What is Uniglobe Travel Center?
Uniglobe Travel Center is a highly respected host agency that has been supporting travel advisors for over 20 years. We have grown into a family of over 700 independent travel advisors working together toward mutual success.
Yeah, but what is a host agency?
A host agency is an umbrella organization (NOT to be confused with a multi-level marketing organization… stay away from those!) that provides all the tools, resources, and support that you need to become a travel advisor and own your own agency. As an independent contractor with Uniglobe you would operate under own business name and branding. You promote your business, not ours.
Our job as a host is to support you behind the scenes and provide you with all the booking tools you need to be able to book travel as a travel advisor; relationships with suppliers (cruise lines, tour company, hotels, etc.) so that you receive the highest commissions and best support; official travel industry credentials (IATAN, ARC, CLIA) that allow you to make commission on the travel that you book; an experienced support team to call for help whenever you need it; and detailed guidance on how to get started.
How will I know where to start?
That is exactly what we are here for! In addition to supporting our existing advisors, we also have made a commitment to help new advisors enter the industry and provide in-depth instruction on how to start an agency from scratch. For the last 10 years Uniglobe has had the most comprehensive and hands-on intro program in the industry, called MentorU.
MentorU is a 6-month program of virtual coaching that covers business planning and setup, sales and marketing, preferred suppliers, booking technology, and itinerary planning. It is facilitated by two experienced travel agency professionals with a diverse depth of experience, and also supported by preferred supplier representatives and experienced mentors.
We don't just show you how to be a successful travel advisor, but also how to be a successful business owner.

Do people still use travel agents?
There is a reason we have been in business for 23 years. Our advisors collectively sell over $110 million in travel products each year! A 2016 study by ASTA (American Society of Travel Advisors) found that 22% of American households earning more than $50,000 used a travel advisor, up from 14% just three years earlier. Many may also be surprised to learn that Millennials led the way with 30% choosing to use a travel advisor. Considering that Americans are now spending an average of 23 hours researching and booking their own travel, it’s no wonder the use of travel experts is on the rise!
Ok, you have me interested, but how do I know this is right for me?
