How To Be An Independent Contractor With Us?

You deserve to have a mentor and a team that supports you so you can be successful in your business.

We invest a TON of time in our agents and want to respect your time and ours.

We require all new agents that are interested in joining our agency to complete our Travel Agent 101 Workshop online prior to inquiring to work with us.


This workshop will cover the basics of what it entails to sell travel as a professional travel advisor. 

Once you've completed the workshop, you may then email us requesting a copy of the inquiry form and we can schedule an interview to see if we are a great match to partner together.

There is NO requirement to work with our agency after completing the workshop. You are welcome to pursue this career independently or with another agency as you choose. The training will better prepare you for being ready to sell and market to clients.

What kind of support do we offer to our team?

  • Strategies to find a profitable niche
  • Navigating and understanding common booking engines
  • Framework for knowing which tour operator to use when designing a client's trip
