about us

Training can often be associated with long boring seminars or meetings. Not at TA4Life. Our training program is considered by many travel experts to be the best in the industry. Mark Jacobs (Managing Director), who sits on the Advisory Boards of both Carnival and Norwegian Cruise lines, is regarded as the top trainer in the Travel Industry. He had created a training program that brings fun back and allows new agents to better understand the ins and outs of being a travel agent. With his guidance you will feel like a seasoned Travel Agent in a very short time.

Jason Jacobs, Managing Director
Under his wing, Cruising Agents has rapidly grown and been the recipient of multiple travel industry awards, including the distinction of Carnival Cruise Line Travel Agency of the Year.

As a surfer and environmentalist, Jason developed a passion for travel early on that ultimately led him to create TA4Life so that he could give others the opportunity to enjoy travel and book travel for themselves, family and friends. He has a long history of successful business ventures and currently owns a nationally recognized telecommunications company, as well as multiple jewelry stores. With 10 years of Travel Industry.
