In order to best serve the needs of our web visitors, our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are compiled in cooperation with the “National Notary Association.”


You will offer the same (or lower) travel prices anywhere, which studies show that they will buy from someone they know, or reached out to them every time! The simplicity of our business is worth it alone, but this major advantage most certainly doesn’t stop there!

General Questions & Answers

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?


We offer each of our Independent Business Owners (IBOs) their own professional and personalized website. Yes, we believe your very own website as studies prove can be your best salesperson. We believe all of our IBOs gain a huge competitive advantage over their competitors. 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 what type of business today does not have their very own website involving our business opportunity at $29.99.

IBO

Our Independent Business Owners (IBOs) simply produce more; and in turn have a more successful business with this proven program that has been used successfully in a different form within the travel industry with a mytravelgrab.com acquired company for over a decade! The intent of the program is to also allow IBOs to familiarize themselves with the vacation destinations to better market and sell our product suppliers. Note: Airfare may not be applicable for use of Vacation Credits unless a travel supplier does include airfare in with their travel package, which is usually the case.

Does my travelgrab.com have any hidden costs of fees?

Absolutely not! This is our promise to you! 

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?


It is because of our shear combined 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. A travel agency (usually brick-and-mortar) as a perfect example has 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 the example of our travel agency. Some just want to sell travel and not build their agency. However, if a new IBO wants to build their travel company out of their home just like a brick and mortar travel agency, they can receive the very same commission structure. We constantly work to improve our company so that we can continue to pass the highest commission levels on to our IBOs. Travel is a big ticket item, therefore encompassing big commissions! Please see below for our commission outline.

I moved over to mytravelgrab.com from another host I was with for a number of reasons, my personal income shot up the very first month with mytravelgrab.com. 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?


We hear this all the time. 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 are also the only travel company endorsed by “The Small Business Journal” as one of the top 5 business opportunities in the country today. Another reason could be like with others; mytravelgrab.com doesn’t have any hidden costs or fees.

Can I personally compete on airfare that I know is so competitive?


Absolutely! We guarantee the lowest airfare prices available, and back it with our “Meet or Beat Pricing Policy.” It very important that you never have your client leaves your custom website to obtain airfare elsewhere. With an invention called Cookies, many have found with other travel companies; when they send them elsewhere for airfare, that their customer never comes back. Finally, we also know if you get the air you will also get the land that pays commissions, where airfare requires that you get paid by Service Fees in accordance with our Compensation Program.

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


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.


What type of business owner partner is mytravelgrab.com looking for?


mytravelgrab.com is going through explosive growth and in turn opportunity. We are looking for travel agencies, agents, or someone that is simply looking to earn extra money, or even simply to take a vacation each year that they ordinarily could not afford with our “Vacation Credit Bonus Program.” We have training webinars and all agents have access to our “Travel Training University” to expand their travel industry knowledge.


I own a brick and mortar travel agency in a retail location. Do I have to change the way I am currently doing business?


The only thing that will change is your agency number you give to suppliers which will happen as soon as you receive your personalized website from us. All payments will go through our wholesale travel Company. Your clients' documents will be sent to you directly by the supplier or by us.


Will I keep ownership of my clients?


Absolutely! We take this many steps further by securing and protecting your client list.  Finally, you are independent and self-employed; your client list is yours.


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


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 technology 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. Having a CTC since 2000 in travel is meaningless as previously noted in the report: “History of Travel Retailing From an Educational Perspective.”

 

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 after you pay our tuition one-time price of $399, so you can stay on top of all the changes that will naturally occur in the travel industry year after year at no cost.

A home-based travel agent in 2017 must possess relationship-building skills along with knowledge of the Internet and e-commerce.
