When I decided that I wanted to become a travel agent 16 years ago, I did a search for Host Agencies and came across Cruise and Tours Unlimited, as it was called 'way back then. I spoke to Steve, Chad and Marty and decided from their sincerity about the family business, that this would be a good place for me to start my new career. I was not wrong. They were always available to help with whatever I needed, and I needed so much. The improvements they have made throughout the years in the training of their agents, is just amazing. Our BDMs are helpful also when their expertise is called upon. I am happy that I made the right decision immediately and have grown with their help. If you are looking to start your career, it would be wise to call on Outside Agents (as they are called now). You will not regret it!! Good luck.
Since joining Outside Agents, I have been pleasantly suprised with all the new technology they offer us. It is very easy to use the CRM and receive our commissions. Thank you OA for staying on top of the newest trends, offering seminars, webinars and other means for training. Contacting the office is seamless as well.
I've been with Outside Agents for two years; I started this journey as a hobby, I've made more money than I thought I would. Outside Agent's leadership, technology, learning tools, suppliers, BDM, and customer service team are the absolute best. The monthly fee is minimal; the benefits are astronomical. Outside Agents have given me the confidence to grow a hobby into a business and I'm so excited to have finally found my "Happy Place"!
Very supportive host agency. Quick response to queries. Provides significant training for new and existing agents. Provides array of tools through portal used in selling travel, managing clients, and managing travel at reasonable cost. Always willing to work with agents to help them accomplish their goals. Provides travel marketing sites for agents.
Probably one of the best agencies and in fact organizations i have ever worked for. The owners and administrative staff and supportive and are willing to work through most every situation. Their tools are effective and help you to be able to not only manage your clientele, but also interact with travel suppliers. In short, nothing but positive to say about CTU (Outside Agents).
I was with another host agencies up until 2016 when I switched to Outside Agents, and none of them compared to OA. Everyone at OA is always available are ready to help in every way possible. The training is outstanding. I cannot say enough about the staff as they go above and beyond the call of duty. I do not think you can find a better host agency.
OA has been great to work with! I really enjoy all of the training resources they have available to us. The staff is very helping when you need it and are always willing to go the extra mile to make sure any issues are resolved. I look forward to many more years with OA and all they have to provide!!
Outside Agents is a great host agency! I have nothing but positive things to say. Their training and support is superb. Their forums are great and fellow agents are willing to help us "newbies" with whatever questions we may have. I'm really glad I chose this host to jump start my travel business and I really do look forward to years of success with OA!
After working for a store-front agency for 15 years, I made the move to start my own business, at first with another host agency, but soon found that was not a good fit. I started with Outside Agents in 2021 and have been so impressed and completely happy with their professionalism, kindness and willingness to assist when needed. Great people and family to work with, I highly recommend Outside Agents - Cruises and Tours Unlimited if you are looking for a host agency for your business. Their commission share is outstanding!
Best Host Agency!
Commission is paid in a timely manner and is correct. They are always available to answer questions and provide assistance in a timely manner. I love the ability to attend FAM trips and trainings…. All are at an affordable cost. I have a website and they keep the content relevant and current.
From the time I joined Outside Agents, I have had more support than I ever needed. From top management down to the front desk clerk, everyone gives you their best. The are helpful, engaging, supportative, technology driven, education focused, and a FUN bunch of people to work with. They go out of their way to help you grow your business - from a beginner to the expert. There is no other like them - hands down!!
For multiple years, I've been affiliated with Outside Agents, and I must say that their cutting-edge technology, tools, and commission rates surpass those of other host agencies. One standout feature is their hands-free marketing, which has significantly boosted my client bookings. Their training resources are consistently accessible and straightforward to follow, empowering me to work independently, and their support is consistently reliable whenever assistance is required. What impresses me most is Outside Agents' commitment to upholding high ethical standards, which fills me with pride to be associated with them.
