Anita Pagliasso, President of Path: “To the extent that PATH requires in an IC agreement, there are model contracts published by ASTA with guidelines that contain clearly specified conditions, conditions and commission details. We have provided PATH members with a copy of the agreement recommended by ASTA. A sub-agent is one or two people who hire you as travel agents in your travel agency. The company remains the rightful owner of all titles, rights and interests of the property as well as any material provided for the conclusion of this agreement. At Nexion, we provide our members with a standard sub-agent contract to facilitate entry, which our agency owners can tailor to their unique business model and individual needs. 3. Compensation with commissions: According to Friedman, “the agreement should contain a list of all compensations. This list would include direct debits, commission reminders, customer refunds and refunds. “With regard to the deduction of commissions, you can answer these questions: in addition, the company undertakes to provide the travel agency with sales and marketing material to promote the accommodations and services listed in this agreement. Remember that when setting up your parameters and criteria, you should keep in mind that a poor choice in recruiting a sub-agent can damage your agency and its reputation, as well as a good choice can help you grow your agency and provide you with the support you need. Renowned lawyer Jeff Miller hosted a workshop on this topic at Travel Weekly`s CruiseWorld last November, during which he presented valuable insights. I would like to highlight some of them in this month`s column and share them with you. One of the hottest topics at Nexion is the conversation about our agency owners expanding their teams, whether by adding sub-agents as independent contractors or adding staff.
Our private social networking community, NexionTown, is constantly dealing with this issue, and our agents help each other navigate these often complicated waters. Cris joined Nexion`s leadership team in 2015 and has been part of the travel industry for 18 years. . . .
