    I was with Evolution Travel for a couple of years and i enjoyed the experience. Several months ago my account was closed for late payment. I’ve been trying for months to reach someone so that i can be reinstated. I’ve left several messages, and tried to contact through email to no response at all. I like the program but the live support is horrible, as far as i’m concerned, that is the only thing that needs fixing. There has to be an easier way. I will try again, but i already know what to expect. I’m sure that i’m not the only one with this issue.

    I entered this company (evolution Travel) in December 2016…soon after I had personally recruited 22 people with a downline of 30 people at its hay day. Made executive quickly…which my residual check was 52 which was held bc it wasn’t over the monthly fee. Quickly made it to bronze which I never received a residual check for nor did I make a silver residual check either which these checks are promised every month just like residual bills. Also, I am supposed to be receiving 10% commission of any travel that any of my sponsor had booked while I was still employed with them, never happened they created an ethics issue bc I signed an old agents husband (with her blessing) and they shut my website and gave all my sponsors to someone who was in the company for a year with no sponsors and my pay. An unethical company..who keeps agents pay.no excuse for such unprofessionalism.

      Unfortunately this agent was cancelled from the program for not following the rules. Also, this agent is located in New Zealand and still recruiting under a false name.

      The information listed is false and Archer Travel has never failed to pay commissions to any agent or employee in a timely manner.

    This is never what I experienced. My sales were huge bringing Luxury Travel clients from Amex Platinum
    and Centurion. There was no software for invoicing or a client database. Their was no support if you tried
    to take any time off. High profile clients went unserviced and left. Commissions never paid. Thousands of dollars
    taken of my earnings to pay back a client because they did not have the appropriate software to detect a final
    payment was due when I was hospitalized. The clients had cancelled. Email never read. Clients were promised their money back. Clients have never received. Bringing upscale luxury clients to this
    agency was not a fit and it killed half my Amex clientele. Plus being a single orphan with no benefits, who wound still from his employee that introduced him to luxury travel. This is the worst experience I’ve ever had in the travel
    industry. That sad part is no one that had the bad experience while I was on a brief vacation or in the hospital
    Is willing to trust my new agency which has the latest software, training, a support system, people who service
    your clients while you are away, an accurate accounting system and you get paid for everything that is invoiced
    In their system. It is so night and day. If I found my new company when I left Amex, I wouldn’t be put tens of thousands and would have been able to maintain all of my high profile clientele and their referrals.

      Dear Pamela,
      Unfortunately your frequent “hospitalizations” and “vacations” caused undo burden on the staff here as there were mistakes, errors, unresolved issues and other data missing from your bookings.

      You ended your affiliation with this agency over 5 years ago and you are now writing this review when we have refused to allow you to return since your current agency also cancelled your relationship.

      Currently we have over 3,000 independent agents that we provide service, training and support. I am truly sorry that you felt the need to strike out against our company at this time and wish you good health and well being.

      Ron Archer, President
