What to Know Before Becoming a Travel Agent in 2021

Dec 18, 2020 | Travel Business

The sound of sleigh bells is growing distant, and Rudolph’s shiny red nose 🦌 can barely be seen as he leads Santa’s team back into the ❄️ wintry night.  Santa has finished making his annual rounds and all the presents have been delivered, and now he’s off to the North Pole for a well-deserved rest.  🎅 

And what did Santa leave under the 🎄 tree for all the good girls and boys?  

Why, it’s a shiny new travel business!  Just what they always wanted!  🎁

Now, don’t go playing with this new toy just yet, kiddies.  Sure, it’s exciting, but if you rush out to play with your travel business without the proper guidance, you could break it!  (You might even shoot your eye out.  Ouch!)

So hold your horses for just a few minutes so I can tell you what to know before becoming a travel agent in 2021.  

Just watch my latest 📽️ video, “What to Know Before Becoming a Travel Agent in 2021,” for all the info you need.  Once you have been properly instructed, then you can go outside (put your coat on – it’s ☃️ cold out!) and play with your new travel business as soon as the new year begins. 

(And hey, this goes for you veteran travel agents, too.  The year 2021 is going to be a very different kind of year than anyone is used to, and veteran travel agents need to know what they're getting into, too.  So watch the video!) 

There’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to becoming a travel agent in 2021.  The new year will hold challenges, to be sure, but for the well-prepared travel agent, it will surely hold a lot of joy, too.  

And if you’re ready to really step up your game as a travel agent in 2021, then now is the time to join the Careers on Vacation Mastermind!  It’s the ultimate tool for travel professionals and travel agency owners.
