Make traveling the world a full-time, six or even seven-figure career. No Prior experience is required.

Welcome to LuxRally Travel's Agent Training

One of the main draws of being a Travel Agent is your ability to make commissions from something everyone already does; everyone travels. We access special discounts and benefits unavailable to the general public or Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) like Expedia.

This is a commission-only based 1099 contract. While we will be here to train you and give pointers, you should treat this like starting your own business. You will be responsible for winning your clients and managing your own time. We recommend doing this part-time until you've created a large enough client base to comfortably replace your current job's salary. Most of our agents have started down this path and have become full-time.

  • Do I need experience to become a luxury travel advisor with LuxRally Travel?
    No, we do not hire prior travel agents. Our methods and philosophies are often opposite to that of traditional travel agencies. For example, we do not believe in charging service fees, and this is something experienced agents cannot wrap their heads around. Additionally, while we enjoy free travel occasionally, we do not believe in FAM culture. FAMs are free group trips for travel agents and often create a conflict of interest between the agents and their clients. Traditional travel agents may send people to a location in exchange for a FAM trip. We find this practice repulsive. The average travel agent makes $46,000 a year; LuxRally Travel agents make multiples of that, hitting six and even seven figures. The LuxRally system is best for beginners as it takes more energy for us to fix existing agents than to make new ones.
  • What is the LuxRally Travel Agent Portal?
    Our agent portal shaves hundreds of hours a year off of booking trips, managing clients, collecting commissions, and more. Announcing the new agent portal from LuxRally Travel, Launching Septemeber 2023. Sorry, existing travel agents, we only hire new agents, so it is unfortunately too late for you to switch host agencies. For those still looking for their first host agency, however, we invite you to take advantage of the most advanced agent portal on the market. Our portal is built in-house from the ground up, with no reskinning of third parties, allowing our platform to be perfectly seamless. One Portal to Rule Them All Our comprehensive portal is the one-stop shop for creating clients, making bookings, overseeing your accounting, and more. Instead of getting lost across dozens of systems, our agent portal centralizes all the essential tools you need to be a successful travel agent. These Features include: A Dashboard with Key Statistics About Your Performance, Top Clients, and Top Vendors A Booking Dashboard Where You Can Quickly Make Bookings Directly in the Portal (Launching January 2024) Quick Invoicing to Efficiently Complete All Accounting Work Associated With Your Booking Agent Analytics to Take a Deeper Dive Into Your Performance Over Time A CRM to Manage All of Your Client Information in One Place An Accounting Portal to Manage Invoices and commissions and Begin Collections From Vendors For Unpaid Commissions Direct Access to the LuxRally Travel Knowledge Base to Quickly Find Educational Resources Direct Access to Our "Schedule a 1:1" Feature to Easily Get in Touch With LuxRally Travel Staff When Your Need In-Depth Support in Sales or Marketing You could be up and running as a travel agent by mastering this single portal. Our free agent training program will, of course, teach you about all of the tools available to travel agents. However, you can use our convenient and efficient portal to expedite your career in the travel industry. AI and Automation to Speed Up Your Processes If you are new to this industry, you are likely unaware of the tedious work that traditional host agencies require of their agents. Many small tasks eat away at your time, from matching commissions to sending collections notices. We want our agents to make money, not hone in on their skills as administrative clerks, so we have found ways to expedite processes for our team. #1 Managing Your Client Information Create, store, and organize clients in our agent portal with valuable features like credit card authorization automation. Instead of creating a client and then using a third party like CeloPay to collect credit card information, our process allows you to check a box to request the information directly from the client without leaving our portal. Our system will automatically email the client with a link to a secure form where they can safely submit their credit card information. This information will then be securely stored and tied to their account. #2 Getting Paid Faster Quick invoicing, commission matching, and automated collections emails are just a few tools we've developed to help you get paid fast. Instead of manually sifting through unmatched commission reports, sometimes sent out as complicated PDFs by host agencies, we match all received commissions for our agents. Our commission matching process saves our agents 2-4 hours each month. Sometimes, vendors need to be prompted to pay commissions. Unpaid commissions are usually due to some disorganization on the vendor's end. Collecting unpaid commissions from travel vendors is the agent's responsibility. Our system expedites this process with just a few clicks. Find the past due commission and trigger the automated email series to deliver collection notices. These emails will automatically include required documentation, such as the W9 and invoice, and personalize the content to reflect your information and appropriately address the vendor. The most significant innovation in these automated collections emails is that vendors can pay their past-due commissions directly through a payment link embedded in the email. #3 Real-Time Stats to Track Your Progress Our system offers agent analytics that visually displays critical stats. Most agents must work with clunky reporting systems or even manual reports derived from massive Excel files. Our dashboard gives you a quick overview of your stats compared to the previous thirty days, and our agent analytics section offers agents an even more granular view of their performance. Quick Stats Include: Commissions Revenue Number of Bookings Total Active Clients Average Number of Nights Per Booking Average Nightly Rate Total Number of Nights Sold Yield And Much More! #4 Chat GPT Infused Text Editors All of the text editors in our portal, including manual client communication options, have Chat GPT built right in. Need to send an email out quickly? Utilize AI to help you with the first draft without ever leaving the portal. This functionality will be expanded further for an even more seamless experience between agents, clients, and AI. As AI begins to infuse itself into the travel industry, we know that being on the bleeding edge of tech is necessary to survive industry-shaping innovations. We intend not only to survive but thrive and disrupt. Quick Innovation Our development is in-house, meaning we can quickly respond to agent feedback and nimbly optimize our portal further. We are not a start-up with a tedious board and investors weighing in on our every move. We are self-funded and fast at making decisions. If an agent has an idea that could benefit the entire company, we value this feedback and act with a sense of urgency. Many groundbreaking features are on the roadmap and will be launched over the next six months. We are confident we will be the de facto top host agency for tech-infused solutions.
  • How much does LuxRally Travel's Agent Training cost?
    Zero. Free. No hidden fees, no catch.
  • Who is a good fit for the LuxRally Travel team?
