When people ask you what you do as a travel agent, how do you respond?  

You probably say something like, “I help people take once-in-a-lifetime vacations” or “I get to talk to people about travel all day,” right?  🏔️ 🛳️ 🚁 🏄   

You answer that way because it can be hard to explain the ins-and-outs of your job in one sentence, and it’s more fun to talk about the fun parts and not the parts that are more, you know, work.  

But let’s put you on the spot.  What DO you do as a travel agent?  What are your main responsibilities?  🤔   

If you’re going to have a successful travel business, you should have a good handle on what you’re responsible for doing.  If you’re not doing enough for your clients, or you’re not doing some of the things that people have come to expect of travel agents, your clients may not be inclined to come back to you.  

Want to know exactly what you’re responsible for doing for your clients, how to avoid common travel agent pitfalls, how to protect yourself, and even how to make your travel business stand out from the crowd?  My new video, “What Are The Main Responsibilities of a Travel Agent?” should be your first stop.  

If you’re ever unclear on what you should be doing to facilitate your clients in taking that dream vacation – or if you want to explain it to someone who’s curious about your glamorous career – refer back to this video.  All the answers are waiting for you!
