WHY JOIN THE CTA

Joining the CTA gives access to a range of EXCLUSIVE business benefits.

Coach tour operators have a place on the CTA’s own www.findacoachholiday.com website and invitations to a range of mostly free to attend events. These benefits easily outstrip the cost of membership. In addition members can also use the CTA logo in all their literature and on their website – having the CTA logo adds credibility and is an endorsement of the business and access to FREE legal, finance, marketing and PR advice.

Industry suppliers also have access to a range of EXCLUSIVE business benefits including free use of the CTA’s personalised membership list, a free listing on this new website as well as in the annual CTA Handbook and exclusive access to networking events such as the annual Coach Holiday Conference, CTA AGM event and CTA Summer BBQ. Plus exclusive opportunities for hotels to host CTA events and for Tourist Offices and attractions to host fam trips and facility visits.

Being part of the CTA underlines a commitment to supporting the coach tourism industry. For example hotels can sign up to the CTA’s Hotel Charter, a best practice initiative, while destinations and attractions can also be awarded Coach Friendly status, under another initiative being launched in 2016.
