About Departure Lounge

Departure Lounge is an Austin, TX based luxury travel host agency established in 2013 by Virtuoso senior executive, Keith Waldon. Departure Lounge is open to agents of all experience levels and offers monthly payment of commissions, which range between 70-90% (for advisor-sourced clients) depending on sales volume.

The start up fee is $250, which includes a one-time "onboarding" training---a combination of live/webinar training. There's an additional $100 monthly admin fee for advisors who do NOT record at least $10,000 in monthly commissionable sales.
