Have you ever wondered how much travel agents make? Most people have no idea how much commission travel agents make on each booking. In this article, we’ll take a look at how much travel agents make in commission on various bookings.
The commission that a travel agent earns on a booking depends on a few factors, including the type of booking, the destination, the length of stay, and the season. For example, a travel agent is likely to earn a higher commission on an international trip booked during the high season than on a domestic trip booked during the low season.
Here are some average commission rates that travel agents earn on various types of bookings:
Airline tickets: 5-10%
Hotel rooms: 10-15%
Car rentals: 10-20%
Tours and activities: 10-20%
Vacation packages: 10-20%
Once a travel agent has earned their commission on a booking, they may also receive additional bonuses and incentives from the travel supplier. These bonuses and incentives can vary greatly, but they usually range from $50 to $500 per booking.
