Frequently asked questions
Is recruiting required?
This was the first question I asked as well, the answer is No! Recruiting is completely optional.
Right now I would like to sign up as an agent only but may be interested in recruiting in the future. Is this something I can add on later?
Yes! That's actually what I did. I wanted to get a feel or the company first and once I decided to stay with the company I signed up for PlanNet Marketing in addition to being an agent.
Is a credit check required prior to signing up?
No, a credit check is not required but for tax purposes you have an option to either provide your SSN or your business' Tax Identification Number (TIN). If you do not have a Tax Identification Number (TIN) in your business name and you would like to obtain one, you can do so for free and in less than 5 minutes by visiting IRS.gov.
This sounds really good, how do I get started and how long do I have to wait before I start booking travel?
I'm excited that you are interesting in joining me on this journey. You can literally be on your way in about 5 minutes.
I have no experience with being a travel agent, will there be any training and/or support?
Yes!! Aside from the recruiting question this was one of my biggest concerns. You do not need prior experience and there will be TONS of training and support around you. Not only do we have leadership to refer our questions to but we also have a Live Chat feature in our back office and also a toll free telephone number we can contact for assistance.
Why would I want to become a Home Based Agent instead of starting my own agency from scratch? How much is this going to cost me?
That's another great question. Prior to finding out about the Home Based Agent companies I research starting my own company from scratch. One of the required accreditations (IATA) alone would be $15,000 for the non-refundable application fee, another $15,000 entrance fee paid upon completion of the application review and THEN the annual fees are $14,000. So that's $30,000 to start and $14,000 annually just to keep your IATA accreditation.
