SB 784 - This act establishes provisions regulating the sellers and promoters of travel packages. It contains protections designed to safeguard travelers by requiring certain travel and tour services to fully disclose background information on the promoter, the specific conditions of the travel arrangements, and a statement on the travelers' right to a refund if services are not provided in full.

Promoters and sellers of travel must provide evidence to the Attorney General that they are bonded or have a letter of credit before they can engage in the sell of travel. This act contains civil and criminal penalty provisions for those who violate its provisions. Those travel and tour services who have been engaged in business for at least three years prior to August 28, 1996 are exempt from these requirements. In addition, this act shall not apply to religious, educational or fraternal organizations whose primary purpose is not to promote travel.
