FTA – Travel Advisor Initiative

The vision of the FTA is simple: To inspire more families to travel.

To that end, the goal of our travel advisor initiative is to better equip advisors like you to reach more families and inspire them to travel – more often, to more places, trying more travel options and adventures than they ever thought possible.

The FTA aims to strengthen relationships between advisors, consumers, and the travel industry. By providing a platform for networking and professional development, the FTA strives to broaden the expertise and amplify the perspective of all our advisor members.
