    Hi,

    I am currently researching a niche tour business to Europe.

    Does anyone know of a licensed Travel Agent that works in partnership with small Tour Operators to avoid becoming a licensed Travel Agent ?

    There are currently legislation changes to Travel Agency Licensing taking place, which will include the winding up of the TCF (Travel Compensation Fund). The changes will take place during 2013/14.

    Regards
    Normskiii

    My post may have been too specific.

    Are there any Travel Agents on flying solo interested in working in partnership with a new niche tour business ?

    My dilemma is that the plan for my tour business is to start small and grow steadily. Travel agency licensing costs and TCF membership is currently $10,000+ for the first year (which would be a considerable amount of my first year profit). With the TCF being disbanded in 2013/14, I see this as a complete waste of $10,000.

    If anyone is interested please contact me for more information.

    Regards
    Normskiii

    Hi Normskiii,

    I have a travel agent among my staff – we’re not a full service travel agency but we do a sizable amount of it each day. I’m not sure what arrangement you’re looking for, but I might be able to help you out.

    I’ve sent you a PM.

    Blake.
