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.
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.
