About True Vacation Travel

True Vacation Travel is most established independent travel agency in Redding, California. We are members of Travel Leaders Network (formerly Vacation.com) which is the largest group of independent travel agencies nationwide, consisting of over 8000 retail locations. Our local office has generated more than $28 million dollars in sales since we began keeping computerized records in 2004.

Why work with us?
Community: You will benefit from sharing ideas in our exclusive, online forum, as well as at regular networking events and conventions with dozens of other agents. Your headquarters team is made up of seasoned travel industry experts.

National Accolades: Beyond our owner being nationally recognized, our office has been the recipient of many national awards from our affiliated organizations, as well as specific suppliers. Most recently our 25 Year Award, and our owner was twice invited to GTM West as one of the TOP 100 travel agents in North America (press release). Also, our parent franchiser company, Travel Leaders Group, represents more than 33% of travel agencies in North America alone. A perennial “top 10” member of Travel Weekly’s “Power List,” listing the world’s biggest travel companies.

Integrated Marketing: Our marketing team does a lot of the “heavy lifting” for you. We design, print, customize, mail and email regular promotions to your clients, and even provide you with a personalized microsite. Keeping your business in front of your clients in a tasteful, targeted way, so you’re top-of-mind, without being in the way, helps ensure your clients remember to contact you when they have travel needs. In 2014 we added cohort data to our mailings so postal mailings are even better targeted – what that means is your clients who are families with children receive a cruise postcard with photos of families; and your retired clients also receive the same promotion but with photos and cruise detestation better aligned with their demographic. Going beyond just bulk mailing, we’re doing targeted marketing.

Technology: All of your customer relationship management, booking tools and accounting will take place in one place, thanks to our proprietary software, AgentMate. This tool is available at no cost to you, and many agents comment on how much easier it is to use compared to Client Base Online (CBO). Our office also supplements that with additional technology tools to help round out your service offering.

Training & Support: We provide you with a week of A-Z training. Everything from cruise industry basics to how to close your first sale. About 500 hours of self-paced training to start with. We follow it up with regular conference calls with you, along with ongoing webinars on a variety of topics. Our support team is available to you by phone and email to answer any questions you may have. We also have programs available to offload up to 90% of the back-office work for each booking!
Growing Market: 11 new ships were introduced in 2013, with 13 more in 2014, and that doesn’t include all the new European river cruise ships! 91% of all cruisers come from North America — a big opportunity for you. Additionally, our industry is entering a stage of resurgence, with customers learning that the internet is making travel harder instead of simpler — and you can come in as a professional consultant to help them navigate the many choices available to them. Our office has new clients coming in daily looking for salvation from the internet for their cruise planning needs.

Commissions: With True Vacation Travel, you start out earning cruise commissions that are the among the highest in the industry. You can also earn money selling hotel, resort stays, car rentals, airlines and more. We pay some of the highest commission splits in the home based market with zero annual fees for experienced agents. In 2016 we introduced two brand new commission programs which enable you to earn more commission, and receive it faster than ever!

Our program is for individuals who are interested about running their own business and finding their own success while leveraging our knowledge, experience and tools to help accelerate you beyond if you were to go at it alone. Over 90% of small business fail when started independently, but when you’re part of a franchise or other structured program, those numbers reverse into over a 90% success rate. And we are here to help you succeed, because together we will win.

With that said, if you’re simply looking for a hobby, something to toy around with, or are trying to “cash in” on the perks of the travel industry – our program might not be for you. We are exclusively looking for people who have a passion for people, travel and business. You need to be a self-starter, with a professional mindset. We are looking for individuals who will set goals and do what it takes to reach them.
