Flight Centre Unbranded is a pure consolidator model within the Flight Centre Travel Group that enables existing travel companies to buy our negotiated land and air deals. The opportunity is that you own and manage your own customer base, operating systems and banking. There is no split in commission but rather a monthly fee. Flight Centre’s benefit from this model is the joint created volume required to reach override agreements. FCTG is also open to acquisitions within this model.
