Our Experienced Travel Agent Program

If you already have experience as a Canadian travel agent or in the Canadian travel industry.

As a TPI travel agent, you’ll receive immediate and international recognition through our appointment with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and affiliations with such industry organizations as the Cruise Line Industry Association (CLIA), the Association of Canadian Travel Agents (ACTA), and provincial license registration under Consumer Protection BC (CPBC) or the Travel Industry of Ontario (TICO).
We offer:

Higher Commission Splits

Support and on-going Training are the most important differences with TPI however we also have premium level commission splits for you!

Commission splits are on EVERYTHING you sell. Not just preferred suppliers. Ask us for details.

  • “After 16 years in retail travel with three major agencies as well as TPI, I can honestly say TPI is the best to work for: they are welcoming, fair and supportive. With the amazing flexibility I have (I never have to worry about taking “time off” for a doctor’s appointment or an event at my daughter’s school) and the excellent income I’m making (double what I was making in a retail office), I would never go back!”

  • “Being new to TPI, the communication with the Business Development team has been wonderful. They have answered many of my questions and made this journey a smooth one…We appreciate their efforts to assist us in every way.” 

    Scott, Saskatchewan

  • “Being with TPI has exceeded all my expectations. After working for a well-known storefront and then another Canadian Homebased agency, I was pleasantly surprised at the operations of TPI. Adivsors are treated with respect and appreciation. I have found a true partnership with a professional company in TPI.”

    Janice, Ontario

  • “Working with TPI was been like a breath of fresh air. The back office support we have is amazing. We are never left hanging. We are always kept in the loop as to what is happening in the industry. TPI is always connecting us with suppliers to train and educate us. TPI offers wonderful rewards for our sales through the Velocity program – I just came back from Bali!”

    Debbie, Saskatchewan

  • “I worked for 15 years in a Carlson Wagonlit Travel office as office Manager and Luxury motorcoach tours prepared, coordinated and escorted by Maureen. My experience so far with TPI has been excellent. Great support team and a fabulous feeling working from home! ”

    Maureen, Ontario

  • ” I worked for Sears Travel 21 years. I have never looked back. I can’t believe it is 4 months already. I don’t know where the time has gone. I’m not a millionaire yet but soon hope to be. (lol). My experience so far with TPI has been very positive, Rhonda has been terrific. All head office people are very pleasant and easy to deal with. I look forward to another 20 years of Travel work.

  • Sharla, formally of Red

    “Since joining in June of this year, I have already discovered how refreshing it is, as an experienced agent to be able to run my business as I want to, all while having the support I need to have continued success.”

    Sharla , British Columbia

  • Aileen, formally from YYZ Travel Group

    “Making the transition to TPI has been great. It was truly what I needed to feel alive again. Head office staff has been wonderful and full of knowledge whenever I call in. Meeting other agents at our monthly meetings is great for networking, but hearing from our suppliers keeps us in tune with what is going on. So glad I made the move.”

    Aileen, Ontario

  • “I enjoyed my time working full-time at both American Express and Carlson Wagonlit Travel store-front agencies in the past, but a new chapter in my life has begun due to family obligations. Since joining TPI, it has given me the flexibility with my schedule by allowing me to continue to do what I love on a part-time basis and that is, to help my clients with their travel plans. As well, the help offered at the TPI Head Office Support Desk has been exceptional.”

    Carlena, Ontario

  • “Joining TPI was the best move I could have made, not only do I work for a company who’s reputation is highly regarded in the industry, and a name I trust. TPI understands the full dynamics of Home Based Agents and it is this support, that allows me to focus on the growth of my individual business and I might add with much success.”

    Laurie, Ontario

  • “NO ONE in the industry offers the support that TPI does. They all claim to but no one compares.”

    “You don’t get that anywhere else”

    Heather, Ontario
