A Review Of Pro Travel Plus – Can You Really Succeed Selling Travel?

An Unbiased Pro Travel Plus Review – Should You Join?

So there’s yet another Network Marketing company in pre-launch that’s getting some buzz. The company is called Pro Travel Plus, and if you stumbled on this article you’re probably doing some research on the company before you join as a distributor. If that’s the case, look no further. In this Pro Travel Plus Review, I’ll cover all the essential details you need to know before getting started. I’ll also go into the actual compensation plan so you’ll get a pretty good idea of how to get paid. Before moving forward, I do want to disclose that I’m not a Pro Travel Plus distributor, nor have I used their services. I say that to let you know that it really doesn’t make a difference to me whether you join or not so you can be sure that you’ll be getting an unbiased Pro Travel Plus Review.

Who is Pro Travel Plus?

Sadly, there isn’t much information available on the actual company. I scoured the Internet and really couldn’t find out who the actual owner is or who is on the corporate team. I also couldn’t find out where the company is located. The only thing I discovered after viewing some videos on YouTube is that a gentleman by the name of Seth Fraser is the company’s CEO. It seems that Seth Fraser has been around the Industry for a while. He was affiliated with That Free Thing, and more recently he was involved with Kannaway. From the looks of it, Pro Travel Plus is offering members a discount on travel. Members also have access to a $500 voucher they can use on airline tickets, hotels and car rentals. Again, since as of this writing there isn’t much information available and since their portal isn’t live yet, there’s not much details on their travel portal I could find. The good news is the company is positioned in the Travel Industry. Travel is an $8 Trillion Industry and is expected to grow past $15 Trillion over the next 10 years. From a marketing perspective, it’s easy to talk about and sell travel because almost everyone either travels or would love to travel more. With that being said, knowing who the principals are behind the company is extremely important if you’re looking to plant your flag and build a long-term business.

How Do You Get Paid?

I couldn’t find an official compensation plan document so it was through several distributor videos that I was able to see how Pro Travel Plus pays their distributors. In order to get started, you have 3 different options to join: 1 Star ($69.95, $34.95/month), 2 Star ($269.90) and 3 Star ($469.90). You can also start at 1 Star and promote yourself to 2 Star and 3 Star through building a team of active distributors.

There are 5 different ways to get paid:

Powerline Bonus – As people join the company, they are time stamped and the company can track who joined the company after you. Distributors are positioned down one straight line and as people get started, you can earn 5% down 5 levels regardless of who enrolls them.

Fast Start Bonus – You can earn a one-time bonus as people join your personal organization tree. As people join at the 3 Star level ($469.90 cost), you’ll earn $30 on your 1st level, $5 on your second level and $3 on your third level. If people join at the 2 Star level ($269.90 cost), you’ll earn $25 on your first level and $5 on your second level. And if people join at the 1 Star level ($69.95 cost), you’ll earn a $15 bonus on all your personally sponsored people.

Coded Infinity Fast Start Overrides – Once you hit 3 Star, you’ll earn between $1 and $2 on every person on your team through 3 Generations of 3 Star Leaders.

Residual Income from 2X14 Matrix – The company has a matrix whereby you only have 2 positions on your 1st level and you’re forced to place every person you enroll underneath other people once your top 2 positions were filled. Placement is critical in a matrix compensation plan because if you join early, you can potentially have hundred of distributors under you that you did not bring in. A completely filled out 2X14 Matrix pays out over $25,000/month if everyone in your matrix is active.

Matching Bonus – based on your rank, you can earn between 2% to 15% Match of the Matrix commissions earned by people in your personal enrollment tree down 6 levels. You’ll earn a 50% Match on all your personals.

From the looks of it, the compensation plan looks pretty lucrative. Again, if you’re serious about building a long-term business, get your hands on the official compensation plan documents so you can see for yourself what you need to do to earn income.

Should You Join?

