KHM Travel Group’s long-standing relationships with our Preferred Travel Suppliers enable us to receive some of the highest commission payouts in the industry – and these great commissions are passed on to you! Our suppliers pay us a commission (as high as 20% of the total sale) based on the type of travel. Of that amount, you earn a commission payout of 80%. Once you hit $5,000 in gross commissions in a 12 month period, we will increase your payout to 90%! You will remain at that level as long as your rolling yearly average commissions are at least $5,000. To learn more about this process and see an example, please see our Commissions page.
How Much Can I Make As a Travel Agent?
The amount of money you can make is really up to you! Some of our travel agents work this business to help friends and family plan travel and are able to generate a couple hundred dollars each month. Other agents see the benefits of working with small groups and have commission checks in the thousands. Recently, an agent who came to us with no prior travel experience earned a $6,800 commission check. We’ve also had one of our travel agents make $9,000 on his very first sale!
