Travel Ventures International TVI Review

The Travel Ventures International or TVI domain was registered in April of 2008. My first glance impression is that this company does have a very pretty website. This company operates out of London, England within the United Kingdom. The goal of this company is to deliver the Travel & Hospitality products and services as well as giving MLM Distributors a chance to earn extra income with their built-in Compensation Structure.


Travel Ventures International or TVI claims to take pride in its ability to offer the latest in Internet Based Training Systems and say that they have a bullet proof plan for wealth creation. This company does admit that to build their business will take a lot of hard work on your part, but that they are there to help you during every step of the process. They will give you your own Website, Personal Back Office Management System, Downline Progress Reports, Internet Marketing Tools in addition to Offline Promotional Tools.


I read on their website that Travel Ventures International or TVI is striving to reach new heights of excellence and they plan on doing this by using a force which they claim is more powerful than Network Marketing, by forming geniune lasting relationships that will establish long-term financial rewards and personal self-actualization. They say that what they are doing has not been done in Network Marketing before.


Travel Ventures International or TVI has aligned itself with some of the top names in the Travel Industry like Sheraton, Avis, Crystal Cruises, British Airways, Royal Caribbean and about one dozen others. I think it's a good company if you are in England since they have some very strict Network Marketing Laws. If you are from the U.S. and needed to sue them you would have trouble collecting on a judgment.


It costs $ 250.00 or so to join Travel Ventures International or TVI. They are using what is called a "Revolving Matrix" which is split up in 3 related matrix plans. The first Matrix Plan is called the Travelers Board. It's a 2x4 Matrix. Then you get pushed up into the Express Board which is another 2 x 4 matrix board. Then you'll make about $ 15,000 per month. Then you get put into the real matrix which is a 5 x 10 matrix where the big money is the program is made. These matrices do have spillover.


They also have incentives where you can earn Laptops and Cars. The FTC in the USA does frown a lot on these types of MLM Compensation Plans. There is also a lot of room for breakage in this Compensation Plan. And these days the FTC are really after Travel Companies so if you are a big rep in the US and brings a large following into this company, you might have some backlash to worry about down the road.


Also Travel Ventures International or TVI said the payout is 72%. The MLM Industry average is 40-50%. If a company pays out more than 50%, it will be hard for the company to keep its sustainability for more than a few years. I think the company has good intentions and is legit as far as it's strategic alliance partners go. I also think there is short term money to be made in the program but I also think it has its drawbacks.


Finally I'd say I do endorse the product, but only if you are about to retire and want to purchase the product just for the product benefits. If you plan on traveling a lot, you can get your monies worth just using these products since they are solid.

Market Definition

The advertising industry consists of agencies providing advertising services, including display advertising services. The market value reflects net fee and commission revenue of the agencies for provision of such services to their clients, and does not equate to the total advertising expenditure within the country or region.

Similarly, revenue data provided in the Leading Companies chapter refers the total revenues retained by each company, after subtraction of any payments they may make on behalf of their clients to media channel suppliers, such as television broadcasters, newspaper and magazine publishers, etc. It also includes any revenue obtained from any non-advertising operations. Revenues therefore do not equate to the gross billings made by advertising agencies to their clients.

Any currency conversions used in the creation of this report have been calculated using constant 2009 annual average exchange rates.

For the purposes of this report, Europe consists of Western Europe and Eastern Europe.

Western Europe comprises Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

Eastern Europe comprises the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, and Ukraine.

Flickr challenge: ‘Contemplation’ theme results

Our weekly Flickr competitions are an opportunity for talented travel photographers to enter their most fitting image for a specified theme. After a week for submissions, participants are given a further week to cast votes on their favourite photos before voting closes and the results are announced.

The latest challenge was ‘Contemplation’. Let’s take a look at the best shots.

This week’s winner

man in misty train - Bartek Baracz

A passenger lost in thought on a Polish train © Bartek Baracz

This atmospheric photo from Bartek Baracz was captured on a train travelling across Poland. We love the quality of the sunlight as it seeps through the carriage windows, creating patterns and reflections across the shiny interior surfaces. The image composition gives us a wonderful sense of perspective, yet constantly draws focus back to our mysterious train companion.

This week’s runners-up

No title - oarranzli

Contemplating life in the Medina, Morocco © oarranzli

The Medina of Fez makes a great backdrop for this candid shot of everyday life, taken by oarranzli. We like examining the small details in the photo, like the makeshift chair used by our friend with the mule, and trying to work out whether the two subjects have been recently engaged in conversation with each other.

Deep thoughts - ashokum2

Deep thoughts on the face of a fellow traveller © ashokum2

What a striking portrait from ashokum2! The use of close-up really emphasises the subject’s facial expression and the incredible texture of her skin as it catches the light. We’re quite intrigued by the sort of thoughts which might produce such a look of concentration, and we hope ashokum2 had the opportunity to sit awhile and find out.

Contemplation - rovinglight

Contemplation from a window ledge in Nepal © rovinglight

Another arresting portrait, this time from rovinglight. The tight angle doesn’t give away much about the surrounding streets of Kathmandu where the shot was taken, but it certainly centres our interest on the subject. The composition of this photo is also particularly clever, as the window’s edge provides a perfect frame for our thinker.

Solitude - Square Lamb

A pensive pooch watches the spray in Spain © Square Lamb

Square Lamb features in the top images again with this shot from Seville in the springtime. We like the contrast between the shaded foreground area and the bright sunlight, caught in mid-air by the fine spray of water. We wonder what the canine observer is thinking about, and whether a trip through the mist is on the cards!

Contemplation - alfieianni

A lone monk in thought by the water, Cambodia © alfieianni.com

We appreciate the simple composition in this shot from alfieianni.com, taken in Phnom Penh. The splashes of colour from the monk’s bright robe and the golden flagpole base immediately catch the attention. Afterwards, our focus is free to wander into the blurred distance, mirroring the gaze of our thoughtful subject.

Jahangir Mahal. Orchha, India - jafsegal

Thought-provoking views in Orchha, India © jafsegal

This image of the Jehangir Mahal was taken by jafsegal, and we can’t imagine a more evocative capture of this incredible citadel. The warm orange tones of the shot are beautifully complemented by the rich fuchsia of the observer’s dress. With an amazing view like that, we’re not surprised she seems to have a faint smile on her face.

This week’s staff pick

peace of mind - Tbhadra

Serenity extending to the horizon across the Bay of Bengal © T.bhadra

Our staff pick is this otherworldly image from T.bhadra, taken on Sagar Island in West Bengal. The pastel colour palette blurs the lines between shore, sea and sky, blending them all into a single impression of tranquillity and contemplation. We’re impressed by how well this shot captures the sense of space and calm one invariably feels at the seashore, and we almost envy the sadhu his spot on the sand.

You can check out all the entries on our leaderboard. Next week’s theme is ‘Coffee’. Interested in taking part? Visit our Flickr challenge page to find out more!
