Before you go out the door, you turn your back to it, and if the cats are near you ready to bolt by you, stamp your foot on the ground if they start to make a move. Say "stay", open the door behind you very little and ease your way out. If they move, stamp your foot on the floor in front of them and repeat "Stay". If one of your cats is really bold and insistent, gently tap on a paw with your foot if he moves after you say "Stay". They should get the idea, that it's futile to rush the door to try and get out. You'll have to be very consistent to go out the door each time this way until they no longer show interesting in trying to bolt. Good luck! Yes, it's good to have them microchipped. I prefer this type of I.D. to collars and tags.
