Explore the Ways Members Save

Travel Rates include Commissions, Markups and Service Fees

A vacation purchase through "traditional" channels such as Travel Agencies, Online Websites, or directly with a Supplier, can include the following components:

  • Net "Cost" of Vaction - Amount Retained by Vendors
  • Commissions - Commissions Earned for selling Vacations
  • Service Fees - Charged by Agency for Services
  • Mark-ups - Charged when Supply and Demand Warrant

'Travel at Cost' Eliminates Service Fees & Markups

Many agencies charge services fees to offset the cost of servicing non-commissionable travel such as airfare and many add markups when demand drives prices higher.

'Travel at Cost' Awards Commissions to Members

Comission earnings vary by travel type and can range from 10% to as much as 30% of the total rate. For all standard bookings, the majority of commissions are awared to members. For Member Prefered bookings 100% of commissions are  awarded to members.
