It should be clear that volume-as well as sales of higher-end products like all-inclusive cruise packages-is key to success in this industry.
On the commission front, the industry standard is 10 to 15 percent of the net cost of the product. Very high-volume cruise companies pay as much as 18 to 20 percent, although this is relatively rare. As for what you might be able to earn annually once your client base solidifies, the OOH reports that the median annual earnings of travel agents is 27,640, while the lowest 10 percent earn less than 17,180 and the top 10 percent earn more than 44,090.
It's important to note, however, that these figures reflect earnings for travel agents in traditional businesses; OOH does not collect information about homebased travel services.
