Top host travel agencies merge operations to continue growth and offer new opportunities
Brunswick, Ohio (January 6, 2020) – KHM Travel Group and Ticket to Travel have established a partnership to take both host travel agencies to the next level with new benefits for their independent travel agents. With this new partnership, Ticket to Travel’s 100+ travel agents have become part of KHM Travel Group’s network of independent contractors.
Both companies share a similar mission of championing independent travel agents and sharing knowledge and resources to help them succeed. Led by Rick Zimmerman, KHM Travel Group has grown its team to nearly 80 team members in areas of Support and Education, Compliance, Groups, Commissions, Technology, and Marketing.
Although the business partnership is new, the connection between host agencies and specifically Rick Zimmerman and Ticket to Travel President Anita Pagliasso goes back many years. Both executives serve as advocates for travel agents, working together through their involvement in organizations such as PATH (Professional Association of Travel Hosts), ASTA (American Society of Travel Advisors), and CCTO (California Coalition of Travel Organizations).
“I’ve known Anita for 10 years and admire the values with which she has run her business. Through the years, we’ve frequently discussed the ways we can help each other. Anita and I are both dedicated to the success of our travel agents and are excited to leverage our buying power through this new partnership,” said Rick Zimmerman.
KHM Travel Group and Ticket to Travel have established reputations in the industry as leading host agencies for agents of all levels of experience. Both offer a robust education program, marketing resources, high commission payouts, coaching, and supplier exclusives.
“The reason we came together is because of how important our agents are to us and their happiness and success is number one. Together we’re going to build something amazing for all the agents,” said Anita Pagliasso.
