NEW YORK – December 22, 2015 – Effective December 22, 2015, Ambassadors Group, Inc., the parent company of People to People Ambassador Programs, will resign its membership in USTOA and as a result will no longer participate in the USTOA $1 Million Travelers Assistance Program.
Ambassadors Group Inc. has resigned its membership due to the company’s decision to cease operations and close its student and adult travel business by the end of 2015.
USTOA President and CEO, Terry Dale, understands how hard this business decision was for Ambassadors Group, Inc. and values the tremendous support the company provided to USTOA for more than 15 years.
Representing more than $13.5 billion in revenue, the member companies of U.S. Tour Operators Association provide tours, packages and custom arrangements that allow nearly 8 million travelers annually unparalleled access, insider knowledge, peace-of-mind, value and freedom to enjoy destinations and experiences across the entire globe. Each member company has met the travel industry’s highest standards, including participation in the USTOA’s Travelers Assistance Program, which protects consumer payments up to $1 million if the company goes out of business.
As a voice for the tour operator industry for more than 40 years, USTOA also provides education and assistance for consumers and travel agents.
