I joined Travel Quest Network in 2018. I had not a clue what I was really doing even with all of my research. At the time there wasn’t a lot of education but it was like a family and everyone was willing to help when I had questions. I’ve heard things can get tense in other host agency Facebook groups when newbies ask for help. I did not deal with that at Travel Quest. I took a bit of a break during the pandemic for personal reasons that had nothing to do with Travel Quest. Now there is a lot more education and it’s a bigger group of ICs but I don’t feel lost in it. They are continuouslyg improving and there have been some changes that I was nervous about only to find that these changes were for our betterment. I’m so glad I signed on with Travel Quest and I look forward to continuing this partnership.
Wow, wow wow. I can't say enough good things about TQN. I changed recently after a rough first year at a small host agency that was quite honestly a mess. I love not having to fight tooth and nail for my commissions. They pop up on time under "Commission Manager" and it's so easy to follow along. The times I've had to reach out to the team they've been SO nice and helped right away! Great followup. There's also a Facebook page where the other advisors answer within MINUTES. Thank you for transforming my business and finally making it profitable. Can't wait to attend an in-person event.
I'm a researcher and very detail oriented. When I began the search for a host agency to start a travel career, I started at Host Agency Reviews and contacted countless host agencies. I asked questions on top of questions so much so that I probably annoyed everybody. I kept notes from all the answers and then weighed all the information against each other. Travel Quest Network was head and shoulders above the rest. That's just the initial, outside looking in assessment though. Once I joined, I was welcomed into the family. The training resources are abundant as are the suppliers that Travel Quest Network has relationships with. The commission rates are top tier for all of them. Other agents have been so helpful with sharing information, making suggestions, and offering encouragement. As others have said, it really is like a family. After attending the annual conference, Travel Quest World 2021, in Las Vegas, I was blown away at the encouragement, motivation, and information that I received. Everyone from the Travel Quest Network top management down to other fellow agents, were so friendly, helpful, and encouraging. It was truly an uplifting time. After a year of being with Travel Quest Network, I can say that I'm 100% satisfied with my decision. They are continually making improvements and adding more resources to help all of us. They truly are partners in my travel career. If you're serious and looking to start a travel career, you have to check out Travel Quest Network! Thank you to everyone at Travel Quest Network and to all my fellow agents. I won't list names as I know I'll forget someone. You won't find a better group of people or a better host agency.
I joined in September 2021 and have had sooooo much fun learning my new career. When you join Travel Quest you really are connected to industry experts that can help you in every aspect of starting your business. Their connections with travel suppliers and with Travel Leaders makes Travel Leaders an obvious choice for a host agency for a new travel advisor.
Thank you, Ellen!
Travel Quest has been fabulous so far - responsive, helpful, and a great group of supportive people. Appreciate access to a large network of suppliers and options. There are trainings everywhere, and the support team responds promptly, and the other agents are a great group of people. I'm so glad I chose TQ as my host agency.
Hello Katie, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are happy you decided you join Travel Quest Network and look forward to watching your business grow!
I cannot stress enough how amazing TQN is. I came from a very unprofessional and toxic agency so you can imagine my surprise when I was surrounded with professional and kind people. The training actually teaches you how to have a successful business, not just vendor trainings like my previous agency. I am always able to get any question answered, whether through email, phone, or the Facebook group. The professionalism, positivity, kindness, and their passion to see everyone succeed is contagious and makes me want to work even harder. Joining TQN quite literally changed not just mine, but my family's lives as well. Business is good and I couldn't have done it without them.
Hi Ashli, Thank you so much for the fantastic review! I remember chatting with you about joining Travel Quest Network and am so glad to hear you are loving it. The education team worked very hard on Travel Quest University to help our agents become successful business owners and industry knowledge. I can't wait to watch your business keep growing.
