Seller of Travel

Do Hollywood tours count as travel? Well, technically yes since you’ll be travelling on our tour buses. But specifically when talking about travel in Los Angeles (or California in general) those people who sell travel packages need to be registered by the state. We duplicate here the text from the office of the Attorney General of California.

Registering online as seller of travel in California

California requires all sellers of travel to register with the Attorney General’s Office and to display the registration number on all advertising. While not assuring that a company is reputable, a valid registration signals that the seller of travel has at least followed the law to be registered.

When you’re at a travel agency, ask to see the seller of travel’s registration acknowledgement — a one-page document issued by the Attorney General’s Seller of Travel Program. Be sure to check the expiration date to determine whether the registration is still valid.

You also may use the “Seller Search” feature on this website to assist you in determining whether a seller of travel is registered with our office. Since there are many similar seller of travel names, please spell out the full name and address of the company.
