See what other MTA Travel Experts are saying
After more than 10 years going back and forth with the idea, I joined MTA and I have been able to fulfil my dream of being a home based agent. I really wish I made the decision to move earlier, as it has allowed me to work doing what I love, and an equally stable work/life balance."
Operating my own business in partnership with MTA has given me the freedom to be the best Travel Agent I can. I have complete control of my time, focus & energy. This, along with the high level of support & community offered by MTA allows me to consistently grow & develop my skills, knowledge & most excitedly my business. I didn’t anticipate how good it would feel to truly be in control of my working world – I love it!"
“Don’t waste time if you want the freedom of running a business. What you get out of the MTA family you won’t be able to get from other agencies. You gain recognition from MTA management and get amazing support and assistance that gives your start-up entity the legitimacy it needs. I feel a part of a family while I didn't even feel that way when I worked for a physical agency with other staff members."
"I have been lucky enough to have worked as an MTA Travel Advisor for the past 14 years, with my passion for travel there is no better company for me to work alongside to continue to grow my business. MTA has an amazing support network, nothing is ever a problem, the team are always there to help. The lifestyle that comes with MTA is a great work/life balance, you are in control of the hours you work with the added flexibility of working from home. MTA is in a very strong position to negotiate the best deals for us and our clients, I plan on working being with MTA for many more years to come. Thank you, MTA."
"...If you combine the MTA ingredients of the freedom to work your own hours, the ability to do as much or as little as you choose and the opportunity to see your income directly correlated to your work effort, you have the perfect work mix.The MTA – Mobile Travel Agents support team are the icing on the cake – taking care of accounts, finding the best deals and ensuring you get the very latest travel product knowledge. Your family and friends appreciate you being around when they need you. Your clients love the fact you can come to their home, or meet them at their work, or for a coffee at their favourite spot. And if you choose to put in the effort, the incremental earnings come to you."
Maxine and John Adams
“The amazing team in head office are not only the backbone of the network, but they, along with many MTA agents from all over Australia have become my biggest cheer squad! Having the ability to access world class product knowledge, while having 24/7 after hours assistance gives me the confidence I need to assist my clients anytime throughout their booking process. The way I connect with my clients and referrals now is so organic and I absolutely love getting to know them and all their quirks. Also, I’ve found that being able to be so personable allows me to deep-dive into how I can better support my clients vision so we can all share a slice of that sweet travel joy together."
"After 30 years in the travel industry and moving from Sydney to Melbourne, I decided that working for myself was the next step in my career. MTA was the only choice for me as not only is the organisation highly respected in the industry, but MTA have very high standards when it comes to accepting members and suppliers alike – which is very important to me and to my clients. MTA being a Virtuoso member was also a big draw card for me as I needed to still be able to offer the incredible luxury benefits to my clients and that they would continue to have the recognition by hotels and suppliers of this prestigious membership.Right from the start I felt I had made the best decision for me and my clients..."
"What do I like about working with MTA – Mobile Travel Agents? It’s 7am and already I have cleared my inbox while enjoying my morning coffee. After helping my daughter get ready, I drop her to school and then meet a client for coffee and plan their European holiday (earning amazing commission levels negotiated by the best in the business). I enjoy an afternoon with my daughter before calling a client and sorting out the final details for their family’s first overseas holiday to USA.
By the time my husband gets home from work I have tea on, daughter in the bath, and have added about $1,800 to my income for the year..."
“MTA allows me to service my clients at a time that suits us both, including after hours and weekends. My clients feel safe knowing I am an experienced agent, backed by a company that only uses approved financially-viable suppliers. Most importantly, I’m here for my clients when needed – during the planning and research, the holiday itself (if anything unexpected happens), and afterwards – to touch base as I genuinely care about their holiday experiences. The aspect I most enjoy about being an MTA Travel Advisor is that most clients end up becoming great friends."
