USTOA Debuts New Search Option for Travel Agents and Travelers
Finding the right vacation can be one of the most difficult parts of planning a journey, but the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) is looking to simplify the process with a new search tool on the company’s website.
According to a press release from USTOA, the company’s website now hosts the “Find Your Dream Vacation” search option. With the new application, travel agents and travelers will be able to, “research multi-day itineraries and tour packages from its active tour operator member brands.”
USTOA.com has teamed with online travel developer Tripwing to take the hassle out of digging through many different sites to find the same information that is now in a neat and orderly search function. When asked about the upgrades to USTOA.com, president and CEO Terry Dale released a comment via the press release:
“Strengthening search capability is another major step in the evolution of the USTOA website and the association’s mission to educate the public and our travel agent partners. By tapping Tripwing’s expertise and technology platforms, USTOA now offers a one-stop-shop for searching a multitude of trip options from a diversity of operators.”
What makes this change so great for travelers is the ease of use. The search page will allow travelers to filter through all applicable tour operator itineraries by destination, activities and vacation type, but it also allows for even more specific filters like price, trip duration, and dates.
Another major benefit for travel agents who use for Tripwing’s “Itinerary Builder” program will be the full access USTOA database. This unprecedented access will help agents build the perfect trip proposals for their clients.
The ease of use and quick access to key information from the “Find Your Dream Vacation” search option will be a huge help for travel agents and travelers alike.
