SmartFlyer Australia, part of the multi-award-winning Goldman Travel Group, has recorded 24% increase in year-on-year revenue for the 2017/18 financial year – a testament to its investment in a growing network of almost 40 independent travel advisers.
SmartFlyer Australia is a full-service network compromised of the ultimate travel collective. Its team of independent, remotely-based advisers are all specialists in premium and luxury travel experiences tailored to individual clients.
Over the past financial year, individual advisers recorded average earnings growth of 14%, while as a group SmartFlyer Australia boasts 18 preferred hotel programs and over 125 hotel high commission deals in their collective portfolio.
Anthony Goldman, Joint Managing Director of Goldman Group said: “There is a growing trend towards travel advisers wanting to work remotely and on their own terms.
“By offering flexible work options, SmartFlyer Australia means we can tap into the best travel talent regardless of location – all around Australia, whether that’s at home, on the beach, at a café, or while travelling around the world,”

SmartFlyer Australia advisers work independently but have the backing of the Goldman Group’s 35 years of industry expertise, connections and buying power, enabling them to service their clientele from any location. They also regularly meet with other advisers to share knowledge, processes and contacts.
“Our vast networks, industry relationships and extensive supply chain give our mobile team access to the very best premium travel products for their clients – enabling them to deliver completely bespoke holiday experiences each and every time,” said Goldman.
Having come together in Sydney earlier in 2018, SmartFlyer Australia advisors will have another opportunity to unite to share stories of their success, and to target future growth at the company’s C.O.R.E. event in October in Melbourne.
SmartFlyer’s New York-based Founder and CEO Michael Holtz, together with branding expert and leader of SmartFlyer’s successful Affiliate Program, Erina Pindar Chamberlain, will fly in to share their expertise with local advisers.
“This is a further example of the benefits of belonging to a network which enjoys significant support, both locally and internationally,” Goldman concluded.
