What Makes a FantasTICO Travel Agent?

Today is Travel Agent Day and we are celebrating FantasTICO travel agents! A FantasTICO travel agent will take your trip from dramatic to DramaTICO, from exotic to ExoTICO, from romantic to RomanTICO, and will make everything FanTASTICO! Happy Travel Agent Day

FantasTICO Travel Agents are TICO Registered

All travel agencies in Ontario are regulated by TICO. Registered TICO agencies provide additional protection that may not be available when booking with agencies based in other countries or provinces. All Ontario registered travel agents are TICO certified by passing an Educations Standards Exam. This exam raises the bar in the industry and reinforces the value of using a travel agent. No matter how good your travel package looks, make sure your trip goes according to plan and book with a TICO certified travel agent.

FantasTICO Travel Agents Have Unique Knowledge

Ontario consumers have many options when it comes to booking travel, but Ontario offers powerful protections for those that book with a TICO registered travel agent.  Beyond that protection is the unique knowledge and advice that a travel agent can provide.  And should a traveller experience problems, they are not alone if they booked through a travel agent. FANTASTICO travel agents have:
  • Knowledge
  • Integrity
  • Professionalism
And will give you peace of mind. The Internet has made it even easier for consumers to book their own travel, but that can also lead to problems if you don’t have all of the information you need.  Ontario travel agents have valuable knowledge that can improve and protect your travel experience.

FantasTICO Travel Agents go Above and Beyond

Richard Smart, President and CEO of TICO maintains that, “TICO registered travel agents must provide comprehensive information to their clients that safe-guards their travel plans, but what really impresses me is the personal and professional commitment these agents have to their clients.  I hear stories every day of how agents go above and beyond to help and protect their clients.”
