Travel is the world's largest industry - $7 Trillion - that's right, $7,000,000,000,000 - this includes airlines, hotels, car rentals, cruises, exclusive vacations, and much, much more. There are popular times to travel (Easter, Spring Break, Summer, Thanksgiving, Christmas and other holidays and special occasions and then there are the groups trips, the church trips like missions, reunions, and of course special get-always. Let's face it, sooner or later we are going to travel, we are going to stay in a hotel, take a flight and rent a car (even while ours is in the shop. Then add to this flowers, golf, and event tickets - there is a lot of money generated in the travel industry and we all are doing our fair share - American Express Travel Services estimate that families spend $4,200 annually on travel - again, it's being done by a lot of people.

Now through network marketing and the internet, "regular" folks can travel as an insider by buying a "travel store" or Online Travel Agency. You become a Referring Travel Agent (RTA) which gives you the travel agent credentials and allows you to take advantage of the travel industry perks. If you use any of the popular online travel sites, there is a market shift taking place and it benefits anyone who travels. Vendors in the travel industry pay commissions to travel agents and agencies who direct customers to them. An online travel site is a travel agency. Whenever anything is booked on an online travel site, a commission is paid to that company. As the online travel agency has become more and more popular, now over 80% of all travel is being booked online. The traditional travel agent primarily handles unique travel requests, but 80% of the time, the customer can get it done with an online travel agency.

What's the market shift? The combination of the Internet, Baby-boomers and Network Marketing is creating this market shift. With this market shift, all three have come together and have made it feasible for anyone who travels to own an online travel agency and receive credentials to be a Referring Travel Agent (RTA) and consequently, earn commissions of all bookings done on their site by themselves as well any and all others referred to their site. And the RTA is able to successfully compete with all the popular online travel sites as well as the traditional travel agent. Most people enjoy traveling. Some enjoy it enough to start a travel agency. Now with the advanced Internet and a proven business model, it's possible to own a Virtual Travel Agency that generates income for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Becoming a Referring Travel Agent allows you to become a "travel agent" without having to go through intense training and having to purchase a traditional travel agency. Setting up a traditional travel agency would take time and thousands of dollars and then require you to constantly re-invest into your business. This is an exciting opportunity which allows you to make a substantial income in the fastest growing industry in the country and the world and it is through a licensed and publicly traded company. But best of all, it will take you just under $500 to get everything you need to get started (which is a few moments after you pay your license fee). Your on-going business expense is $50 per month which covers your web site maintenance and upgrades, tracking of all travel bookings on your site as well as all commissions you earn. As your business grows, you manage your business via an online Back Office. You'll receive Travel Agent perks like upgrades, discounts and specials! Make a lucrative commission every time someone books a cruise, flight, vacation, hotels and car rentals on your very own site. Receive HUGE savings on your own travel and vacations with your Travel Agent credentials. You will also have the opportunity to create true lifetime residual income.
