Travel Agent Business Success Stories
There are a variety of ways that our agents make our travel agent training program work for them. Some work full-time, as their main source of income; while others work fewer hours and focus on enjoying the flexibility and fun travel opportunities their part-time incomes allow. Regardless of why our agents decide to enroll or how many hours they choose to devote to their businesses, there’s an equal amount of potential for success.
Every day we hear from travel agents who, in the process of following their passion for travel, have expanded both their travel knowledge and personal incomes. We have heard about so many different travel agent experiences over the past decade…and our collection of success stories only keeps on growing!
Our Training Program
“I came from another host agency that didn’t supply much training at all, and if I called them, they talked around my questions and used industry terminology that I didn’t understand. They were so unapproachable that I never wanted to ask for help anymore and ended up getting training any place I could. Unfortunately, I would take training webinars and supplier training from anyone. I was spread out all over the place! This is only my second month with KHM Travel Group and I feel so relieved to have a direction to follow. KHM Travel Group really does seem to care–and it shows! I really would like to express my appreciation to KHM Travel Group for your help and I’m looking forward to a long, long, long association here.” – Mark Hallock, CO / Platinum Service Travel
- Crystal Rogers, OH / Crystal and Friends Travel
“I appreciate all the time you gave me to ‘direct me’ as to how to proceed in my quest to achieve success in the travel business. I see now how important it is to specialize & not try to go too fast in the learning process.” – Ken Altizio, NY / Action Travel Planners

“They are not a company that is going to just issue an ID card and tell you to go sell travel… There is a very strong focus on providing education and product knowledge… The office support for home based agents is great. They have always been willing to answer questions and provide guidance. They are very interested in making sure that you succeed as an agent. (Also, I looked in to other companies, and KHM Travel Group had one of the best commission structures that I found as well.)” – Melissa Rice, OH / Silver Slippers Travel
