Yes you read that correctly. I have opened my own travel agency. I realized that I could do what I was doing for the other agency but on my own terms. I contacted Disney and talked to some one from inside sales. She told me that I had been given incorrect information and that I could indeed become my own agent for Disney - and other places. After all how did the other agencies get their start?
So I contacted the State of California and they walked me through what to do to be legal in the state. I had to have a travel agent number so the inside person at Disney told me who to go to for home based because I don't make enough yet to qualify for IATA or CLIA (the big two in the travel world.) I am a member of OSSN and have a TRUE number. So I guess I am open for business. Still have to go get fingerprints tomrrow.
So I am now in business for myself. I own my own travel agency!!!!!!
Destinations by Cathy is open for business.
