Most Travel Clubs are organized on the premise of building a sizable

membership capable of negotiating discounts with various travel providers.

The Travel Club makes money earning a commission every time a member

purchases airline tickets, books a hotel room, or goes on a cruise. Today,

things have changed quite a bit.


With a swelling membership basis it is difficult for travel clubs to ignore

the profits of charging for membership, no matter how insignificant the

amount. With 10,000 members, a travel club charging only $20 a year will

earn $200,000 in membership dues. This revenue is over any commission the

Club earns when a member travels.


A Travel Club normally acts as a travel agent for the exclusive use of its

members. As an "agency", it gets standard agent commissions from airlines,

hotels and cruise lines. This can range anywhere between 10% and 18% of the

purchase price. What travel clubs usually do is offer its members a rebate

equivalent to 50% of its commission (meaning 5% to 9% of their purchase

price). If the member spends $1,000, he/she gets back anywhere between $50

and $90. This is enough reason for people to join a travel club, especially

if the membership dues are just $20 a year.


As today's market shifts from the "all-in-one" and "do-it-all" service

companies to that of "specialized" services, so do travel clubs. Based on

industry statistics, the best area to specialize in is the Cruise business,

the fastest-growing segment in Travel.



Sell memberships to your All-Cruise Travel Club and offer rebates on all

cruises and peripheral services the member books through the club. Find

products or services that you can give as bonus for signing up for a year's


You may even want to seek distributors who will purchase membership cards

in advance, at 15% of the retail price. This means that if the membership retails for $20, a distributor buys it from you for $3. If you sell 10,000

memberships this way, you've just earned $30,000. Then, add to this revenue

from commissions when members take a cruise.


The Cruise Lines International Association is a trade body representing the

interests of the Cruise Lines segment of the travel industry. Membership to

the Association is only $245 per year. The Association also has a

certification program that can bring your business immediate credibility by

being able to sell direct all-cruise packages.
