Why Should You Become A Travel Agent?
Are you looking for a new career? Not sure what you want to be “when you grow up”? Do you want to make sure you choose the right career? Have you considered becoming a Travel Agent? If not, why not? It’s fun, it’s interesting, you meet lots of great people, you can work from the comfort of your own home!
So, you ask yourself… “Do I have what it takes to be a Travel Agent?”
Qualities of a successful Travel Agent:
If you can say yes to these questions, you’re on the right track…
- Do I like to meet and help new people and build long term relationships?
- Do I enjoy making people happy?
- Do I like to travel?
- Am I dependable?
- Am I passionate about good service?
- Am I authentic and truly interested in people?
- Am I a good communicator?
- Do I enjoy learning?
- Would I like to work from home?
If these characteristics fit you, you’d make an awesome Travel Agent!
So then you ask…
Is now a good time to get into the travel industry?
The answer to that question is “YES”, because:
- In spite of all the online travel sites, the travel agent industry is growing…people don’t look at travel agents just as travel booking agents any more, they consider them as travel consultants…professionals who have a wealth of information about destinations, means of travel, lodging, excursions and so much more.
- Everyone is a potential client…people love to travel, whether it’s a small adventure or an African Safari. And don’t forget about Baby Boomers…they are retiring! They now have the time to travel, and many of them have bucket lists with destinations they want to visit.
- In today’s world there are so many types of travel you can sell, from cruises to family adventures and theme parks to international travel…the sky is the limit!
- With the many options for travel, people need your expertise now more than ever…
- One of the best reasons that now is a great time to become a travel agent is because you can work from home or anywhere when you are traveling. Because of technology, the ability of doing this type of work at home rather than at a brick and mortar storefront is a reality.
