What do I like about working with MTA – Mobile Travel Agents?

I looked at a lot of remote based travel agency models before joining MTA – Mobile Travel Agents. It just seemed to be the right fit for me, a busy Mum with three kids. I love the independence of working from home but at the same time, having the back up of an amazing support team. I love the networking and camaraderie between MTA – Mobile Travel Agents consultants and their willingness to share experiences and product knowledge. I love the endless opportunities for training and the endless educationals that I wish I had more time to take advantage of! But most of all, I love that this is a family owned and operated business. Roy and Karen sincerely value their staff and consultants. They provide that personal touch and a passion for the industry that is both inspiring and contagious. I feel privileged to be a part of the next exciting phase of MTA - Mobile Travel Agents. Bring it on!

“There is no-one checking your arrival and departure times, no-one you need to ask for time off and heaps of opportunities to travel, work in with the family timetables or just have time to yourself. It is an open ticket to life and my ticket to anywhere. I just wish I had found MTA – Mobile Travel Agents sooner…… Read More
MTA could easily stand for My Ticket to Anywhere! I now feel like I have an open ticket to life.

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.

“I stumbled across MTA - Mobile Travel Agents late one evening after Googling information on working from home. I emailed and immediately had a friendly response from Andrew – the General Manager. I knew within minutes of talking to Andrew over the phone - this was for me! Before long, I was welcomed to the MTA - Mobile Travel Agents group and I have NO regrets. Working from home is fantastic and I'm not going to try to begin to list all the benefits. I'm “at home” for my children and husband which is my # 1 priority. MTA - Mobile Travel Agents has maintained from the beginning - “no pressure” and that is so true! Read More

After working in the Travel Industry my entire career, I found myself living in a town without a Travel Agency. I looked into opening my own Travel Agency, however, with a young family; I knew I could not commit the time needed in running a business. I wanted to be a Mum and wife first. I was also worried about the money involved in setting up an agency – it's a lot of money and something I was not prepared to “gamble”.

Working from home is fantastic and I'm not going to try to begin to list all the benefits. I'm “at home” for my children and husband which is my # 1 priority. MTA - Mobile Travel Agents has maintained from the beginning - “no pressure” and that is so true! You do as much work or as little as you like. With the ever supportive MTA - Mobile Travel Agents Head office and the wonderful support staff, I have created a successful business that works around me!

I found my client base and local community have embraced the concept of their Travel Agent being “mobile”. Clients stop me in the street and the supermarket to ask me about their next trip. I can hang my washing out or stir dinner while I'm on hold to an airline. I can attend my children's school events and still “work”. I got two new bookings and did a Travel Insurance quote while I was attending my kids Athletics carnival! Just the other day I delivered documents to a client, busy at his home workshop with welders and cranes surrounding us, leaning on his ute bonnet explaining his airline tickets. This is what I and so many other consultants love about working with MTA - Mobile Travel Agents. No day is ever the same!!

I'm contributing to my family's income AND doing a job that I love! It is honestly the best decision I have made in a long time. Thank goodness I found MTA - Mobile Travel Agents when I did – just wish I did this earlier! There are a lot of Travel Agents out there, but none would come close to being as wonderful to work with as MTA - Mobile Travel Agents is. It truly is a fabulous family-based company that I am proud to be associated with.

“Well, what I can say except I that after 5 years I couldn’t be happier! I wished I had joined the team the year MTA – Mobile Travel Agents started! I am so happy being part of the MTA – Mobile Travel Agents team that apparently, without my knowledge, MTA – Mobile Travel Agents ends up being contacted by other agency consultants I meet on famil’s or at travel functions wanting to join! Read More

Originally, it was a HUGE decision for me to join MTA - Mobile Travel Agents. I had always affiliated myself (long term) with large companies such as Singapore Airlines, Royal Brunei Airlines and NAB Travel and was paid on a fortnightly basis. To join a locally based family run business and to be paid on a commission basis proved a challenging decision for me to make. However, I was at a stage in my life where I wanted to choose my working hours and holiday dates mainly to fit in with my family’s needs. I also wanted to sell products my clients travel needs required and not the so-called “preferred” products which were not suitable but many agencies make you sell!

The knowledge that MTA - Mobile Travel Agents was affiliated with Travelscene/AMEX and run by a loving caring family made my decision easy in the end. Due to this I decided to join the happy family especially after personally meeting Karen, Roy & all the staff in the head office. MTA – Mobile Travel Agents ticked all the boxes as far as I was concerned.

I also love the fact Karen has such insight 11+ years ago and was aware that there were a lot of very experienced travel personnel out there who had not lost their travel knowledge just because they had “had a baby”! However, these wonderful people did not want to be restricted to working office hours or late night/weekend work due to family commitments. Karen was unlike the large global companies who were afraid of the word “job share” a decade ago. Their input into years of training and being afraid of the new “job share” concept ended up being their loss and MTA – Mobile Travel Agents’ gain! What a great source of knowledge Karen ended up tapping into!

Well, what I can say except I that after 5 years I couldn’t be happier! I wished I had joined the team the year MTA – Mobile Travel Agents started! I am so happy being part of the MTA – Mobile Travel Agents team that apparently, without my knowledge, MTA – Mobile Travel Agents ends up being contacted by other agency consultants I meet on famil’s or at travel functions wanting to join!

I speak sincerely from the heart when asked about MTA - Mobile Travel Agents. The fact that:
1) You can choose your working hours and work around your children’s school activities.
2) Choose your holiday dates.
3) Have professional office back up 24/7 (the girls in the office are gorgeous)!
4) You are provided with constant training via webinars and travel functions.
5) You can send out a question via Ning and instantly receive numerous replies.
6) One has the opportunity to make VERY good money.
7) You receive loyal support from management if the need arises.
8) You are part of a lovely & happy family business and treated like an individual at all times, not just another number.
9) An added bonus one receives is being offered wonderful famil opportunities.
10) Due to all of the above reason………A happy wife = a happy life!

Why would you work anywhere else?

I feel honoured & proud to say where I work when asked. I hand out my business cards & wear my MTA – Mobile Travel Agents shirt with pride! I believe I will be “old bones” when the time comes to part which I hope will be in many, many years away… and I plan to only leave MTA – Mobile Travel Agents due to old age!

“Wow MTA - Mobile Travel Agents is the perfect family and I am very proud to be part of that family. I have been in the industry now for just on 20 years and have worked for many big and small Retail and Corporate agencies and I honestly have never been happier with my career than I am now. As a 44 year old housewife with four children and a very busy life in general I love the fact that MTA - Mobile Travel Agents has allowed me to still do all the things that a stay at home parent has the pleasure of doing and make a dollar at the same time.

I love working for MTA – Mobile Travel Agents because it really does allow us to pursue a true work/life balance. The management allow us to deliver a business model to our clients second to none.

The staff at MTA – Mobile Travel Agents HQ are not only ALL amazingly knowledgeable in their fields, but are passionate about it and it really shows. I have not had one bad experience, and nothing has gone un-resolved. Always quick and with a solution. Another great reason is the amazing alliances we have at MTA – Mobile Travel Agents which really allows us to market ourselves as a great 'Travel Provider' our clients can have real peace of mind and know that we having amazing buying power being part of Travelscene Amex, AFTA, Cruise Council etc, and best of all our relationship with Virtuoso is allowing us to deliver exceptional service and product, unmatched in the industry.
