FTA Travel Advisor Membership

Travel Advisor members shall be business entities or independent agents/advisors involved in selling family travel. These business entities function as travel agencies, travel advisors, and/or their wholly-owned travel agency or travel advisor subsidiaries.

Our goal is to better equip advisors to reach more families and inspire them to travel to more places more often, showing them that their dream adventures are possible. By providing a platform for networking and professional development, we strive to broaden the expertise and amplify the perspective of all our advisor members. How do we do that? We educate. We connect. We promote. We advocate.
