Hi I’m Meredith Hill, founder and CEO of Gifted Travel Network, GTN, and the Global Institute For Travel Entrepreneurs, GIFTE. Many years ago I was in a passionless but successful career, spending my time daydreaming about working for myself in a business built around my greatest passion – travel. I eventually got the courage to leave my Wall Street career and pursue this passion of travel. But my happy ending took a long time to come my way. I never quite found a program that taught me how to be successful as an entrepreneur selling travel. All the programs taught me an old out-dated path to becoming a travel agent. I was determined and I eventually figured it out – I paved my own path and built a thriving successful business selling travel to million and billionaires wanting to go to Africa. It’s my burning desire to share this path because I know I‘m not the only one who wants to build a successful entrepreneurial venture selling travel.

Why the Travel Marketing and Business Academy?

What makes our program different?

We have developed a very clear sequence to building your business and have found that when people don’t follow this sequence they get very confused, have no clear goals, and end up owning an expensive hobby instead of a successful business.

Let us guide you on this path to success in travel.
  • "Being part of GTN is the best of all worlds. At GTN I really feel supported, not only in product knowledge, but more importantly in best business practices. As a solo entrepreneur, I have a “home office”who truly cares about my success on all level; financial, professional and personal growth. It’s truly a win/win for all."

  • "GTN has been super helpful getting my agency up and running. I am new to the travel industry and everyone has been very helpful. They have mentors, a great selection of hotels through their consortia and lots of motivating seminars and webinars."

  • "GTN is an amazing host agency and incredibly supportive to their agents. I highly recommend GTN for new agents looking to start off on the right foot as GTN’s MBA program teaches the nuances of the travel industry I wish I learned when I started, rather than figuring it out the hard way, on my own. I also recommend GTN for experienced agents who are ready to work with a host agency that supports you as you market yourself as the travel professional that you are."

  • "I am a new agent in GTN’s Travel MBA program. My Aha moment came on a Travel MBA call. With the help of GTN mentor Lisa Fletcher and Meredith Hill, discovering what my niche should be has become one of the best things I have received from GTN."
