- Package 1 – access to a full-service travel agency
- Package 2 – adds Vortex plus to the travel agent opportunity
- Package 3 – is Vortex Platinum with additional benefits such as the opportunity to earn reward credits and exclusive wholesale travel pricing.
You will be building a team of SBAs to help you leverage the efforts of others while also helping them achieve financial freedom. You have access to sell the following products
- Travel agent – $99 license fee – $39.95 monthly fees – Commission $15
- Vortex plus – $199 license fee – $49.95 monthly fees – Commission $15

That article was a marathon for me to complete. The official Surge365 website does not include many details, apart from a few promotional videos.
I managed to find the compensation plan (3 different parts) on distributors web pages and Vortex on other travel agents.
The key thing is that Surge365 official website pushes the MLM opportunity. The compensation plan has many bonuses for top performers and if you are good at recruiting you will get exclusive rewards.
I can’t evaluate Vortex properly but before you join you should investigate further if Vortex is a better alternative than Expedia, TripAdvisor or other bookings/travel search engines out there. Which hotels/cruises/car rental companies are included in the list? What prices and discounts give Vortex?…the competition?…there are hundreds of questions to be answered.
The thing is you want to be sure that retail customers who want to travel will choose Vortex against the hard competition.
The training remains a mystery as there is no information unless you become a Surge365 member.
The membership of Surge365 is a little expensive with monthly fees that the majority of newcomers won’t be able to overpass.
Generally, the MLM opportunity is for experienced marketers and/or specialized travel agents with a huge following/email lists.
Yes, you can make money with this opportunity but if you are a newbie do not expect to achieve your goals easily. It needs hard work to get there. And it needs tons of recruiting as with MLM compensation plans.
