Is life is better traveling the right host Travel agency for you?

Are you thinking of becoming a travel agent but not sure where to start?  Maybe you want to turn your travel business into a full-time job, but you aren't barely making part-time pay?  Is the search for the right host travel agency tiring and frustrating?  

I have been there myself when I first started out.  I didn't know where to start.  I went with a host travel agency where I was one of thousands of agents.  I felt lost in the numbers and it took days to get answers.  

I was weeding through emails and websites trying to determine who would help me grow my travel agency.  I had only been with my host travel agency for 18 months, when I knew I wanted to own my own agency which they did not support.  When I founded Life is Better Traveling I knew I wanted to foster a genuine, reliable, and honest-to-goodness brand where travel agents would be enriched, valuable, earn the income and build the travel businesses they wanted.  If you are looking for a host agency who is 100% supportive of only YOU, then Life is Better Traveling may be the right fit for you.  Don't settle for less.

I joined the team at Life is Better Traveling 1.5 years ago. I was looking for a way to get started in the travel business while I am at home with my babies, and Mary, our agency owner, knew exactly where I was coming from. She is a working mom, too, and understands the craziness! While I feel I am often torn in so many directions, Mary is nothing but encouraging and helpful. She is available via call, email, or text and responds quickly. She readily answers all questions, big and small.

We have so many videos on our travel consultant web page to reference as well as our own travel consultant Facebook group!  This is an easy way to ask questions of the group if you need help with a booking or location you are not familiar with. I have found everyone to be super helpful, not at all competitive!  The Zoom meetings are not mandatory, but they have been great during the craziness of 2020.  Being able to see and talk to our team and bounce ideas off each other has been priceless.  I have learned from the experience of Mary and more seasoned team members who specialize in different areas too!

From day one, Mary has been encouraging and empowering. She has shared her knowledge and many resources. She has given me the confidence to look at working as an IC as a fulfilling career choice that I have made for the long-term. She is always available to answer any questions that I have, and shares real-world advice as well as realistic perspectives. Her accessibility is that something which I greatly appreciate, and I firmly believe it has been a key factor in my early and continued success. I highly value the leadership and direction of this wonderful company, and especially the personal and genuine commitment that Mary makes to her ICs. Mary's wholehearted dedication to the success and growth of her ICs shines through in everything that she does. I think that her leadership, time and the expertise that she pours into this company, make Life is Better Traveling the true *whole* package. It is a great agency for a wide range of ICs spanning from beginners in the industry, to seasoned experts looking for a fantastic home base.

I choose Life is Better Traveling as my host agency for a number of reasons. I had a close family member recommend Mary as an agent a few times and I knew if they used her as an agent then she knows her stuff! I was also looking for a host agency that had a lot of training and support. The amount of support Mary and the team give is out of this world! Not only are there regular zoom calls with the team but I also feel totally comfortable texting anyone with questions! Mary has a whole portal set up for new agents to train and she records every mastermind session! As a newer agent, I have had lots and lots of questions and everyone on Mary's team has been amazing at answering all of them! Most of all I feel the agents care about each other! We all want each other to succeed and grow our businesses and all work together to better each other!

Being a part of the LIBT team is amazing!!! If we have an issue or a problem, we can reach out to the team for help. We love to bounce ideas off of each other so that we are able to be the best that we can be for our clients. Mary is always available to answer any questions that we may have and she offers us many ways to train and learn about suppliers. Our team zoom calls are an awesome way for us to connect as a team and ask our questions to each other. We are all becoming such great friends and co-workers. I love being a part of the LIBT team!!

Mary and LiBT have been great to work with. I came into this experience with no travel industry training and Mary has been patient and kind as I adjust to the learning curve. LiBT now has a more formal training and development program than when I started and I would currently give it 5 stars now that this program is in place. That was the only piece missing when I joined a few months ago. Her training program has been very educational so far. The commission structure is fair and clearly explained. Mary and the other consultants are easy to work with and supportive. Mary is always available when I have questions and I couldn't ask for a better mentor in this journey.
