What are our Independent Agents saying about working with Travelink?

“I love being an independent agent with Travelink – they have been totally supportive of me for 18 years and we have grown to be like a family.  Being an independent agent offers me flexibility to make my own decisions and control  my own future.  I can’t imagine working any other way!”

-- Allyson E.

"After 27 years of owning my agency, and spending the last 10 years working alone as a home based agent, I affiliated with Travelink, American Express Travel.  Throughout my travel career I have been passionate about offering my customers the best opportunities in the travel marketplace.  To continue this philosophy I joined with Travelink, American Express Travel in 2011.  The wide variety of excellent quality suppliers and strong air contracts allows me to function at a higher level than working on  my own.  That means, I earn more and have tremendous support. We all like to be associated with the best. I feel I have that through my affiliation with Travelink, a true leader in the industry."  
 
-- Mike Greenwald, President of Personalized Travel and South Florida Chapter of American Society of Travel Agents 
"While I am my clients advocate, Travelink is mine!  The industry knowledge and business acumen of the management team, marketing assistance, including social media, continuing education, timely assistance with issues or questions and not to mention that Travelink is one of the top travel agencies within the American Express Travel network, as well as the company's desire to constantly evolve and be leaders within the travel industry are just a few of the reasons I am a proud affiliate of Travelink, American Express Travel."
