The CWT Associate program offers independently owned, local travel agencies like Athlone Travel the opportunity to partner with CWT. Acceptance into the program is based on local market position.

“As the travel industry has changed over the past several years, we have been looking for the right opportunity to become part of something bigger than ourselves, and CWT’s globally recognized brand is a great fit,” Smith said. “Our management team has been consistently impressed with the quality and professionalism of CWT’s people throughout this process and we’re excited to work closely together going forward.”
