We get asked this question a lot. Building a travel business requires hard work and time, but it can be very rewarding and profitable. TA4Life has agents that book travel for themselves and family members and make a few hundred dollars of extra income.
We also have agents that work at this full time and make over $10,000 a month. There is no standard, as everybody works at his or her own pace.
When you make travel bookings for yourself or your clients, our travel suppliers will pay a commission on the travel sale amount. The exact commission percentage can vary between 3% and 20%, with the average being around 14%. Whatever commission we receive, we pay you 50% or 80%… depending on Casual/Professional Program.
While we do not give customers or “leads” to new agents, we instead teach you (as part of our marketing training) how to develop your own clientele. In our “How to Market Your Agency” training, we go in-depth on how to find and build a clientele with little to no expenditures.
Most new agents will begin by selling to their friends and family, building out from there to their warm markets. This includes neighbors, co-workers, associates, alumni, and other groups of people with whom they associate.
Our company’s strategy has been to provide our agents with the highest commission payouts so that they have the funds to advertise if they choose to do so.
Once you complete our Online Application, you are generally only a few hours away from being able to start making travel reservations.
When we receive your application, we begin setting up your online Agent Portal and retail website. Once you are set up and linked with our accounting system, we will send you a confirmation email with your username and log-in instructions. Then you will begin your training.
Absolutely not! TA4Life is a full-service host travel agency dedicated to training and developing our network of professional travel agents.
All of the tools, training and support are geared toward assisting our nearly 3,000 agents sell more travel. TA4Life does not reward nor encourage recruitment of other travel agents.
