Here’s why agents are switching to home-based

Are you tired of commuting to work every day? Want to be able to work wherever it’s convenient for you? We’ve got just the thing.

Become a mobile travel agent!

Being a mobile travel agent means that you can choose where you work from, whether at home or where ever your customers are, and it comes with a ton of benefits; flexibility, better earning potential, and more time to give your clients the best attention and service possible.

And don’t think that you’ll be alone being mobile or home-based – if you’re a member of a company like MTA – Mobile Travel Agents, they’ll offer all the support you could ever need and more! They reckon it’s the best in the industry.

MTA pioneered the mobile or “home-based” model in Australia (it’s in the name – Mobile Travel Agents) and continue to lead the industry – providing great support, continuously enhancing their in-house system and negotiating the best products and rates to the benefit of their members (which add up to nearly 400 nationally, BTW).

MTA has an experienced management team who drive innovation to ensure members have the best tools and expertise to care for their customers. As a result, MTA is becoming more and more appealing to both agents and clients every day. They know that experience counts and with hundreds of years of travel experience between them, you know you’re in safe hands.

In fact, industry recognition says it all – and MTA recently won an award for the Best Travel Broker Network at the 2018 National Travel Industry Awards!

And industry-recognised leading support is just one of the perks of being part of MTA, no matter where you choose to work from. Did we mention with MTA you can go on a holiday or famil and still earn your full commission? Unlike other home-based agent models, the MTA business model is completely transparent and offers a 70/30 commission split with no additional cost for necessities like ticketing, marketing support, IT support or training. Sounds pretty good, right?

Not only is there ticketing and product assistance, but the company also includes everything, from in-house graphic design and social media training to BAS preparation and business insurances.

With the 24/7, experienced, support from head office, it means you can travel around the world without worrying about your clients; they’re in safe hands. MTA does not have any consumer clients and therefore are never in competition with you!

Plus, all point-of-sale commissions are passed on to MTA Members and the company continually negotiates with suppliers to ensure maximum commissions. And if that’s not a damn good reason to sign up, we don’t know what is.
