When travelling to Ghana it is important to book with a local tour company that has the legally required insurance policies and operating licences as your international travel insurance will be invalid if they haven’t. Ghana is an emerging economy and the resources are not available to check and identify the many bogus travel companies that have developed websites and operate illegally here. The cheapest option is not always the best option as there are reasons for companies offering cheaper packages and these are usually due to them not operating within the laws of the land. It is estimated over half of local tour operators here in Ghana do not have professional indemnity and public liability insurance, use vehicles that are not comprehensively insured, do not have a Ghana Tourism Authority operating license and as they are not registered do not pay taxes which ultimately has a negative effect on Ghana’s development.
Be rest assured when booking with Ashanti African Tours you are booking with a professional, legitimate company operating with all the necessary insurance policies, licenses and registrations.
