How to Know a HA is Legit? DMC or vacation wholesaler? Consortia for Disney?

In episode 142 Steph co-hosts with Melissa Fahs of ATHome by Atlas and they answer your questions about the wide world of travel, host agencies and advising.

Here's this week's questions:

1. How can you tell if a host is legit if they’re not listed on your site? I had an owner of a TX agency reach out to me about joining them. --Anonymous

2. Hi Steph! I'm still having trouble wrapping my head around the difference between a DMC and a vacation wholesaler and when I would use one over the other. Love your show! Thanks, Courtney F.

3. Is there a Consortium that is better for Disney focused agents? Trying to decide between two host agencies and one is affiliated with travel leaders and one is with Signature Travel network. –Anonymous
