Funjet Vacations reports that travel agents can now earn five percent commission on American Airlines published airfares and a new limited-time bonus cash offer in conjunction with the new policy. The addition of all destinations, both international and domestic via American Airlines, further expands Funjet’s list of carriers that are eligible for five percent commission on published fares.
"This provides a huge opportunity for travel agents to make money fast as American Airlines is one of the largest air carriers in the world, serving 250 cities in 40 countries with more than 3,400 daily flights," Funjet says.
Earning the five percent commission on American Airlines published airfares is simple, Funjet says. Travel agents can capitalize on the commission for all new bookings and all departures, regardless of destination, class of service, and travel dates via American Airlines. Since this is a standing policy, agents can continue to benefit from increased commission and better position themselves for growth moving into 2012.
In addition to the commission, travel agents automatically receive $10 bonus cash for every new booking with Funjet and American Airlines. Valid from all origins to any destination, agents can earn cash on every American Airlines reservation now through October 20, 2011 for all travel dates.
To be eligible for this bonus offer, participants must be members of Fun For Life, Funjet Vacations’ Agent Rewards Program. Cash is automatically tracked through the program making earning easier than ever, Funjet says.
Travel agents can already earn 5 percent commission on numerous other carriers, as well as up to 15 percent on bulk fares and Charter/Value flights, Funjet says.
Agents can also increase their commission up to 17 percent by selling upgraded room categories at participating resorts. More details about earning bonus commission on upgraded room categories, valid on the hotel portion of the vacation, can be found at VAXVacationAccess.com/FunjetUpgrades. Finally, agents can utilize the ‘Set Your Commission’ tool in VAX VacationAccess to maximize their earning potential, Funjet says.
“We at Funjet strive to make earning money for agents as fast and as easy as possible. We are extremely excited to offer yet another way for agents to do exactly this!” says Darya Camacci, Funjet Vacations’ VP of sales and marketing.
