Many people make the mistake of thinking that their love of Disney will mean that they can become a concierge travel consultant.  Competition is steep, and we truly wish and hope that you have exactly what we are looking for in our Agents in Training!

Please ask lots of questions and be honest during this process.  Finding the right fit between Agency and Agent is vital to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship.  Delve deep into the level of customer care services we provide, processes in place, back office, requirements, expectations and recommendations.  Please do not apply if you do not have LOTS of Disney travel experience.

 

We host periodic online webinars for potential recruits to hear from the Executive Team and other Agents.  This is a great opportunity to ask questions before you apply.  If you would like to be placed on that invitation mailing list, please provide us with your email address.  The only contact you will receive is occasional emails with date / time options.  You will be able to unsubscribe at any time.

Personal sales goals will be set on individual basis.  It is expected that all agents will sell a minimum of $50,000 a year beginning their 2nd year.  This Agency follows the professional guidelines set forth by IATA.  It is our goal that each Agent earn their personal IATA card.

Commission rates run between 50% – 70%.  Agents must continue to meet minimum sales goals to be eligible for commission percentage increases on total sales.  The agency owner reserves the right to increase or decrease (not lower than 50%) sales commission percentages based upon the level of service provided to the agent by the home office and consistency of meeting sales goals, and the marketing activity the agent has performed.  Commission are paid via check after the guest has traveled.
