Gaining an International Air Transport Association (IATA) travel agent card, although not required, is the key to industry recognition when operating a travel agency. The IATA card gives travel agents access to travel discounts such as hotel, and car rental discounts. IATA travel agent cards are recognized by many travel providers across the world. Clients may take into consideration that a travel agency has a travel agent with IATA certification.
How to Get an IATA Card & Number?
You can get your IATA Card & Number through Cruise Planners. All of our travel agents are eligible to get an IATA card as long as they meet a minimum dollar amount of commissions during a one year period within the year they apply.
