Advantage to recruit homeworkers

Consortia reveals Travel Specialists by Advantage

Advantage, the UK’s largest independent consortia, has announced that it will be launching a homeworking division called Travel Specialists by Advantage.

The new framework and fee structure is based on 2 per cent of turnover with Advantage saying that the model is a hybrid between traditional homeworking organisation and a managed services model.

In a statement the company said: “Travel Specialists by Advantage is aimed at existing homeworkers looking for less support and a higher share of commission, and experienced travel agents considering starting their own business.”

Kelly Cookes, leisure director at Advantage Travel Partnership added: “We’re really excited to be launching Travel Specialists by Advantage as it was a natural progression for us to add this to our portfolio. As a result of the pandemic, unfortunately many talented agents have lost jobs, and we hope this will help those looking for new opportunities during this time. With a competitive commission structure and a host of benefits and support from our expert team, this model is a great option for travel agents looking for the security that comes with being part of a consortium with the flexibility of homeworking.”
