I am signed up with Oasis (they are affiliated with Palm Coast Travel, btw) and I like them... they definitely offer some great benefits (not the least of which is being involved with the Signature Network), however, I also was led to believe that the cost to book was $29 per trip no matter what the commission was (unless it was under $100 and then it was supposedly an 80/20 split with you keeping 80%). But I recently received notice from them that they are going to an 80/20 split for all bookings. And when I looked closer at my contract I discovered that the $29 booking fee only applied if the commission was under $159. I mean it SAID that in the contract, which I hadn't read as thoroughly as I should have because I had spoken to someone there and believed I fully understood the program. Silly me. And to be honest, I'm kind of pissed about that. Their website still STATES the thing about $29/booking no matter what the commission is!!!

I still think they have a lot to recommend them, esp. for independent agents working solo. Great commission levels, good support and, if you can afford it, their top level of membership ($79/mo) offers some very amazing tools that will help you immensely. However, that's kind of a big chunk for someone fairly new to the biz, so you might want to consider other options.

Another one I'm looking at is Outsideagents.com (affiliated with Cruises and Tours Unlimited... who I have been told is a big nasty discounter!)... but they don't charge a monthly fee at all... just the 80/20 split and if you do enough volume that drops to 90/10! They also offer you a lot of support and training... and they give you Revelex Power Agent booking engine for FREE... which is awesome. I think it's the best engine in the biz and I worked for one agency that charged me $25/mo just for that alone. For new agents, no monthly fees is going to be VERY attractive & hard to beat.

I'm with all of you. Trying to find a trustworthy host. @ceesiren, When did you start with OASIS? Have you gotten any biz from OASIS and have you gotten paid from them? Is the biz that you have gotten from them consistant and have they paid you on time? How is their staff, are they as helpful as they say? Has anyone complained about them? I tried to look them up on the BBB but there is nothing on them that I could find. Did you have to take their training? If so was it worth the $399.00? I'm at the entry level of the travel industry so I'm just trying to gather information before I commit. Thanks any information anyone can give re: OASIS or any other travel host is very much appreciated.

I found Oasis and OutsideAgents.com on the bbb.org in USA under thier affiliate name (found on the websites outsideagents.com and oasisagent.com "about us page" that had the affilliate name and address)
Outsideagents.com had an A+ bbb rating under the different affiliate name and Oasis had a B+ bbb rating under thier affilited name. Not sure if that means that the actual business name is the same or not.
KHM is under its own name with an A+ bbb rating. I had been looking at them for a while. They also sell a product called Luxevo (savings club?). You get residual income from this one, but it is about $100.00 to start and $49.00 per month. So now I am really confused. I am in a business that I think is awesome but it is a dental/health discount savings plan with complete markedting and training. It costs $50 to 75.00 a month. MLM etc. It seems like you could do well with it and people are. But I hate to shell out more and not do well with it. Although, travel sounds like a top work at home job.

I just noticed on the Oasis affiliate name on the bbb.org USA site that there is a red alert Link and when clicked on it there is a note about there is a government action on the company. What ever that means, but I am staying away from Oasis. UGH!

I believe it has to do with them selling travel insurance incorrectly. It should be straightened out soon.

Yes. Training isn't as easy with KHM, but you aren't looped into a $50 /mo for a year contract with KHM either. I liked their training so I signed up for both not knowing that KHM contracted you for a year and outside agents didn't. So in comparing the 2 free is better with no strings in outside agents, but not as easy training, no website or extras either. Still wish I just went with Outside Agents to save a monthly charge. But Great training with KHM even though I am stuck. :)

I was with KHM Travel it cost me 99.00 dollars to join and a monthly fee I think like 49.95 a month for the booking engine and if you want want the Luxevo Program it is extra. I am trying out Outside Agents who has been around since 1992 their parent name is Cruises and Tours Unlimited. And they are pretty reasonable actually it is free to begin. If you don't have a lot to invest right away I would chose them, and the commissions are 80% if you use them to help you book, but I you book yourself it is like 100%. Also they do not discriminate Canadians. I am sure they would love to have you aboard. Also Outside Agents was on the top ten hosting agents site. Good Luck

I was just reading about KHM. ems like alot to get started especially if on a tight budget. Ive been looking for something to do from home and there are so many scams out there its unbelievable. I was with Global Travel years ago but also had a fulltime job so I didn't put in the effort I should have. From what I remember there wasn't much support and training at all. I think I will look into Outside agents.
Thanks for all the info!

Question: Despite the fact that you are with held in a 1 year contract, is the experience paying off? How are you liking the job/career? I am curious to know because I am actually interested in KHM myself. As far as outside agents or Oasis, you would rather work for them because it's free? Even though they do not provide proper training or none at all to new agents? I don't know, I think I would love to get trained and perform well even if there is a fee. However, if I can be trained without having to pay a fee, then that's even better! I just doubt any business would do that, especially if there is a huge payout involved. Anyways,please let me know your thoughts on this matter. Thanks and stay blessed!

