Savenio restructures commission model

Independent luxury travel agency network Savenio has announced a restructure of its independent contractor model to better reflect the marketplace and the future of the industry post-COVID.

In realigning the Savenio model, network members will now be able to choose an affiliation option that best suits their business – either an 85 per cent, 95 per cent or 100 per cent commission on their work.

“Savenio has supported the success of its advisors for over the past seven years by offering a truly independent model allowing them to make the right choices for their business, from the itineraries they create for their clients to the service model they choose from,” managing director David Brandon said.

“We are the only agency who really values independence and recognises our affiliates as individual businesses connected through the Savenio brand.

“We support our affiliates to sell product that matches their clients’ travel desires, and that means they have the ability to direct their own business in the way they want.

“The group buying power of Savenio also gives our affiliates great benefits for them and their clients, adding another layer to their business success.”

Brandon said while the past 12 months had been extremely challenging for the entire travel industry, many advisors continued to work hard in helping their clients to have fantastic travel experiences domestically.

“Once our international borders reopen, we will see a massive realignment of our industry, with fewer advisors and a demand for a higher level of client service, which Savenio advisors will be perfectly positioned to support.

“Now is the time for advisors to realign with the agencies they believe will be the best for their future business and the demands of a new travel marketplace, and Savenio will be there to support them.”
