About Us


Why do American Express, Virtuoso and other agencies switch to our cooperative which has been featured in Conde Nast, Luxury Travel and many other magazines? Because of the great support and marketing programs just for members and because our consortium is not owned by a corporation rather it’s owned by the members. Now you have a chance through our host agency and as an independent agent to use these great programs. But not everyone qualifies. See if you have what it takes, call us today.

    They get vacation packages right out to you. They send emails with helpful hints and let you know about travel agent rates. It's the best job I've had in 22 years!

      I have been a home based agent since 2001. I work full-time but find this a good way to supplement my income. I have always loved traveling and this gives me the opportunity to see the world while helping others find a great vacation deal. I find the management and staff to be very supportive and attentive. I have learned so much with their help. The accounting is excellent and payment is right on time. I couldn't ask for more.

        "The whole IVAR (Independent Vacation Representative) team is extremely helpful, trust worthy and fun to work with. They are always prompt to answer questions and return calls, and I never have to worry about whether my commission is actually coming. Authorized Agents is the perfect answer for someone who is thinking about running their own business from home."

          There are a lot of agencies out there that charge you hundreds of dollars to become an outside agent and they are scams. Not so with Authorized Agents. They charge you next to nothing and they are a legit company and have so many great people to help you out and give you advice. The program is exceptional and I would recommend it to anyone looking to be an outside agent.

            "Working with Authorized Agent's has been a great experience! I always loved booking trips and getaways for family and friends, but never actually got reimbursed for it. Now that I am an IVAR, I am finally getting paid for those trips! The best part is that Authorized Agents is a part of a natiowide consortium (offering incredibly low prices, and working with only the best vacation suppliers). Now complete strangers are even calling me to book their vacations!"

                I have been a IVAR (independent vacation representative) for seven years now and love it. I checked around other places first, AuthorizedAgents was the best agency that I found. The support group is great and very helpful. Also they offer training classes that you can take if you want.
