Following the restructuring of its operations, Wendy Wu Tours has resigned from the U.S. Tour Operators Association (USTOA).

The Asia specialist has consequently ceased participation in USTOA's consumer-protection fund. Deposits made on or prior to July 17 are covered but deposits thereafter are not. 

Wendy Wu CEO Joe Karbo stated that the company has restructured its U.S. operations and will be launching a digitalized business model soon in the U.S. 

"For our existing agents and their bookings, rest assured our service offerings will remain unaltered. We look forward to associating with USTOA again in the near future," stated Karbo.

Wendy Wu Tours had joined the USTOA in 2012.
