ASTA Calls for a Change to Advisor Commission Payment Timing

In a letter from ASTA senior vice president and general counsel, Peter N. Lobasso, ASTA said that “...full economic recovery of the travel agency industry will almost certainly lag the recovery of the travel industry as a whole by months” because of the standard commission payment schedule.

travelmarketreport.com In a letter on Thursday, ASTA also called for a change to commission recall standards.

Travel advisers: A secret weapon during Covid-19

Travelers need your services now more than ever. We know it. You know it. And we're working hard to make sure the rest of the world knows it, too. #WeAreHereForYou 💪

"Advisors also report that these new clients, in an uncertain travel environment, are looking to them to protect their payments on future trips if they need to be canceled or postponed and be their advocate when negotiating for refunds."

cnn.com For reassurance and to find the best options in the confusing times of the Covid-19 pandemic, some travelers are turning -- for the first time -- to travel agents.

ASTA has over 50 chapters that allow members to connect with other ASTA members on a local level. Now, more than ever, it is important to surround yourself with a community that understands. In this time of physical distancing, many chapters are holding virtual chapter meetings.
Join a local chapter today at asta.org/ASTAChapters!
