The Good Travels Advisor program from Tourism Cares an online training program designed to bridge the gap in knowledge and support travel agents’ business.

Designed to be accessible for busy travel agents, the Good Travels Advisor (GTA) certification takes only about an hour to complete. The multi-media course, available for a $22 contribution to Tourism Cares, incorporates videos, quotes from agents and pictures.

The program doesn’t focus on specific products or suppliers, but rather provides tips and background information, like a guidebook for volunteer tourism. Some tips, for example, focus on how to be a good volunteer and how to find the right cause.

The final chapter of Good Travels focuses on using the information clients share to build business. By staying on top of the market trends, agents can become a trusted specialist, bringing in repeat clients and referrals.

After completing the course, agents will have access to the graduate center where they can find a downloadable handbook and handouts for clients. They will also be able to stay up to date with newsletters and webinars.