    We want general hustlers here to make money and who know how to sell. We want you if you have no sales experience but can prove to us that you are a natural-born hustler. Those with prior sales experience, mortgage brokers, car dealers, jewelers, IT salespeople, concierges, hotel sales managers, medical, pharma, top producing real estate agents, timeshare salespeople, etc., tend to be better at not only understanding the value of their networks but also understand how to advocate for their clients when interacting with vendors. We also look for individuals with large networks that deal primarily with the upper middle class and wealthy and those with a passion for all things travel, especially luxury travel and luxury dining.
  • Do I need anything specific to become a travel agent?
    We have built a comprehensive training program for brand-new agents that have never booked travel before, and it's completely free. Agents must complete this training and schedule a one-on-one session with one of our trainers. All of this is free of charge, with one requirement: that you stay with our agency for one year. You can expect the training to take 12-16 hours, three-fourths of which are self-guided. From a practical standpoint, you will need a solid computer (preferably with multiple screens), a smartphone, and a current job that allows you to interrupt your day to handle issues for traveling clients. This is a 24/7/365 career. While you will not be working all of the time, clients need to be able to reach you if they experience an emergency while on a trip.
  • What's in the Free Online LuxRally Travel Agent Training Curriculum?
    Our self-directed curriculum includes but is not limited to: ​ What is a Travel Agent? Tenets of Sales How to use a Consortium Hotel Benefits Programs Introduction to Vendors How to Use GDS How to Make Leisure Bookings How to Make Group Bookings Travel Agent Rewards Programs Everything You Need to Know About Planning and Booking Cruises How to Use the LuxRally Concierge​ Ancillary Services (Car Services, Tours, Event Tickets, and More) Travel Agent Accounting and Finance The curriculum ends with a concluding assessment, and opportunities for continued learning are offered post-graduation.
  • What is the difference between a travel agent and a travel advisor?
    There is no real difference; however, travel advisor is often the preferred term for those in the luxury sector.
  • Do I need to get my own leads?
    The short answer is that you will be responsible for getting your own leads and must cultivate a stable source of clients to earn six or seven figures as a Luxury Travel Agent. That being said, we do have a leads program. To participate in the leads program, you must complete an additional sales training module administered by our VP of Sales and maintain solid closing rates. The leads and additional training are offered to our agents at no cost. However, commissions made off of LuxRally supplied leads fall under a different commission split. We encourage new agents to try the leads program; it is a great way to practice making bookings after completing the training. For those looking to make six or seven figures, we suggest not using the leads program as a sole source of clients long term but using it as a supplementary income stream and hands-on learning opportunity.
  • Do I need to make my own travel brand to be successful?
    No, it is not a requirement for success. You can use the LuxRally Travel brand to market yourself as an agent. After graduation from our training program and completion of our orientation, you will receive the following: An @LuxRallyTravel.com Email A Landing Page (Agent Profile) on Our Website Access to Branded Templates for Business Cards, Flyers, and Other Promotional Materials Additionally, once you are officially a LuxRally Travel Agent, you will have access to our marketing team to help you create promotional branded materials. Sponsoring an event and need signage? Need help with a social media post? Our team has your back. Now, creating a brand might make sense if you plan on getting leads through SEO, paid ads that require landing pages, and other forms of marketing where a short URL is beneficial. After completing our training, if you are still determining which path is right for you, we suggest scheduling a one-on-one session with our CMO to evaluate what would be most beneficial to growing a healthy client base. Some agents use social media and personal networks, while others use branded websites and more traditional marketing tactics. It all depends on your situation, networks and background. A simple example would be if your background is in digital marketing. If you have experience in SEO, we would never discourage you from having your own site. We don't make money until you do, so we always provide feedback based on what we think will be practical for ramping up your business. Whatever you choose to do, know that we support both approaches and will provide candid feedback after learning more about your goals.
  • What can I earn commission on?
    Hotel Stays (including groups) Cruises Flights (select flights, not all flights pay commission, you will learn about this in our agent training) Tours Car Service Travel Insurance Rental Cars Private Villas Private Jets Luxury Trains
  • How do I get Paid?
    We offer a commission split based on your received commissions from your client's bookings. It is one of the best commission splits in the industry, starting at 80%/20% in your favor, meaning you keep 80% of what you make. After your first $100,000 in commissions, your split increases to 90%/10%, meaning you keep 90% of what you make. The commission resets each year back to 80%. The most productive LuxRally travel advisors can make over one million dollars in annual commissions.
  • Will I be a fully licensed travel agent after completing the LuxRally Travel Agent Training Program?
    Yes, after completing our training and orientation, you will be fully licensed under our host agency with all IATA and Seller of Travel licenses required.
  • What happens after training is over?
    After training, you become a fully licensed travel agent, ready to sell. We provide access to a superabundance of resources to ensure that all new agents feel welcomed and confident. ​ The LuxRally Group Chat: Our group chat is a go-to for most agents seeking hotel recommendations, assistance with booking tools and third parties, advice on utilizing benefits programs, and general guidance for anything that may come up. LuxRally Agents sign agreements stating they cannot poach each other's clients, allowing our agents to confidently ask for assistance without fear of giving up a promising lead. ​ Continued Mentorship: One-on-One sessions with our VP of Sales and trainers are always available to our agents. Whether you need a refresher on using a booking tool or lead generation advice, you will have access to a solid mentor. ​ Bi-Weekly Ask Me Anything (AMA) Sessions with David Eisen: David Eisen is not only the founder of LuxRally Travel but is believed to be the highest-grossing single travel agent in the world. Our agents can casually ask David anything travel related on bi-weekly video calls. ​ Weekly Vendor Chats: Each week, a vendor is invited to a companywide weekly video conference to present educational materials and lead a Q&A. From General Managers of Forbes Five-Star hotels to Mega Yacht experts, our agents have access to continued education directly from industry professionals.
  • What if I fail?
    Follow our training, and, likely, you won't. However, in the rare case you do, you will owe us nothing. Before parting ways, we will remove you from our website, group chats, and other internal resources. While a tiny percentage of our agents who complete training drop out of the program, we understand that selling travel is not for everyone.
  • Why should I choose LuxRally Travel as my host agency?

