About Global Travel International
Most people love to travel and go on cruises. Being a travel agent is fun and can be a home-based business that you can grow part-time or full-time at your own pace. But to be truly competitive you need to be certified, and you need to have a brand behind you. Why not choose an internationally recognized name where you can qualify for massive discounts on your own travel expenses, and learn from the best?
Creating a winning business enterprise for yourself is about positioning yourself properly. If you want to become a travel agent, you can do it the difficult way by trying to do it on your own. Or you can tap into our quite affordable network and be provided with both the training and the tools to be your own boss!
Values & History
For a decade we have helped lots of people from all walks of life, or travel agents who came from established agencies that collapsed but who still wanted to remain agents, fulfill their aspirations. By being a completely independent operator of your own travel agency business, but still being part of a recognizable brand and getting all the perks of a franchised business, you put yourself in a great situation.
And that is what we value. Facilitating dream vacations for our clients while facilitating dream careers for our agents. We do this in a lot of ways – helping you create the travel agency you've always wanted. Whether you plan to do it solo or build a small agency with other colleagues, you can succeed. We want to help you do it.
If we were not actually helping travel agents succeed at building their own private agencies, we would not be reputable enough to achieve the massive perks that all of our agents get. Discounted rates on hotels, airfare, cruises, and all manner of packages. It's important for travel agents to actually travel themselves in order to see the sights that they are selling to their customers. We make the experience affordable.
That we have so many business arrangements with partners around the world demonstrates how much we have been able to grow Global Travel International. Our success as a business operation relies on the success of our many agents out in the field. We have literally trained and assisted tens of thousands of agents. How hard each agent works to make their own agency a huge success is up to them. But because we have helped such a large number to believe in themselves, have the right training and mindset, we have seen lots of success both for ourselves, and more importantly, for our franchisees.
