THE Goldman Travel Group has reported strong growth in its remote-based consultant network SmartFlyer Australia, with its ranks of independent travel advisors nearing 40.
SmartFlyer recorded a 24% year-on-year increase on revenue in 2017/18, the company says, with individual advisors boosting their average earnings by 14%.
Goldman joint managing director Anthony Goldman said SmartFlyer was riding the growing trend towards travel advisors wanting to work remotely.
“By offering flexible work options, SmartFlyer Australia means we can tap into the best travel talent regardless of location – all around Australia,” he said.
“Our vast networks, industry relationships and extensive supply chain give our mobile team access to the very best premium travel products for their clients — enabling them to deliver completely bespoke holiday experiences,” Goldman said.
SmartFlyer Australia now boasts 18 preferred hotel programs and over 125 hotel “high commission deals” in its collective portfolio.
The group’s travel advisors are set to come together for a conference in Melbourne in Oct.
