About The Travel Agent Next Door

The Travel Agent Next Door is based in Canada. They offer three main programs: 1) Supporting Store Front locations 2) Supporting Independent Contractors 3) Training new agents to become Travel Professionals.

Travel agents working with The Travel Agent Next Door can expect to earn between 65% - 100% of the commission. TTAND has a tiered approach to supplier's commissions, a little different than most host agencies. They have 3 supplier levels: Preferred, Approved and all others. For example, when selling Preferred suppliers you will earn at a minimum of 85% - 100% commission. Depending on the program and what you produce, there could be no annual fees up to an annual fee of $499, and monthly fees range from $19-$69/month. The contract term is 1 years.

If you want to BECOME a travel agent (so have never been a travel agent before), they offer 3 programs: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Independent contractors in this program earn between 50-95% commission and for those in the Silver and Bronze program up to 300 client leads are included. The contract term is two years. The Travel Agent Next Door program fees for new agents (which are paid prior to starting the program) begin at $1,699 for the bronze plan and jump to $7,499 and $12,499 for the silver and gold plan, respectively. Payment plans are available (12-months and includes some interest).
