Imagine being able to make someone happy every day.
The joy a person expresses when you lock in their flights is an experience that can’t be described.
No Two Days Are the Same
When you work as a travel agent, you can discover parts of the world that you didn't even know existed! One day a family may be booking flights to America for three weeks and the next day a couple may be jetting off to Europe on a one-way ticket! Throughout the process, you can discover, explore and sell new parts of the world, even finding some gems that you'd love to explore yourself.
As a travel agent, your superiors will challenge you, helping you to master new obstacles and achieve daily goals. Keep your head high and work hard and this will result in a rewarding, fast-paced, one-of-a-kind experience!
Being a travel agent isn't like an ordinary sales role. You’re not just meeting your daily numbers; you’re selling experiences, activities and the most unique parts of the world. If you are willing to put in the hard work, you can achieve anything.
You never know what’s going to happen throughout your day, but you’re sure to have fun embracing challenges and discussing great holiday destinations. That’s all part of the beauty of working as a travel agent!
An Eye for Detail
Travel agents do more than just sit in front of a computer all day. They are searching for the best deals possible so clients can enjoy their trip.
Between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5.30 p.m., your day is filled with meetings, flight bookings and endless and interesting phone calls. Sometimes it will seem like a lot of work, but the rewards are truly worth it.
Meetings about performance will push you to go further in your career and grateful messages from holidaymakers will give you the ultimate satisfaction. When you’re enjoying your work that much, it’s easy to enhance your performance and make your clients and colleagues take notice.
Travel agencies are typically social environments, filled with workers who are filled with wanderlust, hard work and a sense of adventure. At the end of a working week, you can look forward to winding down with your colleagues and sharing your own travel stories.
Social drinks and weekly events are just some of the perks of the job. Some agencies are global brands and hold galas in some of the best cities in the world.
