Thank you for your interest in becoming an AITO Specialist Travel Agent.
It’s a very simple application process to join as all you need to do is complete the form below and send it back to us.
As an independent Travel Agent, you’ll pride yourself on delivering exceptional quality holidays and service to your clients and those holidays won’t necessarily be ‘off the peg’. They’ll be crafted and meticulously planned. The AITO Tour Operator members pride themselves on delivering exactly the same high standard of service and bringing the two elements together has resulted in the highly successful The Specialist Travel Association which we call AITO.
The Association, is administered by a Head Office and there is also a Panel of Travel Agents and Tour Operators who work together, as a catalyst for bringing together like minded companies to further business for the benefit of both parties.
Many AITO Operators have unique products, and all members offer the highest standards of holiday planning and service to Travel Agents. We bring Agents and Operators together in a series of events ranging from conferences and training opportunities to social events and educational trips.
All our events have camaraderie and the spirit of AITO running through them and that spirit is partnership. We have the Closer Ties agreement which is an agreement between the Operators and Agents covering commission and sales policy to ensure a level playing field and our AITO All Stars league which measures sales performance from Agents for AITO Operators.
In the membership year, our top AITO All Stars sellers are recognised in a glittering award ceremony each January and can earn credits to be redeemed against AITO events. Running alongside the All Stars is the AITO Excellence scheme where AITO Agents can have their commitment to and their engagement with the association recognised by achieving Silver, Gold and Platinum recognition. KickStart will be held on 6-7 January 2024.
Travel Agent members are featured in the AITO Guide as well as listing on the main AITO.com website. This alone has generated quality business for our members from the find an Agent section.
We want AITO Specialist Travel Agents to be at the centre of working together with AITO Tour Operators to create the very best holiday experiences for clients and to maximise on the revenue earning opportunities that come from that partnership. We encourage all Agents to get fully involved at every opportunity. Some events and services are FREE as they are included in your membership fee and others have competitive attendance charges.
The cost of annual membership which runs each year from 1st September – 31st August is just £519 + vat for a single branch.
Please contact Yvonne at AITO on 0208 744 9280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for multiple branches.
We look forward to having you join us!
