Many travel professionals dream of being self-employed but are so fearful of losing their support network that they fail to take the plunge and turn their dreams into a reality.
But what if you could enjoy a life of professional freedom without losing the sense of community that comes with an established business?
Travel Counsellors never have to choose between being self employed or part of a network of travel professionals. No matter where they are in the world, they have a nurturing community of supporters cheering for them and the success of their business.
The many benefits of being in the Travel Counsellor community
Globally, more travel professionals start their travel business with Travel Counsellors than any other travel homeworking company. The reasons why they thrive with us are plentiful:
- The flexibility of being self-employed and working from home
- Bespoke introductory and ongoing training
- A $10 million annual investment in our industry leading technology
- Uncapped earning potential and no sales targets
- Extensive inventory of best-in-class suppliers and products
While these are important building blocks for success, many find that it’s the ongoing support of warm staff and colleagues that make Travel Counsellors such a unique and inspiring company to be a part of.
Attend industry conferences and events
As part of your warm welcome into the Travel Counsellors global family, there are a range of incredible events, conferences and services that you can attend.
Our annual conference for Australian Travel Counsellors is a celebration of our individual and collective success. A social highlight on the Travel Counsellors calendar, our agents love coming together from all over the country to socialise and share knowledge. For the truly intrepid, our global gathering is a great chance to come together with other Travel Counsellors from across the globe to share stories and celebrate success.
Throughout the year we also hold development events and specialist conferences to help you build knowledge and collaborate with peers.
Whether you’re currently selling holidays as a travel agent, are a corporate travel superstar looking for your next move or a travel expert who’s been out of the game but ready to get back into the exciting world of travel, we've got the right training plan to streamline your path to selling success. We can tailor a plan to suit your needs no matter your background, and will support you 100% of the way.
To facilitate learning on the go, all Travel Counsellors also have access to COACH, our bespoke e-learning platform which they can access 24/7, meaning that no matter your location or lifestyle, you’ll find a way to continuously learn when and where it suits you.
