The Travel Agent Next Door asked some of its 300+ travel agents why they decided to become a home-based agent and go into business for themselves.
Agents were also asked why they chose The Travel Agent Next Door and what they would recommend most about The Travel Agent Next Door to other agents.
This column features Nikki Chatur, Owner, Karibu Travel, Hinton, AB.
The top 3 benefits of joining The Travel Agent Next Door:
- As a manager of another agency, I had to do month end in Matrix to balance the books. Now I don’t have to worry about that.
- I used to have to create my own web page. Now it’s done for me.
- I have full training available to me in all areas, so I no longer have to figure everything out for myself.
The top 3 recommends to other agents who are considering joining:
- The ease of start-up, and continued support for all issues.
- A much higher commission bracket, not just minimal split.
- Having a stress-free working environment, as it is essential for growth. And they accommodate my needs, which many groups will not.