I have another question. Has anyone heard of MMV-Magical Moments Vacations. They specialize in Disney Vacations. I am just curious to know if this could be something to consider as well. I know that Disney Parks will be profitable because Disney is such a huge brand. But just need more information about this particular travel agency host. If anyone knows something about it please let me know. So far, all I have found out is that there is only a 100.00 payment for the E&O. The owner, Ms. Jen states that she is an agent herself and believes in agents being able to work, earn and learn without all of the unnecessary fees that most host agencies provide. This seems ideal being that I'm completely new and strained financially-hence, wanting to work from home. Please comment if you have any advice.

I am looking at both KHM and Outside Agents as well. I am brand new and need the best training possible. It seems that KHM has that, as well as weekly webinars and conference calls. It seems to me that the training might be worth the monthly fee and support. Has anyone recently worked with either. A lot of these posts are older, so wanted to see if there is anymore recent information. Thanks!!!

I have been with KHM going on 4 years and I love them. You may have to pay a fee but it is worth every penny just with the training they provide. They also have training at their offices 4 times a year, 2 times for new agents coming in and they also have training for veteran agents agents twice a year. They have wonderful fams quite a few times a year. The owners and the agents are what makes this company, it is like having an extended family. Everyone goes out of their way to help each other and we love getting to see old friends and make new ones on the fams we go too. I have never had a problem receiving my commission and once you achieve the status of Pinnacle which is having 100,000 in sales a year you go up to 90/10 split. As far as their techonology it has taken a while but they didn't want to put anything out there to their agents that was inferior so we should have it within 2 weeks. They do have their website that we can put our brand on but I choose to have my own website as well because I want to sell myself and book my clients so I can form a relationship with them. If anyone want to know more about them I would be happy to answer any questions.

This review is a joke. Must be from a KHM Staff member.

They rake in money from unqualified people who don't know the first thing about the travel industry giving professional agents a bad name.

As far as the community and "Family" by all means if you enjoy working with other agents who ask questions like: "Is a passport required for travel to (insert euopean country here)?" Then knock yourself out and sign up.

The "training" they offer new agents requires travel to them, which isn't free.

Their promised technology upgrades have been in the works for YEARS.

They require that client documents are sent to them, then deduct the cost to send them to you out of commissions.

They frequently do not pay commission on items booked on their joke of a website.

There reporting system is cumbersome and is 1980 technology at best.

I now work with a Host Agency that actually cares about Agents, not just collecting a monthly fee. I pay nothing, get more support and training than I ever received from KHM, have already had FAM opportunities and work with a group of Travel Profrssionals not a bunch of unqualified hobbyists.

STAY AWAY FROM KHM!

I found a host in San Juan Capistrano called Authorized Agents. They pay 80%- so far did not stick me with any fees except for Errors and Omissions at $5 per month. They are part of Signature. What I like is that they don't sell direct - but a little strange on the name since their consumer name is Travelmakers. Been with them 5yrs but retiring this year. Website is AuthorizedAgents.com

Global Travel is another hosting agency that is misleading and rude! They have an A+ rating for the BBB because it can not include their agents. I attempted to post a complaint and was informed I had to proceed through the Federal Labor Department. I paid over $318.00 for the platinum agent package and was told I could make commission off of travel sales and save up to 70% for personal bookings. This was not true you do not receive a discount for personal bookings, you make commission off of your bookings which of course is not up to a 70% discount. I was also told that I could have 2 agents work under me and their incentive was they could receive the up to 70% off agent rate and the primary owner makes the commision. Again, not true because they dont receive a discount and you must pay them the commission. When I received my Agent ID card, it had my picture with someone else's name on it!!! I would stay away from Global Travel!!!! When I called to inquire about the discrepancy, I had the hardest time getting in contact with anyone who was willing to help. Ray was rude and said well thats fine you can cancel when I told him I wanted my questions asked he proceeded to tell me it was fine I didn't agree with them bc they had an A+ rating. Of course after, attempting to file a complaint I discovered its onlt bc agents can't file with the BBB

I've been in the travel industry off and on for about 25 years part-time. I'm no longer working a full-time job outside the home and I have decided to return to the travel industry and work from home. I see there are a fair amount of different host agencies to choose. I've been researching KHM, Oasis, Nexion and UniGlobe. I've been getting many conflicting reviews. I prefer to keep my initial costs down and not pay a monthly fee. But, I also would like to be a reputable host agency who pays commissions on time, offers a great website/tools and training opportunities. I'm willing to pay a higher monthly rate and/or start-up fee, if the agency is reputable. Any feed back will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I signed up for with OutsideAgents.com and Cruises & Tours Unlimited
paid for $39 fee set up, and i wrote to Chad (the owner)to cancel the service right away due to the fact that I was out of the States & wasn’t ready yet so I wrote him to cancel the service. No reply, instead I got the welcome message?!

