With the return to international travel marred by ongoing flight rescheduling and airport queues, travellers need expert help. That’s where the professional travel agent comes in – but at a cost.
An ATAS accredited travel agent can plan your trip with ease and expertise. They have access to a huge range of products and destinations and are experts in destination Australia.
We are ATAS Accredited
ATAS, or the Australian Travel Agent Scheme, is an industry accreditation scheme operated by the AFTA (Australian Federation of Travel Agents). The ATAS symbol is your assurance that you are dealing with a credible and well trained professional business.
Whether you are planning your next family vacation, a honeymoon or an around-the-world adventure, an accredited travel agent can help. They are expertly equipped to make your holiday as seamless and worry-free as possible.
ATAS accredited agents can offer you access to a huge variety of products and destinations, the best suppliers and first-to-market offers. They are knowledgeable about local customs, and have the skills to make sure that your trip is a success, no matter what happens. If you’re interested in becoming a travel agent, consider studying a Vocational Education and Training (VET) course such as Certificate III in Travel or Diploma of Travel. These courses have prerequisite requirements, such as Year 10, and will equip you with practical skills for your career.
We are Licensed
Australia travel agents are licensed by the ATAS (Australian Federation of Travel Agents) to sell international and domestic flights, tours, accommodation, transfers, car rentals, and travel insurance. When you book with an ATAS accredited travel agency, you can be confident that you’re dealing with a highly professional and ethical business.
Travel agents are required to be members of the ATAS, and have complied with ATAS Codes of Ethics, which are designed to protect consumers. This includes a promise to provide you with the best possible service, advice and guidance.
All client payments are deposited into an Australian audited trust account and paid directly to contracted travel suppliers. As a further level of consumer protection, TravelManagers holds a travel agent fidelity insurance policy with Lockton Companies Australia Pty Ltd, an A- rated insurer. This means that in the event of a frustrated contract, either the client or the travel agent can claim on their insured fund.
We are Fully Insured
Australian Travel Agent is a fully insured travel agency. This means you can book your trip with peace of mind knowing that we abide by the Australian Consumer Law (ACL).
Your Aussie Specialist has experience planning and booking Australia tours, activities, accommodation, car hire and flights and is familiar with the country’s unique travel requirements. They’ve likely travelled there themselves and can offer you insider knowledge to ensure your trip is perfect.
You’re not legally obligated to purchase travel insurance for your vacation to Australia, but it is an important safety measure. Travel insurance reimburses you for the cost of cancelled trips or missed activities, and medical coverage protects you from expensive hospital bills in case of a serious accident or illness. Some plans include extra benefits, such as primary rental car insurance and luggage loss and damage coverage. Some policies also provide flexible cancellation terms, like a “cancel for any reason” (CFAR) option. Boost your policy with these add-ons to give yourself extra peace of mind.
We are Local
Australian Travel Agent is a locally owned and operated full service travel agency based in Athens. The company offers a complete range of international and domestic flight bookings as well as hotel and tour arrangements, car rental and travel insurance. The company also offers a variety of unique destination packages and specials.
As a local business, they can provide their customers with first-hand knowledge of the destinations and products that they are offering. This allows them to negotiate better rates with airlines, hotels and tour operators. Furthermore, they can offer their customers better advice on immigration documentation issues, which would not be possible with agents based overseas.
Australians visiting the United States tend to travel farther, stay longer and spend more than many other inbound markets. This pent-up demand is fueling strong interest in the United States from Australia. As such, the industry is expected to grow in the upcoming years. Australian Travel Agent
