I have been with KHM Travel Group for 6yrs. They have a wonderful training program for beginning travel advisors even through COVID they have adapted and provided training. During COVID, they have provided so much information from suppliers, destinations, and government information. They are more than a host but I feel I have met so many friends. They treat all of their agents as family. For as long I am a travel advisor I will be with KHM.
I recently joined KHM but am not new to the industry. I couldn't be happier with the decision I made to join this agency. The onboarding team made everything so easy and the transition couldn't have been smoother with logins and access to the CRM. You absolutely get more than what you pay for. The CRM with the marketing tools, finanical tracking, and goal setting is incredible, not to mention the additional education opportunities. Everyone at KHM cares about your success and is always looking for new ways to help you grow.
Since I have joined KMH Travel Agency. It has been wonderful. The support is above and beyond. Training is outstanding. When ever help is needed they are there. The staff is very friendly like family. I can't wait is see them in person. I'm work with my clients now so when travel resumes we will be ready to assist.
Thanks to all the staff at KMH .
I struck out on my own, and formed my home-based travel agency in January of 2020. Great timing, right? But I was already experienced enough to know basics, I thought, so I took the plunge. I have learned SO MUCH! The education, both in person and via the on-line videos, has been wonderful. They truly want each and every one of their agents to succeed, and offer the professional and emotional support needed to achieve your goals, whatever they might be. I highly recommend KHM Travel Group if you are considering building your own travel business!
I have been with KHM Travel Group for over a year now and I love the support, training, and opportunities that this Host Agency gives their agents. I love the new ideas they come up with to help their agents grow, and the news of the industry that they pass out. I love having them as my host.
For context- I work as a full-time science teacher and as a part-time travel agent with KHM Travel Group. Since day one with this Host Agency, I have had amazing support from all staff members in this organization. They truly take the time to answer questions, provide multiple platforms to ask for help, their website abounds with TA training online and when one needs more, they provide virtual training and in person training (in non-covid conditions).
In addition to providing excellent support all around, this company also advocates to suppliers when some of their practices go south. During this pandemic, Bill Coyle and Marie Smith frequently hosted live FB meetings and posted informative tips on how to manage cancellations, how to rebook and other helpful marketing tips.
All in all, they are a consummate Host Travel Agency who honestly cares about the continued success of their home-based agents. Thank you KHM for all that you do for us!
I want to start off by saying "Thank you" KHM. As a newbie to the travel industry, the training materials were resourceful and easy to comprehend. The notes and outlines for each course were arranged precisely to agree with the topic. Each tutorial, glossary, forms, and website links were saved for future reference. Your ideas and topic early into the courses were noted and detailed to help assist with taking notes.
I look forward to learning more from KHM and strengthening my knowledge throughout the world of travel.
I am not new to the travel business but I am pretty new to KHM. My team and I joined in January when we could never have known how badly we would need so much support because of the COVID crisis. I have had two hosts prior ---one early on which I hated (60/40 split) and another the past few years which I jsut tolerated ;) My former host regularly dropped passing on emails to me. They were hard to reach and not helpful or kind on the rare occasion I needed help.
KHM is the opposite of all of this. Having been around the block a time or two I cannot over-emphasize what a breath of fresh air partnering with KHM has been. They are responsive. They are kind. They have shown integrity every step of the way. They have never missed a beat in supporting agents even as their staff has had to reduce their hours during the pandemic. They are providing us a continual life-line of Live chats, webinars, zooms, etc. Their training is good and even an old dog like me always has something to learn. (I hear their in-person Boot Camp is awesome but I have only been able to do the virtual EDU.) I cannot say enough to encourage a new agent to consider partnership with KHM. None of my prior hosts showed this level of concern or support. I am grateful every day.
My son Victor & I started in this business just over 10 years ago with KHM as our host. We actually stumbled upon them by chance while Victor was applying for a job in web design. When he was too new to that he was invited to a small meet & greet informational seminar about becoming a travel agent. Knowing only about being a travel agent from using one ourselves I went along with him to check out what they were talking about in support of my son who was right out of college. We were greeted with friendly smiles and made to feel like family from the beginning. We listened to their talk and found ourselves very interested in finding out more about running our own agency. We did some research and liked what we saw. We signed up and have been with KHM ever since. With their wide variety of training platforms, their agent support system, their ability to negotiate larger than average commission levels for us, and their ability to bring together suppliers from every aspect of travel to also provide training and certifications I have watched our business grow from having a small income with just a few bookings to one that provides a nice income for both my son I. Top that off with the ability to network with suppliers face to face at many events, KHM dedicated FAMS, even Supplier sponsored Facebook Pages dedicated to work directly with KHM Travel Agents Exclusively. Facebook pages that our monitored by our supplier BDM,s (Business Development Managers) with the leading Cruise and Resort suppliers who are there to provide us with up to the minute news release, promotions, and sales tools to help us support them and help us grow our business.
I mentioned earlier on that the staff at KHM made us feel like Family from the start. Well that relationship is even stronger felt today with Regional support by local Support Staff assigned to help us in our different regions of the US, The bonds created by the networking that take place with not only other Local KHM Agents with local Meet-ups to share ideas but with Agents across the country on Our dedicated Regional and Cross Country KHM Facebook Pages.
The support from the office staff to the regional coordinators, to agents that are running their own agencies is always there for you. If you join KHM Travel you will never feel alone and will always find support and encouragement.
Before I became a travel agent I did a lot of research - I read so many reviews and kept coming back to KHM. I have been with them for almost 3 years now. Honestly, KHM has a lot to offer as I am sure many of the other agencies do as well. Here are a few of the most important I have found beneficial for me.
Support - you receive support from the staff. They are pretty responsive when you have a question or concern. The training is good, I think it was harder when I started than it appears to be now. (I can say that because my husband has joined and his was a lot easier than everything I had to do when I joined lol) Not only do we have the support of the staff - we have some great support from other agents. We all tend to help each other out with questions, reviews on properties, the ins and outs, business questions etc. The group facebook page I find extremely helpful.
Rick Zimmerman - he is our president with KHM. You could not ask for a more Godly man. He prays for each and everyone us daily which says a lot to me. Mr. Rick is very approachable and loves to sit down and talk to the agents, get to know us and always wants to know what he can do to help us grow. I had the pleasure of sitting with him at a training in Vegas with some other agents. We sat there for several hours just talking, learning about his experiences, more about the company, the things he wants for the company and agents in the future, and then he wanted to know about us. He asked each of us to share our passion, our heart, and our concerns. I found a whole new respect for him that day.
Finally, I would say KHM has help me grow as an agent and as a company. They provide many opportunities to attend training events, FAMS, webinars, etc. Their goal is to help me be the best I can. As I grow they grow and that is always a win win situation for everyone.
I can not say anything bad about KHM. I have been very happy, I have made some of the best TA buddies a girl could ask for and in my opinion KHM is a great option you should consider. As stated earlier I have not been with any other host and yes, you should do your research and find the company that offers what you are looking for. I did and KHM is were I landed. Good luck and I hope you rock the world of travel! It's not about competition, it's about growing awareness of being a great TA. There are so many people out there, we do not have to compete against each other, but we do as a whole need to bring the industry up to higher standards.
