You can only make deposits through a personal bank account only if you trust a tour operator or agency otherwise, you may land in hands of a fraudster or a non-existent company.

The fact that travel agencies and tour operators need to be first registered and incorporated before getting a company bank account is enough to clarify that the agency is genuine and may be the right company to deal with.

The most convenient and trusted way of making payments for your safari to travel agencies in Uganda is through direct wire transfer (EFT – Electronic Funds Transfer) to the company’s account.

These platforms only deal with registered travel agencies and tour operators in Uganda and usually ask for company registration documents before rendering online payment solutions to respective companies hence they are so worthy of trusting.
