Read the Comments from some of our Successful Independent Agents...
I have been associated with Travel Leaders, Thomas Hogan Travel in Myrtle Beach since the early ‘90’s. When I first joined this group I had little knowledge of the Travel business.
With the information provided when you become an “outside agent” you soon learn the rules of business and agency ethics. Now any job is not too big or too small to give the clients the attention that they deserve.
I look forward to many years of the fine service that the employees of Thomas Hogan give to their outside agents. My website at the “outsideagentlink.com”, gives my clients a place to make contact with me in a professional manner that gives them confidence in my ability to give them good service as a travel agent.

I looked at many agencies and companies before I became associated with Thomas Hogan. I chose Thomas Hogan Travel because of their program, the friendliness and assistance I received when inquiring about the agency and the fact that they were affiliated with Travel Leaders.
I have never regretted this decision. Not only do we as agents have the ability to earn as much as we want but we have the tools to work with. Training is always available. I especially appreciate all the assistance that is given to help complete a travel plan for a client, promptness with the commissions, the web site for each of us and the communications. Someone is always willing to help and answer questions. I am impressed with the professionalism and the fact that the suppliers have a great respect for the company.
The women that are working with Thomas Hogan Travel are amazing. I could name everyone in the home office but I will mention a couple. Ann has made it easy for me to work with the suppliers by registering me with the ones I need. When I have forgotten a password she is right there to fix it. Krissi never misses taking care of the commissions and graphing our progress. Ruth was my first contact with Thomas Hogan and I was convinced by her friendliness and how she answered my questions that I knew Thomas Hogan Travel as my host agency would be the right decision. And this has proved many times over to be true.

Outside Agent Link has been my host agency since I started my business just about 10 years ago. Their support and training opportunities have helped me grow my business and become more successful each year. The Support Team is always there when I have questions or need guidance. I would recommend them to anyone interested in getting into the travel business looking for a host agency!

I have been an agent with Thomas Hogan Travel since 2006 and feel so lucky to have found them! They have always been there to answer my questions or help me with problems at any time of the day (after hours too!). The staff is so friendly and helpful—they really care. Most importantly to me, they are completely honest and upfront. There are never any hidden fees. This company is completely reliable. I am absolutely confident that they have my best interest at heart. If you are thinking of becoming an agent, you could not ask for a more dependable, wonderful, honest staff. I plan to remain a loyal agent for many years to come!
Outside Agent Link offers the greatest sales benefits and support one could possibly want as an independent agent. I am thrilled with the program! It has afforded me opportunities that I could not have had access to on my own. The support team is very professional and helpful.
Thank you Outside Agent Link for helping me start my own travel business.
I have always traveled for pleasure and enjoyed all of the planning aspects that were involved. I thought how great it would be to help others plan their dream trips, and get paid for it as well! I had not worked in the travel field and I had the normal anxieties of starting a business, but decided to go ahead with my plan. A friend/agent encouraged me to join OAL. I'm so happy that I followed her advice.
The OAL support team is dedicated to their agents and always available to help with questions or difficult situations. OAL pays well and on time. We are fortunate to be part of Travel Leaders, America's largest travel company. The agents at OAL are a great networking team that are happy to share their knowledge and experience. Last but not least, OAL's working relationship with their vendors is amazing. We have great Reps!
After almost seven years with OAL, I am still happy to be partnered with this great host agency. I couldn't have chosen a better group to be part of.
It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial on behalf of Thomas Hogan Travel/Travel Leaders and the Outside Agent Link program. I have had the great pleasure of working with this incredible crew for over 25 years. I have found in every step of the way them to be professional, supportive, friendly and anxious to have a continuously growing relationship with their vendors and agents. They are eager to grow their business and lend support to those wanting to be successful. I could not ask for a better partnership with the ladies that make up the support team. They have always been courteous, friendly, patient and open to new ideas. Their energy and expertise continuously amaze me. Their professionalism and respect within the travel community is refreshing. I highly recommend them as a “host” agency for someone wanting to get into this incredibly fun and exciting business of travel.

Ten years ago my business partner and I decided we would like to plan travel for golf groups and friends/family as our “retirement business”. We selected Outside Agent Link, a subsidiary of Thomas Hogan Travel in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina as our host agency. We’ve been very happy with our selection and have renewed our relationship with them every year since then. They have always been very accessible, knowledgeable and helpful in helping us learn the business, resolve issues and meet our client’s needs as well as our own. We’ve built up a nice business working with OAL and would recommend them to others wanting to do the same. Don Netzer Al Palmer
