Who We Are

ASTA (American Society of Travel Agents) is the world's largest association of travel professionals. Our members include travel agents and the companies whose products they sell such as tours, cruises, hotels, car rentals, etc. We are the leading advocate for travel agents, the travel industry and the traveling public.

Travelers depend on travel agencies and others affiliated with ASTA to guide them honestly and competently.  All ASTA members pledge to conduct their business activities in a manner that promotes the ideal of integrity in travel and agree to act in accordance with the applicable sections of the following Principles of the ASTA Code of Ethics.

ASTA offers many benefits to its members and the traveling public. The majority of ASTA's members are travel agencies.

We also have membership categories for students, travel schools, retail travel sellers, and others. ASTA is the organization for anyone related to the travel industry!
