Im an independent travel agent through Nexion Travel Group Canada. I am very happy with the service, price, and support with Nexion. They were a perfect fit for me. Mike is a force in the industry, and a great resource for agents. I highly recommend Nexion Travel Group Canada to any agents looking for a host agency.
I always wanted to work in travel and took the leap to get myself educated in 2020. I knew that I wanted to be with a Host Agency and I researched many and made a list of what each had to offer.
Once I had it narrowed it down, I set a time to chat with each of them. Low and behold when I spoke with Mike, President of Nexion Canada, he answered each and every question I had. Mike made himself available as I worked through the process and had further questions and answered each of them clearly and honestly.
I joined Nexion in February 2021 and haven't looked back. Training is available and the weekly live webinars Mike does with the agents has kept us engaged, informed and allows a forum for idea sharing.
There is a true sense of helping each other and working together, sharing information and ideas. I have nothing but great things to say about Nexion as this is now my travel family and feel that I am part of a great group that all want to work together to help each other grow each of our businesses.
Don't hesitate to join Nexion, you won't be disappointed!
I moved to Nexion Canada in 2019, after expressing difficulties to an industry colleague, with my previous Host Agency. Am I ever glad I did. I met with Mike and he gave me comfort that this was the right agency for me, right from the beginning. Since then he has always been accessible, and supportive through the bumps and growth spurts my agency has had over the years. His team is just as helpful.
I have been in the travel industry for ten years and joined Nexion Travel Group - Canada as an IC six years ago.
- supportive network of fellow agents
- excellent training modules
- maximum level of flexibility how you operate your business (part-time / full-time, home-based, focusing on a certain niche etc.)
- various resources and preferred partner programs (e.g. with hotels and cruise lines) availabile via the Internova / Travel Leaders Group network
What sets Nexion Travel Group - Canada apart in my opinion is its excellent and dedicated leadership and member services team. Whether its an accounting issue or a supplier-related matter, one can be sure to receive the support and advice needed.
I can highly recommend Nexion Canada to both new agents embarking on a new career as well as experienced agents confident in running their own business.
When I first decided to get into the travel industry, I knew I wanted to be an independent agent through a Host agency. I began my research to find a Host. After extensive research narrowed it down to three potential host agencies. I asked comparable questions of each host.
The one that thoroughly impressed me was Nexion Canada. It was a big step for me to choose the Host. Mike Foster, the president of Nexion Canada was my first contact I was surprised that the president called me as with the other agencies that was not the case. Mike made me feel special. He listened and answered all my questions. I really felt that that this Host was the right fit.
That was four years ago. Other Hosts have approached me, but I feel they do not offer what Nexion Canada does. Nexion Canada is a great Host, and I am happy with them. The education, suppliers and support are topnotch. My first year I attended the yearly conference with our US counterparts. It was the best decision I made. I met many Canadian agents, and we stay connected through various social media, Nexion town and other means of communication. Whenever you need assistance, you can reach out to membership support team or other agents. I truly feel part of a family.
I highly recommend the Nexion Canada team …. join and you will not be disappointed.
I joined Nexion Canada back in May of 2018 and could not be happier. From my first conversation with Mike, the President, to meeting local agents, to help from member services, and meeting our USA "family" at our annual conference, everyone has been incredibly helpful and supportive. Being new to the industry, I chose to take the Independent Learner's route, and it was the perfect choice for me due to the flexibility. I have also attended several of Nexion's live training programs and conferences, and have learned so much, both from the programs themselves and from the networking with other agents. We also benefit from being a part of Travel Leader's Network, and have access to more fantastic programs through them.
After 15 years in the financial industry, I got the idea that I should be a travel agent. In all honesty, it started as a silly idea. I didn't know anything or a single person in the travel industry who could offer me any insight. I thought the only option was to go apply at a brick and mortar and I certainly didn't want to do that. When I learned about being home based, I was sold.
Research began for me on the internet of course. Websites such as this one and others started giving me ideas of how to open your own travel agency. I read the pros and cons of using a host or going completely independent.
