OA has been my host agency since I started my business...just before the pandemic. They offer automated training as well as in person trainings in Jacksonville, FL. The support is great, but you are a true Independent Contractor. You decide how much or little you choose to take advantage of with their training and support. Although I would love to see updates with our CRM, it is still a very good tool. One of many that are included in the monthly fee.
OA is excellent in so many way-the staff is very well trained and very helpful, & personable too. The owners are always adding new training for us - complimentary online as well as in person at their office, and seminars at sea. Frequent emails are welcome to keep us in touch with what's new. I highly recommend them for all advisors - your business will grow quickly.
Joining Outside Agents has been such an incredible journey of growth for my travel business. Their extensive resources, training library (both live and in-person events) strong industry partnerships, and supportive community of other agents have propelled my success. This is truly a family atmosphere, where the owners and other agents are here to help each other grow! Outside Agents offers everything and more to ensure the success and growth of your business and I feel so lucky to be a part of this amazing team.
I love Outside Agents because I have complete control over my time, my niche, and my goals. I specialize in theme park travel, and I chose OA so I would have the freedom and support to expand if I wanted to. I love that OA has so many agents willing to help their colleagues. I have support from my fellow theme park specialists, great BDM relationships, and thousands of other agents who will assist if I get a request outside of my wheelhouse. I have never regretted switching to OA!
I am very new to the travel industry but had done a vast amount of research. I came across Outside Agents via a recommendation from a credible travel agency owner who highly recommended OA. So far, I love the community, the training, and the tremendous support. Super eager and happy to be partnered with them!
Outside Agents has been super supportive of my new start into the industry. I worked 30+ years in the corporate world and it's a blessing to know that I have such an organized and responsive support to my own business!! Training, escalated issues, accounting, CRM, sales tools and so much more. It's all there. I would give them 10 stars if I could.
I have never regretted switching from another Host Agency to Outside Agents in 2019. Their support "family" is outstanding. They are always looking for ways to keep us informed and trained with industry changes and technology. All while be aware of our budgets as TA's. I highly recommend Outside Agents.
I started my Travel Adviser career in Nov 2018. Originally I signed up with another Host Group. They told me they had training and mentoring. Sounded like a good deal. I wasted/lost 4 months with them. There was no training or mentoring and agent tools were outdated. I wasn't the only one that couldn't figure out how to start, I saw many FB posts from other newbies asking the same questions. After further research I decided to switch to Outside Agents. WOW, what a difference. I knew within the first 15 minutes that I had made the right decision to switch. It has now been about 4 months and I am still very happy. The training, communication and agent tools are great.
I was skeptical at first because Outside Agents is so much cheaper and offers higher commissions than other host agencies, but signing up turned out to be one of the best choices I have made since starting as a TA. Outside Agents offers so much training and support! It seems a bit overwhelming at first, but there is a huge network of fellow agents that are willing to answer questions, both on the OA site and their Facebook pages for Agents. I highly recommend giving it a try before paying hundreds to join one of the other host agencies!
I've been an affiliate of Outside Agents for over 2 years now, and I've been consistently impressed with the level of service they provide. The people I've dealt with have always been quick to respond to my questions, and they're always super friendly and helpful. Even the owners of the company are always accessible, and they're always willing to go the extra mile to help me succeed. Another thing I appreciate about Outside Agents is their commission structure. To my knowledge they offer some of the highest commissions splitting in the industry. They're a great company with a great team of people, and I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a host agency.
The owners and their staff are always available to help. That's hard to find these days! Plus, their commission share structure is absolutely fair and very favorable compared to other host agencies. I switched from being associated with a successful franchisee of a big franchisor so, believe me, I know what I'm talking about here. You can't go wrong with Outside Agents.
I am very new to this, and it is something I honesty have been wanting to do for my entire life, but somehow life got in the way and I wasn't able until now. I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out, because it all led me here. I am so happy with outside agents, there's so much I could say... They don't only give you all the necessary tools to get your business started, but they provide unparalleled support, there is an incredibly personal touch to every interaction and an incredible amount of resources provided to you, from having the ability to speak to the owners directly to amazing mentors, everyone I have had the pleasure of speaking to has been incredibly, kind, helpful, patient and knowledgeable, OA also encourages a sense of community that you cannot find many places nowadays, I could speak amazing things too about all the other agents with OA, OA has nurtured a community where everyone is helping each other, everyone is always happy to help and share their knowledge and resources, I can confidently say that this is one of the best decisions I have made in my life.
