Technology and the Internet may have made traveling much easier, but holidaymakers still prefer the face-to-face advice of a professional travel operator when planning their future vacation, according to the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA).
The American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) expressed its concern on Tuesday that vague, generalized worldwide travel warnings that offer no country-specific details can be confusing to travelers and risk discouraging travel across the board.
The U.S. government hopes to prop up suffering airlines at the expense of another profession - travel agents. The Department of Transportation says it is considering outlawing "incentive fees" that computer-reservation systems pay to encourage agents to use their networks.
In response to the recent U.S. national disaster and the nation's clear need for enhanced airline security measures, the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) has sent a letter to its congress outlining its suggestions for keeping America's skies safe.
