Work from home as a travel agent

  1. Are you passionate about travel?
  2. If you are looking for a career change and want to improve your work-life balance, working from home as a travel agent could be the perfect solution for you.

Feel supported as a home-based travel agent

We give our home-based travel agents the chance to follow their dreams from the comfort of their own home, office space or wherever they choose to work.

There are no lengthy commutes or time spent in traffic, just a fulfilling day doing what you love.

And whilst there's a perception that homeworking can feel isolating, when you become a travel agent at home with Travel Counsellors it couldn’t be easier to stay connected.

Our community of 1,900 Travel Counsellors in seven countries around the world are connected with each other every day offering instant advice, tips, knowledge and practical support across a variety of social sharing platforms.

You’ll enjoy personal support from your own business coach, as well as the back-office support of over 400 colleagues in our UK support team who all have one shared goal – working for you to help your business thrive.

Show your customers you care

Starting your own travel agency from home lets you cater to clients however you see fit. As a home travel agent, you get to know your customers on a personal level, build trust and loyalty with them, and expand your network - all from the comfort of your own home or workspace.

There are no costly marketing fees to get your home travel business out there. Our in-house marketing team work tirelessly to provide you with simple and intuitive tools that allow you to easily segment your customers and provide tailored content and holiday recommendations.

Our product teams work directly with hoteliers, airlines and destination management companies (DMCs) to ensure you always have the best luxury travel options available for your customers. This allows you to control the margin you make on travel arrangements, instead of being held to third party fares.
