ACTA awards agent, traveller in contest

ACTA awards agent, traveller in contest

ACTA has announced the winners of its ‘Why I Use A Travel Agent’ contest, which collected more than 150 testimonials on the value of booking through an agent.

Marilyn Shalma of New Wave Travel in Toronto and her client who submitted the testimonial, Toronto resident Brian Nixon, were the winners in the WestJet-sponsored contest, each receiving a pair of air-only tickets anywhere WestJet flies.

The contest was launched on Travel Agent Day (May 6), in conjunction with ACTA’s new consumer-facing website ACTA encouraged its members to solicit their clients for testimonials to share why they use a travel agent, and the value that their travel agent provides them when planning travel.
