FTA – Travel Agent Initiative

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

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

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