Over the past 6+ years, it's been an amazing experience with Ticket 2 Travel and Anita. At first, we were mainly looking for an host agent that was close in proximity. Fortunately for us, we received an experienced, knowledgeable, caring, smart, and most fair host agent. Anita is always there for us agents with updates, new information, and tools to better our businesses. She always inspires us to stand out within the industry and use our individual gifts and unique talents. Saying it's a BLAST working with Ticket 2 Travel is an understatement. I truly value my affiliation with Anita and the group.
Anita Pagliasso, owner of T2T, opened my eyes to what is possible when you follow your dreams. She is confident and a very experienced business woman. People love her. I wanted to be a home based travel agent and sell what I loved. Anita provided all of the tools. I watched her follow her own passions and how she created one of the top home based agencies in the US. She is amazing. She is a believer in the power of people and the power of networks to engage and help people learn and grow. She is a leader in our industry, holding respected positions in OSSN, PATH, and has helped produce some of the nation's leading home based travel agent events.
If you have the passion to help people find their ideal travel destination and then support their dream with the best service possible, Ticket to Travel is the best home based agency to associate with.
Anita's unique blend of knowledge, passion, dedication, and compassion is an inspiration to me. Her energy and productivity are incredible. I continue to be amazed at her ability to handle multiple executive roles with her host agency, chamber of commerce, OSSN, and PATH, while also juggling with finesse her myriad roles as a public speaker, writer of books and ongoing articles, trainer, coach, marketer, and travel planner.
She shares information and ideas with us on an ongoing basis, by email, online forum, and monthly calls. She is always striving to bring us tools and special offers through her excellent industry relationships. She shines the spotlight on team members for their accomplishments or creativity. She encourages us to try new things. She has been patient with me as I learn the ropes and struggle with sticky issues. She has jumped in to advocate for me with a supplier and has coached me on lessons learned.
I enthusiastically recommend Ticket to Travel as a host agency.
I started working with Ticket to Travel in 2010. I had joined the industry through a multilevel marketing network that promised to train me in the business. I didn't even know what a host agency was at that time. After several years without any training and after reading several of Anita Pagliasso's books I decided to join her team.
Anita and her team have been very helpful to me as an agent relatively new to the business. Anita is never too busy to answer my calls and help me through new experiences.
The agents work together through a Yahoo Group and are very supportive of each other. We are constantly learning new tips and tricks through this support network that is available day or night. I am constantly amazed at the spirit of unity and help that my fellow agents are willing to give.
New this year, I have a mentor, Sandi who equally models Anita's willingness to help me grow my business.
Even though I have never personally met Anita or some of my fellow agents, I feel like I work in a "virtual office" with all of them virtually next door to my cubicle at home. They are the BEST team to work with!
I have been a home-based travel agent for the past seven years. During that time, I have been with two host agencies that have almost driven me to give up on the travel business until I was referred to Ticket to Travel. As the saying goes, “third time is a charm” is most definitely right! I do not think I can express in words how happy I have been since I’ve joined Ticket to Travel last fall. I’m more enthusiastic about making my travel business so successful that I’ve set goals for myself for the first time in a long time and now coming upon the second half of the year, I’m confident I will surpass all my goals that I have set.
From the start (including initial information call), there has always been someone at Ticket to Travel right there with you and for you. Whether it is Anita, Arleen, or your mentor, there is always someone accessible for help, especially via email and / or the networking group on Yahoo. The training is superb and definitely a key factor in attaining success. Although I have not met everyone "face to face" connected to Ticket to Travel due to the "virtualness", I can definitely feel the bond and the closeness within Ticket to Travel through the emails and networking group.
I have been associated with Anita for the past 9 years, prior to joining her team she was my Travel Agent. Her professionalism while I was her customer is one of the reasons I joined her team. When I started I thought it would be cool to be a TA, Anita showed me it is hard work if you want to be successful and her tutoring has paid off. I am constantly bombarded with offers from other companies, after doing some comparisons none of them offer the advantages of Ticket to Travel and none of them have Anita.
I did not have a host agency prior to Ticket to Travel, but I did interview three other hosts. It was very clear that Ticket to Travel is where I needed to be. I found that I looked forward to reading Anita’s monthly articles in Agent @ Home magazine, as well as the sound advice she offers. I joined Ticket to Travel in September 2008 and it was the best business decision I’ve made. She provides ongoing training and support, and is always available no matter what we need. Commissions are paid in a timely manner, and agents are encouraged to share their knowledge and expertise through our yahoo groups. My business has grown as a direct result of her guidance. Anita is personally invested in all of us. She hasn’t just created a business, but a caring family of agents. If you are seriously in the business of selling travel then I strongly recommend Ticket to Travel as your host agency. Welcome to the family!
I am so happy that I chose Anita to be my first Host Agency. I found her through Kelly Monaghan's course and I believe I couldn't have picked better! She is so compassionate about what she does! I couldn't agree more with what the other agents have said about her too. Her support is priceless and I love our networking group on Yahoo. Thank you Anita for all you have done for me!!
I have been with Ticket to Travel for approximately 5 years. I joined Ticket to Travel after doing my due-diligence to find a Host Agency that met my needs. Anita at Ticket to Travel met all of my needs. Anita is supportive, inspirational, motivational, provides monthly training, informs agents of all seminars, conferences, ship inspections, fams and etc that an agent would need to be successful. In addition, T2T has a Yahoo Group site whereby agents can communicate with other agents. This is very helpful--especially when issues arise. Anita also provides individual assistance whenever needed. She is very friendly, fun and great to be around. I sincerely enjoy working with Anita and would recommend Ticket to Travel to any agent looking for a great and supportive Host Agency that is very liberal with commissions.
I joined T2T in 2007 after I attended a local OSSN chapter meeting and several trade shows. I had previously belonged to three other home-based agencies since 1999 but none offered the means to be part of a family and gain support and training as she did. Each time I talked with Anita, her passion and joy would illuminate the room. It was an easy decision; I wanted to be a member of her Ticket to Travel family! I continue to marvel at Anita’s ability to multitask – travel is definitely in her blood!
Since I’ve been with T2T, Anita added a new segment to her business plan. Here again, she is busy at creating new strategies to help T2T agents. It’s a team of experienced T2T agents to provide mentoring to other agents! I so impressed and thankful to be part of Ticket to Travel! It’s constantly growing and changing!
What I love most about Ticket to Travel:
Anita provides all the tools to help her agents become successful in the travel trade business (support- resources-training), offers everyone the ability to communicate 24/7 (a necessity when agents are all across the US) and she hosts many social mixers for us to connect and have fun together in her home. How wonderful is that?!
