    Independent Agencies In the Avoya Travel Network Thrive Specializing In Products They Love

    Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. – July 18, 2017 – Avoya Travel®, the travel industry’s most innovative brand, is empowering Independent Agencies in the Avoya Travel Network™ to earn above average incomes by supporting specialization and encouraging business owners to sell the travel products they love. The company’s unique combination of innovative marketing and patented Live Leads™ program with industry-best Avoya Network support resources and exclusive education is helping Independent Agencies connect with customers and provide superior expertise and value.

    “At Avoya Travel we encourage specialization because it enables travel professionals to make greater sales, and allows them to hone their expertise, work more efficiently, and ultimately offer customers better service and insider knowledge that isn’t always available through ‘generalist’ travel agents,” said Brad Anderson, President of Avoya Travel. “Avoya Travel is proud to support Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network in selling what they love by offering resources and programs, such as Live Leads and professional education, in as many or few unique specialties they choose.”

    Within the Avoya Network, some Independent Agencies opt to focus on just a couple of niche specialties to grow sales. Here are the stories of two prosperous ‘Super Specialists’ that sell their favorite products with confidence and offer consumers true insider knowledge:

    Dina Dini, owner of Dina Dini Travel LLC, runs a successful business by specializing in rail travel. Bored in retirement after a 20-year executive career in the airline industry, she opened Dina Dini Travel LLC in 2015 as a new Independent Agency in the Avoya Network and chose to focus on one specialty, Amtrak Vacations.

    “With Avoya Travel, I have the opportunity to learn whatever I want, but focusing on one specialty was a great way to get started in travel,” said Dini. “Rail travel is a very niche product and with Avoya Travel’s variety of resources I feel supported in building a business selling what I love.”

    Dini learned the Amtrak Vacation product inside and out and has also taken Amtrak vacations to gather first-hand experience to share with customers. She credits Avoya’s exclusive Live Leads and Mastermind Program™ for helping her to build a strong independent business and to have the confidence to provide the best experience and value to her rail travel clients.

    “By opting into Avoya Live Leads, I have never had to worry about getting a new customer because there are enough new leads offered exclusively to my business to keep me busy selling Amtrak Vacations,” Dini shares. “In addition, Avoya Travel’s Mastermind Program has been invaluable because the quality business coaching and development resources I receive as part of my membership in the Avoya Network help me reach my goals and would otherwise cost a lot of money.”

    Abbey Mopsick, owner of Abbey's World Travel LLC, has been in the travel business for 20 years and has sold a lot of products as the industry has evolved. She opened her Independent Agency and affiliated with the Avoya Network in 2012, and last year achieved nearly $2 million in sales with just three product specialties: CIE Tours, Globus family of brands, and Uniworld Boutique River Cruises.

    “My sales success is a result of focusing on a select number of products and really getting to know them inside and out so that I can easily tell customers about all the cruises, tours, and itineraries from first-hand experiences,” said Mopsick. “Through Avoya Travel’s optional Mastermind Program, I was able to get professional advice on the benefits of narrowing down my specialties, as well as connect with other success-minded travel professionals, and learn new ideas and techniques. Avoya Travel’s Live Leads and the comradery of the support staff have enabled me to reach the sales goals I set for my independent business.”

    Avoya offers modern, success-minded travel professionals several advantages, ranging from the company’s unrivaled support, technology, and resources, including its patented Live Leads program that successfully matches specialty-based Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network with vacation-seeking clients. In addition, Avoya offers other optional professional development, including exclusive vendor education and the Avoya Mastermind Program. The Mastermind Program provides Avoya Network members access to small group learning and virtual one-on-ones, best practices on business systems, vendor specialization, and more.
