Through this global pandemic, Flight Centre Travel Group South Africa has established a growing need to create a new independent offering, to help many local independent agents, looking for a secure and reputable home. Flight Centre, which celebrates 26 years of operation in South Africa, has long had its private independent home known as Flight Centre Associates, which pays 75% commission levels in the market. The brand has successfully grown to over 170 strong independents over the years.

Looking ahead, the company believes there is a new gap in the market, to create an added offering which provides 100% earn and financial security to existing travel entrepreneurs who want their business independence. The model operates under Travel Associates, a well known global premium brand, powered by Flight Centre Travel Group which provides secure ticketing and content distribution services. As we start reimagining a world where travel borders reopen, we invite you to be part of the sustainable journey together.

Our two unique independent offerings have an innovative approach to the fastest growing segment of the travel industry.
