Some people get into the travel business for the wrong reasons, and that is why their business doesn’t do well. You cannot enter the travel industry thinking you will make a quick buck. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. It takes dedication and hard work! However, if you want to become an agent, and have a passion for travel, and a genuine love for people, it’s the most rewarding home-based business opportunity out there. there is plenty of money to be made. It’s interesting and fun—and it helps people. They don’t call it the hospitality business for nothing. Your job alone is to make people happy, even travel while doing it. Work doesn’t get any better than that.
As a home based travel agent you will provide the same services as in-office agents. You will help your clients research, plan, and book trips and vacations. Home based agents get to set their own schedule and often travel using various discounts. They also get potential tax benefits from operating a home-based business and ultimately save on commuting costs.
Sure. People certainly can book their own travel but whether or not they should is a whole different question. But now, more than ever, in the current climate, travel agents are being sought after because travelers realize how overwhelming it can be; especially when things such as a pandemic occur.
