Welcome to our first ever TQ Ticket!

We will be sending out a monthly email to keep you updated with the latest news in the travel industry, answer your FAQs, invite to events around the country and, of course, to get you to know Travel Quest a bit better.

We love to get to know our agents and we love to share what's happening in the office.  So let us take this time to introduce ourselves to you!

Bonnie & Walt Lee accepting Travel Leaders' Associate of the Year AwardTravel Quest began in 1994 as a one-woman home-based travel agency. After her first host agency unexpectedly went bankrupt and her second host agency began with-holding commissions, Bonnie Lee decided there must be a better way. In 1998 she founded a new kind of host agency — a reputable, honest, customer-focused host agency where the travel agent comes first. Since then, Travel Quest has grown into a leading national travel host, recognized for its emphasis in customer service, training and agent support. To this day, Travel Quest remains family owned and operated: Bonnie Lee is the CEO and Walter Lee  handles the finances.

Industry FAQs
We talk to a lot of agents that are just starting out in the travel industry. We've decided to take some of our most frequently asked questions, and answer a few of them in each newsletter!
  • How much does it cost to get started?
We have a one-time start-up fee of $199.  This covers a required background check and everything else involved with getting your account set-up.  We have 4 different commissions plans ranging from 70% to 100%.  The 70% plan has no monthly fee.  Take a look at our site for all of our commission plans and their monthly prices.  All plans give you access to our interactive agent forum, over 200 vendor contacts, robust commission manager, $2 million E&O insurance, our exclusive social media content website and more.
  • What type of training is included?
Travel Quest has a variety of vendor specific training's available on demand.   We have found that vendor specific training benefits the agent most.  When it comes time to book you will have the knowledge of which vendor will best suit your customer.  We also offer a Certificated Travel Leisure Specialist and Certificated Business Travel Specialist programs.  These programs do have a cost and are offered through Travel Leaders.
  • Do you carry E & O insurance?
Yes, we do carry Errors and Omissions insurance for our agents, as a part of our program. However, the deductible is $5,000 per incident. For more information on what E&O Insurance is, what it covers, or whether or not you should purchase your own, check out this great article by Stephanie over at Host Agency Reviews!

What's new with TQ?
Creating programs to help our agents is what we love to do and lately, we've been busy.  Our newest addition that we think is pretty great is our Content Crusader.

Social media struggles? Have no fear, the Content Crusader is here! 

The TQ Content Crusader is an added value available to all TQ Agents. This innovative social media tool provides agents with an expansive library of articles, videos, photos, and recommended post. With content being updated on a daily basis, and more than 130 categories to choose from; agents now have a 'go-to-spot' for those hectic days, when thinking of what to post is a struggle. Agents can use the content on their own Facebook, Twitter, Google+, blogs, websites, etc. 

What's in the pipeline for the Content Crusader? 
We're planning on expanding the site to include travel trivia, travel reviews, and more!
Thank you for taking the time to check out our new newsletter!  If you have any questions or would like to suggest something for our next issue, simply reply to this email.

Have a great rest of your week!
