In addition, professional travel consultants often become members of the National Association of Career Travel Agents (NACTA) and/or, the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA).

This benefits you, the traveler, because they have access to the most up-to-date travel information and stay informed about travel trends. They are “in the know” about the latest hotel openings, hot places to shop, and restaurants to experience. They work hard to stay current by attending educational seminars, networking with their counterparts in the travel industry, and traveling to destinations so they have the information they need to put together your ultimate travel experience.
