Everybody gets into the travel agent game with high hopes for all the cool things that come with the territory.  But when you were dreaming of spending your days talking travel and booking beautiful vacation packages for your excited clients… did you ever dream of getting sued?  😟 

It’s a reality that most travel experts don’t advertise in their “Travel Agent 101” courses.  Sometimes, something goes wrong.  Honest mistakes are made.  And if you don’t have the right kind of insurance for your travel agency, you can find yourself in a heap of trouble.  

Imagine if you booked a trip for someone, they spent a big chunk of money to go, and when they arrived, they discovered that they were supposed to take a COVID test, or that proof of vaccination 💉 was required and they hadn’t been vaccinated yet.  If you forgot to inform your client of these details, they could definitely take you to court.  ⚖️  

You have to have the right kind of insurance to protect your business.  If you aren’t protected, you could wind up being liable for everything you are sued for and having to pay out of pocket.  And with that kind of financial hit, your business could 📉 fold in a heartbeat.  

So what kinds of insurance do travel agents need?  Who are some reputable insurance providers?  And if you're working for a host or in a travel agency owned by someone else, are you covered?  🤔  

My new 📽️ video, “What Kind of Insurance Do Travel Agents Need? (Protect Your Business),” answers all these questions and more.  

You may be tempted to skip this video because it’s about boring ol’ insurance, not something fun like, “10 Great Spelunking Locations in Sri Lanka.”  But I implore you to watch the video and make sure your insurance needs are being met for your travel business.  Once you’re protected, then you can get back to spelunking. 

So many travel agents struggle to grow their businesses because they don't have the right tools in their toolbox. 🙁
