Tramada awarded AFTA Allied membership

Travel technology company Tramada Systems has been recognised by the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) as an Allied Member.

The new status acknowledges Tramada’s long-time support of AFTA.

Jayson Westbury, Chief Executive of AFTA, praised Tramada for its role in driving the travel industry forward.

“AFTA’s success is built on the expertise and participation of its members, and we are very grateful to Tramada for working together with AFTA to promote our NTIA initiatives,” Westbury said.

“We are delighted to be recognised as an AFTA Allied Member,” Susan Enners, Country Manager, Australia and New Zealand of Tramada Systems said.

“Our status as an industry partner to this esteemed group of travel agents underscores our commitment to the ongoing development of travel agents generally and AFTA specifically as the peak body representing their interests.”

This recognition supplements Tramada’s position as a Preferred Mid-Office Partner in the AFTA Chargeback Scheme (ACS).

This scheme provides protection for AFTA Travel Accreditation Scheme (ATAS)-accredited agents against consumer debit and credit card chargebacks resulting from supplier insolvency.

From ACS’s introduction in 2017 Tramada partnered with AFTA to develop a customised standard report which was made available at no extra cost for all tramada® clients to help them identify the impact of supplier insolvency.

The report is easily produced and provides detail regarding clients impacted and their financial exposure.

Susan concluded, “Tramada has a long and proud association with AFTA and we are committed to continue to support the federation for years to come.”
