Startup Costs

Let's Talk Travel Agency Fees

For what you get when you partner with us here at TPI as your travel host agency, you’d think you’d pay through the nose. The level of support alone is worth its weight in gold. For example, you’ll get access to the best travel agency marketing tools and techniques, as well as state-of-the-art travel agency software (including robust travel agency back office software technology). But we don’t believe in nickel and diming you. We believe you should keep more of your money. Technology, community, a fun, fresh vibe, exclusive supplier promotions, unparalleled marketing resources, and help 24/7 makes partnering with us the deal of the century.

Show Me the Money

Depending on your level of commitment to us, we estimate the basic startup costs to own your own travel agency include:

  • Training: $295-$895
  • Host Initiation Fee: $0
  • Typical Business Startup Costs: $500
  • Commitment to Us as Your Host Agency (Annually): $240-$840

For a grand total of anywhere between $1234 to $2074. That’s not a ton of money to start your own business and be your own boss. But do you have what it takes to be a travel agent though?
