We are happy to provide information on our program for Independent Contractors. We believe we are simply the best option around for the mid- to high-volume, serious agent, and consider ourselves... "The Perfect Hosts."
Travel Experts was established in 1989, with a business model that was very unusual for that time - a Host Agency.
Today there are many Host Agencies, but we are proud to be a pioneer in establishing an environment that supports the businesses of those agents who are true entrepreneurs.
Many Host Agencies today number their agents in the high hundreds or even the thousands. Not so for Travel Experts. After 26 years, our Independent Contractors number around 300, which is by choice. Consequently our Independents represent some of the most experienced, most productive, most highly motivated movers and shakers in the business.
Travel Experts has earned national recognition as a two-time cover story in Travel Agent Magazine, as well as being featured in Travel Weekly, Travel Trade, Agent@Home, Business Leader and The Triangle Business Journal. Travel Experts has been recognized by Virtuoso as a top producer every year during the "Chairman's Recognition Event."
Consistently Rated in the Top 50 of Travel Weekly's "Power List" of the Largest Agencies in the Country!
Our network of travel counselors has many "experts" with dozens of designations, hundreds of years of experience, a multitude of languages spoken, and every country on earth visited.
