See, Travel and a Tourism was my dream carrear since I finished my high school! I took a technical course to become a travel agent long time ago, but then the 911 incident happened and I saw my dream of working in the travel industry dark and unsertain due to people was afraid of traveling again or take a plane without feeling unsafe! The industry was not the good Choice at the moment and I ended up taking another major, but my heart was always thinking and wishing I could one day be part of the industry I love so much, so your BNT Agency is making my dream come true and I am enjoying every email you send me, any advice and all the training, webinars and special events registration requests, I feel like I am a real Travel Agent with the resources at hand to succeed hand by hand with you!! I appreciate the opportunity and I will take full advantage of everything you have to offer!!

I have always been interested in travel, and have spent 25 years working in different fields of the travel and travel-related industry. For the past seven years I have been cooperating with BNT Travel Group and have never felt sorry for the choice I made.
BNT Travel Group is a great hosting agency that supports travel agents at every stage of the planning, booking, payment, vacation and post-vacation process. It is a useful travel agent source of all kind of information that allows you to find the right deal and close the sale. BNT Travel Group staff is always open to share their experience and knowledge about the travel industry and sales skills.
BNT Travel Group offers very reasonable and convenient conditions (both administratively and financially) to join their travel agent team. Even though you have to pay a certain amount of money upfront, you can get it back if you follow provided directions and make minimum sales. Also BNT Travel Group offers a high percentage of commission sharing paying most of the commission to the agent who made the sale.
Another thing that I like about BNT Travel Group is that the agency offers a variety of travel agent familiarization (FAM) trips that allow the agents to experience travel locations, resorts, and other things first-hand. I went on FAM trip to Dominican Republic a few years ago, and started selling this location with full confidence right after I returned from the trip! Also BNT Travel Group pays close attention to all kind of travel seminars and trainings provided to travel agents by different vendors. Overall, I am very happy with being a part of BNT Travel Group travel agent team, and recommend everyone who is interested in a travel agent carrier to join the agency and try it for themselves.

At a very young age, I was always curious about different places and learning about new things. I’m not sure what exactly triggered the desire to travel, but once the key turned on the engine, I was more than ready to go.
My travels began with a meager move from Brooklyn, NY to Bloomfield, NJ. I was thrilled to learn about another state but I still felt restless. It wasn’t until I moved to Japan due to a job transfer, that my taste for travel went full throttle.
I literally could not believe I was in Japan. I wanted to eat Japan up in one bite! My mind was totally blown as I people watched one day on one of the most popular meeting places in Tokyo, Roppongi in front of a pink and white awning desert shop called Almond. Seeing the Geishas among businessmen and young kids with hair dyed blonde was an amazing experience. I was actually looking at the beautiful cherry blossoms on lake at an ancient palace, as well as filling up on food I never thought or even heard of before. My mastery of chopsticks became an amusement to locals as I explained to another new comer how to hold them. Checking out Japanese antiques and touring old temples were both thrilling and entertaining.
When I had the opportunity to visit a colleague in Thailand, I felt I was in paradise. The smells, the sights, the sounds, so much different than what a girl from Brooklyn, NY has ever experienced. I never thought that I would be touring the remnants of the Bridge over the River Kwai which was a favorite movie from my past. Taking a boat ride and touring the sites of an ancient king and queen, looking at a giant reclining Buddha…….. It was all quite amazing.
It wasn’t until I took a vacation to Oahu that I finally knew that I would give up all the travel in the world if I could stay here forever! The feel of the warm and gentle breezes, the smell of the ocean, the lazy swaying palm trees just filled me with such happiness. I felt like this was home. I went back to Oahu 2 more times and also once to Maui. There was no mistaking my love for Hawaii. It’s a long time dream to travel once more to Hawaii and make it my home.
Life handed me a lemon in 2017,a when, after 30 years of working in the clerical field for the Government, I lost my job. I always felt I could be doing something else I'd be more happy with until I was pushed in to making sweet lemonade with those lemons. After many trials and errors, I settled upon becoming a travel agent. Why not? I love to travel and love discussing travel and the endless activities that come with travel. Heck, if I couldn't travel much myself, I would still get that contact high from helping others realize their vacation dreams.
So it was settled. I began my business, Blue Skies Travel, LLC this past February and i haven't looked back.
I'd like to thank BNT Travel for letting me join and helping me realize my dream of becoming a Travel Agent.

