Welcome, Travel Agents

 
 

Supporting the Travel Agent

The Canadian Travel Industry - and the travel agent specifically - provide us with the support we need, allowing us to focus on providing exceptional Canadian Battlefield Tour programs around the world. 
 

We rely on you, the travel industry, to educate, inspire, and ultimately support the end traveler as they prepare for their explorations overseas, on the Canadian Battlefields. 
 

In exchange, we strive to provide agents with the following advantages & benefits: 

Our public group tours include 10% commission on our land-only tour price, per traveler booked. Pre-planned pick-up & drop off points will make it easy for you to package additional services for your traveller, such as your own air, insurance, + travel extensions

Our custom tour programs can be organized for both small and privately guided family groups, to large and private group tours, branded and marketed on your agency's behalf. Enjoy an endless array of ways your clients can experience the Battlefields, while exploring their specific interest at their own pace.

Meaningful education + resource is provided before, during, and after each of our tour programs, whether a private custom tour or a public group tour - you can expect your traveller's will receive detailed information about the meaning behind the historic sites they will be exploring on our programs.

Map kits & custom info guides are provided online to you to give to each of your travellers 30 days prior to their departure date. The kit includes all the information your traveller will require as they prepare for their journey, including pick-up points, contact information, a hotel list, a packing list, itinerary, and maps

Our programs are 100% wholesale thereby eliminating unnecessary costs, and giving us direct control over the tour programs we design. We work directly with the communities we visit on tour, as well as the tourist boards and local suppliers in-situ to create programs that speak best to your traveller's needs.

Complimentary edu talks with our team can be offered to you and your office, in-house, no matter where you're located in Canada! Organize a community lecture, a school visit, or an agency destination clinic with a member of our Battlefield Tours Team (either one of our full-time guides or tour operators).

Familiarize yourself with a FAM Trip or webinar, in an effort to learn more about how you can work with the Battlefield Tours of Canada programming. Sign up on our Fam Trip interest list, and gain free access to all Battlefield Tours Agent Support Webinars which aim to provide Travel Agents with tips & tricks to selling the Battlefield Tours . 

Agent Commission Structure

COMMISSIONS VS. NET PRICING 

If you're looking at one of our Battlefield Tour Public Group Departures, a standard 10% commission on the total land price per person is included on sticker pricing found in both print and online circulation.

 

If you are looking at organizing a private group or fully independent battlefield itinerary, a NET rate or flexible commission structure can pre-arranged to suit your needs. 

Please note, our single-supplement rates are always provided at NET cost and do not include any commission to agents - this is to encourage single travellers to join the program.

Single Supplement = 0% commissions

The Battlefield Tours is a proud product of Connection Custom Travel Wholesale Tours

 

 

Hello, and thank you for registering your traveller to join us on one of our Battlefield programs!
As a travel agent, let's review some of your next steps and pertinent information:


We require a $300 non-refundable security deposit to secure your traveller's space on tour. Should you require air and insurance through us as well, a $500 non-refundable security deposit is required and handled through our host agency, DH Tour, and a reduction in your commission may apply. 

Payment via agency cheque, wire transfer, or bank transfer to our wholesale operations "Connection Custom Travel" is preferred - all credit card payments are processed via our host agency DH Tour - and are subject to an 8% surcharge (3% merchant fee + 5% administrative surcharge)

 

Our starting commission with travel agencies is 10% on land only pricing - we do not offer commission on our single supplements as we provide all of our single supplement at NET rate, in an effort to make the opportunity more available for solo travellers!
 

Once you've registered your traveller with us, Connection Custom Travel Inc., our team our wholesale name (www.connectiontours.ca), will issue you a pro-forma invoice before asking you for the payment of your traveller's security deposit. 

 

Their final payment is due by 60 days prior to the traveller's departure date.
Travel Medical insurance is required to travel on all of our programs.

 

If you have any questions, or would like to set up a direct payment with us, please contact
