Top Product to Sell
Imagine spending your days selling the South Pacific, Africa, Asia, Latin America, the World's most Idyllic Islands or Adventure travel. At Goway, we do not sell the "usual" travel packages and destinations. We sell exciting and unique products to exotic destinations. We are constantly developing new packages to add to our portfolio which makes for an evolving and very rewarding career with us.
Opportunities to Specialize
With our extensive product and variety of destinations you can specialize in, you gain knowledge and expertise most travel agents only dream of! You can qualify to become a Wizard of Oz, an Africa Expert, an Idyllic Islands Expert, an Asia Expert or an Adventure Specialist. Our ongoing training sessions and weekly quizzes help you be the best you can be.

We provide continuous training in the destinations and product we specialize in, as well as training for other skills you will want to have to advance your career and earning ability. You will be trained to be an expert.
Opportunities for Advancement

Opportunities to Transfer and Travel
Within our total organization (over 200 employees), specialized departments, and multiple office locations (Toronto, Vancouver, Los Angeles, and Sydney), you will have the ability to transfer after you have proven yourself. You could even work for some of our overseas suppliers and connections. We also do not object to you taking an extended "leave of absence" to pursue your travel dreams. We value the experiences that fuel your passion for travel and so will your clients.
Unrivalled Back-Up Support
You are not alone. To help you maximize your selling objectives and professional development, we have an unrivalled support structure in accounting, administration, ticketing, IT, graphics, and human resources. We want to help you stay focused on achieving your sales goals.
We have always been recognized for having quality and advanced technology, which is a major requirement in the ever-changing travel industry. To make our operations even better, we have recently invested millions of dollars in an amazing "next generation" reservation system and an equally amazing "next generation" phone system. These user-friendly systems are helping our staff to be even more efficient, offer higher service levels & make more sales!
A Fun Place to Work
We are known as the most fun place to work, with our day-to-day atmosphere as well as our regular (and spontaneous) events throughout the year. This can range from the annual holiday party, an office cricket match, a social potluck lunch with your department or "Fun Fridays". Each person is truly part of the team and our supportive atmosphere fosters that philosophy. We believe in "work hard and play hard."
