Their goal is to do good business, and help agents do good business in return; meaning that, not only do they provide some of the best discounts in the travel industry, the complete process of booking through CTS is transparent: mark-ups, net rates, and commission levels are all visible…even through the booking engine.

CTS allows the agent to send itineraries to their customers with their branding, such as the logo of their agency. The booking engine is even mobile friendly, for complete convenience.
