We issue your tickets for you, we don't charge you extra for this. We only support our Travel Counsellors so we will never compete against you. We do all the supplier negotiations to ensure that you have access to the best deals possible. After hours support is available to all Travel Counsellors, for all emergencies. You don't have to worry about things like PCI compliance. This is our responsibility and all you need to do is to follow our operational guidelines.

BEE Accreditation

We provide our Travel Counsellors with a BEE accreditation. We are members of both IATA and ASATA. We provide your clients with a Financial Protection Plan. This protects them against supplier failure.

Some ITC models offer higher commission structures. At face value you may believe that you can earn more. We challenge you to weigh up the costs to buy a laptop to insure it and to include all the software needed. Plus add up the marketing costs like building websites, travel apps, a CRM. Not only will this cost you but consider the time that it will take you to do your own marketing, to apply for a BEE score. And consider if you have the skill to be an IT and marketing guru. All this takes away from your passion of selling travel.

Come and meet with us. Allow us the opportunity to show you how we can support you and why that we have the best offering.
