A host agency that helps you achieve your unique goals.
As a travel advisor do you feel...
- Isolated from a community?
- Concerned your brand and goals are unsupported?
- Stuck on a business hurdle without help?
- Frustrated you’re giving away all of your upside?
- Lost on how to hire assistants or IC’s?
- Bored with your host’s lack of innovation?
As an independent contractor, you’re an entrepreneur — but traditional IC models aren’t aligned to address those specific needs. Industry norms position you without guidance toward growth and leave you assuming all the risk without benefiting from the full reward. It’s time for a change, not only in the travel industry, but in how you do business as an advisor.

So what makes Epperly so different?
Epperly Travel is dedicated to modernizing the traditional host agency structure. We tackle the three greatest challenges advisors face today: lack of community, lack of clarity and an abundance of cages. What does this mean for you?
Stop existing on an island. With an established virtual culture, you’re instantly plugged into our community, centered around a core mission: to be gracious travel industry citizens. Together.
Don’t settle for one-size-fits-all guidance. When you have clarity on your path and your goals, you don’t have to navigate these hurdles alone. You’ll receive mentorship from a team who has tackled the plateaus that naturally occur throughout your career.
The traditional host model is designed for the company to reap the benefits of your production, placing you in a cage and capping your upside potential. That all changes with our Upside Commission Structure. It’s time you reaped the upside of your potential.

It’s time for a change. Epperly’s Upside Commission Structure is designed to support you at all stages in your career by allowing you to capitalize on your own upward momentum. We are happy to discuss our commission structure one-on-one with advisors interested in joining our community.
