About Travel Quest

TQ’s owner, Bonnie Lee, started as a home based travel agent but was so frustrated with the poor service she received from multiple host agencies, she decided to start her own. Travel Quest began in 1998, built upon Bonnie’s vision of what a host agency should be: reliable, honest and friendly.


We take pride in being an agent centered host agency. If you call in, you won’t get any automation, you’ll get a live person to help you out. We also offer email support and our online Agent Portal is available 24/7.
