There's a reason why they are where they are. Our travel advisors are not only trained well...Read More!
I've been with Vincent Vacations since July 2020.

I've learned so much and the team of agents have been helpful...Read More!
Started working for Vincent Vacations 4 years ago when Lia was starting to build up her independent agents. I was looking for a side job that would get my mind off my 9-5 job and would be a good way to earn some money. Lia had been my travel agent for several years and found out she was hiring independent agents, so I decided to take a leap and nose dive into learn the travel industry. I have traveled and lived out of the country but yet I have learned I knew nothing...Read More!
I have been an independent travel agent, from home, with Vincent Vacations for two years. When I began in October of 2019, the impending pandemic was far from any of our minds. While the travel industry has obviously been affected by the global pandemic, the tools and support of Lia and the Vincent team have never wavered. Though there have been many unforeseen changes, cancellations and uncertainty, the travel industry and my personal business is still active and quite profitable.Read More!

The most successful independent agents are self starters with an appetite to always learn something new. The world is a huge, ever changing place, and we are always excited to learn about something new. Previous sales experience is of course helpful, but not a requirement.

Our initial training is 3 days with some at home work to finish at your own pace. This takes most new to industry agents about 2 weeks to complete. Commissions are paid after your clients travel. There are exceptions to this, but most receive their first check 3-6 months after training.
Also, we assist you in spending some time building your online presence, so you are generating new leads. We have sales and marketing training, as well as product training, to help get you on your feet! It can take a few weeks to complete your marketing plan, so please be patient!
Independent agents have the ultimate flexibility. They work from where they are â€“ in destination, at home, or from a local coffee shop. They do what works best for them. From initial travel consultations, creating vacation proposals, or assisting with during travel needs, our agents have the flexibility to work from anywhere.
Also, you will be selling travel! Based on your niche / interest, this could be selling family package trips to all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, to honeymoons in Tahiti! Through marketing yourself online, and through other channels, you will set yourself up to receive travel leads, and close some sales! Our biggest sellers are Mexico, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Disney and Europe. From time-to-time, we may send you leads from our office.
We have found agents are the most successful with marketing via social media. We will go over dos and donâ€™ts to be successful with this. We also provide content to keep your social media fresh without it creating too much work for the agent. We want Vincent Vacations agents to focus on selling.

Yes! There are quite a few perks that come with being a travel agent! We go over this during training. We have a variety of ways to earn free and discounted travel. Most perks are based on what you sell.
Also, a lot depends on what you're selling and what suppliers you use. Basically, the more you sell, the more travel perks you can expect to receive! For agents, we typically have discounts on FAMs (travel agent familiarization trips - usually to international resort locations), company retreats and events.
