The travel industry is a fun, fast-paced industry which constantly evolves, no two days are the same.
It’s so interesting researching new destinations and itineraries, as well as using your personal experience to bring to life holidays for customers.
You get paid for helping people travel the world.
As well as the uncapped earning potential there are other rewards, such as supplier worldwide familiarisation trips.
You only pay nett rates on your holidays, you can use your commission as a discount.
To be successful in this industry, you must have a passion for travel and for delivering outstanding service levels, as well as a drive to succeed.

Some people say that travel agents are obsolete, this is not the case.
Online booking websites have increased their share in the market at the expense of some high street travel agents, but as a travel agent who works online, you have much more to offer than a faceless booking website.
You will get to know your customers, build rapport, and understand their individual needs. This enables you to offer a personalised quality service and the ability to build bespoke tailored holidays.
Another area you are able to differentiate yourself on, is your after sales service. Your customers only ever deal with you, there not having to call an overseas call centre once their booking is made. You are only ever a local call away.
Basing yourself online and getting involved with your local community means your business won’t suffer the overheads associated with a traditional high street travel agency.
You can enjoy building your business, in your own vision, with a loyal group of customers you’ve built through delivering outstanding personal service, that online booking websites can’t.
