12 Feb How PTS Helps Independent Travel Pros To Succeed
PTS provides a solution to experienced individuals that are looking to work from home selling travel. Our new and innovative solution for independent travel agents is the most profitable way to work from home, selling travel in the UK. The package includes bespoke booking software, full package travel regulation compliance, a live API feed to leading suppliers, and your own ATOL. This is the complete package, including everything you need to run a successful travel business from home. What’s more, you will retain 100% of your profit, as only transaction fees will be charged!
PTS is different from all other products in the market that charge a high monthly fee, lock you into a yearly contract, limit you to selling a select range of suppliers, and give a large percentage of your commission to a consortium. We offer an affordable setup cost, low monthly fees and only charges on a per transaction basis, allowing you – the individual advertising and selling the product – to retain 100% of the commission (profit) on each booking placed. In addition, we never lock you into a yearly contract.
The PTS independent travel agent solution allows you to be just that – completely independent. At PTS we have in essence created the scaffolding and tools to allow you to run your own travel business and maintain your own well-earned profit, whilst ensuring you are Package Travel Regulation Compliant. You can add your own suppliers, you will have the complete ability to dynamic package and the ability to build niche packages that will give your travel business a competitive edge.
We offer a comprehensive software solution that has been designed by PTS travel professionals for independent home workers. We do not take a percentage of your commission, but instead charge a small transaction fee on both incoming (from consumers) and outgoing payments (to your suppliers). You can use the live API feed on the PTS system to book, amend and confirm packages, hotels or flights at discounted agency rates, and you retain 100% of the discounted rates. You are also able to add your own suppliers, whether they are a cruise operator or even a local activity supplier in Marrakesh. By using the suppliers you source yourself, you are creating your own unique packages for your customers, and these suppliers will stay on your PTS system for you to use and maintain for future clients and bookings.
PTS will enable you and fully support you to set up your own ATOL at £740 + VAT, arrange your own merchant facilities starting from £100, and join PTS for just £450 +VAT with an annual membership fee of just £200 +VAT. All other costs are small transactional costs that we can discuss with you at length. We ensure that starting as an Independent Travel Agent with PTS is simple.
We are proud to say that we work with our members on a personal basis and build a relationship with them that is aimed at being long-term as well as profitable for both parties. The services and support we offer are designed to allow you, the travel home worker, to feel comfortable with the levels of support you receive, whilst retaining the profit you have earned. Furthermore, we offer workshops and seminars throughout the UK offering expert advice on marketing, social media, sales techniques, and travel industry laws, news & updates – attendance to which is free to PTS members.
