I contemplated making this career move for several years, and did loads of research prior to choosing MEI-Travel. Reputation and commitment to excellence were high on my criteria list, and MEI has both. The training is comprehensive, giving agents an opportunity to learn about many different suppliers and vacation destinations.
The admin team is always supportive and accessible. Options for continuing education are also readily available.
An aspect I love about this company is the supportive nature of fellow agents-always encouraging and willing to collaborate. After being in the industry for several years, I would choose MEI-Travel to work with all over again.
I couldn't be happier with my choice of an agency to affiliate with and build my business! I have been fortunate to be affiliated with MEI and Mouse Fan Travel for 9 years. I consider it an honor and a privilege to be an affiliate with MEI. They offer all affiliates comprehensive and consistent training in all aspects of the travel industry. They also give opportunities to participate in FAMS that give hands on experience and training to increase your sales. Communication is always open, honest and consistent. I feel independent, yet highly supported at the same time in my business. Colleagues all support each other and are encouraged to share knowledge and learn from each other. I feel like at MEI, I am part of a successful team.
I am very happy to be affiliated with MEI-Travel and Mouse Fan Travel. I started their training program in January, 2013.
It was an intensive program that helped me become a successful travel planner. Beci Mahnken, the owner and CEO, is very responsive to any questions or needs of the agents affiliated with her company. The management and administrative staff are always available to offer the support or additional resources that we need to do our job. I feel that the commission percentage they offer is fair and our independent contractor fees are reasonable. They try to arrange meetings and FAM trips on a regular basis so that we can meet and network in person with others in the company. This is very important, especially for home-based agents. I have found that the other travel planners at MEI-Travel and Mouse Fan Travel are also more than willing to help other agents out by answering questions, providing support and friendship, covering for them while out of the office, and more. This is a great team, from administration to the agents, to have a successful travel planning affiliation and business!
As an Independent Consultant for MEI-Travel & Mouse Fan Travel, I have a supportive working relationship with Beci and team. I have enjoyed the flexibility & numerous opportunities given to me. Based on my workload, I can decide what training sessions I can or need to attend for either my personal growth, customer needs or my own continuing education. There are training sessions scheduled with various suppliers based on need or want that keep me updated on current trends and changes. I am given opportunities to attend several off site meetings, FAM trips and tours to keep me ahead of others. My clients have all walked away happy with the service I have provided based on the tools and resources I am given. I have learned so many things so far and look ahead to the future in growing my client base with the support of MEI-Travel & Mouse Fan Travel.
My close to ten years with MEI-Travel has been an amazing experience! The onboarding training was planned extremely well and continuous education and support has been stellar. The company has stayed true to its roots specializing in Disney vacation services while encouraging its agents to learn more about other global destinations and products allowing their agents to become well rounded vacation planners.
