Outside Sales Agents

for travel and outside sale agents

The Dupont Travel Network is seeking experienced outside sales agents and small businesses for commission based sales. Dupont Travel is a leader in the nation’s capital for governmental and corporate travel, both domestically and internationally. Dupont Travel’s OSAN is a program designed to offer your small business the opportunity to sell travel options to your clients.

The OSAN program is a great opportunity to increase your monthly revenue with the marketing and name of an established leader in the community.

OUTSIDE SALES AGENT NETWORK (OSAN)

 

           By definition, an Outside Sales Agent is someone involved in the marketing and selling of travel products from a location outside of the host travel agency.  An Outside Sales Agent is at liberty to work from home or another office location including internationally.

The Dupont Travel Network offers a wide range of travel services all over the world including but not limited to:

  • Honeymoons and weddings
  • Vacation Packages and Tours
  • Private jet and limousine rental
  • Helicopter tours
  • Convention and Meeting Planning
  • Exclusive pricing for airline tickets (Coach,Business,First)

BENEFITS & COMMISSION

The cost of starting a start up business can be astronomical considering the need for office, operating expenses, staff and all necessary licenses and requirements.  The Dupont Travel Network allows Outside Sales Agents to work from home or your office without meeting any minimum sales quotas or objectives.

The schedule of fees and commissions are unlimited but straightforward.  Commission from suppliers and vendors is divided equally 50% between Dupont Travel and the outside agents.  In addition, there is no limit to the amount of commissions an agent may earn. 

For example, a basic 7 night cruise with a preferred cruise line can cost $1200 per person.   With a commission structure of 20%, the commission structure would afford $120 per person so a cruise for 10 people would net the outside sales agent $1200. 

In addition to earning extra income, profitable agents may be eligible to receive the IATAN card after meeting certain requirements.  The IATAN card is the official card of the travel agent industry and provides discounted rates for hotels and airlines.  IATAN agents are also invited to participate in free or low cost familiarization trips (FAMs). 

In addition, Dupont Travel’s affiliation with TravelLeaders allows agents to earn more as preferred suppliers offer extra cash incentives and promotional bonuses. 

 

TRAINING & FEES

The Dupont Travel Network provides training at no cost to you.  It is easy to get started as there is NO SIGN UP FEES…..just a small monthly administrative fee of $49 per company (unlimited number of agents) or a flat yearly fee of $500.  Other companies charge upwards of $200 - $400 per year, per person!  You may cancel at any time with 30 days written notice.  If you are not satisfied for whatever reason, we also offer an initial refund valid for the first 30 days so you have nothing to lose.

 

HOW IT WORKS

 The Dupont Travel Network works with a wide gamut of vendors and suppliers to find you the best possible travel deal or enhanced travel experience available.  We realize that no single vendor exists that will offer the best rates, higher commissions or most trustworthy services so we have selected a list of preferred vendors for you compiled from years of experience in the travel field. Other travel companies will persuade you with the idea of convenience with one single vendor to use which can greatly limit the travel options available to you.  With our tremendous purchasing power, an Outside Sales Agent will usually earn by:

 You market the same travel product at a price lower than what is available by competitors or to the general public

OR

You market the same travel product as your competitors or as found online but receive a higher commission.
