About Gifted Travel Network

At Gifted Travel Network we are proud to be different than most other host agencies! Our goal is to provide an environment where travel entrepreneurs thrive. You have your own brand, your own clients and serve your ideal client! We aren’t here to put lots of rules and restrictions in your path, but to provide guidance to help you achieve your goals.

 

We’re Here for Experienced Agents

If you are an experienced agent who loves working in the travel business and wants to achieve even greater success, we are here for you! We have some of the most generous hosting plans in the industry and provide cutting-edge content on marketing and client attraction. We are big enough to offer top level commissions from suppliers, yet small enough to really know you.  And we do get to know you! Our agency community readily shares information and supports one another. And everyone benefits from content provided by our amazing business coaches.

 

And for Those Just Getting into the Industry 

If you love travel and are exploring options for starting a career as a travel agent, you need our Travel MBA program. The Travel Marketing & Business Academy (MBA) is different from every other travel agent training program out there because you receive extensive guidance and coaching in addition to our recently updated e-learning modules. We teach you how to build your own business in a way that is profitable and rewarding. We don’t focus on product education, but on business and marketing theories. And when you have questions, there is an experienced mentor who will help you. This isn’t an agent that helps out when she has time, but a true mentor and coach dedicated to the program and your success. It is really easy to start a travel business but succeeding is much harder. We will show you the way to build a business that allows you to live the laptop lifestyle.  Learn more at www.GetYourTravelMBA.com
