The National Association of Career Travel Agents (NACTA) reports it entered into an expanded partnership with Travel Insured International (TII), a leading travel insurance provider, to offer errors and omissions (E&O) insurance.
“The NACTA aims to become a global organization bringing more professionalism, credibility and public recognition to the rapidly-growing independent travel agent sector,” said NACTA’s president, Ann van Leeuwen. “It’s through partnerships with leading travel companies like Travel Insured that our members continue to value their membership in NACTA.”
NACTA said it raised the membership criteria bar earlier this year by requiring its members to carry E&O insurance either as their own coverage or through their host agency. The move was part of a series of changes aimed at raising professional standards among NACTA members.
The new expanded partnership with Travel Insured gives NACTA members the opportunity to carry E&O insurance at significant savings whether through their host agency relationship or for those agents who want to remain fully independent sellers of travel, NACTA said.
TII has partnered with Liberty Mutual Group and Managed Insurance Services.
• A rated (excellent) rated Insurer – Liberty Surplus Insurance Company

NACTA also offers health insurance and an array of other benefits to member agents.
