Travel Specialists by Advantage
Travel Specialists by Advantage is a dedicated flexible homeworking model provided by The Advantage Travel Partnership, the UK’s largest independent travel agency and travel management company.
Our UK members produce more than £4.5 billion of travel sales each year, with our total group sales exceeding £12 billion annually, with the inclusion of the partners in our international TMC network. This gives us extensive buying power, resulting in leading commercial terms with more than 300 tour operators, travel companies and technology partners.
In 2020, we launched our homeworking division, Travel Specialists by Advantage, with a market-leading fee structure of just 2% of turnover, enabling you to retain more of your earnings. Our flexible hybrid homeworking model combines the support of our traditional and managed services membership propositions, empowering you to run your company your way by selecting the assistance you need to grow your business.
We provide peace of mind with finances protected in a ring-fenced trust account, meaning that both your customers’ money and your commission is secure. With our model, you will also have access to a central Abta number, an Atol solution and extensive tailored marketing and business development support as well as enjoying a full schedule of events and networking opportunities.
Back office systems and technology solutions are provided, along with merchant facilities and the option of using our Travel Specialists by Advantage name or operating under your own brand.
Who we are
The Advantage Travel Partnership is 100% owned by our members meaning that everything we do is about delivering value to them. Over the past 20 months, we have demonstrated our commitment to our members through being a leading champion of the travel industry in both the consumer and trade media, acting as the voice of travel agents.
Our lobbying has resulted in significant recognition among our peers, the media and by the UK government, which has helped boost awareness of the benefits of booking with a human travel agent.
