Passionate About Travel Planning?
Departure Lounge is a trailblazer in the realm of luxury travel, and we’ve been growing rapidly due to the success our Travel Advisors have with crafting unforgettable experiences for delighted clients across the globe. We’re expanding our network of advisors and are looking for travel specialists in Denver to join our luxury host travel agency.
As a member of the prestigious Virtuoso international travel network, Departure Lounge provides travel clients with exceptional guidance, insider experiences, perks, and upgrades. Our travel advisors have worldwide access to the finest travel providers and resources, along with top status in the preferred-agency programs of the best luxury travel brands.
If you are interested in joining the Departure Lounge advisor team of independent contractors, we would love to talk with you. Though there may be many host agencies you could choose to work with, we set ourselves apart through innovation and unparalleled support for both our clients and our travel advisors. We are looking for agents in the Denver area who are established sellers of luxury travel and are looking to grow, along with who are ready to begin a career as a travel advisor.
Our compensation plan is as innovative as our business concept. For U.S.-based advisors, we provide several compensation options: 1) commission split for individual advisors; 2) commission split for teams working under one contract; or 3) a flat monthly fee for individual advisors that lets you keep 100% of commissions for clients you have sourced. Our advisors generally have 50-100 affluent client households for which they arrange travel several times per year.
For travel advisors who are new or do not have much experience when it comes to selling travel but are knowledgeable and well-traveled, Departure Lounge helps you develop strategies to find and attract new clients. Our agency also generates qualified leads, which are placed with our agency’s travel advisors in their respective cities.
While it’s possible to build your practice on your own as a fully independent travel agent, working with Departure Lounge, a leading Denver host travel agency, provides you with support, leverage for exclusive deals, complimentary upgrades and unique perks for your clients, new leads, and opportunities to network with our partners and other agents—while also giving you room to learn, grow, and succeed as you help clients with their travels.
Departure Lounge Travel Advisor Keys To Success
|Wanderlust & Experience||Sales, Skills & Service||Relationships, Connections & Kindness|
|Travelers value working with a travel advisor who often times has “been there and done that.” That means your travel experience is crucial, as is your experience with luxury travel providers and key attractions at destinations. If you have not “been everywhere,” your experience with a region or two, or experience with a specific form of travel (such as safaris) can be a great base of knowledge to start with. Our global connections through the Virtuoso network enable our travel advisors to plan and arrange fantastic vacations even for destinations that the travel advisor has not personally explored yet.||Presenting and talking about travel options passionately and effectively is typically the easy part for a prospective travel advisor. You also need to be proficient with computers and be comfortable utilizing technology, online websites, forms and booking tools, as well as texting and email. You also need to be strategic and thorough in working with and keeping track of details, responding quickly and communicating clearly with travel providers and clients. As your host agency, we will work to provide the assistance and resources you need to help ensure your success.||To succeed as a Denver luxury travel advisor, you need to have 50-100+ affluent households that rely regularly on you to plan their travel throughout the year. That means that you, as a prospective advisor, ideally need to have a large personal network of affluent family members, friends, and colleagues who would entrust you with arranging their travel and would be happy to recommend you to others. The Departure Lounge culture is built on kindness and a helpful spirit, so new team members need to demonstrate those same qualities. Our partners put people first and provide dedicated professional support for clients.|
