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.
Prior to joining a host agency I did my research. I picked Travel Quest because of all the educational opportunities that they spoke of prior to joining. But once I joined, oh my in addition to amazing educational opportunities, the support has been incredible, support from upper management and other agents has been impressive. I have never seen this in any industry I have previously worked. Being a new agent is overwhelming, but having Travel Quest behind you it is enjoyable and exciting. Thank you Travel Quest and thanks to Bonnie Lee for helping me on my quest to offer travel for the mobility challenged.
Bonnie, it was so great to talk with you yesterday. Accessible travel is a great niche, and your logo, OH MY GOODNESS I love it! Turtle Travel Group - "Travel for those who move a l'il slower". So cute, so spot on and so inclusive. Your love of Ireland and all things Celtic made it easy for me to connect you with Kris A. another Travel Quest Network agent who specializes in Ireland. You embody a true entrepreneurial spirit. I look forward to following you as you grow your business.
I really enjoy working with Travel Quest Network. Bonnie, Walt and their amazing staff are wonderful to work with and the training and resources they have are so helpful to make my business successful. This host agency goes and above and beyond to share great training, suppliers and so much more. The yearly conference is always so much fun, motivating and resourceful I try to attend every year.
Hi Lisa! Thank you for the compliments. I am really looking forward to seeing you at Travel Quest World (yikes it's next week 7/30). I love our conference because it gives us all the opportunity to rekindle old friendships and create new ones. This year, being together is going to be wonderful. So many great classes on building your business, marketing, peer panels & supplier update it's going to be a full week-end. See you soon.
I've been in the travel industry for a few years and I've experienced different Host models. At the end of 2019 I needed a change and I was drawn to Travel Quest after one conversation with Kerri. I felt this was the perfect fit for me. The support team is Excellent. They are efficient, knowledgeable and most of all quick to respond and helpful to resolve. 2020 was a rough year, but I've appreciated all the Educational Zoom trainings & Coaching from Anna and the Facebook trainings from Joshua and Bonnie. They really show up for their agents. I also enjoy Facebook engagement and discussion boards it really helps us support and learn from one another.
After attending an Amazing Greece FAM, with Bonnie, Walt and Anna and many fellow TA's. I now know why I was drawn to Travel Quest- It's Family. They are truly kind, caring and genuine people. Bonnie greeted me as if we hadn't seen each in a long time, but not like we just met. We all spent more than a week together and everyday was The Best Day Ever! I am very happy to be apart of this Family and I hope we continue to help each other grow and succeed.
Nadine! #bestdayever for certain. I love traveling with Travel Quest Network agents and getting to know them and share our stories and our personal travel journey. Our goal is to deliver best in class service starting with the first call and every call after. Walt, Kerri, Anna, myself and everyone at Travel Quest Network are delighted to be your partner in success!
I am new to the travel industry with fewer than 3 official years under my belt. I have been so grateful for the training, resources, and -most importantly- the PEOPLE at Travel Question. When I need support, there is an actual person one the other end, working to help solve problems, provide direction, and meet the needs of the travel agents who work with Travel Quest.
I recently had the privilege of attending a FAM with a number of TQ agents and with Bonnie, Walt, and Anna, and they are all genuine, caring people who love travel, love people, and strive to support one another. This isn't a competition - it is team work, and I appreciate how Travel Quest creates that teamwork culture to help travel agents as they provide service and help make memories for their clients.
It was so wonderful traveling with you and Joseph on the Greece FAM. We strive as a company to be authentic, supportive, and professional. I was inspired by the enthusiasm and camaraderie of our members. Thank you for helping make the trip a fantastic experience.
I moved my business over to Travel Quest in 2017, from another host agency that I started with in 2004. There is NOT a day that goes by that I am extremely grateful to be a member of TQ. I should have switched host agencies years before!!! The support, knowledge and technology helps make running by business possible by allowing me to focus on my clients. Their full focus is making sure their agents are successful and are not distracted with running other travel businesses or programs. Bottomline, what I love the most about TQ is the kindness. From Bonnie to Walt to Anna and of course Joshua and the rest of the team, they exude true kindness!!!
Lauren, Thank you so much for your kind words. From the moment Travel Quest Network was born back in the 90's Walt's and my goal was to have Travel Quest mirror our values. Start every day thankful, be kind, learn something new every day, share what we have learned, and ALWAYS work to exceed the expectations of our agents when it comes to service. Have a wonderful day!
Though I could go on and on about the greatness of TQ's staff, owner, fellow TAs and training, what sets TQ apart is the feeling of family. My TQ family is always uplifting and caring. We each want the other to succeed and we all recognize this journey takes a great deal of patience, time and creativity. Everyone is always available to help another. It's not about fighting against competitors, it's about walking with each other towards success. That's TQ.
Zola, Thank you so much for the kind words. I love "it's about walking with each other towards success." I could not be more proud than to walk the journey with you and all of our Travel Quest Network agents. See you at Travel Quest World 2021!
I first learned of TQN during HAR Host week. Being a new agent, I was looking for a host agency that offered training and support. TQN has exceeded my expectations!! Thank you Kerri, Anna, and the entire TQ team for everything you do for us!
It is so much a team effort here at Travel Quest Network!
Nothing makes me smile brighter and bigger than hearing that as a team we have exceeded your expectation.
Have a wonderful day,
I started my travel career in January 2020 just before the pandemic hit. I ended up taking some time off from promoting my new business while the -anemic was in full swing. Now that things are slowly beginning to open up again, I started booking travel for folks. When I ran into some issues with logging in to the updated systems (updated during the time I was not working), Kerri and Jesse at Travel Quest were super helpful in getting me back up and running. Thank you to my wonderful host agency Travel Quest. You make my life so much easier as an agent.
Hi Rebecca! I know 2020 didn't end up being what you expected but I've enjoyed getting to know and work with you over the last year. It's wonderful to hear things are starting to pick up and we appreciate the kind words thanking Travel Quest Network. I can't wait to see what the upcoming years bring for you!