Then I tried it again but sent to Heather email, no reply..
although i couldn’t even be able to get into the member site!!!!
members.reservationsite.net
said that “this is not a valid account.If you have an existing account and need assistance to recover your password contact customer service”.

4 days later, I was billed $39 for the service I have never been able to use. No communication and very irresponsible company.

In my opinion, I’m so disappointed and I won’t recommend anyone.

Hi, I was browsing through Indeed and saw you was looking for information on a travel agency. I work for a company called Paycation. I would like to share my website for you to visit and learn more about Paycation.

I now work with a Host Agency that actually cares about Agents, not just collecting a monthly fee. I pay nothing, get more support and training than I ever received from KHM, have already had FAM opportunities and work with a group of Travel Profrssionals not a bunch of unqualified hobbyists.

STAY AWAY FROM KHM!

Would you be willing to share the name of the Host Agency you are with, and some of your experience with them?

I am suspicious of KHM's yelp reviews. I see 5 star postings from 3 or more people on the same day within 10 minutes of each other!! Hmmmmm ...... sounds like professional blogging to me!

They rake in money from unqualified people who don't know the first thing about the travel industry giving professional agents a bad name.

As far as the community and "Family" by all means if you enjoy working with other agents who ask questions like: "Is a passport required for travel to (insert euopean country here)?" Then knock yourself out and sign up.

The "training" they offer new agents requires travel to them, which isn't free.

Their promised technology upgrades have been in the works for YEARS.

They require that client documents are sent to them, then deduct the cost to send them to you out of commissions.

I know these comments are super old, but curious why if you don't recommend KHM, you didn't recommend who you're currently using? Also, you talked about "employing a bunch in unqualified, unprofessional "hobbyists", but how else is someone to learn the business if they don't ask questions and aren't given a chance? I haven't seen where hosting agents differentiate on the people they give the opportunity, meaning experienced vs non non-experienced. If that's such an irritant, why don't the "professionals" start their own thing without the agency? I'm not being nasty but truly curious. Your comment didn't encourage or offer help to the underdog, yet gave a newbie like me reason to doubt.

I went on BBB.org and Oasis and OutsideAgents.com have NO RATINGS. Neither does Cruise One & Tours Unlimited. So I would NEVER sign up with these. KHM has an A+ rating and I would rather stick with them. I have thirteen weeks training with a WholeSale company and I can use that as I work with KHM.

Nadine in Plainfield, Indiana said: I found Oasis and OutsideAgents.com on the bbb.org in USA under thier affiliate name (found on the websites outsideagents.com and oasisagent.com "about us page" that had the affilliate name and address)
Outsideagents.com had an A+ bbb rating under the different affiliate name and Oasis had a B+ bbb rating under thier affilited name. Not sure if that means that the actual business name is the same or not.
KHM is under its own name with an A+ bbb rating. I had been looking at them for a while. They also sell a product called Luxevo (savings club?). You get residual income from this one, but it is about $100.00 to start and $49.00 per month. So now I am really confused. I am in a business that I think is awesome but it is a dental / health discount savings plan with complete markedting and training. It costs $50 to 75.00 a month. MLM etc. It seems like you could do well with it and people are. But I hate to shell out more and not do well with it. Although, travel sounds like a top work at home job.

sbrent in San Francisco, California said: I found a host in San Juan Capistrano called Authorized Agents. They pay 80%- so far did not stick me with any fees except for Errors and Omissions at $5 per month. They are part of Signature. What I like is that they don't sell direct - but a little strange on the name since their consumer name is Travelmakers. Been with them 5yrs but retiring this year. Website is AuthorizedAgents.com

I am interested in working with a travel agent that trains also. I want to be able to work with someone with great perks and guaranteed great commissions that does charge an expensive monthly fee. I am new to the industry

Mtravel is the best host agency by far. I have tried many of them across so many years. I've tried Oasis, Avoya, KHM, Uniglobe, Outside Agents and many other smaller ones. Mtravel has the highest commission at 90%, nothing comes close to that. Aside from the great pay, their platform is superb, you can definitely tell that a lot of time and effort was put into it. KHM is horrible by comparison. Anyone sifting through all the available host agencies should definitely check out Mtravel. I'm actually quite shocked that they aren't mentioned once in this thread.

kanaks in Honolulu, Hawaii said: I'm with all of you. Trying to find a trustworthy host. @ceesiren, When did you start with OASIS? Have you gotten any biz from OASIS and have you gotten paid from them? Is the biz that you have gotten from them consistant and have they paid you on time? How is their staff, are they as helpful as they say? Has anyone complained about them? I tried to look them up on the BBB but there is nothing on them that I could find. Did you have to take their training? If so was it worth the $399.00? I'm at the entry level of the travel industry so I'm just trying to gather information before I commit. Thanks any information anyone can give re: OASIS or any other travel host is very much appreciated.

Palm Coast Travel is A+ with BBB.org Oasis Travel A+
