But don't just take it from us, have a look at what our Agents are saying......
"I became an agent with Independent by Flight Centre because I was dissatisfied with my previous company support and commission structure. I wanted a recognized name with professional qualities and a chance for further training. Joining Independent by Flight Centre is the best move I've made. There is continuous learning available and lots of feedback from all levels of management. Wonderful, wonderful."
"I have been working with Independent by Flight Centre for 5 years now and I am extremely happy about my decision. Not only am I a part of an agency that has worldwide connections, I am getting paid for virtually everything I do and the Flight Centre brand name means something to my clients. It was agonizingly difficult for me to make the decision to go from a standard 9 to 5 job in a traditional agency to being my own boss and work from home, but in hindsight, it was the best decision I could have ever made. My take-home-pay has doubled, and I now travel at least 3 times a year."
"Independent by Flight Centre allows me to offer my clients a deeply personalized experience as a small business, but with big business prices, offers and promotions. I love being close with my clients and still being able to offer them the great deals that a larger agency would. The support from everyone at Flight Centre has been an incredible foundation for the services I offer."
