What is a home based travel agent?
Click on the question for more information.

I have been told I need an IATA or ARC number to sell travel. Is this true and how do I get one?
ARC (Airlines Reporting Corporation) and IATA (International Air Transportation Association) are two organizations that control the flow of funds between suppliers, agencies and consumers. They issue numbers to qualified organizations which are then recognized by suppliers in order to issue tickets, sell products and earn commissions. You must meet certain requirements to obtain an ARC or IATA number. There are differing levels of participation, and there are other organizations which offer numbers, such as CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) and ARTA's TravelSellers program (Association of Retail Travel Agents) which will allow you to use the number to claim commissions. Again, you must meet the requirements of the issuing organization to obtain the number. The number "legitimizes" your business because the supplier knows you have met certain requirements. Signing up with a host agency allows use of their ARC and/or IATA (or other) numbers in exchange for a commission split.
