Robyn Knable-Potter, owner and president of Robyn Potter Travel shares,
“I recently used FHxD, originally intrigued by the increased earnings and quick payout. While that's a plus as an agency owner, it was the seamless service by their planning team that most impressed me. Finding inventory for my client in Big Sur was proving challenging, but within 24 hours of my request, their team had my client booked. As travel advisors, we're busier than ever, and as a small team, the FHxD resources are a big help."
