As a new agent, I was drowning in a sea of Host Agency and Consortium options! It was overwhelming. Yet, with determination and patience (not so much), and a lot of help from Host Agency Reviews (thank you, Steph, Bridget, Mary, and anyone else), I eventually narrowed it down to Travel Quest and Travel Leaders. (You should see my Google spreadsheet! Every little detail about a slew of Host Agencies! Ugh! Many of which were great second options, but only one was the best.) The combined offerings of Travel Quest and Travel Leaders were everything I wanted and more, and with each passing week, I learn about more and more powerful tools at my disposal. They both just keep on impressing! I had none of that at my previous Host Agency. What a sea change! I could list their offerings (AgentMate, Engagement, Agent Profiler, CruisePRO, an overabundance of learning materials, tons of opportunities to get involved with your fellow agents, supplier partner familiarization (FAM) offerings, etc. - all of which I use and love!), but you can read about all of that on their website. What you really need to know is that I finally feel like I have the foundation necessary to build my travel business. Do American Express, Virtuoso, Ensemble, etc. offer you tools for success? Yes. Might other Host Agencies help build your foundation? Yes. Yet, when I was doing my research as a newbie, only Travel Quest and Travel Leaders gave me everything I was looking for. So, I would wholeheartedly endorse Travel Quest as your host agency and Travel Leaders as your consortium. (Feel free to contact me with questions. I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner.)
I just had to jump in here and say you are more than welcome, Scott! I know I speak for all of us here at HAR when I say we love being able to help you. :) Thanks for leaving such a helpful review of Travel Leaders Network and how you utilize their programs through your host!
I'm a new agent whose HA is a part of TLN. They have exceeded my expectations. They offer a large number of select cruises that allow me to offer extra perks to my clients at no cost to me or them. Their Agent Profiler--and system for maximizing your profile of web searches is great.
They have a free Member Engagement program that allows you to reach out to your clients at no cost to you.
I've been very happy with Travel Leaders. Both my previous and current host were members. The training, tools and resources provided along with a great selection of preferred suppliers cant be beat!
Travel Leaders are so helpful to keep all of us growing and learning. I love their AgentMate and engagement piece to keep organized with our clients and marketing to them. Their training courses are great to learn more and more on a daily basis.
I specifically chose to go with TLN because they have such a diverse portfolio across several metrics: Preferred Suppliers, training, agent tools (CRM, Hotel platforms, Cruise platforms, etc.) and marketing. I have been quite pleased that what I saw when researching turns out to be even more than I had anticipated and would choose TLN again.
I love all of the unique tools TL offers to agents as well as the support they give to their agents. They are always trying to help grow businesses on a personal level, which is great!
Travel Leaders Network is fantastic! I love the agent profile and the engagement pieces, both of which help obtain leads. The training courses are always current and helpful.
