Rovia Travel is a 27-year-old ARC/IATAN travel company with offices in Greenville, South Carolina and Executive offices in Plano Texas. Rovia introduced to the marketplace an opportunity and concept that combines the positives of traditional travel agencies service, dot com technology and host agency opportunity while eliminating the negatives that have caused many travel agents to consider where the future of travel industry is going and how will the travel agent survive.
In November 2008 Rovia launched their “hybrid” agency business model offering a
business concept that no other travel provider or “host” travel agency has
offered to date. Rovia is combining training, technology and opportunity with
support, as the future business model for displaced traditional travel agents.
As the next generation of travel agents emerges with this new business model,
Rovia will become the leader in the travel industry.
The visionaries of Rovia have a business plan and goal to become the leader in the ever-changing travel
industry. The concept of the “hybrid” agency will not only offer future travel
agents a home with an unlimited business opportunity, but will provide customer
incentives, rewards and excellent service levels to assure that customers are
retained and will ultimately develop a loyalty to the Rovia travel agent. With
the development of Internet websites the traditional storefront agency has
largely become a mere memory of the way traditional travel was arranged in the
past. However, Internet bookings are far from ideal as the consumer is left
alone to sift though hundreds of websites, searching thousands of offers in an
attempt to find their ideal leisure vacation. Rovia is on the forefront of
offering a “hybrid” option that combines high-tech with high-touch to create an
incredible opportunity for both consumers and travel agents.
The Rovia home-based travel agency system is designed for anyone wanting to earn income
from the sale of travel, by simply contracting with Rovia at one of three levels
of participation. Rovia offers an entry level position, the Leisure Travel
Consultant (LTC) role, which provides the LTC tools and support to market and
promote travel using Rovia’s state-of-the-art technology, without being
responsible for processing the travel quote or handling final travel documents.

The next available position is that of “Booking Travel Agent”
(BTA) which is designed for those agents interested in becoming more involved in
the booking process and earning higher commissions. Rovia requires that the BTA
have certain levels of travel industry training or related experience, as each
Rovia BTA is required to pass related travel industry coursework and exams prior
to participating in the booking process or contacting vendors. For anyone who is
new to the industry, Rovia offers college level accredited travel courses which
can be accessed through Rovia’s training curriculum. Click here to learn more
