Member Testimonials

"The Canadian traveler is an important part of tourism in Mexico, as well as the makeup of our member base.  Anything we can do to assure them we abide by the highest ethical standards and give them the confidence to become part of El Cid is welcomed.  CRTA gives us that and more.  And to be able to support a group that lends clarity and credibility to our industry is an honor.  For us, it is essential to support them the same as our associations in Mexico (AMDETUR) and the USA (ARDA).

"There are enormous benefits related to becoming a CRTA member. Such as direct contact with the decision-makers of many resorts, an industry-recognized code of ethics, the ability to conduct business in Canada as a trusted company and creating positive awareness for VOA. Though all of those reasons to join CRTA would ultimately justify becoming a member, the most important reason for VOA to join CRTA was the person representing CRTA, Mr. Gaetan Babin. VOA is a proud member of CRTA, and VOA looks forward to attending GNEX Toronto in September 2022! Thank you, Gaetan Babin; you make a significant difference in the Vacation Ownership Industry!"
