You and the people you know


are going to travel anyway,
doesn’t it just make sense to…
get paid on that travel?
make a substantial amount of your
personal travel tax deductible rather
than paying for it with after tax dollars?
travel as an insider, with potential
perks and benefits, rather than as an
outsider?*
WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO
THROW MONEY AWAY FOR NO
REASON?

The YTB Business
So unique, it’s two businesses!
Opportunity
The YTB companies offer two unique and
powerful business opportunities, that of
an online travel agency (RTA) and that of
an independent marketing representative
or (Rep). The travel agency opportunity
has an initial fee under $500 and a
monthly license
fee of $49.95. There is no fee or travel
agency purchase required to become a
Rep. You
may choose to participate in one or both
opportunities.

FAM Trips
FAM Trip (Familiarization Trip): Many
resort areas, cities, tourism boards,
properties, and vendors offer deeply
discounted trips to Travel Agents to
familiarize them with their
location. These trips are offered as
“Perks and Courtesies” to travel
professionals at the sole discretion of
the host. They are usually limited in
availability. There are generally
hundreds of FAMs at any given time.

The following are examples of recent


FAM trips experienced by RTAs…
