How do I find customers?

Once you have made the exciting decision to become an MTB Representative you can immediately begin sharing your MTB Travel website with everyone you know. We know that most people either have travelled, will travel or dream of travelling and by sharing your unique MTB Travel link with the world you are offering the opportunity for others to take advantage of the incredible travel saving you can offer as an MTB Representative. Invite others through social media, email, or text message to compare pricing and options and you will see your customer list grow.

Why is this better than starting my own traditional travel business?

Starting your own travel business from scratch is cost and time prohibitive. You must develop relationships with thousands of suppliers, develop a platform that delivers real time options to your customers, set up 24/7 customer support in multiple languages, ensure the options you offer are high quality, create the infrastructure to handle your growing business and so much more.

MTB offers you a patented travel platform that provides the most competitive suite of travel options and pricing on the market today. We take care of the support, quality business infrastructure and growth and we pay you substantial commissions to promote a better travel option to everyone you know.

In addition, our marketing plan allows you to build a team of travel affiliates who also build a business and you earn commissions on their sales.

Will my MTB business be competitive with other online travel businesses (like Expedia)?

As an MTB Representative you have access to top commissions, training and support, tools and technology and partnerships many host agencies do not offer. When you become an MTB Representative you receive your own easy to personalize website, and with our partnerships you can confidently offer a lowest rate guarantee.

We have various programs and incentives throughout the year, and we can only recognize the person associated with the account.

How much can I save on my travel as a customer?

The savings depend on where and when you plan to travel. You can compare our pricing with other online travel platforms such as Expedia and you will see that in most cases our pricing is lower because we offer exclusive deals.

How easy is it to book travel?

It is as simple as 1 – 2 –3!

Is there a yearly renewal fee?

Yes. The renewal fee for the Business Class Pack is $200 per year. The renewal fee for the First Class Pack is $1000 per year.

  • If you purchase your Pack during the Launch Incentive Period, you will receive the benefit of 5 years Free Renewal.

What services or products are included in the renewal fee?

The services and products MyTravelBiz Representatives need to operate their business are included in the renewal fee:  the travel platform, online travel store, the Representative back office, technology updates, payment provider system and support. 

Can I upgrade to the First Class Pack if I purchase a Business Pack first?

Yes. You have 14 days from the date of original purchase to upgrade from the Business Class Pack to the First Class Pack for only the $3,800 US difference in price.

How do I upgrade from the Business Class Pack to the First Class Pack?

You may select the Upgrade button on your MTB Rep Centre Dashboard and follow the steps to upgrade. If it is within the first 14 days after your initial purchase, you will be asked to pay the difference in price between the packages ($3,800). If it is after the 14-day upgrade period then the upgrade from Business Class to First Class is $5000.

I purchased the Business Class pack during the incentive and received the 5 Year Free Renewal. I would now like to upgrade to the First Class pack for $5000 (it is past the 14 day upgrade window). Will the remainder of my 5 Year Free Renewal still apply?

The 5 Year Free Renewal is an incentive and is applicable to packages purchased while the incentive is running. If you purchased your Business Class pack during the incentive you will receive the 5 Year Free Renewal on our Business Class Pack. Please see the scenarios below for upgrading during the and after the incentive period:

  • Purchased the Business Class Pack during the 5 Year Free Renewal Incentive and upgraded to the First Class Pack while the incentive was still running: Yes the 5 Year Free Renewal applies to the First Class Upgrade.
  • Purchased the Business Class Pack during the 5 Year Free Renewal Incentive and upgraded to the First Class Pack but the 5 Year Free Renewal Incentive was no longer running: No, the 5 Year Free Renewal will not apply to the First Class Upgrade.
  • Purchased the Business Class Pack during the Super Upgrade Incentive (First Class Benefits for the price of Business Class) while the 5 Year Renewal Incentive was also running: The Package will revert to the Business Class Package benefits at the end of the 12 months after the initial purchase and the 5 Year Renewal will apply to the Business Class Package.

If my Team Member upgrades from the Business Class Pack to the First Class Pack, do I receive the difference in LCV from the purchase?

Yes. If your Team Member upgrades during their first 14 days for the difference in price, you receive the difference in LCV.

If your Team Member upgrades after their first 14 days and pays the $5000 for the Upgrade, you receive the full 4000 LCV from the First Class Upgrade purchase.

I am in my Fast Start period and would like to upgrade. What will I receive with my upgrade order?

If a representative upgrades within their first 14 days, they will receive CV on their Left and Right teams as they are still in their Fast Start period and the representative will receive TLC rank awards. The fee for upgrading within the first 14 days is $3,800. The representative will receive one additional  Priority Pass code.

