How and when will I get my commissions?
When a travel agent makes a booking for their clients, most tour operators and other vendors (e.g. hotels and car rental companies) pay commissions to the travel agency (not to the agent) after the clients complete their trips. Some cruise lines pay commissions after the final payment is made. Once we've received your commissions from vendors, we direct deposit it to your bank account.

BNT Travel Group pays commissions to all agents regardless of their status and loyalty with BNT Travel Group once at the end of each month if the total in agent's commissions for the month sum up to $100 or more. If commissions are less than $100 at the end of the month, and you don’t qualify to get paid due to being under the minimum amount, the commissions automatically rollover to the next month and get paid once you have reach an adequate amount.
