Avoya Travel / American Express Announces Never-Before-Seen Instant Commission Program

Independent Agencies No Longer Wait for Vendor Payments

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 7, 2011) - Avoya Travel™ / American Express®, one of the leading travel companies in North America and beyond, today announced the launch of its Avoya Travel Instant Commission™ program. Up until now, travel agencies have had to wait on vendors for weeks or months after making a booking before collecting any commission. But now, Avoya Travel's network of Independent Agencies can receive commission immediately after the booking is made.

"Avoya Travel is a family-oriented company, and with the holiday season upon us, we recognize that generosity is a trait cherished by everyone and more sooner is better," said Brad Anderson, Co-President of Avoya Travel. "With the Instant Commission program, our network of Independent Agencies is able to accelerate their cash flow to further grow their businesses and be more generous to others this holiday season."

Avoya Travel ( has always understood the importance of timely commission payments and was the first host agency to pay commissions to its Independent Agencies weekly via direct deposit, versus other hosts who typically pay bi-weekly or monthly. The Instant Commission program is another innovative step in Avoya Travel's continued commitment to its unique Shared Success model and its elite network of Independent Agencies.

"Avoya Travel continues to lead the way in creating more opportunities for my business to thrive," said Pepe Delgado, owner of DELRU, LLC, an Independent Affiliate of Avoya Travel. "Avoya Travel is constantly asking its Independent Agencies for feedback and looking for ways to help agency owners like me be even more successful, and they have hit a home run with the Instant Commission program."

Avoya Travel has received many notable accolades, including being named 'Travel Agency of the Year', by American Express, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Oceania Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, MSC Cruises, and Brendan Vacations. Avoya Travel has also been featured for its groundbreaking technology, innovative Live Leads™ program, and leadership in travel by top industry publications, including Agent @ Home, Travel Agent, Travel Weekly, TravelAge West, Vacation Agent, and more.
