Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

  • q-iconWhat exactly is a home-based travel agent?

    Actually, it’s more than a travel agent who works at home. These days, it’s someone who follows the strategies spelled out in the Home-Based Travel Agent Success Course to sell
    travel on their own terms, no matter where they set up shop. We explain it all here.

  • q-iconWhich host agency should I join?

    The one that’s right for you, of course. And only you can figure that out. We give you the
    tools, you do the research. Oh, and who says you have to join a host agency anyway? We show you how to be completely independent. More info here.

  • q-iconHow much does it cost to get started?

    How does nothing sound? It really is possible to hook up with an outfit that will allow you to sell travel and earn a commission without spending a dime. We tell all about it here.

  • q-iconDo I get a travel agent ID card?

    Hoo boy! You really need to learn the truth about those “travel agent ID” come-ons. We tell all about it here.

  • q-iconHow much money can I make?

    There are actually home-based agents who earn more than a million a year. Not many, but they exist. There are more who earn into six figures. Then there are some who earn a modest amount working part time and others whose main goal is to save money on their own travel. It’s all about how you define your business, which we will help you do. Whatever your goal, we know it’s reachable. We can show you the route but you have to walk the walk. Learn more here.

  • q-iconDo I need a license?

    You mean like a drivers license, where you take a test to prove you know what you’re doing and won’t be a danger to yourself or others? The answer is “No.” There are, however, some states who want your money just to call yourself a travel agent. Think of it as yet another tax and you’ll be close to the mark. We explain it here.

We are unique in the home-based travel agent space. We do not sell a business opportunity. In other words, we are NOT a host agency, so we aren't asking you to PAY to work for us!

We prosper only by giving you the straight poop and putting you on a level playing field with host agencies who know all the ins and outs that they will never share with you. Unlike other sites that claim to offer "unbiased" information and resources about being a home-based travel agent, we do not promote host agencies or accept their money to advertise them.

Instead, we provide you with the information you need to investigate them and make your own, informed decisions. We don't want you to be a sappy travel agent. We want you to be a savvy travel agent.
