LEXINGTON, Ky. – November 2, 2004 – The National Tour Association has announced ACP International as a new partner in its Transportation Provider Program. ACP Rail International will offer exclusive benefits to NTA members including discounts and a dedicated 800 number for NTA tour operators. The agreement also will provide new profitable global business opportunities to association members.

"This partnership gives NTA tour operators new business opportunities with major rail systems in Europe," said NTA President Hank Phillips, CTP. "This represents an important door NTA has opened as a point of our ongoing globalization process. We very much appreciate ACP Rail’s efforts and support, and we look forward to a long relationship with this excellent company."

"ACP Rail International is delighted to be able to partner with NTA and its members," said Tim Roebuck, ACP’s vice president of U.S. sales and managing director of BritRail. We have a broad product range focusing on European railways which we hope will be of interest in helping NTA members to package and sell the European product,"
