No matter who wins the hotly contested race to be the next President of the United States, one travel agent is going to pocket a $50,000 commission check if he or she sells a special $500,000 inauguration package at the new Trump Washington D.C. 

Accommodations will be the 6,300-square-foot Trump Townhouse, a duplex suite in the soon-to-open Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Your client who books the package gets a plethora of extras, including a dinner in the two-bedroom suite's oversized dining room, selecting from your choice of favorite POTUS menus from past galas.

It also includes 24/7 car service and two roundtrip first-class tickets from anywhere in the United States, and the hotel will allow name changes to the reservation.

While special event packages are not always commissionable, executives of the hotel tell Travel Market Report that all of the packages it offers around the inaugural will pay 10% commission to travel agents. The property, set in the former headquarters of the U.S. Post Office, is set to open Sept. 12.
