How to Become a Travel Agent (AKA Rockstar!)
You found it – the most exciting and fulfilling career anywhere. Well, we think so. You’re embarking on an amazing journey that is both personally fulfilling and financially rewarding! If you wish to become a successful travel agent, this is where you start.
Since the landscape of starting your own travel agency (and booking travel!) has changed massively over the last few years, it’s crucial that you understand the commitment, focus and soft skills necessary to attract clients, curate, book and manage consumer travel.
Thriving in the travel industry
Thriving in the travel industry involves a combination of the right motivation (this is NOT about your personal travel, free travel or discounts), ability to learn in a variety of ways (mostly online), attention to detail and business commitment.
We want everyone to feel the buzz of making unforgettable travel memories for their clients. That’s why we’d like you to take a few minutes to complete the following application, so we can learn more about you and what drives you to become a travel agent and join the travel industry. This will allow us to determine your abilities to be a successful Rockstar in the business – even if it’s part-time!
Ok, let’s go!

Commission Without Us
When you go in alone, you don’t get the same benefits as when you partner with us. Not only do you have to wait for your piddly commission checks to come from numerous suppliers, but only a small percentage of what you worked so hard for comes back to you.
Commission With Us
With us as your Host Agency, you get more money in your pocket. All of your hard work booking trips for your clients deserves a better cut. Depending on your level of commitment to us, no matter what level it is, you’ll end up getting more than double the commission than if you didn’t use us as your Host Agency, and you get one big check twice a month. Easy Money. What’s not to like?
Don’t Stress. Just Jump In. We Got You.
Information overload? Yeah, we know becoming a travel agent seems like it could be a pipe dream if you are new to the business, but that’s simply not the case when you’ve got us. When you are a member of the TPI Family of Rockstars, you can leave all the questions and doubt behind, because we’ve got your back. You do you, and we’ll so support you. As a Rockstar, you get:
- Office Staff Support (They Work 9 AM – 6 PM M-F for You)

- Lots of Help with Promotions from Our Preferred Suppliers and Consortia, Signature Travel Group
