This is absolutely one of the very top questions I get on a regular basis: “What do you have to do to become a travel agent?” 🤔
Since I started my own journey as a travel agent way back in the 90s, the industry has grown and changed and had its 🎢 ups and downs. The processes, the available resources, the required skills, the competition… The environment for becoming a travel agent today looks very different than it did when I first started.
But the one fundamental thing that stays the same in the travel industry no matter what is that a travel agent’s job is to serve clients and ensure that they have the very best travel experience possible. As a beginner travel agent, you have to start somewhere, so it might as well be there. To become a travel agent, you have to make sure you have a ❤️ heart and a 🧠 mind for serving the client and making them happy.
Okay, so that’s what you need to do philosophically to become a travel agent. But what else? Do you have to go to school? Get an apprenticeship? Take a travel equivalent of the Hippocratic Oath? (“First, do no harm… to the client’s vacation by booking them into a timeshare presentation without telling them.”) 😄
In my latest 📽️ video, “What Do You Have To Do To Become A Travel Agent?” I break down what you are required to do to become a travel agent, as well as what you should do. As always, there is a difference.
I hope this video helps you see that becoming a travel agent is within your grasp. There is nothing stopping you from being a part of this exciting and vital profession. And with the right attitude and work ethic, you can be a big success, help lots of people, and have the time of your life doing it.
