The woman in the post below faxed me the contracts and it seems simple enough to get out to me. The contract, as expected, exonerated YTB of pretty much any and everything. They do tell everyone that they need to comply with any and all local laws--so they are good.
The one thing that bothered me was that any customers that register on the site or book travel belong solely to YTB. I guess since the RTA is merely referring customers, they belong to the agency, but then again, most of the RTAs that have been commenting swear that they are an agent. And as an agent, I would be damned if I would give up my client list like that.
And totally unrelated, I find it odd that there were not any more comments on post regarding looking at the YTB money trail from a different point of view! Perhaps there is nothing that can be refuted?
