What commission does Dugan's Travels pay?
75% and 80% to those who stay with the agency 3 years or more.

Commission

We pay 75% commission.  This is on everything that we get paid for your clients or bookings.  If a supplier offers a bonus commission, we will pay you 75% of it.

Agents who stay with us for 3 years- get 80% commission starting after their 3rd anniversary as a way to thank those who stay with us and as an incentive to keep our great agents.

What is a commission?  A commission is what suppliers pay us for making a booking.  Some travel reservations are non-commissionable.  An example of this is airline tickets with most airlines. 

Most hotels and rental car companies pay 10% commission to travel agencies.  If a hotel room costs $100 plus taxes, commission would be $10.00. 

Cruise and tour companies like Funjet Vacations or Gogo Tours pay anywhere from 10% to 20%.  It depends on what our production has been and what we are booking.  For example on some packages with Funjet Vacations we will get only 10% because that is all they will pay on that particular vacation.  However on other vacations they will pay us 16% commission. 

We are members of Vacation.com which allows us to get higher commissions.  We currently get 15% commission with Carnival and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.  Suppliers regularly increase our commission levels due to our sales.

You will always make 75% of what the agency is paid. You will be the person's needing travel reservations agent. You will contact them and do all the necessary legwork. You will make the bookings yourself with guidance. You will then get paid a commission of 75% of the TOTAL commission paid. We have our own IATA number. If we get a bonus commission or overrides from a supplier, you get 75% of it. If you charge a fee to a client, you get 75% of it.

Service Fees

Most agencies are charging service fees to their clients for their services.  Many of our independent agents charge fees for airline tickets since they would not earn a commission otherwise.  Standard amounts are $5-$25.  You can do this by charging a client's credit card using our online system.  You would book the airline ticket with the airline directly and then charge a separate fee to the client.  You would earn 75% of that fee.  However you are not required to do this.  This is completely up to you if you want to charge service fees.

 
One of the cruise lines we sell the most of is Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.

Facts about travel agents
educational_topleft.jpg

Travel agents are paid by suppliers such as hotels, rental car companies, tour operators, cruise lines, and some airlines to make reservations. It does not cost the client anything more to use a travel agent. In fact, travel agent often can get even better prices than a customer. There are several suppliers who do not work with the public and only with travel agent

Say you know someone who is booking a trip to Walt Disney World. He or she can book it with you and you can earn a commission off the sale. They would pay the same price as if they called Walt Disney Travel company themselves. Hotels, rental cars, packages, cruises, etc.. all offer a way to make a commission. You can also charge service fees to your clients if you would like to. Many agencies are now doing this.

You can also use our links to many online sites to earn a small amount. We are affiliated with most big travel websites.

You can also send clients to our online booking systems. However there is not a way for us to track who sends who to these websites. They only track the agency's sales as a whole, not broken down for each agent. But you can encourage your clients to use the websites and then notify you if they make a booking.

Here is an example of earnings.

Carnival Cruise Line booking for a cruise with a base fare of $2000 (base fare means before taxes and non commissionable items)

Dugan's Travels will earn 16% of that. So $320.00. You earn 75% of all commissions you bring in. You would get $240.00 for that booking. It does not cost the client anymore money to use you. They would have paid $2000 or more going through the cruise line directly.

Many suppliers deal exclusively with agents. They will not deal with the public. So to get those suppliers' prices, the client must go through a travel agency.
