Working with Exotic Estates as a Travel Agent

In order to work with Exotic Estates as an agent and receive commissions on client bookings, we will require you to provide information on your agency, including your IATA number, prior to making bookings. We will then use this information to add you and your agency to our reservation system. A W9 from your agency will also need to be forwarded to our Accounting Department prior to any bookings being confirmed; commission will be paid in the name of your agency and the agent associated with the booking will be noted. Commission is paid on base rental fees collected, exclusive of taxes and fees.

Exotic Estates reserves the right to adjust the terms of this program at any time. Only verifiable IATA agencies in good standing are eligible to participate in this program.

More About Exotic Estates

Exotic Estates offers a boutique collection of fine vacation homes and villas. We strive for quality over quantity and specialize in Hawaii, our home base since 2006. In the years since launching our service, we have expanded our collection to include quality vacation homes in other places, including the Caribbean, the ski slopes of Utah and several other cherry-picked destinations.

Unlike other large operators who are indiscriminate about the homes that they represent, Exotic Estates is consciously a boutique business, focused only on representing quality vacation homes that we know will meet the needs and demands of the most discerning travelers. Quality control is of paramount importance to us, and is our greatest value proposition that we can deliver both travel agents and their clients.
