How the Program Works

Travel professionals can join the Program for $252 a year. This cost is per single agent and accounts cannot be shared among agents. Agents may choose to apply the $252 as a credit toward offering complimentary TouringPlans subscriptions to clients. The join fee is non-refundable and is charged yearly regardless if client subscriptions are offered or accepted. Agents who know they will have higher volume can choose to pay a higher fee ($468) with lower per client subscription pricing. Any subscriptions offered and accepted over the amount of the credit are billed monthly until the end of the yearly contract. At the end of the year contract, agents may choose to pay the yearly fee again or end the contract.

About TouringPlans includes both tools and editorial content. If you're not already familiar with the site, we strongly suggest you look around before committing to entering the program. We DO NOT run travel ads to users who are logged-in subscribers that received subscriptions from an agency that is active in our Travel Professional Program. We may, however, promote our own travel agency to other visitors to the site.

TouringPlans also runs editorial content that includes links to other sites. Those sites may have sponsorship agreements with other travel agencies. We do not receive money or other reciprocal benefits from these sites and include them on TouringPlans because we feel they have value to our readers. TouringPlans does not and will not make any changes to editorial content based on our relationship with any company we do business with. Your client may read about another service or company as part of use of the subscription

All subscribers who enter trip dates on TouringPlans will receive email notifications from us of news that affects their trips. This includes discount offers for their trip dates; ticket price increases (with links to our Least Expensive Ticket Calculator, which does include links to 3rd party ticket vendors); refurbishment information; and park hour changes. Discount information often includes a thank you to the agency that provided the information and will suggest the reader contact Disney or their travel agent for rebooking to save money. We take tips from anyone who sends them and always credit the first one to reach our mailbox. You are always free to submit your own tips about discounts and other news. has a blog that includes articles written by travel agents or that mention travel agencies. TouringPlans never runs sponsored content and never accepts payment for these articles. If you have an idea for an article, you are always free to submit it. For more information about submitting articles, please email "blog (at) touringplans [dot] com" and use the subject line "Blog Article Proposal."

Terms of Use Participation in our Travel Professionals program is subject to TouringPlans' standard Terms of Use. The Travel Professionals program's Terms of Use described on this page take precedent if they conflict with the site-wide Terms of Use.

Q. I'm an independent agent who doesn't work for an agency. Can I still offer this benefit?
A. Yes!

Q. I'm a 1099 independent contractor who works for an umbrella agency. Can I still offer this benefit?
A. Yes! We'd love to bring on your whole agency too, so why not ask them first? The one thing we can't do is invoice your agency on a per-agent basis.

Q. I'm not a travel agent, but I do offer planning services. Can I still offer this benefit?
A. Yes!

Q. How is the Program priced?
A. Participation in the Program requires a minimum payment, per listed agent, of $252, which is non-refundable.

Q. Combine I offer a combination of subscriptions to my clients or does have to be all Walt Disney World?
A. The credit is good for any combination of subscriptions.

Q. Can I pay monthly?
A. The payment is invoiced all at once. There is no monthly option at this time.

Q. Do you offer a discount on personal purchases to travel agents?
A. No. We don't offer any special discount to travel agents, though we may offer discounts to the general public from time to time. A subscription costs less than a counter service meal for one at a theme park and is a tax-deductible professional purchase for a travel agent. We think that's a more than fair price for the subscription.

Q. How am I billed for the subscriptions my clients use?
A. After the credit for prepayment is used, you will be be monthly for any additional subscriptions. You can pay by check, credit card, or PayPal. Just let us know what works for you.

Q. Does participation mean I'm endorsed by or the Unofficial Guide?
A. No. But anyone who is a subscriber gets a survey at the end of his trip asking about all factors of the trip, including the travel agent. This is where the travel agent recommendations in the Unofficial Guide come from.

Q. If I do this, can I reproduce TouringPlans or Unofficial Guide content on my site?
A. No. We're very protective of our intellectual property.

Q. Can you help me promote the benefit?
A. Yes! We can give you art work and logos. We're also open to any ideas you have around cross-promotion.

Q. I'm already using my personal account to create touring plans, submit room requests, and make other recommendations for my clients. Can't I just keep doing that?
A. No. That actually violates the commercial use policy in our Terms of Use. Please don't.

Q. I have more questions that have not been answered here.
A. Reach out to us by opening a request with our Help Desk. Your question will be routed to someone who can help you out.
