What sets us apart?

In 2018, NACTA (National Association of Career Travel Agents) joined forces with ASTA independent advisors to build a stronger community. This new community was named the ASTA Small Business Network and welcomes independent advisors with a sales volume of less than $ 5million per year.

The ASTA Small Business Network (formerly NACTA), focuses on the development of the independent advisors by offering unique educational programs, events, and benefits designed just for you! ASTA is the leading global advocate for travel advisors (from small-mid sized and large travel agencies and their advisors), the travel industry and the traveling public. Our members represent 80 percent of all travel sold in the United States through the travel agency distribution channel.
