Travel agencies could receive up to 45% of your 2019 revenue.
About the SAVE Act
On March 23, Reps. Mark Amodei (R-NV), Charlie Crist (D-FL), Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), and Dina Titus (D-NV) introduced the Securing Access for Venue Equity (SAVE) Act (H.R. 2120), which would make travel agencies and other hard-hit businesses eligible for the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant program. Under this program, applicants can qualify for grants equal to 45% of their 2019 gross revenue, up to $10 million.
What Does This Mean for Travel Advisors?
If you made $100,000 in commissions in 2019, then you could get a check from the government for $45,000!

THANK YOU FOR THIS LIFE LINE!!!
Thank you for reading!
Unfortunately, we started our business in January of 2020, right before COVID began here. We had several trips booked plus a group cruise. Then they were all canceled! So, we don’t qualify for this but have gone through the same issues, cancellations and lack of income as any other home based travel agency! We had a website for a year but just could not afford the many expenses involved with running a business, so we are running on bare bones. This grant would be so helpful to those travel agencies that started right before COVID, as well.
Hi Mary, thank you for sharing! It has been such a hard time, especially for new companies. We are rooting for you!