I signed up 3 months ago and would like to upgrade. What will I receive with my upgrade order?

If a rep upgrades after their first 14 days, the upgrade order is $5,000 as their Fast Start period has expired.  Since they are not in their Fast Start period, they will not receive CV on their Left and Right teams, and the upgrade order will not count towards rank promotion.  The uplines will receive LCV. If the upgrade order is $5,000 the representative will receive 2 new Priority Pass codes as well as all of the other benefits that are included in the First Class Product Pack.

As an MTB Representative, am I an employee of MTB?

No, you are an Independent Contractor. You are responsible for filing your own Income Tax. As an Independent Contractor, you may be eligible to take advantage of the tax savings of running a home-based business. Consult a tax advisor familiar with the direct sales industry for more information.

MTB Business Centre FAQs

How do I access my MTB Business Centre?

Go to www.MyTravelBiz.com and click Sign In. Enter your email address and the password you set when you enrolled to access your MTB Business Centre.

I forgot my password, how can I access my MTB Business Centre?

Just select “Forgot Password” at the login screen. You will be asked for the email address you used to create your account. You will be sent an email (to your registered email address) with a link to reset your password. Simply follow the instructions on the email.

I enrolled and clicked on my verification link in my email, it didn’t work, why?

The verification email link must be activated within 24 hours for security purposes. If you have tried to click on the link after 24 hours and received an error, please contact support at Support@MyTravelBiz.com for a new link.

What is KYC?

KYC is an industry standard term for Know Your Customer. This is a regulatory requirement to ensure your identity is verified and your information and account is protected.

Why would I change my placement rule?

Your placement rule determines where your next directly sponsored Team Representative will be placed. Your choices are Left side and Right side and the placement rule allows you to choose which leg you would like the new MTB Team Representative to join. You may also leave the setting to Automatic (this is the default setting upon joining MTB), and this permits the system to automatically add your New Team Members to the lesser team based on total active and pending CV.

It is very important that you have this rule set correctly prior to your new Team Representative joining as reversing it is difficult. If you have selected the wrong leg, it is very important that you contact Service & Support by sending an email immediately. This rule cannot be changed if the next commission close after they have joined has been completed.

To change your placement rule, follow the steps below:

In your Business Centre, Select the third icon “Placement Manager

The default placement setting is “Automatic.” If you wish to change the setting to “Bottom Right” or “Bottom Left,” click on the radio button to the left.

My new recruit joined on the wrong side. He was supposed to join on my right and ended up on my left. Can I switch this?

You may request this be changed if your request is done before the next commission close after the new recruit joined. Please send an email to Support@MyTravelBiz.com to report the error and Representative Support will contact you with the details involved in making this change. If a commission close has occurred since you added the Team Member to the wrong side, we are unable to make the change as commissions and awards will have been allocated to this new Representative’s enrollment.

When does the week close? When is the Pay Period?

MyTravelBiz’ Pay Period runs from Monday to Sunday. The week closes every Sunday at 11:59 pm ET. The compensation plan runs after a two week holding period.

Every Tuesday after the pay run, MyTravelBiz pays out all the commissions to Representatives’ Commission Account.

For example: For pay period Monday, May 1, 2017 to Sunday, May 7, 2017 the computer executes the pay run on Tuesday, May 23, 2017.

Can I transfer my position to someone else?

Yes you may transfer your MTB business to another person. Please contact Representative Support for the Transfer of Ownership form.

We will need a copy of your photo ID and that of the new owner. This will need to be emailed to our Representative Support team from your registered email address. Please note – when a transfer of ownership has been approved and completed by us, the KYC details for the new owner will be reset. They will need to be approved again. MTB reserves the right to decline any requests to change ownership of a member account.

You will need to email your MTB Representative Support team (from your registered email address.) Please send your request to Support@MyTravelBiz.com along with the Change of Details form. This form is available in your backoffice under Calendar/Documents.

How do I change my sponsor?

The integrity of the lines of sponsorship is fundamental to the organization’s functionality and success. Once an MTB Travel Rep is sponsored the Company believes in protecting his/her relationship to the fullest extent possible. However, the following exceptions may be made at the sole discretion of the Company:

(i) By terminating the Representative Agreement and remaining inactive for a period of six (6) months before re-applying under a different sponsor;

(ii) In the case of proven unethical sponsoring by the original sponsor; or

(iii) In exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the Company.

Only the Representative position will be transferred, any and all downline from the original placement will remain there.

I believe that someone else has gained access to my account. What can I do?

Please do NOT share your password with anyone. Please do NOT share your security question and answer with anyone else.
