No, we welcome new and experienced agents. We have all the tools you need to be successful as a travel advisor new or experienced.
If you have a passion for travel and willingness to grow your own business, you’re a perfect fit for Pickles Travel Network!
We like to break things down into three areas. Business Essentials are the core systems and software you’ll need to get your agency up and running, and these are included at no extra cost with your PTN membership. Network Perks are the optional add-ons like marketing resources and extra training that you can purchase at a discount any time if you’re a PTN member. And our personal favorite, Agent Resources are the complete (and growing!) bank of educational and training resources that we provide to you to support you in growing your travel business. These include seminars led by our Pickles Vacations team, guest experts, and recorded Q+A calls for PTN members only. Learn more about what’s included with your membership here!
Instant access to PTN portal and full access in up to 5 business days

When you enroll with suppliers, you must use PTN’s codes to receive a commission from us. Want to sign up for your own CLIA or IATA numbers for exclusive travel benefits? See below.
The IATA/IATAN ID Card is the industry-standard credential to identify bona fide travel professionals. Key benefits include access to concessionary incentives from industry suppliers. Just added, the IATA MemberPerks program provides cardholders with daily savings at over 300,000 merchants across North America.
To be eligible, you must be registered with IATAN under PTN’s IATA number 45769253, working a minimum of 20 hours per week and earning a minimum of $5,000 per annum in commissions. You’ll need to send PTN a support ticket asking for approval. Once approved, we will send you a PRIN # to allow you to register with IATAN and ask for an ID card.
Obtain a CLIA EMBARC ID for travel discounts and FAM (Familiarization) trips. Join CLIA as an Individual Agent Member, under Pickles Travel Network CLIA #00032299.
Once you’ve registered, submit a support ticket to let us know, and we will approve your registration.
If you are a Careers on Vacation student or graduate, completed a similar training course, or are an experienced agent, you may be eligible for an alternate membership plan without access to the Travel Professionals Training Kit.
