Benefits of Using an ASTA Travel Agent

Save Money! 

Strong working relationships with travel suppliers and the latest in computer reservation technology enable ASTA agents to access the most up-to-date information on how to get you the best value.

Traveler Advocates 
Your best interests are the priority.  ASTA has a long-standing record of fighting for consumer rights and ASTA travel agents are required to adhere to a stringent Code of Ethics.

Convenience
The ASTA membership includes over 18,000 travel agencies across the country, most of which offer one-stop shopping for all travel arrangements.

Service
ASTA travel agents are knowledgeable and active in the industry.  The Society provides education, training and resource materials to its members to equip them with the tools to offer the highest quality of service.
 

LI ASTA SUPPORTS:  
Responsible Tourism - Everyday!

A few suggestions for agencies that are looking to get involved: Plant a tree to offset carbon emissions, donate money to a reputable tourism cause, or organize a
clean-up at a local historic sight. Regardless of  the initiative, ASTA encourages all members to take action to ensure the success of Responsible Tourism.

LI ASTA supports the conservation efforts of  Chandra Gurung Conservation Trust and encourages its members to learn more and contribute at Chandra Gurung Trust.

To find out more about global warming and Carbon Credits we encourage members to visit websites of companies offering them such as CarbonFund.

VIDEO: Have You Used the New TravelSense.org?


One of the things we hear over and over is that members don't know the benefits and resources ASTA provides.
So each month, check this space for a very brief video produced and graciously shared by our friends at Southern California ASTA that shows you a "hidden jewel" on the asta.org website.
