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.
You’ll be prompted to enroll as a travel agent or enroll as an affiliates. In this case, you will enroll as a travel agent by clicking on the “Get Started” button in the travel agents section.
Since you are setting up your agency’s account, you will select “No, I’m setting up a new agency account.” You’ll then be prompted to fill in all the relevant information about your agency, such as your IATA number.
And that's it!
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 and your tax details.
Add payout details
In order to get paid your commission, you’ll have to fill out your payment details. You can do so by navigating to the “Finance” section of your account (located towards the top left of the screen) and follow these steps.
Activate your account
After filling out all the necessary information in your account, don’t forge to activate your account!
