As a way to ensure I could retire when I wanted in June 2028, I decided to look for ways to start a parttime business that I could grow so that it would supplement my retirement – preferably while doing what my wife and I love to do most: traveling! The thought crossed my mind that, if I became a travel agent, I could make money even in the middle of the ocean. I began researching options for training, which then lead me to a listing of trusted host companies. As I investigated those companies, Dream Vacations rose to the top of my list. The monthly fee was very reasonable and included Errors and Omissions insurance – which seemed like a great and important deal to me. The further I looked at Dream Vacations, the more quality I saw – from the extensive training center, their business practices and support systems, ability to book just about any kind of travel one could imagine, regional and national trainings, etc., etc. In addition to all these resources offered by Dream Vacations, the franchise owner to whom I was assigned, Ellen Overcast, has been a terrific source of support and information. She has been able to answer most of my questions, and for the few things she did not know she knew whom within Dream Vacations or their parent company, World Travel Holdings, to go for answers; even contacting business development managers with suppliers for answers, too. I could not have chosen a better mentor! I would not want to start a business with such vast offerings without a strong and distributed support system. While I had helped some friends and family plan their travel on my own, I did not have the negotiating power to offer promotional pricing and other incentives that we have through Dream Vacations and World Travel Holdings. To have these companies and my mentor, Ellen, as partners – who succeed when I succeed – I truly believe I can develop this venture as deep and wide as I dream to go. I would strongly recommend you investigate all that World Travel Holdings provides through Dream Vacations. I believe you will find what I did – a well-organized, deeply resourced, highly motivated group of individuals all under this huge umbrella who are committed to seeing you succeed in any travel venture you wish to take on. I dare you to take the plunge! As the world begins traveling again, there are millions of people eager to find trusted guides who will partner with them as they explore the globe. Using Dream Vacations as your host agency will be the best business decision you will ever make!

I started this process with Dream Vacations after vetting other companies. I found that they provided wonderful support and offered veteran discounts. After starting the process and seeing the success, we opted to purchase our own franchise. Looking forward to our future with them. You can’t go wrong with their unparalleled level of support. A+++

I have been an associate for less than one year. My host agent is very good about helping with the things I cant find or understand. She is super encouraging. I love being part of a Host agency because I dont have to meet quotas. I am pretty motivated to do what I need to do to grow my business and she is there to assist me.

I returned from Israel and Greece in August of 2022, and asked myself... "How big do you dare to dream?" I am a single mom staring a future college student in the face every morning over coffee and a long commute into the city. How am I going to do it all? I started researching jobs in travel. After vetting many companies, I really clicked with Dream Vacations. The process to connect with a Franchise Owner as a mentor was smooth, honest, and supportive. She is AMAZING, available, and is willing to teach me how to be successful. What I wasn't prepared for is how unbelievable all the Dream Vacation resources are to train. The training materials are easy to comprehend and so deep. I immediately realized this is a journey and not a sprint to the bank with a commission check. Once I started my self-paced training, I was hooked because I could sense my own potential. I realized how lucky I am to have found my second career. I work part time as a travel advisor and have spent the last 10 months learning, developing my business plan, doing trade and bridal shows, talking to as many people as I can about my business. It's not the easiest thing I have ever tried to master but I wake up every morning excited and committed to my future as a Dream Vacations Travel Advisor. If you are looking for something bigger than a paycheck, a supportive network of peers, a company with training resources to make you successful, website tools, marketing tools, endless opportunities to connect with other advisors and leaders in the travel industry, you have found it in Dream Vacations.
Can I just say I don't have a "bucket list" anymore. The "bucket list" has a finality attached to it and feels like a dream list that some people only wish they could do once. I now have a "Live Life List"... and man is it long! My commission checks are covering the cost of my adventures for now. I plan to flip my life completely once my son is out of college. So now I learn, book, repeat. Thanks Dream Vacations!

I am a new Cruiseone/Dream Vacations Advisor!! I started in December of 2022. My wife encouraged me to become a travel advisor. Her and I both love to travel and I love learning about all the different places to go.
I just want to experience life and being a Travel Advisor for Cruiseone/Dream Vacations gives me that ability!
I plan on doing this for a long time!! I want to help people make memories with their family and friends!!
I feel this company continues to give me the tools that I need to be successful. I have a great mentor in Bob Haupt. He has over 25 years of experience and he is willing to teach. I love this company and being apart of a great group of individuals that have the same passion as I do!!

