Join our Team

The Opportunity

 Are you an entrepreneur who is interested in using your travel knowledge and experience to start your own business?  Wishing Star Concierge is actively looking for independent contractors to join our team. This could be your chance to embark on a new career, earn some money on the side, or find a job that you really enjoy! We are a CLIA Member Agency, IATAN Accredited, and ARC Accredited.  Our agency is part of the Travel Leaders Network Consortia. 

Requirements

If you are new to the industry, we want to be up front in the fact that becoming an independent contractor travel agent is not an easy “get rich quick” scheme.  You are starting your own business through our branding and travel network.  It requires great customer service skills, hard work, advertising, and some investment on your part.  This is not a MLM opportunity.  We are a stand alone, full service agency  


Building your own business takes time.  As your client list and referrals grow, so does your commission.  Travel Agents are compensated monthly after their client’s travel is complete, so you may be putting work in for a travel itinerary that is scheduled months from now.  You usually start out slow and build your clientele over time.  Helping your clients to make their vacation wishes come true is very rewarding! 

Training

We will help support you with individual supplier training and assistance with booking great destinations.  We provide you with booking tools to help you create magical family memories for clients.  As an independent contractor you will have the flexibility to run your business the way you want to.  You set your own hours, generate your clients, and provide them with excellent customer service.  You will receive a percentage of the commission earned from your bookings.  As your sales grow, you will have the opportunity to apply for travel agent credentials (CLIA and/or IATA) through the agency.
