been completed. The booking payment is then automatically released to the organisation the day after the package trip ends.

Of course, every guarantee has its conditions. We'd like to be open about that in advance. Read the full guarantee scheme here.

A guarantee scheme without a guarantee fund

A guarantee scheme without a guarantee fund

STO Garant is not a mutual guarantee fund. This means that there are no overhead costs for fund management. There are also no annual costs for bank guarantees and audit certificates, as are required for participation in a guarantee fund. This means cost savings that may amount to thousands of euros per organisation, per year.

STO Garant is the simplest and most affordable guarantee scheme in the Netherlands:

  • Very low one-off admittance costs (€125.00);
