What does it cost?
There is a non-refundable fee of $150 to join the agency's onboarding program where we will provide basic training to get you started.  A annual technology fee is charged upon completion of the onboarding program & signing of your Independent Contractor/Travel Advisor Agreement.

 

Please understand an investment is made for both parties when bringing a new Travel Advisor onboard.  It is expected that The Academy training program will be completed within THREE months (90 days) of signing your training agreement. If you cannot commit to doing so, please consider applying at another time.  If you do not complete the onboarding program within the 90 days as outlined, an Independent Contractor/Travel Advisor Agreement may not be extended to you.  In addition to a financial commitment, there is also a time investment involved.  You must dedicate several hours per week to complete the program.

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.  A client may have to cancel their vacation, meaning you lose compensation for any work up to that point.  Personal vacations will most likely change for you as you never really take off your Travel Advisor 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 will 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, much more than one anticipates, and the agency asks that you be booking vacations regularly.  Ultimately, the more you dedicate yourself to your business, the more earning potential exists.

Other Important Information

We are currently able to enter into agreement with residents of the United States, except for individuals residing in Hawaii or California.  We cannot book clients who reside in Hawaii or California as we do not have a Seller of Travel license for either state.

Reminder, this is an independent contractor opportunity.  Employment and benefits are not being offered.
