March 3. Host agency Avoya Travel announced it will be paying additional commission overrides to qualifying independent agencies in the Avoya Travel Network based on 2020 earned commission levels. Avoya says it launched the independent agency commission growth incentive in the first quarter of 2020 to extremely positive feedback from agencies in the Avoya Network.
The incentive program was designed to reward independent agencies that generated high levels of commission growth with additional commission override payments. While several agencies were able to reach the original growth levels despite the tumultuous nature of sales in 2020 due to COVID-19, Avoya decided to lower the 2020 levels for the entire Avoya Network, resulting in significant payments to many independent agencies.
Independent agencies that were told they would be receiving payments under the new terms were thrilled at the announcement. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to make additional monies and to have the bonus income come through my own earnings and drive,” said Sheri Mruz, owner of Directions Luxury Travel LLC, a member of the Avoya Network. “Money talks, so incentives like this one are motivating for people in sales. The incentive plan allows independent agencies to set goals based on their personal performance and to monitor their progress.”
