It was with a sense of anticipation entering CruiseWorld this November 2018 as I reminisced that I attended the first staging of this event in April 2010.

I had flew in from Jamaica on a bank loan, searching for a way to grow my then All Inclusive sales business. The turning point of the event was meeting a young, vibrant young fellow from Avoya Travel. He was so engaging that I committed to look further into gaining a host agency to be affiliated with. All that was committed to me sounded too good to be true!

A second meeting in Atlantic City that October at another industry event sealed my decision; I would take the plunge, I would venture into uncharted waters, I would do what no one else that I knew had ever done and so with that decision, I affiliated my then sole trader agency with Avoya Travel....

What a ride I have had, I have moved from wishing for the day when I would successfully sell one cruise to the point where I cannot count the number of sailings that I have successfully offered to clients from all over the globe. I now book and have sailed with my personal affinity groups and I am known as the Cruise Expert in the Island of Jamaica.

There is no support in the industry like the one offered by Avoya Travel. I have been exposed to suppliers that I had never heard of, I have offered product that had it not been for my affiliation with Avoya Travel, I have had no knowledge of. I have sailed brands that I had never dreamed of sailing on, I have been supported extra specially by company executives simply By virtue of being an independent agency in the Avoya Travel Network.

Avoya\'s partnership with American Express has been of extra ordinary benefit to me and it deepens the credibility within the industry and allow me to offer an extra level of Pazzaz to my clients.

With the thrust to run my own agency, I stepped out boldly and launched Sheri-Funtastic Travels and Resorts Ltd and its been an amazing journey. I am happy in my business, my personal team of agents and support staff appreciate the fact that only 8 years ago, I took the plunge and as the song goes, just look at us now!!

So, would I recommend Avoya Travel? Absolutely.
Is Avoya for everyone? I don\'t think so!

We work hard so that our clients can play hard, this is the place to be stretched, to grow, to become the best version of yourself and to develop a business owner mentality...If you know you got the goods, then jump in, you are in for a ride of a life time!
