NTA Helps Tour Operator Sales with New Credit Options
August 14, 2006 – NTA wants to help tour operators sell clients the trip of their dreams. NTA has teamed with GE Money to offer tour operators a very exciting new product – promotional credit. This product allows tour operators the opportunity to offer their consumers deferred interest credit options.

As part of a one-year pilot, GE is seeking five to seven operators who would like to test this product with their consumers. This type of credit product is already fairly commonplace in other retail markets, like furniture and large appliances; however, it is very new to travel. After a year of testing, GE and NTA will look at the success of the product, which would determine the viability of a longer-term program.
