Helping others make magical memories is what we do.  Our team is growing and we are currently looking for qualified applicants who are interested in joining the Reach for the Magic Destinations team as an Independent Contractor.  Independent Contractors are not employees of the agency, but conduct services as a contracted Travel Planner with Reach for the Magic Destinations.   As Independent Contractors, our Travel Planners set their own hours and work from home.  A kind and friendly personality along with a high level of professionalism is required.  We are helping clients create magical family memories, so client care is our highest priority.  Our Travel Planners must understand that we assist in planning the vacation of the client’s dreams, not our own.

Please read through this information if you are interested in joining our team.  If you make it all the way through and are still interested, we invite you to complete the application and see where this leads.

What does it cost?

There is an administrative annual fee charged.  This fee covers an email address, inclusion in the agency E&O insurance policy, first order of business cards, and other materials. Examples of expenses you may incur as part of operating your business:  home office equipment, phone line, business cards, marketing materials, office supplies, internet, required state licensing, postage, etc. 

It’s not all sunshine and roses…

Being a travel professional isn’t all pixie dust and glittery fun.  This is a commission-based business, which means you do all the work prior to being compensated.  It also could mean working with a potential client for weeks (putting in several hours of work) and then they choose to book on their own, book with a different agency, or not go at all.  Personal vacations will most likely change for you as you never really take off your Travel Planner hat.  We don’t want to scare you away, but do want to provide you with a basic understanding of how this job works.  It  can take a minimum of 20+ hours a week in order to successfully launch your business.  In addition to quoting, booking, and assisting clients it is suggested you spend time on personal development and marketing your business.  The job is a lot of work and the agency asks that you to be booking vacations regularly.  Ultimately, the more you dedicate yourself to your business, the more earning potential exists.
