CLIA Opens Agency Enrolment for 2019


Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has opened enrolment for its 2019 Travel Agency Membership and Individual Agent Membership (IAM) programs.

CLIA membership elevates the credibility and reputation of agencies and their individual agents within the travel industry and is built to help members navigate the cruise industry, attract more clients and increase their earnings.

CLIA membership also establishes agents as a cruise travel authority in the eyes of consumers and provides instant industry recognition with booking credentials (agency) and the CLIA EMBARC ID (agents). It also affords access to professional development, cruise line bonus commissions, cruise line trainings and webinars, as well as exclusive personal travel perks and discounts.

“It is a privilege for our team to present CLIA’s 2019 Travel Agency Membership and Individual Agent Membership to the travel agent community in North America,” said Charles A.B. Sylvia, vice-president, Membership and Trade Relations. “We have listened to you, learned from you, and designed member benefits to serve you both personally as well as professionally.”

Travel agencies interested in joining can apply for a Travel Agency Membership. Individual Agent Membership is open to travel agents associated with a 2019 CLIA Travel Agency Member.

Members get listed on CLIA’s online Agent Finder to promote agencies to consumers looking for knowledgeable and reliable cruise-focused travel professionals. Individual Agent Membership includes a complimentary listing beneath the agency’s listing.
