Easy to Work With
Commission Levels
Operational Support


I have been with Outside Agents since 2018. I chose them because they had no startup fee and the monthly was only $21. I also liked that they go down to a 95/5 commission split. Even their starting split is 80/20, which is a lot better than some other hosts. You only need $10K in commissions a year to get to 90/10, which is feasible if you are doing it full time.

They offer a lot of support, so you'll always have someone to ask questions to when you get stuck. They have tremendous buying power, doing somewhere around $1 billion a year in sales amongst all of their independent agents, so you'll benefit by higher commissions and perks. Their alliance with Travel Leaders Network is another big plus.

To be clear, this is not some MLM like some other host agencies. No one ever asks you to recruit new agents or have any kind of goofy "downline". In my opinion, those hosts are scams. OA is for serious independent agents who want to sell travel and build a real business. They'll help you from day one and will be right beside you the whole way. I'm glad I made the choice I did.
