Ways to Become Travel Agent

There are different roads on how to become a travel agent from home. Choose one from four on the following list:

  • Buy an already existing travel agency. You must check that the existing travel agency is already accredited, so paperwork will no longer give you a headache. Take note that apart from paying the owner of an existing travel agency there are also fees to pay for the transfer of ownership.
  • Buy a travel franchise. Most of the time, the company you make a franchise of will provide you with the online tools, and other support to make your travel agency operational.
  • Partner with a host travel agency. If you wanted to be an independent agent and are just starting out in this field, then you can use a host agency. With them, you will no longer process papers because they already did it for you for a fee.
  • Register your travel agency. When all else fails, you might as well register your agency.
