The travel industry continues to grow and lightening speed with more people than ever choosing to discover our beautiful world. It’s an exciting time to be a travel planner as more people than ever are traveling! Of course, Covid-19 has put a damper on travel temporarily, but it will rebound soon as many people missed their vacations this year and can’t wait to get away! From the incredible growth of ocean cruising, to the incredible demand for river cruising to the adventurous spirits who crave off the beaten path destinations, there are no shortage of people out there who want to travel as soon as it’s safe to do so!
This is your chance to own your own business and share your passion for travel. You’ll get to work with a well-established, trusted, travel advisor to start or grow your very own travel business. Spend your days researching new destinations, piecing together unique itineraries and talking about the most amazing travel experiences you’ve had. Share your worldly knowledge with others and inspire them to go experience the world!
Perks include working from home (or away), setting your own hours and vacation time, travel industry discounts, conferences and educational trips … ALL. AROUND. THE WORLD.
Nothing in life is free though! This is a business that you are buying in to, not a job that you are hired for. There are initial, but reasonable start up costs and monthly fees for things such as training, insurance coverage and industry software usage.
Like any business, it takes time to nurture and grow. This is not a fast-cash opportunity, but it is a very exciting and rewarding long-term career choice. The right person will be well-traveled and itching to see more of what the world has to offer. They will have a love for continuous learning, be compassionate, detail oriented, have excellent communication skills and be self-motivated.
Whether you are looking for a new career, you have recently graduated from a travel and tourism program or are currently an office-based travel agent looking for more flexibility without ‘going it alone’, this might be just the opportunity you are looking for!
