Travel agents and consultants research, plan and book trips for individuals and groups. You can develop relationships with your customers and those customers will usually keep coming back to you for each and every vacation and trip that they take.
As a Travel agent you can gain experience finding and booking travel at great prices. You will do the research and planning to get the best available deals and specials for any trip that your customer wants to take.
Even though they may be able to book the trip themselves, they probably do not have the connections and know how to find the best offerings and tours at the best rates and which adventures and events are available throughout the year around the world. Plus arranging a full vacation takes a good amount of planning, preparation and research and most people just don’t know how to do this but they don’t have to. That is where you come in.
