Commissions Splits, Planning Fees, and Host Agencies

Commission Splits

The hardest part of understanding the industry is split models. We keep ours simple. There are two thresholds. Threshold 1 is paid out at a generous split percentage. Threshold 2 is paid out at a higher split percentage. Two ladder rungs. That's it. We want you to focus on your business and not figuring out where you are on an ever-changing model. We also do not believe in charging surprise fees monthly or year over year.

Planning Fees

At Steuber Travel Group, you will be able to charge fees in accordance with our model and keep 100% of your planning fees. They will be paid out directly to your account, not once a month with commissions. We structure our model to give you the flexibility to charge your clients what is appropriate for the complexity of their trip design.

What qualities do I need to be successful?

Established Network: The most successful advisors tap into their community and network to plan travel at a 4 and 5 star level.

Attention to Detail: Attention to detail is of the utmost importance. There is no margin for error. Names must be spelled correctly, hotels need to be reconfirmed, etc. Advisors who do not have attention to detail will not be the right fit for our agency.

Experience with customer service: We strive to demonstrate a high level of value to our clients. We are seeking advisors dedicated to the client experience from start to finish.

Initiative: This industry moves quickly. We must anticipate our clients needs and proactively address them. Advisors who are proactive and take initiative will be the most successful.

Business Minded: We are seeking advisors who are passionate about building their businesses in a way that best suits their lifestyles. However, advisors purely interested in discounted travel or planning travel for their immediate family will not be the right fit for our agency.

Kindness: We want to build a team of power-house, go-getting, supporting, traveler advisors. Therefore, kindness and compassion are crucial to this team.
