One Global Team: How We Work Together

Working from home is a big step to take, and choosing the right arrangement is paramount to success. While there are a few different options available to experienced travel agents looking to run their own business, Travel Counsellors offers a truly global experience like no other in the industry. But what does this actually mean?

Backed by a well-resourced global headquarters based in the UK as well as an Australian head office in Melbourne, Travel Counsellors is able to offer more comprehensive support, resources and opportunities for home-based travel agents.

Here are some of the best reasons to join Travel Counsellors:

You may work from home… but you’re never alone

Think working from home means you’ll be isolated, lonely and disconnected from the world? Think again. When you’re a Travel Counsellor, you’re a part of a global network of more than 1,700 travel agents. At any time you can choose to look to other Travel Counsellors around the world for guidance, support, help or advice. Whether tapping into local knowledge or asking for a helping hand in a time of crisis, Travel Counsellors from all over the globe often unite to get the job done.

This video shows the incredible things that can happen when Travel Counsellors from opposite sides of the world work together:

24/7 back up is always available…for when a crisis strikes

Concerned about clients travelling near a natural disaster? Trying to keep up to date with civil unrest on the other side of the world? As an agile global company, Travel Counsellors operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Keeping an eye on global events round-the-clock, the Travel Counsellors Duty Office provides support during times of crisis (because airline collapses, superstorms, earthquakes and strikes happen). This means that as a Travel Counsellor, you can sleep well knowing that if any situations arise overnight, the Travel Counsellors Duty Office will mobilise.

Technology is always on our radar… so we invest in it

It’s incredibly important for Travel Counsellors to stay up-to-date with the latest technology. That’s why Travel Counsellors invests heavily in IT and technology. From building an innovative quote and book system, to using the latest technology to record webinars and create informative programs, Travel Counsellors puts technology at the forefront of what we do.

Building travel dreams is simple… when you’ve got access to a huge range of products

Tired of being locked into selling a narrow range of products? As an influential global company, Travel Counsellors has tremendous buying power. This buying power provides you with access to thousands of travel products across the cruise, rail, air, tour, accommodation and activity sectors. As a Travel Counsellor booking holidays for clients, you’re able to choose from a huge variety of travel products, resulting in happier clients and more job satisfaction knowing you’ve arranged the very best holiday possible for your customers.

Unparalleled levels of support…makes your job easier

Thanks to a 400-strong head office team taking care of marketing, administration, finance and beyond, Travel Counsellors are set up to spend their time doing what they do best: selling travel. With all the back end tasks taken care of, Travel Counsellors are freed up to focus on their core business – meeting with clients, building travel itineraries, following up leads and sourcing new business. With head office taking care of the financials, marketing, payments and more, Travel Counsellors can get on with doing what they’re born to do.
