The contract term are 1 year for experienced agents.

If you want to BECOME a travel agent (so have never been a travel agent before), there are 3 program options: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Independent contractors in this program earn between 50-95% commission. The contract term is two years. The Travel Agent Next Door program fees for new agents (which are paid prior to starting the program) begin at $1,699 for the Bronze plan and jump to $7,499 and $12,499 for the Silver and Gold plan respectively. Payment plans are available for the Silver and Gold programs (12-months and includes some interest).
