Program Information and Media

Information About Company / Programs and Structure for Independent Agents

Our History Established as a small storefront travel agency in 1956, Leora and Joe McClure, Sr. bought Montrose Travel in 1972 as their retirement career. In 1990, the McClure's children, Andi, Joe and Joe’s wife Julie purchased Montrose Travel from their parents. Together the trio grew Montrose Travel even throughout multiple recessions, turning their parents’ small-town agency to a $300 million company by 2015. In 2016, we became part of the Corporate Travel Management (CTM) family, significantly increasing our buying power and clout in the travel industry. Today, we remain 100% debt-free and proudly family-operated. Our Programs  MTravel is the host agency division of CTM. We offer four program levels depending on a person’s experience, including:
  • Core business development/sales support team to provide personalized mentoring and support
  • Up to 90% commission
  • Award-winning live professional development program
  • Our industry leading Private Labeled Consumer Website with online booking and customizable features
  • Agent Connex back-office portal
  • Errors & Omissions insurance
  • Client Connex powered by ClientBase marketing tool
  • Direct deposit
  • Access to leisure, corporate and group products/programs as well as significant airline contracts
  • One low annual fee with no required monthly fees – no nickel-and-diming
Our Difference Our company culture is devoted to a deeply supportive, family-focused environment. As both a host and retail travel agency, we have several in-house divisions to provide expert support and cutting edge technology tools. Each program and service we create is designed chiefly on the feedback we receive from our agents. This allows us to provide a truly unique, progressive hosting program for agents of all experience levels. We are wholly committed to developing personal relationships with our agents, and many have been with us for over 25 years. Join the MTravel Family With the backing of CTM's over $5 billion net worth, MTravel remains one of the healthiest and most respected travel companies in the country today. We are reputable, financially stable and in it for the long haul. Whether you’re brand new or an experienced agent, we welcome any success-oriented independent travel consultant with a strong entrepreneurial spirit to join our family and achieve success beyond their individual scope.
