“United Vacations will continue to be highly supportive of the travel agency community. We will offer the tools, programs and earnings opportunity agents desire, combined with the quality and service of United Airlines and top hotel brands,” said John Hanratty, senior vice president of travel agency engagement for The Mark Travel Corporation’s managed brands. www.unitedvacationsagent.com; www.vaxvacationaccess.com
