 What Are the Perks of Being a Travel Agent? 

With Dream Vacations, one of the biggest benefits you’ll experience as a travel advisor is the flexibility to sell vacation packages and enjoy your life at the same time. Whether that’s going on trips of your own, spending time with loved ones or taking an afternoon to curl up with a good book, you’ll have the chance to do so while still bringing in money. The work is done remotely, so you can work on your schedule and from anywhere in the world. You can sell vacations from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. 

This flexibility also allows you to be your own boss – you can work as much or as little as you want to meet the goals you set for yourself! For some people, that looks like working as a part time travel agent. You determine the hours you put in. 

Whatever your schedule, you’ll be able to find time to pursue your passion for travel. That passion is what draws many travel advisors to the industry in the first place. A major perk of being a travel agent with Dream Vacations is the opportunity to travel using special industry rates and access discounted or free vacations. This allows you to give clients firsthand reports of what it’s like to lay on the sandy beaches in the Caribbean or sip a glass of wine in the countryside of Italy. 

How Are Travel Agents Paid? 

Dream Vacations Advisors earn a  travel agent commission on every sale. This is a minimum of 60% of the supplier commission on each individual sale. You’ll also earn additional commissions from extra products, such as insurance and guided tours. 

You set your goals and your hard work determines how much you earn – there are no sales minimums as a Dream Vacations Advisor.
