Sign your contract and get started
Once you've completed your interview and decided you're ready to start, you'll sign your contract.
After your contract is signed and your annual dues are paid, it's time to start getting things set up. You'll start with the basics of your email, and from there, you'll be able to start registering with all our travel partners. We'll show you the ropes to help you get off the ground until you're ready to run.
Our preferred travel partners include Vacaya, Virgin Voyages, Celebrity Cruises, Pleasant Holidays, and more. We have partners around the globe to ensure your clients have fabulous vacations.
As you're getting things set up, you'll get one-on-one mentoring to walk you through the basics of working with clients, using Rainbow Getaways' tools, and helping narrow down the niche that you'll want to work with.
Create your online presence and get your first inquiry
While every business starts with our family and friends as our clients, to succeed long-term, you'll want to have an online presence that builds the Know-Like-Trust for you as a Rainbow Getaways Advisor.
That starts with your page on the Rainbow Getaways website, but from there, you can build out your identity on social media, create a landing page, and more. Not sure where to start? We'll give you the building blocks with our brand colors, logo, and mentoring for the best approach that fits the type of travelers you'll be working with. For those just starting in the travel industry, we'll create a marketing game plan to help kick things off in the right direction.
Once you're set up with our travel partners, you'll be ready for your first inquiry. Whether this is starting small for a quick weekend getaway or jumping in headfirst into a full-week vacation, we're here to help you build out your first proposal.
Work with your first traveler
One of the most exciting times for you as a new advisor is preparing your first travelers for the vacation you've spent hours planning. In the weeks leading up to the departure day, we'll walk you through the "extra" things we do to ensure our travelers have amazing vacations.
As you get more familiar with our travel partners, you'll find the ones you prefer to work with for your niche and build relationships with business development managers. These relationships will help your business grow and provide even better experiences for your travelers.
You'll get paid up to twice a month from Rainbow Getaways. Depending on the travel partner, you can expect to receive your commission via ACH direct deposit as early as the next payday after your client departs.
