Jan 20, 2022 | Aspiring travel agents, Launch a travel business, Travel Business

A couple of years ago, travel agents seemed like they had the most chill, relaxing, appealing job in the world to a lot of people.  And a lot of these people – maybe even you – have been just the slightest nudge away from taking the plunge and becoming full-time travel agents themselves. 

But we all know how things have changed with the onset of COVID-19.  Now travel agents have so many more challenges to work through before a trip can even be booked.  ✈️  Quarantines, vaccination cards, attractions closing, worker shortages, changing regulations…  

Travel is so much more complicated right now than it used to be, and there’s no sign that we’ll be getting back to the “good ol’ days” anytime soon.  Travelers, now more than ever, are having to rely on expert travel agents to handle all the tough stuff for them.  

Travel Advisors are in higher demand than ever, but with all the extra headaches currently, is it even worth becoming a travel agent right now?  🤔  

I’ve put together a 📽️ video, “Is It Worth Becoming A Travel Agent In 2022?” to share the pros and cons of jumping into the travel business at this challenging time.  Hopefully it will help you decide whether now is the time to pursue your dream job.  Check it out!   

As a longtime veteran of the travel business, I’ve seen the industry at high points, low points, and everything in between.  I understand how it may be intimidating to jump in right now, but I also know that it can be done, and I’d love to help you if you’re ready.
