Last year, when I decided to start my own agency, I talked to many host agencies. I followed the "how to find a host plan" from host agency reviews and it worked. I decided that I really wanted to find a host based in the Midwest so that I could have contact with local area BDMS who oversea the area where my agency is located. I have known many of them for several years. So many of the host agencies are based out of Florida and California. I also wanted a host that was easy to talk to and reach. When I talked with the TQ staff, I felt very welcome and I felt their interest in me. Every time I contact TQ support to get set up with a supplier or to ask a question, they get back to me in a timely manner. I also liked the fact that they were affiliated with Travel Leaders. I talked with Travel Leaders at a seminar, but I was not a big enough agency to work with them directly. Since I joined them over six months ago, I have been very pleased. All questions are answered promptly and you feel that they really want you to succeed with your business. I need to get my facebook account set up yet, but they have a very good forum on their agent site where questions can be asked of other agents. Every agent I have talked to online or at TQ's conference last fall have been very helpful and supportive about my business. I think I picked the perfect host agency for me.

They have good back office systems and continue to enhance and improve their set of services/systems every year. Operationally - would like more access to ClientBase services, which they limit currently. And would like to see more in the way of group management tools. Very helpful and dedicated staff. Their free annual national conference and on-going supplier seminars are top of the industry.

The support and training available through Virtuoso is (mostly) the highest quality I've seen. The only exception is a few recordings deep in the archives that weren't the best technically. Virtuoso staff responds lightning fast to any questions I can come up with - and they don't even sound like they're rolling their eyes on some of my elementary questions!

Hi, I’m Steph! I own the site. :)

I’m passionately curious, always up for something new! I love to travel, read/write, and meet new people. I have an 80-lb. Collie mix named Rigel that keeps me company!

I grew up in the travel industry (my parents had a travel agency) and built and worked at a host agency for years. Sometimes I get so excited about things, I think I leave a trail of rainbows in my footprints! :)
