How to become a travel agent from home

First, you’ll be passionate about travel — as passionate as us. Next, you’ll love the idea of changing careers to improve your work-life balance. If you tick these boxes, working from home as a travel agent could be the perfect solution for you.

What are the benefits of being a homeworking travel agent?

As a home travel agent, you can cater to your customers in a way that works for you. Getting to know them on a personal level builds trust and rapport and expands your network.

Our in-house marketing team works tirelessly to provide the simple and intuitive tools you need to segment your customers and provide tailored content and holiday recommendations.

Then there are our product teams who deal directly with hoteliers, airlines and destination management companies (DMCs) to ensure you always have the best luxury travel options for your customers. That way, you control the margin you make on travel arrangements instead of being held to third-party fares.

How will Travel Counsellors support me?

We empower our travel agents to chase their dreams from the comfort of their own home, or wherever they choose to work. Say goodbye to long commutes and hours sitting in traffic.

Some see home working as lonely, but we make it easy to stay connected. Our global community of 2000 Travel Counsellors share advice, tips, knowledge and practical support every day across a variety of platforms.

You’ll also get personal guidance from your own Relationship Manager, as well as the back-office support of over 400 colleagues in our UK support team who all share a single goal: to help you and your business thrive.
