Yes, we are happy to work with Travel Agents...
But there is a caveat.
Creating accurate, realistic expectations for the travel experience we offer is the most important job of our Bozeman office and should be the most important task of the travel agent as well. All of our trips are true adventures, where clients must expect the unexpected and be mentally flexible and easy going with other group members. To that end, we need to be in direct touch with the clients or we need to be working with a travel agent whose knowledge of the destination and conditions is equal to ours.
Working with agents who have direct experience with Mongolia, Tibet, Argentina and Uruguay and experience with the rigors of the trip in those regions, we offer a 10% commission.
Working with agents who do not have direct experience with our destinations and expeditions, we request that the travel agent allow us to deal directly with the client, handling all the details, paperwork and payments. We pay the travel agent a 5% finders fee of the land cost. The agent writes any international air tickets and we keep everyone: client, agent and our staff in the loop. This insures that there is clear communication with the client and helps educate the agent about our trips for future sales at the 10% level.
We find that agents who understand the rigors of adventure travel and who have their clients' best interests at heart, welcome the opportunity to work as a team with our staff to insure the clients are properly prepared. In the event that an agent is not willing to allow us access to the client, both the agent and the client need to acknowledge on the release of liability that they accept the consequences of miscommuncation that may result.
We will also work with travel agents on a NET fare basis, where the agent determines the amout of commission to be added to our NET fare. For groups of six or more, we are open to negotiation on commission rates.
If we already have a history of communicating directly with a client, before being contacted by the travel agent, the maximum commission is 5%.
We specialize in Mongolia travel but we also offer adventure travel to Patagonia, Uruguay, Tibet. Horseback riding was our original interest when we pioneered travel adventures to China and Inner Mongolia and Tibet. We now offer tours and travel packages of all kinds in Mongolia (formerly Outer Mongolia) including camel riding, trekking, photography, fishing, horseback riding, culture, visiting Naadam, the Gobi, Lake Hovsgol (Lake Khovsgol) and the nomadic herders of Mongolia. In Ulan Bator we have our own offices though we are not really a travel agent, but an outfitter of travel and adventure in Mongolia. If want a riding vacation; whether a horseback riding vacation, a camel riding vacation or a jeep riding vacation, we'll be glad to create a travel adventure across Mongolia for you.
In Patagonia and Uruguay remember you can combine two
adventures and do both horseback riding trips in just two weeks of travel.
A Patagonia horseback riding vacation or a Uruguay horseback riding
vacation is just the thing for beginners or experienced equestrian travelers.
An equestrain vacation, horseback riding in Patagonia, Agentina or Uruguay
or Mongolia or Tibet is a great way to have a guided adventure.
Those of you who have endured reading the awful prose just preceding are probably wondering what kind of idiot wrote it. We must confess to both a capacity for better prose and an ulterior motive in writing so badly. Search engines look for correlations between your keywords like Mongolia travel, horseback riding, mongolia tour, Patagonia, Uruguay, Tibet, Gobi.. (see there I go again) and the frequency with which they appear on your page. In this everchanging cyber world, we need to keep up, I guess. Have a good riding vacation or adventure and come for Mongolia travel.
