Frequently Asked Questions

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?
A
: Yes!  All Agents who join Fareconnect are setup with there own agent online booking portal.  Agents can direct clients to their site to search for specials or to book directly themselves.  After they book, you get an email informing you, so you can then follow up with them. Our agent portal sites offer all the same rates that are available on competitor websites so you can be assured that your clients are getting the best price at that time.

Q: How soon before I start seeing the benefits of being a home-based agent? Like Fam trips and discounts?
A
: You can start applying the discount of your personal travel immediately.  Fareconnect.com has unlimited quota’s on personal travel for you and your family.  Fam trips vary from supplier to supplier and your trainer will better explain this to you.  Allot of suppliers offer agent rates plus a companion for shoulder season travel. Fareconnect 100 percent supports all agents in travelling as we believe the best training is to experience. 

Q: Are you a photo ID card mill or Multi-Level Marketing Firm?
A
: Absolutely not! We will help you apply for the coveted IATAN and/or CLIA photo ID card when qualified. 

Q: Do you have quotas?
A
: Absolutely not!  Fareconnect.com believes that everyone is different and become travel agents for various reasons.  Some do it full time to make an income while others do it to supplement them traveling the world. What ever your reason, we are here to support you.

Agent Perks, Rewards & Incentives

Fareconnect.com believes in ensuring that agents receive the numerous perks offered by our suppliers. During our training session we will help set you up in the most popular ones and show you where to go if you desire to find more programs. 

Many suppliers offer you cash incentives on bookings (ex. $20 per passenger cash bonus) that is yours to keep. There are also suppliers who have agent rewards programs (ex. earn points with each booking you make that can be redeemed for items like room nights at a resort. 

Travel suppliers are very competitive with each other and almost every large supplier always has an incentive running. You get to reap the benefits and choose where to make your bookings to take advantage of these fun offers! 

As a part of the Fareconnect family, you are free to book your own personal travel arrangements and receive 100% of the commission. 

This amounts to HUGE travel savings!
