    I’ve been with Romance Travel Group almost 2 years and my experience has been the best I’ve experienced with any Host Agency! It’s a small personalized boutique agency feel where you feel more like part of a team than a number at a large agency. The owners are always available for any questions and support! Which to me is huge!

    I’m on the branded side that offers many tools for my success where all I can focus on is the selling. The included VCRM is a wonderful tool to help with my client organization and back office.

    The owners are incredibly supportive and have many years of experience with excellent relationships with vendors/suppliers.

    They also offer many Fam opportunities throughout the year.

    I would not hesitate to recommend Romance Travel Group!

    Romance Travel Group is a great host agency. Shelli Nornes, owner, provides her agents with the tools and technology needed to make the sale. Romance Travel Group has the technology infrastructure in place to make our jobs easier and allows us more time to focus on selling travel. As a host she provides agents with free access to VCRM, secure online credit card payment processing and TSA forms.

    Shelli has many years of experience in the romance travel industry. She has developed long tenured relationships with key vendors and suppliers who provide the best prices, elevate our clients’experience, and earn high commission levels.

    With all of the above being major wins for this host the most valuable attribute for me is trust. I trust Romance Travel Group to have the vision of where the industry is going and to take care of me and my clients. Shelli has a good business acumen and willingly shares knowledge and expertise with the agents.

    I would highly recommend Romance Travel Group as a host agency!

    Shelli is amazing! I am so impressed with her, she is a very smart woman and has worked her way up in this industry to be a true leader. I feel very fortunate to be able to now host my agency with her. Not only does she offer the tools I need to do my job but is also a small business herself so she understands what I face and is always available to help. While a small host, you would never know that as we have everything afforded to us as if we were with a larger agency including top commissions as well as promotions. I am a very happy agent and look forward to growing with you. Thank you Shelli!

    The numerous supplier relationships and accolades that Shelli has, has played a key role in my growth as a home based travel agent. I love that Shelli’s Travel is a small business, so her focus is more personal and customized. She wants to help me succeed! With their great office support and endless tools, such as VCRM, I get to focus on what I need to do…which is sell travel!

    Shelli’s Travel is an amazing host agency to work with! Shelli has lots of experience in the travel industry and offers hands-on support and service. I have met with Shelli to do some one on one training and she is also always available by phone and/or email for help.

    Shelli’s Travel offers direct deposit with timely accounting and commission payouts. I love the free VCRM and online payment system for my clients to use. So handy!! Shelli’s Travel has innovative travel technologies and is always looking for new ways to help us work smarter, not harder.

    Shelli’s Travel is a great host agency to work with and offers free access to VCRM, secure online payment systems, high commission levels and has great relationships with key vendors and suppliers.

    Shelli’s Travel is continuously implementing new technologies to make our jobs easier. I am excited for the launch of a new “flight collector system” which will eliminate the need to manually chase down flight information from our guests and also soon to come is online group contracts with a deposit form!

    All this on top of offering years of industry experience, a great business mindset, hands on support and service and a commitment to overall success is why I think Shelli’s Travel makes a great host agency! I am grateful to be a part of her team!

    Thank you Shelli!
