The Association of Canadian Travel Agencies (ACTA) is getting ready to celebrate Travel Agent Day on May 5 with a special contest on social media. 

“There has never been more reason to celebrate our fierce and resilient travel agents,” said Wendy Paradis. ”Travel agents have never faced so much adversity as in the past 14 months – yet they have worked tirelessly for their clients, have advocated for support over and over again, and are now looking forward to the return of travel later this year.”

This year the ACTA celebration starts on its own social media channels. 

Check in with ACTA on the morning of May 5th on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to learn about how ACTA is celebrating travel agents.

“Travel Agent Day is the perfect opportunity to have some fun and continue to spread the word on how important the service of a professional travel agent is when booking a trip,” said Paradis.

Great prizes to be won!

Four lucky Canadian travel agents will be randomly selected to win one of four prizes:

  1. 2 system wide, Air Canada economy class tickets
  2. One – four night prize to any Sandals/Beaches Resort
  3. One complimentary Independent Travel Agent Membership
  4. One complimentary enrollment into an ACTA's Certified Travel Counsellor (CTC) Course
