What We Do for You is What Sets Us Apart


Because we are a member of our incredible Consortia, Signature Travel Network, you have access to supplier marketing and promotional materials that may be hard to come by otherwise. You also get to double-dip in any exclusive deals because you get our Host Agency benefits and our Consortia benefits. In the end, you get more, more, MORE when you are a part of our family.

Why Host Agencies Are the Bomb


We provide our Travel Planners International Rockstars with the latest and greatest technology to keep your business running smoothly and easily. Through your Agent Portal, you’ll be able to email clients, access marketing materials, complete all your bookings, and keep tabs on your accounting. Keeping you organized and productive makes you happier and more successful, and that’s awesome.


We believe the collective brainpower and experienced knowledge of our family of Rockstars is one of our most valuable assets. Our fun, family atmosphere in the office, at events, and online is unmatched anywhere else. When you become a TPI Family member, you are adopted into a successful, driven, hard-working, group of passionate small business owners who love what they do.

Sounds Great, I Want to Know More

Local Meetups

We connect you with other local Travel Planners International agents in your area at a coffee shop, restaurant, wine bar, or wherever where you can talk face to face with people just like you. Led by one of our local TPI Advocates, these small, informal meetings hook you up with Preferred Suppliers who are looking to connect with some of our Rockstars as they swing through the area.

Impact has been part of our foundation since Anthony and Marietta Gagliano founded Travel Planners International in 1988. It is in our blood to serve others; to give back to those in need of our time, talent, and treasures. This is why we lead by example and combine our efforts leading philanthropic organizations to impact the quality of travel for everyone who experiences the world through travel. We strive to inspire others to also give back to organizations that share their values.
