Find A Host Agency Review Site Gets Overhaul

by Kerry Tice

FindaHostTravelAgency.com has responded to the growth of independent travel agencies by overhauling its platform to make it more user-friendly and intuitive to agents’ needs. The host agency review and locator site, which currently features 2,000 reviews from travel agents assessing their current or past host agency affiliations, has upgraded its search capabilities to speed up and streamline the process for users.

Travel advisors can now refine their host agency search by a wide variety of criteria, including but not limited to years in business, average yearly sales volume, number of independent agents, new agent training, education programs, consortia memberships, marketing tools and assets, and more.

In addition to the new user experience for individuals seeking a host, host travel agencies also now have a new portal that allows them to update their profiles in real time. “This new Host Agency Portal will allow host agencies to modify and maximize the information shared on their profile any time they need to, ensuring that travel professionals have the most up-to-date information before making an important decision for their travel business,” said Joanie Ogg, co-founder of the site.
