New to the industry?

I've never sold travel professionally, but I want to learn how to!
I've gone through some training, but I don't have many bookings.

We love welcoming new people into our industry. Many of our agents started with little to no experience as a Travel Agent. Our team provides tools, resources, and education to help you get started in a BIG way!
Working with new agents means that we get to help you from the ground up. Whether you have a little bit of training under your belt, you've booked a few vacations for friends and family, or you're just not sure where to go from here -- 
we've got your back!

All new advisors must show proof of ONE of the following:

1) Enrollment in the Business Builder Program* through Goulds Travel

2) A professional industry certification (click here for the RTA certification. It is our preferred certification program and we do have a discount for you)

3) Documentation of experience with $5,000 in earned commissions (Good news! If you qualify for this, you are considered an experienced agent)

*Our Business Builder Program is hands-on, intensive program offered periodically through Goulds Travel at an additional cost to Hosted Advisors. You will earn the Recognized Travel Advisor (RTA) certification through Travel Advisor Resource Center (TARC), as well as some great tips to help build your business efficiently.
The big question is: are you joining as an Associate Advisor or as a Hosted Advisor?
