Express Travel Group has unveiled some major news today; they will be launching a new business model to accommodate the industry’s fast-growing Mobile Travel Agent sector.

“italktravel & cruise at home” was unveiled to italktravel & cruise franchise owners today ahead of Express Travel Group’s annual owner-managers conference in Bangkok.

By joining italktravel & cruise at home as a Mobile Travel Advisor, agents can enjoy the flexibility of working from home, in-store or anywhere.

Advisors will have a direct relationship and mentor with a current franchisee store owner, whilst Express Travel Group manages all back-end financials.

This gives mobile agents the freedom to focus on what they do best – delivering exceptional travel experiences to their clients.

Express Travel Group Executive General Manager Ari Magoutis said “the travel industry landscape is continually changing and Express Travel Group is dedicated to adapting with this change”.

“This model facilitates the growing demand for agents who want to work outside normal business hours, in an environment that suits them, and also serve their customers at a time that suits their client”.

Express Travel Group said being family owned and operated with more than 30 years’ experience in the Australian travel industry was a bonus for mobile agents.

Ari said this meant advisors would be joining a member-driven community of like-minded travel professionals.

“With uncapped earning capabilities and the choice of two earning models, Advisors have access to all of the support and backing of a national franchise with the flexibility to work the hours they want,” he said.

“This is a very exciting time for the italktravel & cruise brand, we now provide a flexible franchise option where agents can join us as a fully branded franchised bricks and mortar store, or join us as a Mobile Travel Advisor”.
