We talk to a lot of agents that are just starting out in the travel industry. We've decided to take some of our most frequently asked questions, and answer a few of them in each newsletter!
- How much does it cost to get started?
We have a one-time start-up fee of $199. This covers a required background check and everything else involved with getting your account set-up. We have 4 different commissions plans ranging from 70% to 100%. The 70% plan has no monthly fee. Take a look at our site for all of our commission plans and their monthly prices. All plans give you access to our interactive agent forum, over 200 vendor contacts, robust commission manager, $2 million E&O insurance, our exclusive social media content website and more.
- What type of training is included?
Travel Quest has a variety of vendor specific training's available on demand. We have found that vendor specific training benefits the agent most. When it comes time to book you will have the knowledge of which vendor will best suit your customer. We also offer a Certificated Travel Leisure Specialist and Certificated Business Travel Specialist programs. These programs do have a cost and are offered through Travel Leaders.
- Do you carry E & O insurance?
Yes, we do carry Errors and Omissions insurance for our agents, as a part of our program. However, the deductible is $5,000 per incident. For more information on what E&O Insurance is, what it covers, or whether or not you should purchase your own, check out this great article by Stephanie over at Host Agency Reviews!
