A Military Spouse's Guide to Becoming a Travel Advisor


You're a pro at navigating delayed flights, communicating through different time zones and managing last-minute itinerary changes. Don't you think it's time you started getting paid for those types of skills? We certainly do!

Picture this: You own your own travel business and earn commission checks by planning trips for friends, clients and other military families. You find the best deals, so they come back to you for all their future trips. Plus, you make your own schedule so you can work whenever, wherever and however you like.

That sounds like a dream, right? Well, we're here to turn your dreams into reality!

You've continuously supported your spouse, adapting to every change the military throws your way, but supporting their professional goals doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your own. It's time to experience the work-life balance you've always deserved!

With Avoya Travel®, becoming a travel advisor has never been easier. Here's our guide on how to get started:

1. Utilize Avoya's Military Discount
To show our appreciation for military families, we offer $100 off your Avoya Network™ affiliation and $100 off your Travel Agent Education Powered by Avoya enrollment fee. We created this discount exclusively for active duty, veterans and their spouses, to help jumpstart your journey in the travel industry.

2. Get Certified
Your success is our first priority! Our team of travel experts is always working diligently behind-the-scenes to provide educational and professional development opportunities designed to fuel your growth.

As a new travel advisor, completing a travel agent education program, like Travel Agent Education Powered by Avoya, is a huge first step in your professional path! Education may not be required by some travel partners, but at Avoya we understand the value of an educational foundation for your business, which is why we created this award-winning program.

Plus, we know time is precious – especially for military families. Our curriculum comes in bite-sized, self-paced lessons so you can customize your learning experience to fit your unique needs.

When you enroll in our Pro or Essential plans, you'll earn an IAM Membership for Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), an FTP Membership for American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) and an industry-recognized certification through the Travel Agent Education Certification™ exam upon graduation. These will open the door for you to pursue additional industry certifications and begin your journey in the travel industry with confidence!

3. Start Selling
Once you complete your education and earn your certifications, you'll have a solid understanding of the travel industry and how to make travel dreams come true. The next step is to start selling!

You're surrounded by families, couples and service members who are always looking for their next adventure. Flying home for the holidays, planning a getaway before deployment, traveling cross-country for a PCS move, spending a long weekend away from base – you get the point. As a travel advisor, you'll be able to help them find the best prices on flights, hotels, resorts and more, quickly becoming their go-to person for all their travel needs.

Looking to expand your client base outside the military community? We've got you covered! Our talented team of in-house graphic designers is constantly creating new assets for our Marketing Resource Center™. When you join Avoya, you'll unlock access to this vault of customizable marketing materials (and so much more). Need email marketing templates to send to your past clients or social media images to attract new clients? Look no further! We take the guesswork out of marketing so you can spend less time searching for clients and more time selling.

4. Work from Anywhere
Say goodbye to the days of searching for a new job with every PCS move or juggling an in-person 9-5 while solo-parenting during deployments. It's time to say hello to professional freedom. Trust us, you deserve it!

As an Independent Agent in the Avoya Network, how, where and when you work is entirely up to you, along as it's done with Integrity and Professionalism™. Plus, you'll have access to best-in-class resources so you can start up, scale up and sell like an expert, no matter where the military sends your family.

Our in-house SaaS technology platform, Agent Power™, was designed to be as dynamic as you are. With an integrated booking engine, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, knowledge base, support desk and more, you have everything you need all in one place. The best part? This powerhouse platform is available anywhere, from any device, so you can take your business on the go. Whether you're calling clients in the commissary parking lot, answering emails during your daughter's nap time or sending itineraries from a base overseas, you can seamlessly run your travel business with our industry-leading technology.

What are you waiting for?
Not only do you deserve the flexibility and freedom of running your own business, but you also deserve a trusted travel partner who values the unique needs of your military lifestyle.
