The American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) and MAST Travel Network have announced that MAST will renew its agreement to pay a portion of ASTA membership dues for all MAST members and extend it to a two-year deal.

MAST, comprised of 210 agencies in the Midwestern U.S. and Canada, was the first consortium to sign such an agreement last June.

Under the two-tier structure with MAST, based in Oakbrook Terrace, IL, the consortium pays a portion of individual annual ASTA membership dues, reducing the total cost paid by the agency to $149 for agencies with annual sales volume of under $5 million, and $249 for those with annual sales volume above $5 million.
