I spent 6 months vetting various host agencies, and without a doubt, I know I have made the right decision not just for my business, but for my future, by joining Travel Edge as an IC.
The level of support and the team spirit are first class, but it's the constant drive to innovate that ultimately reminds me I work with the best in the industry.
Their investment in technology - while not always perfect - is testament to their committment to this innovation. Coming from brick & mortar to work from home, I felt like I'd been working in the dark ages once I took ADx for a run! LOL
If you're looking for a host agency with great support and technology, you'll find a good home at Travel Edge.
I love being a Travel Edge agent! I have been a part of the team since 2020 and there are lots of resources available to assist with each person's success. Management does an excellent job of getting each region together for events. There are trade shows and networking opportunities as well. In addition, there is a dedicated team to help with training. It is a great environment whether you are a seasoned veteran or just getting started. I plan to stay with Travel Edge for the long haul!
A travel advisor who retired from the industry heard my passion for travel during a friendly lunch. She insisted I joined the industry and introduced me to Travel Edge. A few days later I became a luxury travel advisor and Travel Edge has been my host agency and like a family to me. I love how accessible everyone in every department is from corporate, finance, marketing, air and our community on FB, I always get the supoort I need. I love the recognition Travel Edge gets in our industry and our reputation as a luxury travel agency. I am always proud to be part of the team and I reflect this in all my networking at travel shows, conventions, interviews and my social media platforms. I love my association with Travel Edge and love how much we have grown and keep growing together. I love the opportunity to inspire clients to Be well traveled, to be travelers and not tourists and with my expert knowledge of hundreds of destinations around the world I love curating the perfect vacation for my travelers.
Initially I was told about Travel Edge at an event. I then researched the company to check out their benefits to agents. Let's just say one of the best decisions I've made in the nearly 17 years I've been in the industry. Travel Edge makes me fill like I'm part of a team. They focus on the luxury traveler and they have the benefits to match. The technology is the latest and IT support is amazing. The staff is extremely professional and very responsive. Being with Travel Edge has afforded me so many opportunities to participate in Conferences, FAMs and more. I didn't get this type of opportunities from my previous host, I had to build my own relationships for these opportunities.
I have been with Travel Edge just over 2 years. They made the transition for a traditional store front to Independent easy. They support their agents though many channels and are always working to negotiate great relationship with suppliers. They are always positive, helpfully, and proactive. Amazing people.
In 2019, I joined the Travel Edge Network as an IC. I was brand new to the industry and to sales. I'm so grateful that TEN took a chance on me and, four years (and a pandemic) later, I know I couldn't have chosen a better host agency. Shortly after joining, I connected with a couple of local advisors and was also paired with an official mentor, all of whom helped guide me through the initial phases of learning about selling travel. It also helped tremendously that TEN has proprietary technology (read: easy to learn and use), to book and invoice. But, I think that TEN's secret sauce is its network of incredibly supportive advisors, who help each other brainstorm options, who offer insights on destinations and suppliers and who help make connections. That coupled with the leadership's forward looking approach and investment in the advisors (through organization of and access to networking events and FAM opportunities), is also invaluable. Finally, it's undeniable that TEN's name carries a tremendous amount of weight in the industry among suppliers, who go the extra mile for our clients. All in all, I'm so glad that I am finally in the right industry for me and certainly with the best host agency I can imagine.
I joined Travel Edge in 2020 as an IC for the first time on the advice of a friend in the industry who introduced me to the ADX platform and the technology really blew us both away and truly sets them apart. It was the main thing that attracted me but I am continually impressed by the business moves made and ways that they invest in the company and their advisors. From the marketing which attracts the luxury clientele I am looking to grow my business with, to the way they are constantly evolving with new ideas and ventures, to the people and relationships formed and incredible opportunities presented that have significantly impacted my business and my experience. I highly recommend joining the Travel Edge family!
I joined Travel Edge during the pandemic and I could not be any happier. The management team is incredibly supportive of every travel advisor. I am proud to be on the Travel Edge team and feel free to reach out to me if you are considering changing host agencies. My business is Luxury focused and they align with my philosophy and my goals. I could not ask for anything else.
I joined Travel Edge Network (TEN) in January 2019 as a new to the industry advisor. I joined at a time of rapid expansion and acquisition of mostly established agents, and TEN didn't have a robust program for onboarding newer agents. This was discussed when I joined, so my expectations were properly managed. However, it was a hard first year. Followed by a pandemic. However, I am so proud to be working with TEN and have seen their investments in ADX (our proprietary booking software) and training pay off for me in large ways. While the programs were not in place when I joined, Ken Neibaur and Michelle Leal were always available to troubleshoot a problem I was facing or provide me opportunities to grow my business.
Going into my 4th year as an advisor, I am approaching $1M in annual sales and my business continues to grow by offering my clients great experiences through TEN negotiated partners and beyond.
I have been with Travel Edge since August 2020. I was formerly an employee with a local travel agency here in Nashville. I joined Travel Edge as an Independent Contractor. They have been supportive from the start. I love the new ADX booking system. This being my second career, I struggled with learning SABRE for bookings and had an air agent who booked my air for me at my previous agency. With Travel Edge's ADX booking system, I am able to book flights for my clients with ease. I was losing so much in commissions before and did not even realize it. Now, I am able to earn commissions on all the parts of travel that I book for my clients.
Additionally, Travel Edge is all about educating their IC's and offering travel experiences. I have been able to attend DUCO France, the Ensemble Conference, and ILTM America. I love getting to meet with suppliers one on one.
I do love the Limitless Events that Travel Edge offers that are happening at least twice a year.
The management team is responsive and supportive. I truly feel that I have a home.
