We are committed to helping independent travel agents live a lifestyle of success and are looking for passionate experts that sell cruises, tours, and vacation packages and who run their businesses with integrity and professionalism.

The following are a few key factors that set Travel Best Bets apart and why joining Travel Best Bets is your path to success we call it — TRUST:

Technology

Reputation

Unlimited Earning Potential

Support

Travel Professional Community

Technology

Our goal is to continue maximizing efficiencies with technology. It is part of the business that will constantly change and evolve to keep up with the times!

We aim to have easy to use and efficient technology that is at the same time. As part of Travel Best Bets Team Mobile you will have access to our CRM database, in-house product databases, on-line booking engine, support resources, marketing documents, the back-end commission interface, a dedicated Travel Best Bets phone number & so much more…everything you need to run a successful agency.

We also offer your independent business its own private-label webpage (ie: www.travelbestbets.com/YOURNAME), which provides customers with real-time pricing, promotions and rich content that is automatically updated. Enjoy a high-quality website and a robust marketing program without spending any money or time managing it – we do it for you so you can focus on selling!

Reputation

We have a well-known brand and long-standing reputation that clients know & trust! Over the past 20 years Travel Best Bets has established a successful brand in the travel industry and is known as being one of the top-producing agencies in Canada. We are deeply committed to the integrity and professionalism required in keeping our excellent reputation now and in the future.

Travel Best Bets is also part of the Ensemble Travel® Group. Established in 1968, Ensemble Travel® Group is an organization made up of approximately 850 travel agencies across the U.S. and Canada. They design unique consumer vacation products, innovative marketing programs, robust technology tools, and relevant business services for all members. By leveraging their North American presence, they help boost members’ profits, deliver high volume sales to our preferred suppliers, and enable members to offer their clients authentic experiences that will inspire their passion for travel. The resources made available through membership of Ensemble including exclusive products, marketing, training & events are invaluable to today’s travel professionals.

Unlimited Earning Potential

We’re the solution to making significantly more than the average home-based travel professional! At our organization, our belief is that when you succeed, we all succeed. Choose what you want your independent agency to sell, specialize in what you’re good at selling, and have the freedom to focus on your clients – we’ll take care of the rest.

Studies show that the #1 sales’ concern is generating new leads. New clients are fundamental to your success and we will provide new leads in 2 ways – ‘potential client’ leads from our quote request database and ‘past client’ leads from our CRM database so that your independent agency can focus on what you do best – selling dream vacations. Remember, it’s not just about the commission splits like you may have seen with other host agencies. Based on the actual income potential for your agency, it isn’t what a host agency splits with you; it’s how much you make at the end of the day that counts!

In addition, having a home-based business has its own advantages including:

Tax deductions
– Office supplies including computers & printers
– Partial rent & utilities
– Phone bills
– Travel expenses

Other benefits
– a flexible schedule
– no time wasted commuting
– access to travel agent rates & incentives
– access to a benefits program

Support

We take the headache out of having your own business. You outsource the back-end of your business to the Travel Best Bets support staff so that you can focus on selling!

Our dedicated support staff handles the aspects of business that take time away from selling. We offer accounting and commission tracking, access to exclusive Travel Best Bets product & rates, access to exclusive group space, a customer care and contact center and continuous marketing support including marketing to your own clients at no additional cost. A variety of vendor and internal professional development programs are made available to our network almost weekly and you can increase your product knowledge with our access to FAM trips, webinars, ship inspections & in-house (headquarters) training sessions.

Travel Professional Community

We are a community of professional, like-minded business owners that you can join by becoming a member of Travel Best Bets Connected Agents.

With Travel Best Bets, you are not in business alone. Enjoy the perks of owning your agency while being a part of a network of entrepreneurial peers. We have a family-style atmosphere and encourage communication within the network.
