Welcome to my WorldVentures Review!
WorldVentures is a Multi-Level Marketing travel company with a mission to create more fun, freedom, and fulfillment in the lives of people through great life experiences and their financial opportunity.
In this WorldVentures Review, I will be examining this company, the travel products that they offer, as well as the MLM Business opportunity that they offer as a WorldVentures Representative. Does WorldVentures offer a legitimate and promising MLM Business opportunity, or is this a scam or pyramid scheme? This is my unbiased WorldVentures Review!
Company Details & History
Launched on December 10th, 2005 by founders Wayne Nugent and Mike Azcue, WorldVentures is advertised as a lifestyle company that is positioned to profit from the growing trend in online travel booking. All of which is powered by Rovia LLC, a 25 year old travel company.

MLM Business – How it all works…
The minimum cost to join WorldVentures as a Representative is the price of their Representative Business System (RBS) for $99.95, plus $10.99 per month.
Your RBS will provide you with three Personalized Marketing Websites, a Back Office System, along with an Online Training Program to familiarize yourself with their products, sales techniques, as well as marketing tools to assist you in getting started in your new venture.
Their focus on product sales
It is important to note that RBS purchases are non-commissionable, meaning that Representatives receive no compensation based upon recruiting and enrolling Representatives.
This in itself proves that WorldVentures is not a pyramid scheme, since they are strictly in the business of acquiring customers who purchase products and services, and compensate their Representatives only for the sales of their DreamTrips, DreamTrips Life, and Luxury DreamTrips Membership packages. Not for enrolling Representatives, which is where so many other MLM companies have got in trouble in the past.
Of course, many WorldVentures Representatives are also customers themselves, so to clarify, the initial setup fee and monthly costs of the above memberships are in addition to the initial purchase and monthly expense of their Representative Business System.
Although, with the exception of the requirement to purchase your RBS, Representatives are not required to purchase their travel memberships to earn compensation. It will just be recommended.
Representatives are required to maintain their Active status to accumulate sales credit, and qualify for many of the commissions and bonuses within the WorldVentures Compensation Plan.
To maintain your Active status, you must pay your monthly RBS fee of $10.99, and accomplish either one of the following:
- 1. Generate one personal sale of any of their above Membership travel products every month. This can be achieved either through a Retail Customer, or through a personally sponsored Representative. This must be accomplished by your monthly anniversary date of your enrollment.
- 2. Personally purchase one of their Membership travel products.
You must also remain current on your monthly billing.
Once you become and remain Active, you will be qualified for earnings as you accumulate sales.
If you become Inactive for more than 4 weeks, you will lose any sales volumes that you have generated.
Compensation – How their pay plan works
As an Active Representative, you will earn $20 each time that you sell a DreamTrips Membership or DreamTrips Life Membership, either to a Retail Customer or to a Representative in your downline.
You will earn $150 each time that you sell their Luxury DreamTrips Membership.
In addition to that, you will earn commissions and bonuses based upon not only your personal production, but the sales of Representatives in your organization as well.
I will limit the details regarding the WorldVentures pay plan to this, and at the bottom of this WorldVentures Review, you will find a link that will provide you with the exact details of how Representatives are rewarded within the WorldVentures Compensation Plan.
Representative Training & Support
WorldVentures is a MLM company, so the traditional Network Marketing and Word-of-Mouth concepts that are so popular in this MLM industry will apply in building your business.
You will contact those within your Warm Market of friends, family members, acquaintances, and associates to promote and sell their DreamTrips Memberships.
You will recruit those within your Warm Market who express an interest in the business opportunity as a Representative in your organization.
You will then train and mentor these individuals to duplicate your efforts, and begin building an organization of their own.
Additional Training Resources
WorldVentures does provide company-sponsored training events such as:
- WorldVentures Acceleration Workshop
- Millionaire Boot Camp
- Regional Training Events
It is important to note that these training events cost money to attend, but Representatives are given the opportunity to earn TrainingDollars, which can be redeemed toward the price of these events.
Again, you can learn more details regarding the qualifications to earn TrainingDollars in my review of the WorldVentures Compensation Plan at the end of this WorldVentures Review.
However, with all of the training that you will receive through your sponsor, and company-sponsored training events, these Warm Marketing methods will still be at the core of your new Representative Training.
WorldVentures Review Conclusion
In my opinion, WorldVentures is a legitimate MLM Business opportunity. Like I have mentioned, this is not a pyramid scheme, nor is it a scam!
In our modern day and age, online travel booking accounts for nearly 43% of all online spending. WorldVentures is positioned to profit from this growing trend, at the same time as add a special touch of human interaction.
Food for thought…
However, where I disagree with WorldVentures is in regards to their training methods, as I strongly feel that the Warm Marketing methods that WorldVentures trains and encourages is not an effective way to build a long-term and rewarding business in today’s world.
97% of those who participate in this MLM industry while using these old-fashioned tactics ultimately fail. This staggering statistic speaks for itself.
For those who possess a more modern and effective marketing strategy, I believe that WorldVentures offers a tremendous opportunity with great potential! We all travel, why not profit from it?
