Ensemble Travel Group is our consortium.
In travel and tourism, a consortium refers to an organization made up of independent travel agents and agencies. They join together to increase their buying power, commissions, and amenities they are able to provide clients. Agents and agencies must meet a threshold sales volume requirement in order to be invited to join a consortium. Member benefits include marketing programs, commission overrides (increases), agent training and education, FAM trips, technical tools, client referrals, and networking opportunities.
Consortia negotiate with hotels, resorts, cruise lines and other suppliers on behalf of their agent members. The resulting 'preferred supplier' relationship benefits agency clients in the form of upgrades, room amenities, and special promotions not available to the general public.
You should be logging in to your Ensemble portal at least weekly.
You may also want to sign up for their free email marketing (Travel E-zine) and newsletter (Currents e-Newsletter). These will help you stay up-to-date and promote exclusive offers that are ONLY available to our clients.
Ensemble offers an extensive online training platform called U of E, which allows you to access training for a number of suppliers all in one place. You can find this in the portal under Training & Events.
Ensemble also has an annual conference where agents and supplier come together for a few days of learning and networking. Attending the conference is at your own expense. For destinations where there is a lot of agent interest in attending, the number of agents may have to be limited.
Ensemble OneConnect is a single platform that allows advisors to access their reservations across all sales channels with just one login. Better functionality, better customer service, access to supplier reservations, and a customizable and flexible platform equals a better experience for you!