I attended Cruise3Sixty in April and decided to join Nexion Canada in May. I thought their sign-up fee and monthly fees were very reasonable unlike other hosts that require a huge start-up. I didn't have thousands of dollars to start this new business and I certainly didn't want to take that much risk in case I failed. Nexion also offers a Power Up training program, perfect for such a newbie like myself.
Nexion's Power Up program is phenomenal. They have pre-recorded sessions you can listen to at your own pace AND refer back to when you need to do something live for the first time. In addition, I really appreciated the one-on-one weekly sessions with the trainer. What was important to me and still is, is being able to reach out to Nexion when I have a question and to get a timely response.
I chose the option to brand myself and I really like feeling like I'm the owner of my own travel agency. Nexion provides the back office support I need. I truly feel that they support me and my business and sincerely want me to succeed. It's only been a short few months and I would never have imagined that I would be where I am today if it weren't for them.
I am looking forward to my future as a home based travel agent with Nexion.
As a newbie in the travel industry, I feel I have reached a milestone in my business. With openness and honesty I was able to address my concerns and expectations with Mike (the President of Nexion Canada). As an Independent Travel Agent, its very important to feel someone has your back. Working with a host agency is a new realm for me. Words put into action = commitment. Nexion is committed to helping me succeed. They listened and acted on my concerns and needs. I look forward to learning, growing and exploring the possibilities with Nexion Canada. It was a good choice and a healthy partnership.
Being employed at a Brick and Mortar agency offered me an amazing opportunity to be introduced into the world of travel consulting. When my boss retired December 2013, I did much research to find the perfect host company that would suit me and the vision I had as I moved forward in opening my own home-based agency. I certainly have found that in Nexion Canada.
All of the support members in London, Ontario are friendly, professional, supportive, accessible and learned. On more than one occasion, Nexion Canada has gone out of the way to offer me the opportunities, tools and accessibility I needed, especially being located in British Columbia.
The training opportunities offered by Nexion are endless and easily accessible. Even if an "out of the blue" question arises, they are there to help.
I love working in ClientBase which offers a great opportunity for me to track my clients. The access to the varied tour operators is excellent - I must add that I have better access now then I did at the Brick and Mortar agency I previously employed with.
Certainly the commission structure is excellent and I'm very happy to say that my business is booming!
Joining Nexion Canada in January 2014 after 6.5 years at a brick and mortar was absolutely the right choice for me. I am happy to call myself a member of Nexion Canada and proud to be a part of this family of travel consultants.
I have recently joined Nexion's brand new venture into Canada - Nexion Canada.
I have nearly 8 years experience in the travel industry and felt little growth with my previous employment and so began the change of my life.
With a relatively new family I wasn't spending the quality time that they deserved.
It was at this time I became aware of Nexion Canada in a travel magazine article and coincidentally was introduced to them via a mutual acquaintance.
Change can be challenging and frightening however I felt extremely comfortable from day one when meeting with the Nexion Management team.
Professionalism, courtesy and quality are traits easily associated with Nexion Canada and having worked previously in quality Five Star Hotels as a Concierge I know what excellence in service entails.
Nexion Canada made my transition hassle free with a commitment and endeavour to make sure nothing was left to chance.
My flexible hours working as an independent contractor for Nexion saved my Marriage.
This would have been ample reward for the move however there was an additional incentive. The revenue generated with the Nexion programs allows me the potential to make the income I choose. The rewards are incredible for the work you put in. No longer do I work overtime for no pay. I work overtime to increase sales which comes back to me directly as revenue not as income to meet set targets.
The marketing and training components with Nexion Canada is invaluable as an independent contractor to build and grow my business. They cater to your needs and allow you the freedom to develop the direction you want your business to grow in.
Patience in our Industry is one of the key factors to success and Nexion Canada has impressed me from day one with their seemingly abundance of patience and assistance.
I would highly recommend Nexion Canada to all those quality agents looking to move from the mundane to start an adventure that you write, direct and star in and ultimately decide how it develops with Nexion Canada's continued assistance and guidance along the way.