LuxRally Travel has changed my life, in the sense that they opened the doors to two individuals who knew nothing about the travel industry and made them go-to travel agents. LuxRally provides its own in-house training for its agents. They have on-call advisors to call on when we need assistance in real time.

A Recap of the First Ever LuxRally Travel Sales Symposium

Well, we did it. Our first-ever LuxRally Travel Sales Symposium was an overwhelming success. Our agency has never been more focused and energized. Over the course of two days, our agents were immersed in experiences aimed at increasing their revenue and optimizing their processes to be more efficient. We know that taking time away from home and paying for airfare and hotels is an investment. While many host agencies have cold, corporatist-style events, our symposium focused on making more money, in less time, and building authentic relationships with the people who make the hospitality world turn. These resources included invaluable 1-on-1 sessions with vendors, engaging breakouts, insightful round table discussions, informative presentations, and an unforgettable after-party. As a special treat before the symposium commenced, we invited our top two agents for an exclusive round of golf at the prestigious Trump Doral with our founder David Eisen, and his wife Courtney Eisen, our CMO. Additionally, our top five agents were treated to a dinner at BLT Prime, generously sponsored by Ultimate Jet Vacations. With such incredible opportunities for learning, networking, and relaxation, our symposium was truly a resounding victory. We cannot wait for round two next year.
