I love and appreciate everything Avoya stands for. They are upfront and honest. Easy to work with. Plenty of leads to work with and I am now at a point, 5+ years, where my repeat business is around 75% of my overall business. I love the buddy system and overall support.
I have been with Avoya a little over 8 years and have no intention on going anywhere else. The reason I give a 10 is because you have the total package, You have the Leads, The Booking Engine, the Marketing, the Support System, the ability to work as much or as little as you want and make as much or as little as you want. You also have the feeling of family. You can work from anywhere. There is a Buddy System. I could go on and on.
Update Oct. 5th, 2018:
There are alot of host agency out there but NON compare to Avoya Network!
The support and integrity of this company is by far the most professional in the industry!
Everyone is SO knowledgeable and helpful, from the training staff to the support staff… is’t an amazing company that truly wants you to succeed!
I really feel blessed to be apart of this organization!
I have been with Avoya Network for a few months and I am SUPER EXCITED to have found this company!

I truly feel blessed to have made this choice to be apart of such an amazing team!
I look forward to working with them for many years to come!
Every single Avoya member are always making sure to follow up with me, as their are all extremely friendly and professional
I am currently an independent agent in the Avoya Network. I am new to the travel industry and researched several host agencies before joining Avoya. I am extremely pleased with my decision for the following key reasons:
1. the Avoya technology platform is easy to learn and provides great support for my business
2. the team of Avoya employees backing up the independent agencies are professional, friendly and provide responsive and timely technical support when needed
3. Avoya's long-standing relationships with travel vendors provides a competitive advantage when closing sales
4. The Avoya live lead system provides a boost to your business aside from pounding the pavement to generate your own personal business.
My business continues to grow with Avoya, and I am proud to be part of the Avoya Network.
The main reason would be the leads.
I was only in the business for 2 years prior to joining Avoya, and those 2 years had me to the point of failure, due to no source of leads.
It's not easy, but you can grow and succeed in this group. I could not do it in Expedia Cruiseship Centers, my initial host.
Also, I like the group rates we sometimes have, especially with Celebrity and Royal Caribbean.
When you hit on a good group rate, you have a great advantage.
Thirdly, the AvEx's (Avoya Extras). When we have PPGs or good OBCs, it also puts us at advantage.
Most leads are shoppers, at least to some extent, and if we don't have something extra to offer, we have much less chance of winning the lead.
The support for conducting your own business on your terms is why Avoya hits a homerun all the time. It takes time and patience to develop a clientele but once you get going, everything comes into place.
Overall a wonderful group of people both other agents and staff...... with a terrific administrative team, the best support staff as well as all of the educational opportunities offered everyone each and every day. Live leads of course are the main draw to first working with Avoya as a host agency, but once you are learn the ropes, it almost becomes secondary to the opportunities offered. I feel as if I am part of a great family of friends and that holds great weight when you work most of your time compared to leisure time. Simply said, I love Avoya for many reasons.
Your score: 10
This is a very good host agency that really is moving along with technology and moving as fast as the world is moving . You can always call someone if you are in need of a answer of a question that you may not know. There is always someone in the forum that would help.
It has been an absolute pleasure being affiliated with Avoya Travel.
It's so evident that everyone wants to help the "newbies" succeed every step of the way.
When I first started the business, I was not too sure of myself, as far as being able "to do it"! I guess that's normal, as I had no previous experience in the industry.
From the call center agents who so nicely ask if I'll take a lead, to the tech support agents who ALWAYS help, and optional Mastermind leaders who really stand behind you, because they WANT you to succeed....I always know that someone has my back.I don't feel like I did at the beginning.. This is the start of something brand new to me...and look forward to every day as a new adventure.
I am very optimistic that I will do well selling cruises, and know that I will always have the support of Avoya Travel.
