Q: Why choose Fareconnect.com?
A: We realize that we have numerous competitors in the industry. Fareconnect.com was designed and specializes in training and supporting individuals with no experience in the travel industry. This attention and support have also led to numerous experienced agents joining the company. Our business is built on the success of our agents not on fee’s collected. Therefore, we have the lowest fee’s in the industry and do not charge for additional services.
We also have created a network of local Area Managers along with a Mentorship Program for all new agents. Getting the support from a pier has proven to be very effective and well received from new agents.
Q: Will I receive the support promised?
A: Yes! Fareconnect can only succeed if its agents are successful. We pride ourselves on our support and are continuously updating our support services.
Q: How do I know what my commission is going to be?
A: Commissions for suppliers are typically between 8% - 18%. Once you become a Fareconnect.com agent, your commission from the travel you book will ne between 60% to 80% of those suppliers’ commission.
For Example, you book a trip for a client and its cost that client $4000. Let’s say the commission from the suppliers will be 16%. That amounts to $640. Further to this particular trip, your commission is 60%. This means you will be paid $384 for booking that one trip.
Q: Will I have the option to book both online and with the suppliers directly?
A: Yes! Fareconnect provides you with an on-line booking portal and most suppliers have their own portal to book direct. We recently procured a new Cruise booking engine for agents that simplifies the process for all types of cruise companies. If you prefer to contact the supplier directly, all our suppliers have agent contact lines to speak to an agent.
Q: Will my client’s have an option to book online?