I have been with BNT Travel Group for over a year and can’t imagine there’s a better host agency than BNT.
I had a bad experience with another very famous host travel agency before. I'm glad I joined BNT. Many of the host travel agencies can offer highest commissions, but not many of them can offer right training and support like BNT.
Of course the commissions are always a top priority, but it's useless (for the beginners) if you don't know how to communicate with clients, how to book, how to find the best deals.
BNT Travel truly care about you as an agent. BNT Travel is very supportive company and they focus on your success. They make money when you do!
Honestly, their vendors information, connections, commission opportunities and technology are the best in travel industry.
They always answer all questions in a timely manner and my commissions are deposited right on schedule.
I highly recommend BNT Travel Group to anyone who's looking for a great travel hosting program.

Love and Passion drive our lives.
A love and a passion to life, opportunity to learn new things and meet new people are the keys to become successful. With a Master’s Degree in Arts and 15+ years working in High Education, I wanted to start a new venture.
My love to travel and my passion to learn and explore guided me to a travel industry. I traveled a lot before becoming a travel agent. I’ve visited different countries in Asia, Europe, and of course beautiful places in the US and Canada. I always helped my family and friends to plan their vacation too; I was eager to share my experience and gain new. Joining BNT Travel Group, my new host travel agency, was a great choice and remarkable experience.
Now, I meet new people, explore pristine places and learn every day. My goal is to make people happy; to provide them with best vacation experience and outstanding service. I’m happy and excited about my journey; and I believe that travel is not a destination, it’s a way of life.

Why I became a Travel Agent with BNT Travel
After dedicating my entire life to my family, job, and school I decided that it was time to travel the world. While conducting my research, I had four questions I needed to ensure that I covered.
1. How can I travel the world without spending my entire life savings?
2. How can I make money while traveling?
3. How do I narrow down what type of travel agent I wanted to become?
4. How can I get training at a reasonable cost?
I looked at several companies that provided training and necessary means to get started, however each had a startup cost, monthly fees, and I had to bring others in under my name to have monthly fees waived. That was just too much for me to handle at that moment and I didn’t understand the benefits of paying out income if I wanted to save.
After speaking with a friend who has been a travel agent for 10 years plus told me to look into BNT travel. When I I conducted my research on BNT Travel and learned that this company has no monthly fees, no bringing others into the business to waive monthly charges, and no extra or hidden surprises, I said this can’t be true!
After speaking with associates at BNT Travel regarding my four questions listed, I knew I was in the right place. BNT Travel provided me with all the tools I needed to get started immediately. They provided me access to many companies and their back office to book clients immediately. I had to pinch myself to ensure that I was really receiving free training and the ability to make money while in training. Wait! I am able to book clients no matter where I’m located around the world? yes!. They also helped me narrow down my choice of being a agent. The question asked to me was “how do you prefer to travel? I replied that I love traveling on cruise ships with large groups such as Zumba, family, and friends. Wow, I became a cruise specialist after taking necessary training. The training is unbelievable and never ending. I am able to request all the training available to me hassle free.

I believe it’s very important to see the world and different cultures. It lets us open our minds to new things and we get to experience life in exiting different ways.
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life, relax and “recharge” our batteries. Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. New experiences increase our resourcefulness. When traveling with friends or family it creates memories for a lifetime.
Those are the exact reasons I decided to try myself in Traveling industry. I’m a medical technology analyst by degree, but I’m a traveler at heart. I’m a happily married mom of two beautiful girls. We are a busy family, but we always make time for traveling.
I love working with people and sharing my knowledge and experiences. It is incredibly rewarding to be able to find those “dream” vacations and let people build lifetime memories.
I always say: if you have some time off I suggest you take that trip and experience what life has to offer. Don’t wait or tell yourself there will be a better time to go. Take the risk, the opportunity and buy your plane ticket right now and leave. When you come back you won’t be sorry that you left, on the contrary you will be thinking of your next trip the second you come back from the airport.

My name is Elizabeth Lopez and I am proud to say I am a travel agent at one of the most amazing agencies in New York. As a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology in pursuit of my BA in International Trade Marketing, I have been able to utilize my skill set to build my website, prepare my social media accounts and brand myself as my own independent travel consultant under the name LizA Travels. As a new travel agent with BNT Travel Group I have had the opportunity to foster new relationships in the travel world, explore the options of visiting some truly amazing places and utilize my skills in advertising and marketing. One of the best bits of advice I received when I first started out, was book that first client, book a single trip and your business will simply begin to grow. Boy were they right and today as I continue to develop my brand strategies and market myself as a leading travel consultant, my client list is steadily on the rise!!
The way I look at it is, “Everyone reaches that day
where of course they’ll need a place to stay, with LizA Travels I won't just send you away, I'll find you the most amazing accommodations so you can just Namaste”
