We are very selective and look for beach vacation specialty agents with experience with VAX Vacation Access and/or the Apple Vacations Online system. We want to be affiliated with high energy, positive travel professionals. Experience with Destination Weddings and Groups is also a big plus.

There is a non-refundable fee of $199 upon approval of your application. There is an annual re-activation fee of $100. The initial fee covers set-up, your first order of business cards and 150 customized $50 off Travel Certificates.

Can I be a member of another organization or affiliated with another travel agency?

No. Multiple affiliations are not allowed.

What is the process for me to join Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates?
Joining Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates is easy! Call us at 877-404-4228 to get started. Once we discuss your background, interests, receive your references, and determine that there is a fit, you will receive an affiliate agreement with 3 business days. Once signed, it takes about 7 business days to create your e-mail account, order business and get you set up to book in VAX and the other supplier systems.

Why do I have to provide references?

This is an important way for us to ensure that the individuals that join our group are in strong standing with their clients and suppliers. Three references must be provided with two coming from existing clients and one from a supplier.

When are my commissions paid?
Individual commissions received in the calendar month will be paid to you by check on the 15th and 30th of the month.

How does Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates know which bookings are mine when my clients book through the Sunsational Beach Vacations website?
If you have a client that you know booked their trip online, please alert us via e-mail. In addition, at the time of booking, a thank you message is generated to each client and they are asked; “Prior to booking your trip online, did you receive advice or any service from a Sunsational Vacation Specialist? If so, who? Finally, each month, a list of the clients who booked online will be shared among the affiliates. If someone on the list is your client, all you will need to do is indicate that.

Can I keep my agency name when I become a Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates agent?
Yes and No. We just require that you use the Sunsational Beach Vacation name as a part of your business name and the proper e-mail address.  This important as the business name needs matches the website, the client invoices, documents and the supplier profiles.

Can I use the Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates name in advertising and communications to consumers?
Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates members may use the Sunsational Beach Vacations logo or name in consumer-directed marketing. You must, however, represent yourself as an independent affiliate of Sunsational Beach Vacations in all client and supplier interactions.  

Do you have access to a GDS to book and issue airline tickets?

At this time, airline tickets are not a major factor in our business and we do not subscribe to a GDS. If at some point, the need is great enough, we would consider it. Right now, however, the efficiency and profitability is in selling vacation packages.

Do you provide Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance?
Sunsational Beach Vacations carries insurance to cover E &O issues. As you are an independent contractor, you should have your own coverage to ensure you are protected on all of your travel bookings. We highly recommend our affiliates obtain Errors and Omissions insurance in their name for their personal protection. However, E & O insurance is not a requirement to join Sunsational Beach Vacations Affiliates.
