Avoya Travel is waiving its normal $495 affiliation fee for a limited time, enabling agencies to join the host for free.
The affiliation with Avoya does not have to be exclusive, so advisors can retain previous affiliations if they wish.
Avoya said its initial agreement lasts for six months. Monthly fees are $49 per month, but Avoya is waiving the first two payments for new agents. After that, within that six month period, fees will be waived for any agency that does at least $1,000 in gross commissions during the prior month.
The initiative "is designed to recognize the hard work put in by travel advisors over the past eight months" and give them access to Avoya's technology and support, senior vice president of sales Steve Hirshan said in a statement.
