Commission

This is obviously an important area to consider. Generally homeworking companies offer homeworkers between 20%-50% of the net commission that is earned on every booking the homeworker makes. While it is easy to compare the headline commission percentages, it is just as important to ask about the average value of the holidays booked and the commission deals that the homeworking company has with the operators. You don't have to be a brain surgeon to realise that you have to book four times as many £500 holidays to make the same money as you do on a £2,000 holiday!

At Holidaysplease the basic commission starts at 25% and rises to a generous 45% depending on the total value of holidays you book per month. For bookings that you bring from your own clients, the commission is 50%.

At Holidaysplease we have a very high average booking of around £4,500 with about 13% gross commission. This will net down to around 11%.

Our commissions with the operators are some of the best around because we are members of the Independence Group. The Independence Group is operated by Hays Travel who are the largest independent travel agent in the UK. As well as being ABTA bonded we also are ATOL licensed by the Independence Group so you can dynamically package if you wish.

So a homeworker on the 25% commission level can expect to earn around £120 on the average booking, whilst a homeworker achieving our top sales target in a month and achieving 45% commission will earn around £220 per average booking. Remember if the booking comes from a customer the homeworker has generated for themselves then it is 50% commission which is a whopping £247 per average booking!

Suggestion: Work out the number of bookings that you think you could do a day and see how £120-£247 a booking compares to your current salary.

Hidden costs

This is another important matter to consider as it doesn't matter how much commission you are earning if you are getting hit with lots of hidden extras!

Typically homeworking companies charge a setup fee of £300-£700 and a monthly administration charge of up to £70. In addition, some companies insist that their homeworkers pay for certain other expenses such as business cards, letterheads and telephone calls.

Also, some companies which quote high headline earnings often don't mention the fact that these homeworkers are team leaders with the salaries of their team to pay!

At Holidaysplease there is no joining fee!

When you come on board with Holidaysplease we will ask you for a £387 bond. We will refund your bond in full if, in the first eight weeks of your time with Holidaysplease, if you generate £1,500 of net commission from your 50 enquiries. In short, based on the usual Holidaysplease average booking value of £4,500, if you convert just 10% of your first 50 enquiries at a margin of 10% you will get your £387 back!

You will require a telephone line and broadband service at your home to use for Holidaysplease work purposes. If you wish to keep your own residential call package then we will pay you a credit of £30 per month towards the cost of this. Alternatively, you can opt to take our phone line for a fee of £14.50 per month to cover all of your call costs.

Holidaysplease provides you with a telephone, stationery (letterhead, business cards etc..), access to our booking systems, unlimited free training, free administrative support, free business phone calls and as many leads as you can handle!

There are no other charges or hidden extras.
