Travel Consultant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 14, 2018
Good company to work for if you want to travel a lot. Love the people I work with and I like meeting new people every day and to be able to make their travel dream come true . Great company get together's and parties. Fun yearly conferences and familiarize trips to participate in. Commission can be very good depending on the sales month. Down fall sometimes hard to make sales when business is slow. Management comes down hard when we do not meet the sales expectation for the day.Also we should get more annual salary.

The job started out great but quickly turned sour when Coworkers sabotage and steal clients from you, all the while spreading negative untrue comments to management. No work life balance. Short breaks.
TRAVEL CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – Warwick, RI – November 13, 2018
Working for Liberty Travel was incredible. The support you receive from colleagues and corporate is amazing. Even when starting off, you always have access to support if ever you find yourself stuck or confused. The job can get to be quite frustrating at times, but if you keep organized and aren't afraid to reach out and ask for help when struggling, you will find that there is no lack of support. And at the end of the day, when your client is happy, you find that all of that hard work you put in was not in vain.
Management has grand dreams of things to advance the company, in reality, it is a sinking ship that is afraid to spend money to grow. The morale in the office is bad and turnover is frequent. In a world of internet booking websites, it's only a matter of time before this company dies a slow and painful death.
Company BBQs and wine/beer at your desk. Large break room with video games.
Travel Agent (Former Employee) – Natick, MA – September 11, 2018
This company is a sinking ship. They do not know how to market, nor who they really want to market to. Very few people use travel agents, these days, but they really still are a valuable asset to have if you are using one. The problem is, Liberty is more concerned about focusing on marketing destinations to people, rather than marketing the value of hiring a travel agent.
Being an agent is pretty frustrating, as people often tend to use you like a library. They come to you for advice, and then simply book your recommendations on their own.
This company is big on drinking and partying. They host frequent "buzz nights" which are pretty much just how they sound. Newbies are given shots at their first buzz nights. They do host annual balls, both national and international. The best agents get to travel internationally.
Overall, the company seems to be a sinking ship, and that's why I got out ASAP. One other thing: you rarely get to travel. Occasionally, you'll get to go on fam trips. FOr the most part, though, you're stuck at your desk ad a mediocre job.
Great party culture, if you're into that
Failing company with luck-of-the-draw commissions and unrealistic goals
Diverse, Engaging, Challenging” The opportunities are fantastic and the company offers great benefits and incentives to their employees. The hardest part of the job is trying to reach the target established by management. The most enjoyable part of the job is dealing with the customers.
Travel Consultant (Former Employee) – King of Prussia, PA – August 17, 2018
Party culture. Terrible management. Offers a lot of training for novices. Hard to meet sales goals w/o strong clientele. Won’t really make any money until you hit 35% commission or Europe FIT bookings or river cruises. Great travel benefits. High turnover rate. Poor team leadership and effort makes a toxic work environment.
Travel Consultant (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – July 20, 2018
The initial training is pretty extensive and fun. Learning about different cultures and countries while working at Liberty Travel is invaluable. The benefit of travel is fantastic. Overall the company has very fun and driven people.
Great place to learn, travel, have fun
Not for everyone, can be stressful is you are not sales driven
Liberty travel does vacations for customers all around the word. They use every vendor out there which can make it difficult to narrow down and work with.The company is world wide which does give the oppertunity to travel to places you other wise my not get the chance to. Due to some customers there are many times when you stay after work or feel you need to work from home.
Chances to travel however it is working trips
Company rules don't carry well from store location to location.
Travel Agent Consultant - Call Center (Former Employee) – Englewood, NJ – July 5, 2018
Liberty travel was an amazing place to work, everyone was happy. They had an unlimited commission structure, with many rewarding types of incentives and fam trips. They had a great training class and teachers and were always willing for you to go out and experience the world and travel it.
Very competative work place but supportive as well
Manager, Travel Agent (Former Employee) – Staten Island, NY – June 25, 2018
In my years as becoming a travel agent it was a great start to my career. Liberty Provided me with training to be able to advance my career further. It was a very stressful job at times as you were working on commission.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Mount Cobb, PA – June 15, 2018
Not high pay but a good job. Fast at time but when not in a rush you are making sure the store looks nice and there is fresh coffee at all times. The day does go by fast so it wont feel as its taking forever.
Travel Consultant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – May 21, 2018
I enjoyed working with clients to plan their vacations. It was a very busy environment and what I learned there is you have to be very organized in order to keep up with all aspects of the business.. The hardest part was if there was stormy weather in the locations a clients was traveling. The most enjoyable part was when the client was happy, enjoyed their travel and wanted to re-book with me.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Weymouth, MA – May 9, 2018
Liberty Travel has changed since I began. For the last three years they have become more interested in Facebook at work and three times a day check in for numbers sold than the client experience. There was no work life balance for the management.
