How to become a travel agent from home
To become a Travel Counsellor, you'll need to:
- Fund your training
- Commit to it, full-time
- Be eligible to work in the UK
- Understand you'll be a franchisee
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.
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 1,900 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 business coach, 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.
For those of you with an entrepreneurial spirit; passionate about travel, but without professional travel sales experience.
We always have room for experienced sales, account management and business development professionals from the corporate travel sector.
Minimum 3 years travel experience — If you sell holidays to customers in a travel agency or work for a tour operator, find your new home with us.
If you’re an experienced travel industry professional who’s never sold holidays directly to customers, we can help you transfer your expertise to your own travel business.
Spend less time on paperwork and more time building your own travel business as a corporate travel consultant with Travel Counsellors
