In addition to Florida, Endless Summer Vacations operates
charters to Acapulco, Cancun and Mazatlan, Mexico; the Bahamas, and
Padre Island, Texas. Mark Perry, agency and group sales manager,
said commissions begin at 10% and climb to 15%, depending on the
number of passengers booked on the firm's programs. For example,
11% is earned once an agent generates 20 passengers, and 15% is
earned when 220 are reached. An agent organizing a single
motorcoach group would qualify for the 11%, he said.
The Florida trips, however, tend to draw self-drive vacationers,
Perry said, rather than air passengers because Panama City is in
northern Florida. However, it does have an airport. For air service
information, call (800) PC-BEACH. For tour information, contact
