A travel consent letter is written by a third party (mostly lawyer) who makes a parent and the second party come to common grounds if the parent is letter his/her child go to a certain place with another person. In this letter it is clearly mentioned that during the time the child is away from his/her parent(s), they are solely the responsibility of the person in charge. This is why the letter states all duties which are to be passed on to the person taking care of the child during the time he/she is away.
Since it is an official document, a lot of signatures are required. The two parties coming to common ground and the third party making the deal happen are supposed to sign on the letter. Make sure that you maintain a formal and professional tone throughout the letter.
