It has been a year since I signed up with OA. Now is a great time to share my experience with you if you looking for a new host ( like I was) or are a new agent looking to join the tourism trade. OA is a GREAT host. No doubt. Before joining them, I simply picked up the phone and called them to speak with the owner. I had zero expectation of this actually happening but was pleasantly surprised when Chad Burt came on the line and spent a good half an hour speaking with me and answering all my questions. I signed up the same day. It didn't take me much time to understand their systems and if I had a question, the OA staff was very quick with their email replies. Best way to communicate with them. They have brilliant internal systems set up for just this purpose. Agency staff and higher-ups are almost always available for insight and help as and when needed. They are highly professional ( yet super funny on socials). I had a chance to meet most of the staff at one of their TA conferences and the vibe is that of one big family. For new agents, they have mentors for initial support. Though I have industry experience, I still set up a call with a mentor just to test the new waters. It was a lovely call. They have great contracts with vendors, resorts, and consolidators across the world. Their payment system is top-notch with very little room for confusion. Payments have been on time on expected dates. The split is also one of the best ( that I know of) ( Ex host had a terrible split and I wish I had known of OA before). All in all, I highly recommend Outside Agents. It has been a great year with them. Happy Travel!

I’m so happy I signed up with Outside Agents! I’ve learned so much since I signed up with and feel confident I will always have people to turn to if I need assistance. I never dreamed I could be where I am today in such a short time. Their personal facebook group has been so helpful and there is a great sense of community there. I highly recommend them

I just started with Outside Agents six weeks ago and it has been such a great decision for me. The training and support they offer is outstanding. There is so much available for you right at your fingertips. Between their training videos, the vendors’ trainings that they easily connect you with, the discussion boards that easily allow you to connect with other agents, the mentors that are available by phone, the Facebook group that gives you instant access to other agents, and the tools that allow you to create all of the documents you need, Outside Agents really does give you a great opportunity to jump right in as an “experienced” travel advisor, even when you are brand new to the profession.

I was an avid traveler when I joined with no travel agent specific experience and I feel like they provide all the tools and resources to be successful. I’ve found growth year over year since joining in 2021 gaining confidence and knowledge along the way. I’m in Arizona not close to their corporate office but find there are still a lot of training opportunities to take advantage of virtually even if not there in Jacksonville. Would recommend a thousand percent.

OA is a family owned business that works hard to serve at home agents at a very reasonable cost. There are in person trainings that are helpful as well. I just started my business and when looking I wanted a reputable company with flexibility - so that if I didn't like it I didn't have to stick with it. So, they offer monthly memberships. And they are very responsive.

I chose Outside Agents as my host agency back in 2022 after doing some research and I have never regretted that decision. The amount of training, support, and marketing tools they give me is incredible. There are thousands of agents under them, but it still feels like a tight-knit family. 10/10!!!!!

After 12 years as an employee, I decided to make the move to become an independent agent and found the options overwhelming. I spoke to a LOT of different host agencies and then someone mentioned Outside Agents. I've only been here a year now but have never been happier!! Everyone I have encountered has gone above and beyond in making me feel at home. The support I have is incredible. No question is deemed silly or irrelevant. After 15 years in the industry, I had my best year ever and I honestly owe that to OA for making me feel like part of an amazing family. Keep up the outstanding work all and thank you!

I have been with OA since the start and am so thankful for all they offer. The training, the software and the support has been amazing. I recently signed on my first sub-agent and, as always, they made the process smooth and were very helpfu. Although I'm the only agent in my office, OA makes it so I always have collegues to reach out to. I look forward to many years to come.

Outside agents is amazing. Their training is extensive and top of the line. I had previously been with another agency who left the training up to other agents. OA trains their own agents. The owners of the company are out there training everyday. Their pricing plan is very reasonable and comes with several perks.

I just switched to OA a month ago, but I love it! I love that I can customize my website. The site is easy to navigate and everything is laid out for me. No clicking 100 tabs trying to find what I'm looking for. I've told my family so many times, wow! I should have switched over sooner. I'm so excited to grow my travel business with OA.

Outside Agents has exceeded my expectations. I signed up as a new travel agent with no experience. After much research, I decided to give them a try. With a small $21 monthly committment, what did I have to lose? After reading everything on their website, I really felt like it was too good to be true, but entered into the contract with my eyes wide open. I figured I would cancel if it wasn't as it appeared! Well, that was in December of 2021 and I am writing this review in February of 2024 as a travel agent who could not be happier with her choice.

Outside Agents is a family-run host agency determined to be the best in the business. I truly feel they have accomplished that based on their work ethic and dedication not only to their agents, but the industry as a whole. They provide you with a mentor, website, E&O Insurance, access to some of the best business development managers in the business, a robust CRM, generous commission splits from the beginning, and an incredible amount of online, on-demand training. I have also chosen to attend several in-person trainings at their facility in Jacksonville. Those trainings elevated my business, connected me with other agents, introduced me to some of my business development managers and allowed me to get to know the incredible group of people who run Outside Agents.

You have nothing to lose and a successful travel business to gain when you sign up with Outside Agents.
