So you probably read that takeabed PRO is turning people into a travel agent but…
What is takeabed PRO?
It’s a subscription model that once you sign up, you automatically become a takeabed travel agent; with the possibility to earn money by recommending hotels to anyone around the world.
takeabed is the only company in the world that:
- Pays you up to 30% on the total price. Meaning, if you sell $500, you earn $150 ; or if you sell $3000, you earn $900 -in one single sale-. It is that simple!
- Gives you full control. We allow YOU to adjust your earnings to match your client needs. What this means? If they find a cheaper price somewhere else, you can still adjust your earnings and have a happy customer.
Also remember you can use PRO rates for yourself, meaning you can get up to 70% OFF from the market rates.
takeabed is changing the way hotels are booked!
Does it have any cost?
We have 2 memberships for takeabed PRO: Monthly ($25 dollars) and Annually ($180 dollars).
Both memberships have a FREE TRIAL.
- 15 days free trial for the monthly
- 30 days free trial for the annually.
Do I need any training or specific skills?
No, there is no need to be trained. The App itself is easy to use, you just make a booking like you always did with other online platforms.
Indeed, when you travel you’re already doing a lot of work by planning, searching deals, researching and booking for yourself or others in different travel web pages, you are basically a do it yourself travel agent. For the first time, your booking is valuable. You can consider it as a job because takeabed pays you for doing this.

How is this possible?
takeabed brings you access to unpublished prices (wholesale rates) that are not available to the general public; this basically means you will access rates that you will not find in any other travel website as these are wholesale rates.
In the travel industry of today, most of the profits go to the big corporations or middlemen that are between the hotels and the end-consumer. However, with takeabed this is different as they go directly to the source and shares all these profits with their agents.
takeabed is the first travel company with a share economy model. We are giving the power back to the people.
Why 2 apps and how they work together?
As a PRO agent, you have your own Agent App where you can search for the best hotel deals and even adjust your commission (earnings). But, how would you share and sell hotels to your customers? Would you have to have their credit card details? or you would need to meet them to make the transaction? Well, the answer is no and that is why takeabed created the “guest by takeabed app”.
The guest app was securely built and design so the customers can easily book the agent recommendations, whenever they want and from wherever they want. Also, once they book the selected hotel they have customer support service access from the app as well as an in-app voucher they can use to check-in at the hotel without the need of printing the voucher.
So, from you takeabed App you will search for the best deals to your customers and adjust your commission if necessary. The only thing you need to know from your customer is their “guest ID” that they can find inside the app once they create the account. This traveler ID will be used by you to share recommendations and hotel deals.
The only thing you need to know from your customer is their “guest ID”…
When the customer completes the booking from the guest app, the commission is reflected in the PRO agent’s account. Is that simple!
As a quick note – Agents can also pay their own hotels from the same agent application.

takeabed highly recommends you to promote yourself and tell everyone about your amazing deals.
Some tips takeabed gives you are:
- When starting out they recommend you start with the people you know. We all know someone who travels or friends who know people that travel.
- Starting with your circle will allow you to practice and convey the amazing deals you have to offer. Furthermore, remember the greatest thing is that you can save your friends, family and network money… once they know that, they will start spreading the word.
- Create content that tells everyone what you can do for them (videos, post or images). Just remember to be creative, you know your audience best so create content they will relate to and like.
- Connect and network with the travel community. Use forums, facebook groups, and local meetups to connect with people who travel.
- Also this is a work for yourself app, so think of takeabed as your business. Innovate by running your own ads to find more leads and target people searching for travel deals online. For example, ads services provided by Facebook | Instagram | LinkedIn | Google | Yelp
- Call, email and do face to face connection with potential customers. Remember doing follow-ups will help and don’t forget to ask for reviews on Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
