ASTA – American Society of Travel Advisors


As travel agents are routinely authorized to act on behalf of others, most notably, the traveling public and the myriad suppliers offering travel services; it goes without saying that agency is a subject of importance to everyone in the travel industry. Given the interdependence of the various players, all of whom have competing yet also complimentary interest, it follows that all agents, and particularly ASTA travel agents, should have a firm understanding of this subject in order to best serve their clients while also protecting their own interest.

This course includes a 35-page course handbook, instructional video and 25 question exam.
