Whilst I was backpacking across Australia and South-East Asia, I came across a travel opportunity that suggested I could become a licensed travel agent and make incredible savings, whilst earning when booking travel. At the time, I was skeptical and already swept away in my travel bubble. It wasn't until I returned home and kept seeing the intriguing opportunity on Instagram, that I decided to take the leap!
I soon realised that the many flights I had taken, hostels I had stayed in, and daily trips and outings I had endeavoured on, could have all been booked through the travel programme and by doing so, I would have saved a substantial amount on my travel. I only wish I had joined sooner!
Anyone who knows me will tell you I will already be planning my next adventure! Joining the travel programme has opened up so many doors for me, including opportunities to go on once in a lifetime trips, that I always thought would be well out of my budget, particularly after just returning from such a big adventure. I am now spoilt for choice deciding between places such as The Maldives, Mexico, Dubai and Jamaica.
Within a few weeks of joining the programme, I had already begun earning a side income booking for friends, family and clients. It had also allowed me to begin organising and booking my own group tours; something that I am so excited to do! Soon, I will be sat on a beach anywhere in the world earning a full time income from something I enjoy so much.
I love to share my experiences with others and now I get the joy of helping people to see the world by booking their dream holidays, taking them with me on an adventure of a lifetime or showing them how they can become a part of this amazing opportunity.
The Travel Programme gives you the opportunity to become an Independent Travel Agent with an IATA license, ABTA and ATOL protection allowing you to save and earn from travel.
Who knew it could be that easy!
Did you know that every time you book through a booking site or direct with a hotel, commission is already built into the price? When you join the Travel Collective and become an Independent Travel Agent you get to earn that commission back! Not only do you earn commissions on your own travel ,but also when you book for your friends , family and entire network too.
If like myself, you already plan and book your own holidays, imagine doing this whilst earning money back on every aspect of travel you book. Not to mention, the exclusive industry only benefits you receive , allowing you to travel more (and smarter).
So whether you just want to book and save on your own travel, earn commission by booking for other, or help others learn how to become a part of the travel programme then this is for you!

Like me, some of you may absolutely love travel and have gained experience by taking lots of trips yourself. Others of you may have worked in travel previously, or even studied travel in some aspect. Whilst there's others of you who may be saying you have no experience in travel. Whichever category you fall under is fine, we provide you will all the information and training you need. You will begin with the mandatory training videos. Once you have completed these, then you will be licensed to book and sell travel. These can be done in your own time and at your own pace. There is also other optional training available such as information about our suppliers. I would recommend after a couple of evenings of study you'll be good to go! There are many useful Facebook groups, WhatsApp chats and zoom calls for extra support. If there is a question you have, chances are others are also thinking the same.
I currently work full time too. There is no pressure or targets to sell holidays so you can absolutely do this around your current commitments. You can book as little or as much travel as you like. At the same time, I am looking to be earning a full time income (whilst travelling) from the programme soon.
It costs £142 to join which is a one off payment and is your IATA license charge. This is the number that gives you global recognition within the travel industry. You then pay a subscription of £32 per month, beginning from the second month which works out at about £1.40 per day. This keeps your subscription active and covers your admin, insurance, support, and back office systems.
If you decide it is not for you, that is absolutely fine. If you decide to cancel within the first 30 days, you will get your £142 joining fee back. Any point after that, you can cancel your monthly subscription. You are not tied into a contract, meaning you can leave at any time.
Well that's what we all thought too... I watched for months while I was travelling before I decided to take the leap and I only wish I had joined sooner! I am sharing the programme with you as I use it myself and truly believe it is for everyone. You may still be unsure and that is okay. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have By using the contact us form, or reading out to me on instagram. We also have weekly information calls on Zoom where we talk through exactly how it all works and show you some of the supplier websites that we have access to. If you would like to join one of our calls, please let me know and I can share the information with you.
