Department of Homeland Security Trusted Traveler Programs


The Department of Homeland Security has several Trusted Traveler Programs, which provide an improved passenger experience while enhancing security and increasing system-wide efficiencies. The programs are customized based on travel needs and many of them have reciprocal benefits.

“My husband got the Global Entry, I did not.  He winked at me as he slid by the 100 or so people in line at customs in Seattle (we were returning from a Vietnam/Cambodia River Cruise).  It was so slick and it’s only $15.00 more than the TSA Pre-check.  I have since  applied.  The application is not easy; the web site goes up and down, but it’s worth it even if you are only doing one international trip, because it works domestically as well. Happy Travels.”

-Cindy Bettine, CTC, owner of ABC Travel Time

Book Early: Get The Vacation You Want!

So you want to to take your family for a Disney vacation during Spring Break? Christmas in Hawaii? Or a ski trip with friends for New Years?  Ensure that you get the flights and resorts you want by making your plans well in advance, these are peak travel times.  

 According to ABC Travel Time’s office manager, Jeanne Lentz, CTC you should be narrowing down your vacation options for peak holiday periods a year in advance, and have your reservations confirmed a minimum of 9 months in advance.  During peak periods (even Spring Break) you’ll find the closer to the holiday, the higher the prices or your dream destination may be sold out.  But, don't be discouraged, call as soon as you start thinking about Christmas in Hawaii to give your travel agent enough time to shop for savings and promotions that can lead to more resort credit or extra amenities to add value to your vacation. 

Decide who, what and where you’re going to celebrate the holidays with and call your travel agent today!  Leave the stress of last minute travel arrangements behind, so you only have to dream about your upcoming vacation when the darker, colder winter returns.
