How Our Travel Agents Make Money

How Travel Agents Make Money

Money. We've all got to make it, so we're here to explain how our agents earn an income. We like to conduct business with full transparency. We want you to trust we are always looking out for your best interests. The good news is, clients don't pay us directly for our expertise and assistance in crafting unforgettable journeys. Instead, our income comes from a behind-the-scenes arrangement that ultimately benefits you, the traveler.

Travel Agents Make Money from Supplier Partners

Commission from Suppliers: When we help you secure accommodations, book activities, or arrange other travel-related services, we work with various suppliers in the industry. These suppliers, such as hotels, resorts, cruise lines, tour operators, and more, value our role in connecting travelers to their offerings. As a result, they pay us a commission for bringing in business. This commission is built into their pricing structure so you're paying the same amount whether you book with a travel agent, on a third-party website or directly through the vendors website. Bottom line, we have access to the same (or better) pricing than you are seeing online, we just take all the stress of searching & planning off your shoulders.

Now you might be wondering if that means we'll push you to use certain suppliers because we make a higher commission. We don't know about other travel agencies, but for us the answer is a resounding NO! Commissions are about the same across the board, but more importantly, our satisfaction is our top priority - not making a few more dollars on your dream vacation.

Preferred Partners with Price Match Guarantee: Furthermore, rest assured that we prioritize our clients' best interests. Almost all of our preferred partners offer a price match guarantee, giving you peace of mind that you're getting the most competitive rates available. If you discover the exact same trip at a better deal elsewhere, they'll gladly match the price, ensuring you get the most value for your investment.
