There’s a rumor going around that travel agents can get access to free or discounted travel. It’s true! While some of your favorite, comped travel experiences are offered only periodically by vendors, there are many standard discounts available to travel agents everywhere. Here are over 30 travel agent discounts our Centrav staff members have discovered and enjoyed in the past.
Please note, discount availability and requirements are subject to change. Please reconfirm the requirements of all TA rates prior to booking. If you are unsure whether a travel agent discount is still available, be sure to contact the vendor directly for more information!
