Fly Like a Travel Agent – Triple T Week 1

Has anyone ever heard of a fabulous little company called InteleTravel?

They once only provided deals and specials to travel agents, but have now expanded their services to offer discounts to all customers. So now budget-minded world travelers, like you and me, can receive all of the discounts and benefits of a travel agent.
Here’s a little secret. InteleTravel does not advertise, and is still largely unknown to the general public. Through their program a passenger can book his own flights at steeply discounted costs, as well as find amazing vacation deals for himself and his friends and family.

Once you register, you will have access to
– $100 off domestic flights
– Up to 80% off published rates
– Up to 80% commission for booking online
– Free upgrades on car and hotel rentals
– Insider deals on vacation packages and cruises
– Tax advantages

Sound too good to be true? Well…there is a small catch. (Come on you guys – nothing in life is free!!)

InteleTravel has a one-time fee of $199.00 plus a $9.95 monthly access fee, plus a one-time fee of $7.95 (for your referral travel agent card). So, is it worth it?

I don’t know…

I only learned of InteleTravel recently and have not made the decision to join the program. I am, however, seriously considering it. You can search past deals to see if there is anything you like, but you can’t search current specials or check flight prices until you join. They have a 3 day money-back guarantee (generous, no) so if you don’t see anything you like, you could cancel your membership.

Bottom line. With prices from “this” home to “that” home consistently hitting the $1,000 mark, what have I got to lose? Well, besides $199 + $9.95 a month + $7.95??

  1. Sounds interesting, but I’ve never heard of this program. It does sound too good to be true, but do tell if you join.

  2. Well I just took my last trip for the summer (sigh). We went river rafting last week in North Carolina with a group of old friends who are now spread all over the country. We stayed in cabins and it was soooo fun!

  3. Nadine. I am pretty sure it is a legit company. My concern is that by living here in no-man’s land, P and I won’t be able to take advantage of the savings. I think I am going to try it for three days. I will let you know.

    Rebecca – Welcome back! You let me know what you think abotu this website and I’ll let you know if I try it!
