How to Register for an Account on the Travel Agent Platform
Understanding account roles
The admin role is perfect for agency hosts/admins. If you set up your agency’s account, you’ll automatically be designated as an admin, but you can always add more admins to the account.
The admin role comes with special responsibilities and capabilities that the agent role will not have available to them, such as the ability to invite new agents and to add payout details.
The agent role is the ideal role for agents/advisors who will be making bookings on behalf of their clients. Agents will not be able to add payout details or invite new agents, but they will still be able to view their commission payouts and reports.
Agents/advisors will have to be invited by their admins in order to join the account. If you are an agent, please see this guide on how to join your agency’s account.
Creating your agency account
You’ll be prompted to create a password as well as to provide your name and phone number.
Now you've created your account!
Next steps include providing all the necessary information to get you started, like payout details and company information.
Setting up your agency account
You’ll be prompted to select whether you’re joining an agency or registering a new one. In this case, you’ll be creating a new agency account.
Now your initial account is set up and you are enrolled in the Viator Travel Agent Program. However, in order to get fully up and running, you’ll need to fill out your payment details, your tax details, and your company information.
Adding account settings

Now, navigate to the “Company Settings” tab and complete the Company Information if not already filled out.
