Devising the picture-perfect vacation for most travelers can be time-consuming and daunting. I recently obtained my Verified Travel Advisor certification from the American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA).

In our industry, competition is fierce. But when stamped with the ASTA VTA badge, the travel industry and potential clients are granted the reassurance that their professionalism and industry knowledge is at the highest standard.

The American Society of Travel Advisors is the leading global advocate for travel advisors, the travel industry, and the traveling public. ASTA's certification programs provide a higher level of verifiable professional knowledge to the advanced seller of travel. Completion of the Verified Travel Advisor Program proves to the traveler, and the industry, that the advisor has the highest level of proficiency and dedication to their business. Only ASTA members subscribe to a 12-point Code of Ethics, the core of which is the concept of "Integrity in Travel." Put simply, this is the pledge our members stake their reputations on.

The intense nine-course curriculum allows twelve months of completion consisting of training manuals, online videos, and exams. Once completed, the travel advisor is awarded the distinguishing mark of being an ASTA Verified Travel Advisor.

I have passed ASTA's rigorous standard and have been awarded the badge of being an ASTA Verified Travel Advisor. Stamped with the VTA badge, I have achieved the highest level of integrity by our industry standards.

I'm here for all your travel needs!
