Do you need a license to sell travel to and in Florida?
The question above is best answered by the State of Florida and, in most cases, their answer will be yes. Florida has one of the broadest Seller of Travel registration requirements in the country. Simply put, you’ll most likely need to register with the state if you’re selling travel related services in Florida regardless of your business location. This is true with out-of-state travel agencies offering travel to Florida residents as well.
How much does it cost to register as a FL Seller of Travel?
The state application fee is $300. It increases to $400 if you or your company sells vacation certificates. Vacation certificates are basically prepaid travel vouchers which can be redeemed at a later date.
Other expenses include the cost of your Florida Seller of Travel Surety Bond, registered agent (if needed), and other items. These other items can include corporate registration, dba/fictitious name registration, and other administrative items required by the state.
