Questions You Should Know The Answers To…

Prior to creating our New Agent Learning Program we did our homework. From our research, we found there are many differences in what host agencies offer. Here are some key questions you will want to ask when talking to us and to any other host agency.

Marketing:

  • Is marketing included in your fees or is it an extra fee?
  • Do they do the marketing for you and from you or do they create the material and you have to do it?
  • Is there a combination of marketing channels?
    • Direct Mail (Canada Post)
    • Targeted E-Marketing
    • E-Newsletters

Lead Generation:

  • Do they guarantee the number of leads?
  • How are the leads generated?
  • Do they have a referral program that compensates friends or colleagues
  • that refer new customers to you?

Contract:

  • What is the length of the contract you will be asked to sign? Buyer beware! Some contracts are for 5 year terms and even after 5 years the contract says you are not able to work in the travel industry for 1 more year.
  • Are there many additional fees for marketing, websites, telephone that you should know before making your decision?

Personal Website:

  • Do they offer a personalized bookable website in their fees?
  • Does their website have booking engines that include Hotel, Car, Cruise, Packages, Insurance & Excursions?
  • Are you responsible for updating the content on your site or is it done for you?

Training:

  • How is the training delivered? Is it live (via webinar), prerecorded or classroom?
  • What materials will you receive? Will you receive actual textbooks and workbooks from an accredited training institute or is it a binder compiled by the host agency?
  • Does the host agency require you to make your bookings in Sabre or Apollo? While these tools may financially benefit the host agency, it’s not so easy for a new agent. These tools are difficult to learn and consume a significant portion of your scheduled training program.

And the final question, one of the most important questions for you personally:

  • After you start with your host agency, are you supported by a team dedicated exclusively to new agents or by an accessible, experienced agent of that host agency?

The above questions are key to know the answers to before moving forward with any host agency. As they always say, the devil is in the details! We would love an opportunity to review the program with you one on one. First we suggest you watch the webinar and then we will follow up with an email that contains a link to the frequently asked questions section. Alternatively you can call Rhonda, VP of Talent Development toll free at 1-855-727-8126.
