Our Travel Agent Education Program
Our mission is to empower, educate, support and promote independent travel agents. In order to book travel and gain new clients you have to be knowledgeable and confident about what you are selling. That’s why we take pride in making sure our agents have access to everything that need to learn how to run a business, and book travel…whether it’s a simple hotel reservation or a large group cruise.
Our Agent Basics courses cover all the travel agent fundamentals and provides guidance on owning your travel agency. After you have completed your New Agent training, you can move on to more advanced topics and take advantage of our live educational events.
The best part about our program is that you can learn on your own time, at your own pace! Our “on demand” travel education program allows you to learn at your convenience, so you don’t have to take time away from your other commitments. Our experts have created interactive web-based lessons and videos to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in the exciting world of travel!

How You’ll Get Educated
Your Travel Agent Portal is essentially your online office – and your online classroom! Here’s where you’ll learn the basics of selling travel, marketing your agency and how to book with our Preferred Suppliers.
Our start-up education program includes a structured, week-by-week breakdown of topics and exercises to guide you through your first few weeks as a travel agent. During this time, you’ll also receive Supplier Registration Emails with logins to multiple suppliers, and our support team will also be available to answer any questions.
After you’ve mastered the basics, you can continue your education with more advanced webinars, FAM trips, live educational events, and more!