Well… only you can truly answer that. If travel is your thing and you like the idea of joining a start-up company, then maybe Pro Travel Plus is for you. Statistically, start-up companies in the Network Marketing industry never make it past 5 years. Of course, some companies do assuming there is strong and experienced leadership running the company. Because they are in pre-launch there’s no way of finding out who is behind Pro Travel Plus so it’s hard to tell if they will be positioned for the long haul. One thing is clear… if you do decide to partner with Pro Travel Plus, you’re going to need leads to build your business. Without leads, you can have the greatest opportunity in the world but if you don’t have any leads to talk to, you have little to no chance of succeeding. This is why I suggest you learn Attraction Marketing. If you can leverage technology and learn how to generate leads online, and you can implement the building system your upline leadership has in place, there’s no telling how prosperous you can become.

Travel Trends for Vacationers in 2015

This year, vacationers, holidaymakers, and backpackers will experience for themselves how things have changed in the way that people travel and enjoy their vacation days. In the advent of the 21st century, so much has already changed. These trends in travel only reflect the ongoing evolution in our lifestyle. Here are some of the top travel trends of 2015. If you are planning on an extended vacation, or setting out often to foreign destinations, you might as well pay attention so that you are better prepared for the changes that you just might encounter.

Cheaper air travel

At this time, domestic travel within territories is already cheap so that local tourism is experiencing a boost in many countries. This is largely due to the increasing presence of new airlines that focus on offering budget fares. International flights are still rather pricey, but this year, the prediction is that airfare to destinations in Europe will be more affordable. Some specialists are insisting that this will happen because of the lowering of fuel prices. As a consequence of this, the prices for international flying will be lowered as well. In addition, it is also expected that carriers that are already offering non-stop flights from the United States to foreign destinations will be offering new routes. Definitely, this is good news to budge travelers.

More convenience for air travelers

In the past few years, many aspects about air travel have changed. For instance, some flights now allow usage of cellular phones in between take off and landing. Just a few years ago, this was unthinkable. These days, flight bookings, flight transfers, as well as boarding procedures are also more efficient and streamlined with the increased usage of available digital technology. This year, the production of new airplanes that are more spacious and space saving offers future travelers with more comfortable economy seats, instead of the cramped quarters that economy travelers usually have to suffer through. We can expect more innovative solutions that will make air travel, as well as other forms of transportation on land and over water more comfortable and convenient to passengers.

Millennials and the travel bag

Individuals aged 18-34 years old-the so-called Millennials are predicted to travel more this year. For us this means an influx of younger travelers by air, by water, and by land. This is attributed to the greater availability of travel money for this demographic. More millennials are expected to be bitten by the travel bug since they are also currently being targeted by the marketing programs of airlines, hotels, and holiday resorts. All sorts of travel packages are currently in the market and many of these are designed to attract small groups of young professionals and millennials to travel more and choose international destinations over local ones.

Moreover, for the past few years, the constituents of the tourism industry have been making improvements in their facilities to cater to the requirements of this generation of travelers. The objective of these renovations and additions is for the facilities to be able to cater fully to the needs of younger travelers.

Travel Industry – Evolving, Sophisticated and Under Appreciated Industry

The printed press and social media are full of headlines such as:

” 9 Things Your Travel Agent Will Not Tell You,” “Useless Jobs,” “Travel Do it Yourself” or “How to be a Travel Hacker.” Furthermore, if you search the definition of a Travel Agency you will find information that says:

“With general public access to the Internet, many airlines and other travel companies began to sell directly to passengers. As a consequence, airlines no longer needed to pay the commissions to travel agents on each ticket sold. Since 1997, travel agencies have gradually been disintermediated”(Cutting the middle man).

Misconceptions including the belief that using a Travel Agency will cost clients more, or the infamous question, “Do travel agents still exist?” need to be addressed. Our labor of love has never been put to the test more than now, but was it always like this? Were Travel Agents always under-appreciated? Why? How is it that our 127-year-old industry is being placed in this modern-day situation?

Here’s an interesting fact: The oldest known travel agency in the United States is Brownell Travel, founded on July 4, 1887. Mr. Walter T. Brownell led ten travelers on a European tour, setting sail from New York on the SS Devonia. Originally, travel catered only for upper class customers, but the post-war boom opened travel to the mass market, allowing everyone to look for convenient ways to go back to Europe for “the holidays.”

