Welcome Aboard, New Travel Agents!
We’re passionate about…TRAVEL! But we are also motivated business owners, working hard to deliver incredible experiences for our clients while utilizing the right tools to maximize profits along the way.
Here’s how we’re setting you up for success –
Three Steps to Get Started!
Travel Agents are all about thinking outside the box! And your business model is no different. Pick Your Path to start your agency - from branding and red tape requirements to commissions earned - and Pursue Your Passion to Become a Vacation Expert with a specialization that means the most to you!
What's in a Name?
One of your first major decisions as a small business owner – naming your agency!
For some new travel agents, this is one of the most exciting parts of starting your new travel agency! For others, a transition to a new industry is enough to put on an already-full plate – branding and marketing can be daunting, not fun.
At The Paper Ticket, the choice is yours!
When you join with your own brand, your membership will include all our key benefits:
- Registration for our “Welcome to the Industry“ Virtual Training with Your Choice of Vacation Expert Sessions
- All the Industry Memberships & Accreditations Required to Start Booking Today!
- Industry-Leading Supplier Commissions
- State-of-the-Art Customer Relationship Management (CRM) System
- Meaningful Connections to Suppliers & BDMs
- One-on-One Support from the Team at The Paper Ticket
- Community Support & Mentorship Program from your Fellow Members
When you choose this path, your agency’s branding and marketing is entirely up to you! You’ll design a logo and (most likely!) claim your brand’s domain to create a website and email address. This road can be slow and the bills can stack up if you have to outsource the work, but this path is preferred by those who want to build a brand with their identity at the forefront.
Launching your agency as The Paper Ticket by You (*Insert Your Name Here*!) lets you start with all your focus on building your knowledge and getting comfortable in a new industry and as a new business owner. You will receive all the same member benefits above plus:
- Custom Logo Pack including – Logo PNG, Email Signature Tile, and Facebook Page Cover & Instagram Profile Photo
- @thepaperticket Email Address
- The Paper Ticket branded Social Media Content
- Profile Feature on The Paper Ticket Website
- Necessary Legal Paperwork to Securely Operate Your Business including – Client Contract, Travel Insurance Waiver, and Credit Card Authorization
Choosing this path simplifies your journey and accelerates your business start-up. You are no less a business owner in this case – you are just starting your business with some pre-determined features. For example, you’re encouraged to market The Paper Ticket by You on your own – especially with your own social media business pages – and, while we provide loads of branded material for you to use, we do not post it for you and ultimately the content will be your choice – you can use all of what we offer or none!
Your membership package includes all the benefits detailed above. Choose the commission level that best suits your business!
