General Questions & Answers

 

Q: Do you offer me my own personalized website, or do you offer a link for my customers to hook into that I direct them to like other home-based opportunities?

A: We offer each of our Independent Business Owners (IBOs) their own professional and personalized website. We feel this is critically important when it comes to directing your customers to your own custom website from a sales perspective alone. However, there are many other benefits for our home-based travel representatives (IBOs). Please remember this is your business, and why type of business today does not have their own website.

 

Q: Why are you the only travel company that I am aware that pays even close to 100% commission? How does mytravelgrab.com make any money?

A: It is because of our shear volume in association with our sister companies. Many people don’t know that every time travel is booked it produces a segment. The industry also pays money to wholesale travel companies like ours on segments produced. It is also important when a travel agency joins us (usually brick of mortar in a retail location) that they can earn 100% of the commissions (Base Commissions, Team, and Travel Credits) since this is what they are accustomed to earning, despite the fact they say we were able to get them higher commissions. They have extra costs like overhead, employees, and independent travel sales representatives under their umbrella etc. to pay. Finally, some choose not to build a business beyond their own personal travel sales, so they don’t additionally receive Team commission part of mytravelgrab.com commission plan as with a travel agency. We constantly work to improve our company so that we can continue to pass the higher commission levels on to our IBOs.

Q: I moved over to MTG from another host I was with for a number of reasons. In my search for a new home-based travel company, where I might add that I looked at many others simply because I had to get it right this time, I found your website in relationship to all the others I viewed were much more informative. My question is why does your opportunity; in particular, offer so much informative information on your website?


: A: We believe for a number of reasons. Yes, we provide on our website more than enough information for someone to make an educated decision as why they should join mytravelgrab.com over any and all others.There is no other opportunity out there that comes close to our opportunity throughout, and our so-called competition knows this. Period! We think another reason could be like with others; mytravelgrab.com doesn’t have any hidden costs or fees.

Q: Do you have a business plan that explains the internal specifics of your business Opportunity?

A: Yes, you can view our white paper entitled “Corporate Overview” on our website under our “Corporate Governance” section. This overview we highly suggest you read, and in itself will give you a lot of information on mytravelgrab.com. We also have strictly a Promotional Video presentation of the mytravelgrab.com opportunity that is also available on the mytravelgrab.com website.

Q: Will I be able to compete with Internet and other travel companies?


A: Yes. We hear about our competitive advantages from our home-based agents all the time. Technology and the Internet have made selling travel from home easy and profitable. Our prices are competitive, but we encourage our home-based agents to sell themselves and their service as opposed to price. You will have some clients that prefer to book their own travel online. They can now do that from “your” website and you get paid every time they book travel. Finally, we back this with our “Meet or Beat” pricing policy. The facts remain, if you can offer the same pricing (or less) than Internet travel providers, they will buy from someone they know or reached out to them every single time.

Simply put, we uncover insights to drive sales into your business. Also, with recent technologic advances and call center support, booking travel has never been easier! Knowledge of the CRS/GDS, ticketing and faring, orthodox travel agency operations and such are simply irrelevant.

We offer over a minimum of 30-online webinars (with special guest’s speakers) annually alone. There is no expiration on the training year after year with zero hidden costs or additional fees so you can stay on top of all the changes that will naturally occur in the travel industry year after year.

Our University focuses on more about building your business rather than the others who train you how to physically make a booking, which we feel is very old school with the simplicity of our technology along with the fact that we additionally offer call center and online support. This is exactly why mytravelgrab.com refers to our home-based agents (IBOs) as travel marketers rather than travel agents. A home-based travel agent in 2017 must possess relationship-building skills along with knowledge of the Internet and e-commerce.

 

Our goal is to empower students to achieve their aspirations through flexible, convenient, affordable, and highly relevant travel and travel related educational programs.

A: Once they are established in our system as your client, you will receive the residual income on the client for as long as you are an active IBO in good standing with mytravelgrab.com. The exception to this would be if the client requested another IBO to handle their travel requirements.

“Monthly Qualifications” There are no monthly qualifications for sales for receiving commissions.

“Monthly Fees” There is a Monthly License Fee of $29.99. The first month’s fee will be due at sign-up and this amount will automatically be charged to your ACH account on the same date each month. There are no other annual or hidden fees.

“IBO Direct Commissions” means that MTG will pay you with bonuses (Cash-70%) PLUS an additional 10% of that amount in Travel Credits and extra bonuses on all Commissionable sales enabling them to earn over 80% of the commissions as follows:

“Commissions” means that portion of the MTG Commission that is shared with the IBO.

“Commissionable Sales” are defined as all sales on which MTG pays commission to the IBOs. This excludes most airline tickets (see Service Fees below), taxes, port fees, and other non-commissionable items.

“Gross Vacation Margins (GVM).” The total amount of the (gross) sales of any vacation product less the direct costs related to that vacation sale.

“Travel Credits” are an incentive for our IBOs to travel with our travel partners using the MTG Travel Credit Bonus program. When any new IBO is accepted by MTG and completes the Training Questionnaire, he receives $50 in Travel Credits deposited directly into his “Travel Credit Bank Account.” Then every time an IBO earns an IBO Commission, either by direct commission or bonus commission, an additional 10% of that commission is a bonus that is paid into the IBOs Travel Credit Bank Account. (Please see “Terms and conditions” involving the usage of Travel Credits)

“Travel Credit Bank Account” means that Travel Credits will be deposited into an IBOs personal Travel Credit Bank Account. This account can only be used by IBOs who are in good standing and current on all fees for at least 90 days.

“Service Fees” means that MTG will share net Service Fee Income with the IBOs. This “Independent Business Owner Terms and Conditions” lists herein the MTG Net Service Fees to be earned in Dollars where the Independent Business Owner (IBO) will earn 100% of these fees. These earnings are not eligible for additional Travel Credits.

“Super Bonus” means that MTG will pay an additional 10% as outlined in the “MTG Compensation Program.” These bonuses are paid and based on volume levels in commissions made solely through the mytravelgrab.com booking engine by an individual IBO.

“Bookings vs. IBO Commissions” means that MTG earns MTG Commissions and pays the IBO commissions and Travel Credits on tour and travel product sales. When a booking is made, money changes hand from the traveler to the travel provider. In most cases, the actual commission will not be paid until the travel product is used, which may be months later. So it is important to understand that an IBO will be paid when MTG is paid and when travel is completed. Please note: there are situations where MTG is paid its commission before the actual travel date.
