Cortland Travel Center co-owners, Cindy Benz and Debby Rainbow are re-introducing the Cortland community to the benefits a local travel agency can provide. Without a travel agency or the expertise of local agents, since April, many county residents had been forced to travel out of town to make vacation arrangements. "Historic Downtown Cortland, with a recent influx of new businesses, provides an ideal environment for the new business to build upon the positive momentum of the community," Said Adam Megivern of the Cortland Downtown Partnership.
Cindy and Debby's Cortland Travel Center, located at 11 Clinton Avenue, is associated with BTI Travel Consultants, a Syracuse agency. Combining strong regional support from BTI with 35 years of local expertise from knowledgeable agents, presents a strong business model with a connection to the community. Regarding the business venture, Rainbow commented, "We are happy to be back in town available to help local residents with their travel plans." Benz agreed and added "We want to continue to serve our past clients as well as attract and welcome new customers."
Both agents have significant travel experience having visited almost every island in the Caribbean, numerous areas of Mexico, as well as many countries in Europe. Their first hand knowledge of domestic destinations includes popular locations like Hawaii, Alaska, California, Florida, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Colorado. Cindy and Debby have also traveled with various cruise lines and look forward to sharing their expertise with clients looking to plan any type of vacation.
Cortland Travel Center will offer tours, cruises, airline tickets, and money saving vacation packages. The office hours are Monday - Friday 8:30am to 5:00 pm and Saturday by appointment. Visit them online at www.cortlandtravelcenter.com or call 607-299-4226 for additional information.