I commend Mr. Brownell and his legacy, taking those early travel pioneers to the old continent. I also commend and congratulate the new owners for continuing their services today.

Changes of the perception of Travel Agents, are clear shown in the contrast of messages, of 2 of our Presidents, we were particularly praised by President John F. Kennedy in 1963, and nowadays are considered irrelevant, even according to President Obama in a 2011 speech.

Here is a transcript of their messages;

In President John F. Kennedy’s own words:

“It gives me great pleasure to extend my greetings to the American Society of travel agents on the occasion of its annual Congress. Your contributions to the furthering of peace and international understanding through the promotion and stimulation of worldwide travel are most heartening.

The economic impact of your work has been beneficial for countries large and small. Your organization has been a vital instrument of expansion for the economies of countries undergoing post-war recovery and newly emerging nations.

In our own country, it has provided one of the three main sources of income for 20 of our States, and, last but not least, through its efforts to encourage more people to visit the United States, it has positively and efficiently aided us in the amelioration of our balance of payments situation.

The consistent increase in the number of visitors from overseas in the past two years reflects the efforts of your members in developing travel facilities at home and abroad for those who wish to visit the United States.

Your continued service can be of invaluable assistance to our country in a future in which travel will play an increasingly crucial role.”

Powerful words that make any Travel Agent feel proud to serve their country.

In contrast, President Barack Obama’s own words in 2011:

“One of the challenges in terms of rebuilding our economy is businesses have gotten so efficient that-when was the last time somebody went to a bank teller instead of using the ATM, or used a travel agent instead of just going online? A lot of jobs that used to be out there requiring people now have become automated.”

Strong words that could make any Travel Agent feel devastated and feel purposeless in serving our country.

The industry went through many changes, from the 60’s until now and the Travel agent, Professional Advisor, stand still loyal to their customers, regardless of the adversities, they continue being loyal to their clients, creating memories of a Lifetime.

Ready To Travel? Don’t Forget Your Travel Pillow

With time, traveling has become a part of our lives. To whatever occupation we belong we have to travel often or occasionally, people now a days also take it as a hobby and want to explore more of the world. In any case professionally or as a hobby if we have to travel we surely want it to be comfortable and relaxing so when we are ready to go to our meeting or to visit our most desired place we are fresh and energetic.

With the progress in every field of life we have thousands of options to choose from the travel accessories if we want to make our journey comfortable or even safe. Out of all these accessories, the one that is a basic necessity is the one that makes sure we are very relaxed during our flights or other travels by having proper sleep and that is a travel pillow. These pillows are specially made for the people who travel frequently. Many people are the victims of neck stiffness and headaches after a travel. Travel pillows are a nice addition to their luggage to get rid of these conditions.

Mostly these pillows are designed keeping an eye on the fact that you can’t take loads of luggage with you so they are foldable or inflatable to take less space and not only provide you with comfort but ease of packing also. Some of them are of smaller sizes to make it easy to pack and come with their own bags and straps to attach to your traveler bags.

Materials like PVC are mostly used to make these pillow, as it makes them easy to be used for beach tours and dusty places too. These are not only used in traveling but can also be used in your visits to the beaches as you take sun baths or read books, your head will be in a comfortable position. You can get custom covers for your travel pillow or can even make your own to make it more beautiful. Mostly cotton or polyester covers are used for travel pillows.

Travel pillows aren’t only used in the flights as the people who travel in a vehicle have more space as compared to people in the flights but it is generally possible to take full-sized pillows with you and full-sized pillows can’t be adjusted while traveling in vehicles. So you can buy the pillows which are specially made for this purpose, these pillows are smaller as compared to the full ones and adjustable unlike the standard pillows. These have removable covers to make them easily washable. These are small so can easily be taken to the hotel rooms and used a regular pillows, these are better option for the people who don’t want to use hotel pillows or who like to keep extra pillows with them.

After using the travel pillows they can be washed or cleaned with some anti septic spray and when they are dry they can be packed to be used for you next traveling expedition.
