A Fora Advisor is someone who makes travel happen. Fora travel advisors earn by selling, planning and booking trips. They work with clients to understand their vacation needs and handle all the travel arrangements – from booking a hotel for a long-weekend to planning a honeymoon, soup-to-nuts. A Fora Advisor has access to all our training resources, including cutting-edge technology and in-house destination expertise. They also benefit from Fora handling all the commission payments, so they can get paid ASAP.

A travel agent is someone who sells, curates and books travel. They consult with clients on where to go, what to do and where to stay, and earn commission from booking hotels. (In fact, most travel agents earn the majority of their revenue from hotel bookings). In addition to planning and booking, agents communicate with hotels to ensure each trip goes smoothly. Travel agents work under a host agency, such as Fora, that handles commissions and other logistics.

We're glad you asked! There's no difference - these terms are used interchangeably. But we prefer the term 'advisor,' since our stellar community of travel planners go far beyond the typical services of an 'agent.' They act as consultants, advocates and gurus for their clients, planning travels large and small.

Some travel agents work in an office, but Fora Advisors can work from anywhere (yes, anywhere!). All you need is passion for travel, a WiFi connection and a can-do attitude - and a few potential clients in your network don't hurt either.

Travel agents earn commissions from their clients' trips usually from hotel bookings. Travel suppliers commonly pay the agent 10% of the total cost, but sometimes more (depending on the brand and type of partner). Unlike at other agencies (where advisors frequently get paid months after their client's trip), we're proud to offer the fastest commission payments in the business.

Besides it being the best job in the world? First off, being a travel agent provides tons of flexibility. Because you can work from anywhere and on your own schedule, planning travel is a great way to earn extra money as a side hustle — or, develop your business into a full-time career (#BeYourOwnBoss). You'll be hooking up your network with amazing upgrades when they travel. Become the 'friend with hotel benefits' (see what we did there…) in no time.

As with any commission structure, the more you sell, the more you earn. Travel agent paychecks depend on how much travel you're booking. For instance, if you book a family safari in the tens of thousands of dollars, your commission will be substantial. You could also get the same commission by handling one-off hotel bookings at a lower price-point, but at a higher amount. TL;DR? It's not uncommon for hard-working travel agents to earn six-figure incomes.

Got passion? Then you're ready to go! Lucky for you, there are no exams, accreditations or other hoops to jump through to become a travel agent. Anyone with solid people skills and a little spare time can succeed in their job as a travel agent. If you're new to the travel advising space, we'll hook you up with all of the training & mentorship you need to set yourself up for success.

Depends! Many travel agents work full-time, planning dozens of trips at once. Others spend a few hours a week planning travel for their friends as a side-hustle. Whether you're full time or 'whenever-I-have-time,' you can still pull in $$$ planning travel.


Yes big time. Our advisors have access to upgrades & perks at nearly 4,000 hotels, including Virtuoso, Four Seasons, Design Hotels and more. We also have exclusive partnerships with global programs like Remote Year. Learn more about our Partners.

We love this question! Unlike other training programs that require a full-time commitment and demand high booking minimums, Fora is flexible. But that doesn't mean we're hands-off (far from it). We support you every step of the way from your first booking to your 1,000th and provide you with top-notch training for everything you need. We'll help you ramp up your business (whether it's a side-hustle or a new career) with resources and tools, including our community of travel experts at your fingertips. In other words: Fora lets you do what you do best, better.

We charge advisors a quarterly subscription fee, which includes the cost of Fora’s technology platforms, training, admin and our community app. This fee is a fraction of our own technology costs and what other agencies charge as signup fees (up to $5,000 for training alone). 

Absolutely! We are ready to welcome experienced travel agents to our community.

Sign up! We'll get in touch with you ASAP about next steps, including having you complete a detailed survey on your travel style and experience. If you meet our criteria, we'll get you onboarded and show you the ropes, so you can start booking travel in no time.

To increase chances of getting off the Fora waitlist, these tips will help your application stand out: 

  • Your uniqueness matters; avoid generic phrases. 

  • Be specific about hotels and resorts you prefer. 

  • Social handles & comprehensive bio are important. 

We value your enthusiasm! You’ll receive a response within 1 week & meeting these guidelines doesn't guarantee immediate acceptance.
