I have been with this agency for over 2 years now. I was previously 5 years with another Canadian cruise agency listed on here and I am so much happier! I actually earn an income from travel now. Previously I was earning less than minimum wage, despite selling over $400,000 a year in travel. Our commission structure starts at 80% for 6 months and then reverts to a sliding scale based on monthly sales. The lowest is 60% and we only need to generate $500 in commission each month to move to 70%, and up from there. We have agents all across Canada and have a great support system. I highly recommend Flight Centre Associates.

It has always been a great experience and pleasure being part of Independent by Floght Centre. They are so easy to deal with and very responsive. My business keeps growing and I am happy with all the support I have received in the 6 years I have been part of this team. Highly recommend them. Lee and his team are fantastic!

I have been working in the Travel Industry since 1976 and always worked in a store front office. In 2015 I made the leap to work for FCI as a home based agent and have never looked back. The commission structure is fabulous and the pay is great! Working hard for yourself is very rewarding as you see the size of your pay cheque,not to mention you work for the very best boss-YOU
I love the freedom and constant support if needed. My only regret is that I didnt do this sooner.

I have been in the industry for 11 years and part of Independent by Flight Centre for about 4 years. Even though this is an "independent" role, this company is really good at making you feel like part of a big family. Support is great (and the team will go out of their way for you), and there is a huge amount of knowledge within the company, which people are always more than happy to share. I highly recommend joining Independent by Flight Centre.

I've been in the travel industry for several years, and have been an Independent consultant with Flight Centre for the last three. Although the word "independent" may sound a bit daunting, I'm grateful to continue to grow my travel business with an inclusive company that's flexible and accommodating to my level of knowledge of travel. I'm thankful for their support throughout the peaks and troughs of our ever changing industry.

Independent by Flight Centre comes highly recommended by me.

I was a new to industry agent and interviewed several host agencies when I was interested in getting into the industry. I felt Independent by Flight Centre not only had some of the best commission rates I had found but also provided a lot more training than other agencies as well. Their new to industry fees were very fair and I was able to setup a payment plan that worked with the growth of my business.

Their support team is top notch and the community that they have built is also very supportive. It's very easy to find an answer to a question when you have one which is very important especially for new to industry agents.

When COVID struck they jumped into action and made sure that all their people were good and helped in any way they could. I have already started to build my own team and their programs allow for me as a business owner to grow my business without having to worry about a lot of the problems you'd have to when going it alone but the flexibility to truly be independent as well.

Highly Recommended.

I started with FCI after I left my full-time job in the industry to pursue another career. I wanted to remain in the travel industry part-time, and FCI has been amazing in helping me facilitate running my own part-time travel business. The onboarding process was fantastic - a significant amount of one-to-one time with FCI staff to help me get set up and make sure all my questions/concerns were answered. Since I joined about a year and a half ago, I have had wonderful and enthusiastic support from the FCI team. Support requests are always responded to in a timely fashion, our internal communications system is extremely efficient for getting important news out to us fast (and therefore before our clients :-D), and the support for helping us find innovative ways to market our businesses has exceeded my expectations. I also want to point out the number of times their staff have sat on phone calls exceeding an hour with me to troubleshoot tech issues, counsel me on various aspects of running my business, and just chitchat/catch up all things travel-related. 11/10 would recommend FCI a million times over to anyone looking to start their own travel business, big or small.

I have been with Independent by Flight Centre for over 10 years now and with the Flight Centre Travel Group before that since 2000. It is an excellent company to work for and with. As a host agency, you will have the BEST in support! Along with that even though you work as an Independent Agent you will also join the Flight Centre family. There is a lot of connection through online platforms, webinars and conferences.
As the popularity of working from home increases Independent by Flight Centre will continue to grow and it is a great choice if you are looking for a host agency!

I joined Independent by Flight Centre as a completely green, new-to-industry agent 2.5 years ago and it was the best decision I could have made. With no knowledge of systems or the ins and outs of the industry, I was supported 100% while I went through my training. Now, as an experienced Travel Agent, I am still supported 100%! Independent by Flight Centre is a host agency that is there for their agents in every way possible. During this last year they worked one-on-one with agents to make sure we still felt secure in our careers. As a whole, the support team and agents are one big supportive family. We all lean on one another for advice and there is no sense of competition. It makes no difference if you are new-to-industry, have been in the industry for 30 years, work part time or full time, we are all treated the same. The compensation is very competitive, the fees are reasonable, and as I have mentioned, the support is incredible. Being part of the Flight Centre Travel Group, we as agents are respected by suppliers worldwide. I am thrilled to be part of this team and can't imagine working for any other agency.

I've been in the travel industry for 9 years and with Independent by Flight Centre for 5 years. I love the freedom and flexibility of being a home based agent. Independent by Flight Centre is an amazing host agency to be aligned with! They provide great head office support, commissions are paid on time every month and the team is just a phone call away for assistance. Also, IFC has a lot of agents all across Canada and we are all supportive with each other. There is always another agent who is able to answer questions about a specific destination, system, business strategies, etc. I have enjoyed my time with IFC and know that my business is supported by a great host agency!

Independent by Flight Centre is an amazing host agency that prides itself on its sense of community, support, communication and competitive commission structure. It doesn't matter if your business is big or small, Independent by Flight Centre will allow you to thrive and achieve your goals. As an Independent by Flight Centre Agent myself with a large book of business, I couldn't be happier with the level of support and advocacy I have found with this team. There is a true sense of belonging and there is always someone to turn to for help, no matter how big or small. Proud to be a part of this winning team.
