Everyone in the travel industry is having to tighten their belt during this time. It’s an unfortunate side effect of surviving a global pandemic that has grounded airline fleets and closed international borders. However, it’s also important for companies to keep their word, which is why Goway is continuing to pay commissions according to guidelines established prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a recent open letter, the newly formed ACTA COVID 19 Travel Agency Leaders Advisory Committee recommended that travel companies need to adjust to the income shortfall caused by the pandemic and cease delaying payment of commission to travel advisors until the date of departure. As a fellow group of travel professionals, we understand the importance of this recommendation and are happy to confirm to our travel partners that we continue to pay commissions upon full payment and not at time of departure, as per our standards prior to the pandemic. We continue to support our travel agent community and offer competitive advantages to making travel dreams come true with Goway.
This commitment combined with our Book with Confidence Program emphasizes how much Goway values not only our globetrotters, but also our partnership with our fellow travel professionals. It’s a trying time for our industry, but we remain committed to doing our part to keep business going and help agents remain competitive.
