Becoming an Independent Travel Agent
Did you know that it's possible to become an Independent Travel Agent (ITA) & earn the commission back on ALL travel you book, including personal trips?
We all know people who travel, whether it's friends, family, colleagues, or our postman so it just make sense that 'we' make the bookings and earn the commission back from them. It's the perfect opportunity to earn an additional income or create a full time job from the comforts of your own home.
How does it work?
You will be partnered with a host travel agency who has 25 years experience in the industry and are ABTA protected.
As an Independent Travel Agent (ITA) you receive an IATA number which you need to legally sell travel and your own unique login to the host agencies back office.
Via the back office you can book flights, accommodation, cruises, day trips, car hire & even theatre tickets. Anything related to travel you are able book from the comfort of your own home or anywhere in the world & of course, you earn the commission back from it. Commissions range anywhere from 8-25% depending on what you're booking & which supplier you are using.
There are no targets involved and this business is what you want to make of it. Whether you want to use it to save & earn the commissions on your own travel, if you just want it to be a side hustle to make an additional income by booking for close friends & family or if you want to make it into a serious business for it to be a full time income. The choice is yours.
What happens if something goes wrong with a booking? Yourself and your customer will have 24/7 access to the host agencies customer service team, & you are covered by insurance so that you will be able to travel with ease.
What training is involved?
To become a qualified Independent Travel agent you need to complete some 2 types of mandatory training. Firstly through the host agency (takes approx 4 hours) and secondly through ABTA (takes approx half an hour).
Once you have completed this mandatory training you can start booking travel straight away.
You will also be able to get as much 1 to 1 mentoring from the agent who introduced you to the business, aswell as getting a step-by-step guide on how to run your business successfully.
On top of all of that, you will have access to some unbelievable training from external suppliers through the back office. You can complete this training as & when you please & complete as much as you desire.

Who are the Suppliers?
Not only can you make bookings via the back office, but you will also be partnered with some of the biggest names in the travel industry, meaning you will be able to make bookings and earn commissions through these suppliers too, to name a few:
- Funway Holiday's
London Theatre Direct
What about the Community?
One of the best things about the business is the community, Palmtrees & Paycheques. Although this is your own business you will never be alone and you will be surrounded by an extremely supportive team & community. There will always be someone willing to help!
The one thing everyone in the team has in common is that we are all normal people who wanted more from life & are doing it to help others achieve their dreams.
