HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET STARTED?

Once we conduct your initial interview and receive your completed agreement and supporting documentation, we will review it and begin your implementation as soon as you are approved. If approved, we can set up our partnership in about five business days.

CAN I HAVE INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS WORKING UNDER ME?

Definitely. Their volume will be tracked separately, but will roll-up to you. We pay you, and then you pay them.

CAN I OPERATE MY BUSINESS UNDER MY OWN COMPANY NAME?

Yes. As an hosted advisor, you will operate under your own personal name or company name. In some cases (for example, if you choose to participate in Virtuoso’s award-winning marketing options), your company name may be followed by the phrase “An Affiliate of Andavo Travel”.

ARE THERE ANY EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS TO BE AN ANDAVO ADVISOR?

Yes. As a member of the prestigious Virtuoso network of luxury-focused travel agencies, Andavo Travel hosts a group of world-class advisors. We only accept advisors with a minimum of 2 years professional experience and an established book of business with a minimum of $200,000 in annual sales.

ARE THERE TRAINING OR MENTORING PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO INEXPERIENCED/NEW AGENTS?

Not at this time. Andavo Travel is currently only accepting experienced travel advisors with an established book of business.

WILL I RETAIN OWNERSHIP OF MY CLIENTS?

Definitely. As an hosted advisor, your client list is kept private to you and remains in your ownership.

HOW ARE MY BOOKINGS SENT TO ANDAVO TRAVEL’S ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT FOR PAYMENT?

Andavo Travel’s accounting system is based on invoiced transactions. You can create your invoices through the GDS or ClientBase.

HOW OFTEN DO I GET PAID?

You are paid monthly via direct deposit on the 20th of the following month.

HOW DOES ANDAVO TRAVEL TRACK MY COMMISSIONS?

Andavo Travel’s accounting department tracks commissions internally. We do not send your data to a third party for tracking.

DO I NEED ERRORS & OMMISSIONS INSURANCE?

Yes, we require you carry a $1 million policy.

CAN I JOIN ANDAVO TRAVEL IF I DO NOT LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES?

No. Unfortunately, we are only able to accept travel advisors living inside the U.S.

DO YOU HAVE A LEADS PROGRAM TO HELP ME FIND NEW CLIENTS?

On occasion, we have access to leads from Virtuoso or Christopherson Business Travel (our sister company) that we distribute to the most qualified agent. Our advisors can also set-up profiles on andavovacations.com and virtuoso.com, where consumers may contact you directly after finding your profile through various internet searches or other sources. We firmly believe this will be more beneficial to you than providing you with price-shopping leads that may compromise your commissions.

DO YOU PROVIDE ME WITH A CONSUMER WEBSITE CUSTOMIZED FOR MY AGENCY?

Andavo does not offer this service directly. However, customized consumer websites ARE available for a small fee through our membership with Virtuoso.
