What is a host agency?
Not only do we plan exceptional travel for our clients, but we are also committed to helping travel advisors succeed! We are dedicated to modernizing the traditional host agency structure, putting our advisors at the top of our priorities. We tackle the three greatest challenges advisors face today: lack of community, lack of clarity, and an abundance of barriers. So, what exactly does this mean?
Individual Travel Advisors
As an individual travel advisor, we provide all the support you need. We’ve got you covered with mentorship and guidance to build your book of business and a lead generation program to grow your client base. Our collaborative community works together to answer any and all questions and we love to celebrate everyone’s victories. This allows you to stay motivated and direct your focus on what you do best: serving clients and planning travel.
Building Your Own Team
If you’re looking to build your own company and team of advisors, we provide assurance and guidance as an experienced agency. You’ll benefit from business model consulting, a collaborative community of fellow team leaders to grow alongside, and the backend support necessary to protect you from the tedious aspects of owning your own business.
BE The Travel’s Success Story
We spoke with Bailie White, founder of BE The Travel, to show how our host agency works with entrepreneurs! BE The Travel has been one of Jetset World Travel’s success stories of growing a solid team using the benefits that come with a host agency. Bailie has flourished in the travel industry for years and after establishing her own company of talented advisors, she made the decision to sell her business and start a new chapter!
How did you start in the travel industry and when did you join Jetset World Travel?
What were you specifically looking for when looking for a host agency to grow your business?
What were your favorite parts of being a travel advisor and owning your own business?
My favorite part of being a travel advisor was learning about our world & making friends across the globe. My most loved memories are from FAM trips, sitting at a big table with people from all over the world who don’t all look like me, believe the same things I believe, or live life exactly how I do. I learned and grew so much as a person!
Any tips for the aspiring travel advisors and business owners?
Although it wasn’t my story, if you find yourself wanting to forever be an independent travel advisor, there is a lot of beauty in that route. And, you have several outstanding host agencies to choose from – Jetset included!
However, if you’re someone who is looking to build a business within the walls of a larger host agency, do extensive research on what contracts will best support you, and what host agencies will help you grow your business how you want to grow it. Don’t rush this process, because who you decide to host with will be a major part of your journey! If you’re asking me, I think you’ll learn that there is a little something extra special to be found at Jetset World Travel for the travel entrepreneurs like me.
