what is arc and non arc agents? What does ARC do to help be a travel agent as opposed to not using it?
Asked by Shannon Hoffman on August 22, 2020 in General

ARC accreditation is for agencies that focus on selling air. We are a non-ARC agency as we focus on more lucrative products. As one of the top 2 hosts in America, we have found that being non-ARC allows us to focus in on "the good stuff" as we offer web-based tools that do all a GDS (the primary tool used by ARC agencies) does and more.
