Independent Travel Experts
Independent Travel Experts (ITE) is part of The Travel Network Group. We have been giving your customers 100% financial protection for the past 25 years.
Our model means you have the freedom to drive forward your own business, with the security of one of the UK’s most successful travel companies to turn to should you need support or guidance. We look for a minimum of two years’ travel industry sales experience for new members of the ITE family, but are flexible for those who demonstrate the necessary drive and enthusiasm.
Whether you are new to homeworking or already have an established business, we will assist in developing existing and new skills to maximise your earning potential. Becoming a homeworker in the travel industry can be a rewarding and profitable career that provides you with a great work-life balance.
With a low joining fee of £220 and a £43 monthly fee, it is excellent value. Your starting commission is 61%, paid six weeks before the departure date of the booking, and there are tiered targets in place to increase this as your total sales revenue grows. We have more than 100 Independent Travel Experts and this number is growing.
Agents choose to work with us because they feel motivated, supported and valued, while we are here to help our homeworking team so they can concentrate on what matters most – serving their customers.
How we operate
ITE offers a bespoke induction and ongoing training along with extensive sales and administration support, and our industry-leading technology includes a CRM and back-office system, which can be accessed on your mobile. There is flexibility to choose the hours you work, with no set sales targets.
We offer webinar training sessions with us and suppliers plus social media support, access to a team Facebook page to share ideas with other agents, and a marketing portal with all the materials you need to network locally.
Your personal profile on the ITE website includes contact details and a URL to help you generate leads, plus there’s PR support to raise the profile of your business. We’ll also help plan your personal development and offer a lucrative recognition and rewards programme – including incentive payments – so you can grow your business for the future.