As a teacher wanted a way to supplement my income as well as experience the travel at a discounted way, plus I enjoy connecting individuals with new travel experiences. Dream Vacations Advisor program has been absolutely perfect for me and has met all of my expectations and more. My Host Owner Agency Tonya Wogoman has been a gracious host and is available to assist me any way that she can. The training and resources that Dream Vacation provides makes being an Advisor FUN!!

I feel so fortunate to be a part of Dream Vacations and all the training and tools provided to new associates. I feel so supported to succeed especially with the new and improved websites, Uplift, marketing ideas, Constant Contact & and other business building tools. You must be a self starter because there is a lot of training, learning about destinations, and getting credentials for all the vetted suppliers.

I have lived and worked on 3 different continents and travel has always been near and dear to my heart. While I work part-time from home, having an option to supplement my income working for Dream Vacations (with the goal of going full time) was an opportunity too good to be true. It is a warm, supportive and highly motivated company. From my first conversation with Terri in Recruitment to my eventual ‘home’ with my franchise owner Fawn Brickman at Driftless Travel, it was a seamless and effortless journey.

The required onboard training gives you the basic tools needed to get up and running and you can build on this with a library of resources for additional training and development and support from a knowledgeable franchise owner.

I would not hesitate in making the leap with Dream Vacations if a career in travel is right for you!

I am a stay-at-home mom with 3 kids. I've always wanted to start my own business. I have been planning my family's vacations and camping trips with friends and family for years. I get very excited when planning a vacation. Recently, we planned to go on a cruise and booked our cruise with one of the Dream Vacations' advisor. I was able to make a group of 8 families within a week and everyone told me I could be a good travel advisor.

That's when I started researching about how to become a Travel Advisor and Dream Vacation Travel Advisor Associate program provided me this opportunity. Right now, I am an Associate under Susan Peyer. She is not only my franchise owner but also a wonderful mentor helping me with my queries and motivating me at every step. Dream Vacations is a great platform if you want to be a travel advisor. Great training that is very easy to understand. 

Good luck to all the future travel advisors out there!

I have always loved cruising and had thought of becoming a Travel Advisor for years. I researched so many host agencies and there was always something that just didn't sit right with me until I found Dream Vacations. My first contact was with Terri, the Recruitment Sales Manager. She answered every question I had (and there were many!) and showed me that my dream of helping people see the value and fun in cruising was within reach. After a very simple signup process I was paired with a franchise, Sea 2 Shore Vacations. I can not express enough how lucky I am to have been paired with Yolande and Tammy, the owners of Sea 2 Shore Vacations. After my very first call with them I felt like I was part of a family. They are so passionate about what they do and that passion is contagious!
The initial training process was simple and I began selling cruises on a part time basis in April 2022. The support offered is there from Dream Vacations and Sea 2 Shore Vacations regardless of how much or little I am selling (I have booked 12 cruises in less than a year.).
The are so many training opportunities and their marketing support is amazing.
I am so glad I finally made the leap and joined Dream Vacations!

I made the decision in early 2022 to turn my love of travel into a career, but made the very common mistake of joining an agency that became an obvious MLM organization. While searching for another home-based travel agency I stumbled upon Dream Vacations (World Travel Holdings) and learned that they were offering advisor positions. I sat through the initial webinar, and by the time that webinar was over, I knew that I had found my new travel agency home. I set up an interview with a recruited, spoke with her, she was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer each and every one of the questions that I had. I made my initial payment (more on this soon) and couldn't wait for my background check to be completed so I could get started on my training and start working with my new travel family!

I don't use the word family lightly, but that is exactly what my franchise owners have developed here. We cheer for each other's successes, and we offer whatever help we can to each other when someone reaches out for advice. I am beyond happy with World Travel Holdings, Dream Vacations, and Sea2Shore Vacation. Yolande and Tammy are franchise owners that I hope to emulate whenever I decide to enter the world of franchise owners. They are extraordinarily helpful, informative, motivating, patient, and kind.

I mentioned the fee that I paid when joining up as an advisor with Dream Vacations. NO ONE should feel any trepidation about this monthly fee. With the MLM organization, I was paying almost twice what I am paying with Dream Vacations, and get FAR more. A working website, with actual, real, information, a professional email address, trainings both with Dream Vacations as well as through the vendors directly, a full scale booking engine to enter bookings, do research, set reminders, invoice, and much more. These are just a sample of what you get for your monthly fee and I assure you, it is incredibly worth it!

I hope this review was helpful, if you are interested in being a home-based travel advisor, I highly recommend Dream Vacations.
