Travel agents will have the chance to earn bonus commissions and exclusive savings in September during the United States Tour Operators Association's (USTOA) annual Travel Together Month.

USTOA members, such as Collette and Avanti, will offer incentives to travel agents making bookings during the month. From complimentary add-ons and free airfare to savings, the incentives are a way of “saying thank you to our valued travel agent community,” Terry Dale, president and CEO of USTOA, said.
