The TCRC Board voted for a $10.00 per location assessment for renewal year July 1, 2014 – June 30, 2015.  The law requires a late fee of $5 per day, to a maximum of $500, for failure to pay your assessment by the TCRC Renewal Due Date.  Your TCRC Renewal Due Date by law is 30 days before your Seller of Travel (SOT) Registration Renewal Date.

ATTENTION: IF YOUR TCRC RENEWAL DATE FALLS BETWEEN JULY 1, 2012 AND JUNE 30, 2014, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:  Please use the online renewal function.  Be sure to include any required changes and check the declaration box. Then go to the “pay by check” function and put zero (0) for the check number on the payment step.  Once you have submitted the renewal, we will report to SOT that you are current with TCRC.  The TCRC Board voted for a zero assessment for renewal year July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013 and again for renewal year July 1, 2013 - June 30, 2014.  On-line renewal is still required, but you need not make a payment.

Welcome to the TCRC

In 1995, the California legislature enacted the Seller of Travel Law, creating the Travel Consumer Restitution Fund for the benefit of consumers located in California who suffer losses as a result of the bankruptcy, cessation of operations, insolvency, or material failure of a seller of travel to provide the transportation or travel services contracted for.

The Travel Consumer Restitution Corporation (TCRC) was created to decide claims made against the restitution fund. The TCRC is a Private Corporation governed by the Seller of Travel Law. It is not a government agency or an insurance company. It is not associated with or controlled by any seller of travel, and it does not represent any seller of travel.
