Not Your Typical Travel Agency

LuxRally Travel is revolutionizing the luxury travel industry using unconventional methods to attract and retain billionaires and high-net-worth clientele. Where other agencies charge fees and chase FAMs LuxRally Travel focuses on providing convenient value to the world's wealthiest luxury travelers and their peripheral markets. Many of our agents are from our networks in the exotic car community. This offers our clients access to well-traveled advisors who "get it" when it comes to luxury.

Hospitality professionals with experience working in Forbes Five-Star properties comprise the LuxRally Travel concierge and business development teams. Understanding what is under the hood of a hotel means that the LuxRally Travel team can cut to the chase and make practical moves with their hotel partners while always acting as fiduciaries for the client.

 

Our in-house concierge also acts as a supporting arm for our hotel partners in servicing our VIP clients. Knowing when hotel staff are becoming disconnected from a VIP's needs means that the hotel and LuxRally concierge can avoid potential problems through proactive communication. Knowing which bottle of wine a VIP may want at dinner, setting up spa appointments, and coordinating personalized welcome gifts for top spenders are just a few ways our in-house team smooths out the logistics of our client's trips.

FAQ

Do I need experience to become a luxury travel advisor with LuxRally Travel?


No, we do not hire prior travel agents. Our methods and philosophies are often opposite to that of traditional travel agencies. For example, we do not believe in charging service fees, and this is something experienced agents cannot wrap their heads around. Additionally, while we enjoy free travel occasionally, we do not believe in FAM culture. FAMs are free group trips for travel agents and often create a conflict of interest between the agents and their clients. Traditional travel agents may send people to a location in exchange for a FAM trip. We find this practice repulsive.


The average travel agent makes $46,000 a year; LuxRally Travel agents make multiples of that, hitting six and even seven figures. The LuxRally system is best for beginners as it takes more energy for us to fix existing agents than to make new ones.


Who is a good fit for the LuxRally Travel team?


We want general hustlers here to make money and who know how to sell. We want you if you have no sales experience but can prove to us that you are a natural-born hustler. Those with prior sales experience, mortgage brokers, car dealers, jewelers, IT salespeople, concierges, hotel sales managers, medical, pharma, top producing real estate agents, timeshare salespeople, etc., tend to be better at not only understanding the value of their networks but also understand how to advocate for their clients when interacting with vendors. We also look for individuals with large networks that deal primarily with the upper middle class and wealthy and those with a passion for all things travel, especially luxury travel and luxury dining.


How much does LuxRally Travel's Agent Training cost?


Zero. Free. No hidden fees, no catch.


How long does LuxRally's travel agent training take?


The training can be broken down into three portions:


  1. A Self-Guided Course on Teachable: 20-50 hours (varies by the speed of the individual). This should take you 2-4 weeks.
  2. A Launch Meeting on Microsoft Teams: 1-2 hours (scheduled weekly)
  3. You Will Have a One Week Period to Prepare for Your Practical Exam
  4. A Practical Exam / Final Assessment on Microsoft Teams: 3-4 hours (scheduled weekly)


You have four weeks to complete the Teachable portion of your training. If you do not complete the training within four weeks of your enrollment (note: enrollment occurs after your contract is signed/counter-signed), you will be removed from the program.


You have three attempts to pass your practical exam. If you fail on your first attempt, you may retake it the following week.


You can expect to become an agent within 3-6 weeks, depending on how quickly you complete the teachable and whether you pass your final assessment on the first attempt.


Do I need anything specific to become a travel agent?


From a practical standpoint, you will need a solid computer (preferably with multiple screens), a smartphone, and a current job that allows you to interrupt your day to handle issues for traveling clients. This is a 24/7/365 career. While you will not be working all of the time, clients need to be able to reach you if they experience an emergency while on a trip.


What can I earn commission on?


You can earn commissions, usually between 10-20%, from the following:


  • Hotel Stays (including groups)
  • Cruises
  • Flights (select flights, not all flights pay commission, you will learn about this in our agent training)
  • Tours
  • Car Service
  • Travel Insurance
  • Rental Cars
  • Private Villas
  • Private Jets
  • Luxury Trains


How do I get Paid?


We offer a commission split based on the commissions you receive from your clients' bookings. It is one of the best commission splits in the industry, starting at 80%/20% in your favor, meaning you keep 80% of what you make. After your first $100,000 in commissions, your split increases to 90%/10%, meaning you keep 90% of what you make. The commission resets each year back to 80%. The most productive LuxRally travel advisors can earn six to seven figures from their commissions.


Will I be a fully licensed travel agent after completing the LuxRally Travel Agent Training Program?


Yes, after completing our training and orientation, you will be fully licensed under our host agency with all IATA and Seller of Travel licenses required.


What happens after training is over?


After training, you become a fully licensed travel agent, ready to sell. We provide access to a superabundance of resources to ensure that all new agents feel welcomed and confident.


  • The LuxRally Group Chat: Our group chat is a go-to for most agents seeking hotel recommendations, assistance with booking tools and third parties, advice on utilizing benefits programs, and general guidance for anything that may come up. LuxRally Agents sign agreements stating they cannot poach each other's clients, allowing our agents to confidently ask for assistance without fear of giving up a promising lead.


  • Continued Mentorship: One-on-one sessions with our VP of Sales and trainers are always available to our agents. Whether you need a refresher on using a booking tool or lead generation advice, you will have access to a solid mentor.


  • Bi-Weekly Ask Me Anything (AMA) Sessions with David Eisen: David Eisen is not only the founder of LuxRally Travel but is believed to be the highest-grossing single travel agent in the world. Our agents can casually ask David anything travel-related on bi-weekly video calls.


  • Weekly Vendor Chats: Each week, a vendor is invited to a companywide weekly video conference to present educational materials and lead a Q&A. From General Managers of Forbes Five-Star hotels to Mega Yacht experts, our agents have access to continued education directly from industry professionals.


  • Bi-weekly Marketing Round Tables: Every other week, a destination is highlighted with advice, tips, hotel recommendations, example posts, and general discussion.


What are the requirements to remain an agent with LuxRally Travel?


To maintain your status as an agent with LuxRally Travel, you must meet the following requirements throughout the duration of your time with us:


  1. Email Communication: Agents must regularly log into their LuxRally Travel email address. If they have not logged in within 30 days or use an alternate email address for communications, this could affect their standing.
  2. Sales Performance: Agents must make at least one sale every 90 days. This can be any sale as long as it is not personal travel (booked by the agent for their own travel).
  3. Availability: It's important that agents have ample availability for clients. Limited availability may impact their ability to serve clients effectively.
  4. Equipment: Agents need access to a reliable computer to run their travel business. Without this, they may struggle to manage their work efficiently.
  5. Community Participation: Being part of the official LuxRally Travel Agent Facebook chat(s) or group(s) is a requirement. This helps agents stay connected and updated with the latest information. These are private channels for agency-related information and support.
  6. Revenue Generation: Our agents must sell $30,000 in revenue per year.


By meeting these requirements, agents can ensure they maintain their status with LuxRally Travel. Agents who do not meet these requirements are cut from our agency.


If you have additional questions regarding this list of requirements, we encourage you to ask them during your interview after applying to our program.
