    Hello All,

    I am still researching the Coastal business opportunity, specifically CSG, and it has been recommended that I also join InteleTravel to become and Independent Travel Agent. I have fully researched InteleTravel and it seems great! (especially considering I have a passion for travel and can't wait to see the remainder of the world that I have yet to visit!).

    Anyways, my question is, if we sell a Coastal package to someone, can we assist them with the bookings through InteleTravel. Similarly, can I make my own Coastal vacation arrangements through InteleTravel?

    Hi SAS78,

    You can definitely make your own arrangements through Inteletravel for yourself, as it will be one of the resources that you use for discounts. With the complimentary vacations, though, you will be working with the travel agents who are already assigned to the vendors.

    Now, if you sell a package to someone in Coastal, there are at least two reasons that I can think of that would make booking for them unlikely. First, you will using the travel agent option as a selling point for the package. So your potential buyers will know that being an affiliate agent is an option for them - which is great, because it's a really valuable asset to joining Coastal. Secondly, once they join, they will want to do their own bookings, for the same reason that you do.

    If you want to promote your ability to get people travel discounts, then I would "work it" slightly differently. Make it known to your co-workers, friends, associates outside of Coastal, etc. that you are available as a travel agent. Book as much for them as you can - and when they ask how you are able to do this, sell them the Coastal opportunity![​IMG]

    Hope this answered your questions.

    Sportsnut,
    what do you mean when you say Coastal is having problems? Coastal is doing just fine as a business. Did you mean Inteletravel is having problems?

    Sportsnut,

    There are no "problems" with Inteletravel, but I believe that Coastal is moving to Joystar as another option, possibly Funtime as well - though I will wait until I hear the announcement from the BOD/

    I have used Inteletravel for over a year and have been very satisfied with their service. If, as you say, Funtime and the BOD are working to provide a different option, then that will be just one more avenue for Coastal associates and Directors to use - all the better value for our Coastal package and opportunity!

    Well, I am definately confused. I thought Coastal was moving to Joystar...now you are saying it is Funtime?

    I, too, am looking forward to an official announcement! Please keep us posted.

    Sportsnut, what is the funtime tues and thurs call number and pin so we can listen in and ask ques??


    Thank you, and thanks again for the url of the CV/FT demo site.

    Again I have to say that the way the BOD is handling this situation with FT is horrid, and to put the FTbiz-opp right in the Coastal packages BEFORE letting us know about it is outrageous!

    Funtime distributors knew about this before Coastal directors do and that to is wrong!
