So, You Want to Become a Travel Seller?
What would you like to do?
As a Travel Seller You Can Sell Cruises, Tours & Much, Much More!
A Host Agency or Travel Franchise can give a new or experienced travel agent a great way to sell travel from home!
New to the industry and experienced alike, travel agents can benefit greatly from an affiliation with a Travel Host Agency, or through the investment in a Travel Franchise.
These Travel Agents can choose from a diverse selection of opportunities, many of which provide consumer referrals, networking & marketing opportunities, much higher commission levels, proprietary pricing on many products and services and so much more.
Host Agencies & Franchises want to help you succeed and grow your Home Based Travel business. Your success grows their business and becomes their success!
They provide the resources and information necessary for Travel Agents to effectively compete in today's travel marketplace.
They provide suppliers with a growing distribution system of trained and experienced agents to sell their products and services.
They provide commission opportunities that may not be available through other sources.
They help you maximize your profits on suppliers you sell!
They provide eligible agents with travel benefits, including Familiarization Trips at greatly reduced rates, including tours, cruises, airlines, hotels, resorts & more!
Many Home Based Travel Agents are seasoned travel professionals. Many of the current Home Based Travel Agents were traditional, retail agency owners, managers and full-service front line agents with many years experience selling travel.
Experience makes a difference! The experienced agent knows how to avoid the unseen problems that can easily ruin any business trip or vacation. This experience brings unmeasurable value to any travel experience. Additionally, the experienced agent "shops" for their customers, and does not just sell from a supplied "menu" of services.
Specialization / Niche Market expertise! Many Home Based Travel Agents have a special niche market that they are experts in. A consumer looking for a 3 week expedition to Nepal would much rather deal with an expert on that destination than a call center order-taker.
When you join a Host Agency or buy a Travel Franchise, you will be considered a "real" travel agent - and you will be taken seriously by the travel consumer. Consumers, in general, know that these companies are not "call centers", staffed with order-takers fresh out of a 2 week company sales training course, as most major internet travel agencies are, where you may make your reservation with one salesperson and be serviced by any one or more of the other hundreds of salespeople in the center!
You will be independent, experienced Home Based Travel Agents, who take pride in the ability to provide great service and great prices!
The other advantages of Host Agencies and Travel Franchises are clear...
* The combined buying power of many agents' volume means better pricing! The industry recognizes the value and numbers that Host Agencies & Travel franchises represent.
You can compete with the mega-agencies as a successful hosted agent or travel franchisee!
* Home based agents have (much) lower overhead! As much as 90% less real overhead than retail travel agencies and call centers!
* Independent travel agents enjoy their work more and provide better service! Home Based Travel Agents are their own boss! They have a sincere, vested interest in their customers' travel experiences. And they live at the office - literally - if they are home-based!
