Travel Edge Unveils New Program To Support ICs

Travel Edge has unveiled a new limited-time signing bonus program for Luxury Travel Advisors in order to support Independent Contractors (IC) during the challenging COVID-19 situation.

It is seeking Luxury Travel Advisors who are looking to join a secure, stable, luxury travel company that believes in the future of travel.

Travel Edge believes that the investment of $50 million would be an important lifeline for the travel community.

Michael Johnson, EVP Travel Edge, commented: “The expertise of travel advisors is at the heart of our travel offering. The future of luxury travel lives with the ICs. We felt it was important to support the bedrock of our industry with an appropriate and much needed investment when it needs it most. We are paying a limited time signing bonus of up to $250K in support of ICs joining the TE family.”

Travel Edge is focused on three pillars to ensure a best-in-class travel home for ICs – Preferred Access, Premium Technology and Passionate Community – empowering Luxury Advisors with the platform they need to take their business to the next level.

Jeff Willner, CEO of Travel Edge, said: “We have the best high-margin contracts, which comes from being one of the largest buyers of luxury cruise, hotel and air in North America. We’ve invested over $50 million in our ADX (Agent Digital Experience) platform with the sole focus of enabling our advisors to easily improve their commission yield and sales efficiency.”

As Johnson sees it: “Everyone in our industry is facing enormous challenges. But we remain a community that depends on each other with the focus and desire to serve our clients.”

Travel Edge’s EVP continued: “We want advisors who are affected by the events of COVID-19 to feel they not only have a safe place to land, but that they are joining an agency that is looking towards the future. In an unstable time for our industry, Travel Edge is positioned for growth. The Travel Edge bonus is an added income opportunity for those who have been greatly affected by all recent events – with 50% immediate payout upon signing.”

And he concluded: “As we define our course into the future, we want to have the best ICs with us. Arming them with the unprecedented access, powerful technology and most importantly adding the fabric of our community. Travel Edge is proud to invest in their Advisors and is dedicated to the continual investment in being North America’s premiere luxury agency.”
