Voluntourism & Travel Agents?

I recently had a travel agent ask me which voluntourism operators gave commission to agents and to be honest I didn’t have an answer for her. Traditionally working with travel agents seemed too ‘mainstream’ and commercial for such a niche section of the travel market – but things have changed.

As more and more stories are written up in outlets like CNN and the NY Times travelers are now asking their travel agents for volunteer vacation information, if you’re not offering commission to agents I think you’re missing a very obvious recruitment channel.

I know Cross Cultural Solutions doesn’t offer commissions and i-to-i does (or used to) – so where does your company stand?
