Congratulations! If you’ve decided to begin your career as a home-based travel agent. You’ve made a great decision. Career Quest Travel Training Center will be with you to help guide and support you as you complete your online travel training.
Now is a time to do more than just study your lessons. Read up on travel news. Subscribe to trade magazines and save articles that you believe will help you be a successful home-based travel agent. Start to think of what your clients’ needs may be. Collect articles on destinations that you think might interest those clients. Consider making some help and planning sheets for your clients. For instance, say you decide to specialize in selling cruises. Make a list of what first-time cruisers should pack or what additional expenses they may encounter on their journey (bar packages, excursions, etc.). Your clients will appreciate the time you took to help them plan and prepare for their vacations.
Perhaps you’ve taken some great vacations of your own that you’d highly recommend to others. Put together an album that can include things such as lists of places to visit, photos or brochures that will attract your clients.
Taking these extra steps to prepare now can help you be a success later.
