What You Get with World Travel Management
- World Travel Management (WTM) pays Agencies or Independent Contractors
at least 75% of the TOTAL commission received from suppliers for
travel booked by the Agency/IC through WTM. Sub-agents get a split
determined by their agency.
WTM offers two ways to increase your commission split over 75%:
The first is productivity. If you earn at least $1000 in one month,
we automatically increase your commission split to 80% on all
commissions you earn in that month, and in the following month.
We also give you the option of letting your commissions "ride" until
they reach this target level.
The second is by selling preferred suppliers. If you join our
consortium's "Engagement" marketing program and follow a few simple
rules, we will grant you an 80% commission split on our consortium's
preferred suppliers regardless of your monthly earnings. We also
have a small number of preferred suppliers for which we automatically
pay 80% for all agents.
World Travel Management encourages its Agencies or Independent
Contractors to charge the professional service fees they deserve.
These fees are treated as commissions, and are subject to the appropriate
Commissions are claimed on monthly commission logs after the final
payment has been made. Commissions are paid to the Agency/IC by
World Travel Management once WTM has received the commission
regardless of date of travel. We do not require travel to be
completed. Once we get paid, you get paid. Commissions held in
our trust account for certain California clients will be paid only
after travel documents are delivered, to comply with California
- Reservations System and On-line Booking
- World Travel Management offers the very latest in e-business
technology with Amadeus Selling Platform.
In addition, web-based booking engines for over a hundred suppliers
are available though the agent-only section of our web site. This
is important as many operators give extra commissions for computer
For agents who choose not to use Amadeus or who prefer a web-based
interface, we offer WTM FarePortal, an easy to use, web-based booking
engine for NET fares for air, car and hotel.
As a Vacation.com agency we also offer the complete EZGuider system,
a one-stop program for booking air (EZAir), tours (EZTour) and
cruises (EZCruise/Amadeus Cruise).
Whichever booking method you prefer, the systems are coordinated
to insure you receive the best available commission.
However you book your travel, we offer web-based
online invoice request forms. Our commission log forms are also
web-based to help our agents reduce paperwork and fax charges,
and to reduce transcription errors.
- We use the internet whenever possible (email, web services, bulletin
board, etc) but we also rely on our toll-free number, fax machine, express
delivery services, and the USPS. We can either email or
fax you your confirmations as soon as they are received.
- World Travel Management is committed to helping Agencies and
Independent Contractors to build their businesses. Booking assistance
is available through our headquarters. WTM offers periodic online seminars
featuring preferred supplier vendors and general training.
All agents are encouraged to continue their professional
development through fam trips, destination specialist, and certification
programs. AgentNet, TA University, and The Travel Institute are
among those we recommend who offer such programs in addition to the
many vendors who offer webinars.
Through email and the agent-only section of the worldtravelmgt.com
website, agents are kept informed of supplier updates, upcoming
events and seminars, fam trips, and industry news. There are also
interactive forums for discussion and support. On our web site we offer
booking forms, reference materials, and useful templates. In
addition, help is available with destination research, supplier
information (or problems), and brochure requests.
An active bulletin board is provided
for agents to exchange information, explore problem areas, post
requests, and share business and computer tips. For example, an
agent might ask for help finding a particular hotel or for opinions
on a particular cruiseline or ship. He/she could coordinate bookings
with other agents to achieve group minimums for extra perks and
commissions, or find passengers to fill an existing group. This
is your group and communication system - use it for whatever
you like as long as the content is relevant to the travel business.
