Learn more about the process.

We've got the only number you'll ever need.

Every ARC participating agency receives its very own ARC number. An agency's commission earnings and independence are directly tied to this widely respected identifier. An ARC number means the ability to work directly with suppliers... meaning no more split commissions.

Travel Agency Participation

Your agency is one-of-a-kind. That's why we offer a participation program to fit the individual needs of agencies of every size and type. Which best describes your agency?

Would you like to issue airline tickets directly?

ARC Accredited Agency Program
ARC Accredited Agency participants have the authority to directly issue tickets through a GDS. ARC Accredited Agencies have access to ARC's first-class financial settlement services, as well as to numerous travel agency tools.

Do you specialize in leisure travel?

Verified Travel Consultant (VTC) Program
The Verified Travel Consultant (VTC) program is tailored to the growing number of agencies that do not issue tickets directly through a GDS. These agencies have access to all the benefits of ARC participation.

I work in my company's corporate travel department.

Corporate Travel Department (CTD) Program
The Corporate Travel Department (CTD) program provides companies with direct access to ARC's central reporting and settlement processing systems. CTDs receive all the benefits of ARC accreditation, including an individual ARC number.
