Who We Are
The founding members of this association were previously all colleagues in the Operation department of a UK tour operator. Having gone their separate ways after company re-structuring they recognised that their shared experiences and values offered a great opportunity for future co-operation. The Association began as a way of linking various websites together. It has now become much more than just that.
The members soon realised that one of the main benefits of belonging to an association was the confidence that this gave prospective customers. Highly satisfied customers from one member often look for another member in their next holiday destination. The association is therefore instrumental in developing a growing list of 'returning' customers.
This aspect and the greater on-line presence of a single Association website means that members get the worldwide exposure that they deserve. This allows them to compete against much larger companies, bringing another level of choice to consumers.
The Association plays a key role in maintaining standards. It does so by accepting feedback from interested parties and responding to issues raised. The association also offers members peer support so that quality issues can be discussed and resolved before ever becoming an issue outside of the Association.
The association is open to new members who meet the Membership Criteria and who offer travel services in worldwide destinations or in a style that differ significantly from those of any of our current members.
