About The Habitats by Kat: Who We Are

About Habitats By Kat

Habitats by Kat (HBK) is a travel entrepreneur community providing the necessary platforms for those interested to build their own travel business and brand. They are proud to be the first travel community, or better yet “HABITAT”, that focuses on real estate. HBK’s role is to remain behind the scenes while supporting consultants to become their own CEO. They believe each entrepreneur should be empowered to develop their own brand voice and they are the secret toolbox.

At Habitats by Kat (HBK), they approach the travel industry and being a “host agency” differently from the rest of the industry. Their goal is to attract the next generation of travel professionals who perceive being a “travel agent” as a dying breed. For this reason, they have created a platform that speaks to Millennials and Gen-Z with digital marketing, custom hotel technology and unique suppliers in mind with a strong sense of community. In today’s world, people can find travel tips and ideas on TikTok and Instagram; they are helping those on these platforms (aka travel enthusiasts, bloggers, influencers, etc.) monetize their social accounts and reach further.

They believe selling travel means many things, not just booking hotels, resorts, and cruises. They have community calls but also provide one-on-one coaching whenever you need support. Kat (founder) has 10 years of hotel experience and was in Marriott’s Global Sales Organization managing an account portfolio of 50 million. Sam (co-founder) was a VP at a PR healthcare agency based in NYC/LA. With their combined experiences, they have you covered with all aspects of your business.

They allow those with no travel experience to join their community. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, starting an online travel brand is 100% possible. They have consultants with experience in tech, real estate, content writing, healthcare, fashion, etc., who bring their best practices and skills to earn money through travel. They believe these experiences are valuable for everyone to learn from.
They have access to first-class hotel technology where they can build a custom hotel booking engine specific to a market you want to represent, and you can earn commissions from each reservation made:
