Travel Agent Success Stories
There are a variety of ways that our agents make our travel agent development 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 income. We have heard about so many different travel agent experiences over the past decade…we’ve included just a few of them here!
Be sure to also check out our Travel Agent Journey playlist to meet a few of our agents and hear their stories.
Why KHM Travel Group?
“KHM has amazing leadership that works with their agents to ensure their business is a success. They provide training and opportunities to foster amazing agents.” – Theresa Heid, MD / A & T Paradise Travel
“Thirteen years ago we chose KHM Travel Group based on the recommendation of a stranger we met while on a Carnival cruise. This person talked so highly of KHM that we checked out the company as soon as we got home from that trip. I was impressed with what we saw and never looked any further. KHM has proven over and over their high level of integrity and commitment to the agency and all their agents and has become our second family. We trust KHM to have our best interests at the heart of their business.”

“I chose KHM Travel Group as my host agency in 2011 because they paid out the highest commission with the lowest fees. I remain a KHM agent because I continually see growth and commitment to us agents.” – Amy Burbank, CO / Purple Palm Vacations
“Information at your fingertips and no-hassle commissions. Who could ask for anything more?” – Purnella Trader, DE / New Life Destinations
“Getting to speak with suppliers, some of them new to me, puts KHM heads above all other host agencies. Non-KHM agents are always surprised when I answer their questions about the assistance we receive. Thank you all!” – Lia Kline, OH / Iguana Travel Service
“I am really enjoying the trainings and organizing of my business. This seems to be a great group I have chosen to be a part of. The trainings are reinforcing previous experience and business I have had.”

Our Educational Programs
“I started with them over 5 years ago, and had no previous travel agent training except planning my own trips! I jumped right in with Boot Camp, then Destination Success, attending webinars that were hosted by KHM along with getting to know other travel agents within the organization…I have made an extended “family” that I didn’t know I could ever have! That has been one of the biggest blessings to me! So many great agents that I can reach out to and get some assistance when needed!”
-LINDA ALLEN, GA / THE ABUNDANT LIFE TRAVELER
“I am currently in my seventh year with KHM. I am a former high school and college instructor, and choosing this as my second career is one of the best decisions I have made. I worked for a local travel agency when I first started and researched several different host agencies. I chose KHM, and that was the best choice I could have made. I have done countless trainings, webinars, Destination Success, Crystal Conferences, and many FAM trips. I have met so many agents at these events that have become lifelong friends!” – Debra Whitmore, OH / Destinations by Debra
“Destination Success was my first “live event” that I had the opportunity to attend! I was extremely impressed with how much this event offers! The abundance of information that is given to us is outstanding! I also enjoyed having the opportunity to meet our KHM staff in person as well as other agents all over the country. It makes for a much warmer conversation when you can put a name with the face! Thank you KHM! You Rock!” – Anne Marie Cronin, VA / Ocean Blue Travel Agency
“If I was asked to use one word to advise agents about Boot Camp, it would be “GO!” You will learn so much valuable information to get your business going in the right direction and the opportunity to meet the KHM staff and other agents is invaluable!” – Lori Gribben, OH / LG Custom Travel
“You guys are all great! I really enjoyed meeting everyone and your friendliness and hospitality was fantastic.” – Rick Mazzotti, IL / Mazzotti Travel
“KHM Travel Group is the best I could find because of all the support you get and everything is laid out to be easily understood and if you have a question, they are always there to help.” – Barry Chambers, NC / See U Go Travel
“Amazing Host Agency. The support is always there for all agents. You can always phone and talk to a real person every time. They always have time and support and information.”
– SABRINA KRAFT, MT / TRAVEL & TRIPS AGENCY
“If you are going to sell travel, KHM Travel Group is really the only way to go, trust me on this… KHM Travel Group will offer you great support and many vendors will teach you how to sell their product. But this is sales and it takes devotion and hard work. KHM Travel Group will give you everything but their feet to do the work and your networking opportunities are endless…” – Jim Rich, DC / Jim Rich Travel
“Brand new to the industry with no experience and KHM has been so helpful. Their simple education videos and start-up process made my launch seamless. KHM Travel Group helped walk me through those steps and worries. So thankful I chose to join them.” – Gerry Gleason, GA / Graceful Rose Adventures
“Great company with great support. Commission rates are great too. Keep in mind, this company makes you more of a real travel agent vs. a lot of the web-based travel agencies.” – Chris Light, FL / Lightster Travel
“I had owned an independent full service travel agency for 28 years then sold the lion’s share of my client list and am now booking a smaller number of clients through KHM. KHM Travel Group helped me to easily learn their system which is an efficient well thought-out system. I am very pleased with all aspects of KHM’s operation including their prompt delivery of my commissions.” – Joe Frantz, OH / Touched by Travel
“I started my travel career with a small agency. I learned a lot but had reached my earning potential and wasn’t growing. With KHM, the opportunity to learn more, have a vast platform of suppliers available to me, designated BDMs and increased commission has been phenomenal.”
