Have you always wished you could travel more and see the world? Do you love to imagine your ideal vacation experiences? Have you always dreamed of having extra flexibility and choice in your schedule? We have good news – you can have all these things by becoming a Dream Vacations travel advisor.

If you’ve often thought about working in a travel business on the side, but wondered, “How much commission do travel agents make?”— the good news is… as much as you want! With Dream Vacations, you can work to the degree that fits your goals – meaning you can have a fun and fulfilling part-time job with industry-leading support and unlimited earning potential.

What Is a Dream Vacations Advisor?

When you become a Dream Vacations Advisor, you’ll be partnered with a Dream Vacations Franchisee who already has an established business. They’ll guide you through the process of getting set up and going through your Dream Vacations training, then they’ll host you within their business as an independent contractor. You’ll still be self-employed and will work autonomously, but you’ll have them there to mentor you, advise you and celebrate your success!

The best part? Because this is a remote opportunity, you don’t have to be in the same city – or even the same state – as your host. You can run your business from wherever you want, including your sofa, your favorite café or even a hammock by the beach! You’ll have your own booking website, so any travel agent commission will be linked to you, and you’ll have your own client base that you can build up with referrals and repeat bookings.

How Do Commissions Work?

As one of our valued advisors, you’ll earn a minimum of 60% of the supplier commission on each sale you make – making Dream Vacations an industry leader when it comes to the typical commission for travel agents. Much of your income will be from selling cruises – but before you ask, “How much commission does a travel agent make on a cruise?” don’t forget you can also offer your clients additional products – including insurance, add-ons and tours – all of which you’ll earn commission from.

Another bonus is that with Dream Vacations, there’s no minimum sales requirements to meet. The only target you’ll be aiming for is the one you set for yourself – and the more you sell, the more you’ll earn. Every two weeks, your franchisee will calculate your share of the commissions, and it’ll be in your pocket for you to spend however you like!

How Much Does It Cost to Become a Travel Agent?

One of the great things about being a home based travel advisor with Dream Vacations is that you can start earning extra income selling vacations for just $39 a month. In return for this fee, you’ll get the mentorship of your franchisee, a customized website and booking system, marketing and promotional materials, and insurance. You’ll also get access to over 1,500 training programs, which will cover everything you need to grow your business.

Initially, your biggest investment will be your time, as you begin to promote your services and go through all the training. You’ll also want to take some familiarization trips, so you can get to know the vacations you’ll be recommending! Further, you’ll build up your client base, getting to know your customers, and offering them their ideal vacation recommendations – so they’ll book more, and you’ll earn more!