I did a lot of research before deciding which host agency I wanted to join as a brand new travel advisor, and I initially decided to go with Travel Quest Network because I was impressed with the education they offer, the breadth of supplier connections they have, and the personal touch I could see -even when reading reviews posted here on HAR. Having been with TQN for a little over 7 months now, I am 100% certain that I made the best choice in host agencies that I could have made. What you put into your education, business development and relationships with other TQN affiliated agents and Travel Quest staff/leadership you will absolutely get back and then some. The folks at Travel Quest want you to be successful and the support they give is both personal and professional. In the time I’ve been with Travel Quest I’ve seen constant innovation and opportunities being created by the network to empower agents and support the growth of their businesses. I have met so many amazing people through this network, I’ve laughed through online meetings, and frankly, I’ve cried too -listening to Bonnie Lee, TQN’s president, give some beautiful, inspiring speeches at Travel Quest World about getting out of your comfort zone and believing in yourself. Over and over again you’ll see agents refer to Travel Quest Network as feeling like family and it really does, in the best possible way. I feel grateful every day to be a part of it! Thank you Bonnie, Joshua, Anna, Walt, Jason and all the rest of the Travel Quest team!
Hannah, thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was great to meet you in person at Travel Quest World. We work very hard to provide exceptional service to our agents as well as treating each agent as if they were family. Our goal is to help launch and support each of our independent entrepreneurs. I will let everyone at Travel Quest Network know about your wonderful review as we are truly a team.
I joined Travel Quest in August 2019, and my experiences with the staff and leadership have been uniformly positive. When I have questions or need help, the office folks have been consistently helpful. They've improved the training for beginners since I started, and I think it's much improved. I feel like TQ is kind of the 'Goldilocks' host for me: big enough (and connected to the much bigger Travel Leaders) to give agents the benefit of better access to and in some cases higher commission levels with suppliers. Small enough that I can email the principals in the agency and get a reply, or interact with them on social media. Their Facebook community has been _incredibly_ helpful to me as a newer agent. Coming out of a previous work environment that was frankly toxic, it's been nice to work, even though it's virtually, with people who are all 'pulling together' rather than in separate directions. Although my entry into the travel business could've been better timed (thanks, Covid shutdowns), I wouldn't trade my host agency.
Beau, it was so nice to meet you on the Greece FAM! I love the "Goldilocks" analogy. We are so proud of our staff at Travel Quest Network; they truly exemplify professionalism and working as a team for the benefit of our agents. Stay tuned because we have many new agent tools and programs launching in 2021-2022 to help grow and support your individual businesses.
I had a very stressful position in the insurance industry and never had time to travel. One of the best decisions I ever made was to go into the travel business and the best decision (after researching many options) was to go with Travel Quest. The company is responsive, helpful, lots of training and assistance. As a retiree this is part time for me and I have often said "when it becomes a job I will stop". But Walt and Bonnie Lee, the founders of Travel Quest, make it difficult to even consider stopping. Their personal connection with all of the agents is amazing.
Kris, I love "When it becomes a job I will stop." Being able to make the transition from a full-time stressful job to a part-time business you enjoy, is the perfect example of making your business YOUR business. A business that is what YOU want it to be, no cookie-cutter forms or must do's, You are in control of your dreams, goals, and how you spend your days. I can't think of a better way to retire than to retire INTO travel.
Travel Quest Network is fabulous to work with! They are very helpful when you are just getting started and provide very thorough training. If you need help, there is a team there for you. I felt very secure in the beginning of becoming an independent agent and love the support I get after several years with TQN. Bonnie Lee is a wonderful agency owner who is easy to talk to and lend support in any way she can. I also appreciate the annual conference as Travel Quest World provides education and networking. Getting to meet fellow agents and the travel represenatives is extremly helpful in my business.
Alisa, You are a true entrepreneur! Your Youtube channel and social media presence are amazing. I am so proud that Travel Quest Network was able to play a part in your success. Travel Quest World is next week and I can't wait! It's so rewarding to meet new agents and renew old friendships (especially now after Covid). Lots of exciting new things and lots of opportunities to update existing knowledge. Thank you for taking us along on your journey to success.
