Some people originally join just to cut out the middle man and make great savings. They then go on to become really successful agents. We have seen other cases of people who have been made redundant from their regular jobs that have expanded the business side through necessity, teenagers and graduates who took up the challenge when they could not find employment, housewives and mothers who generate a second income whilst retaining the flexibility to care for their families by working from home, and even retired couples whose endowment mortgage has left them with a short fall who start working in their clubs and social circle to make a great success! The travel business has to be one of the most rewarding and enjoyable vocations you can choose, and the great thing is that you do not need to have any specific qualifications to become a Personal Travel Group Agent. Having an outgoing personality, an interest in travel, and the ability to talk to people are the only skills you need to help you to build a great business. It is not only the business opportunity and the earning potential that attracts people to become a Travel Agent. There are Travel Agents who gather numerous inventories from several travel sites to cut out the middle man and make their clients have great savings on their holidays, and we can’t argue with that! With this method, the Travel Agent benefits from being able to book his family or any person of his choice at net cost, thus saving 100% net of the available commission. There are other Travel agents who do not have the time to manually gather travel inventories on their own since this requires a lot of time and effort. There are online sites such as Personal Travel Group that give full assistance in all bookings, marketing and inventory provision and all business transactions are either made on-line or through the Pro Travel Solutions call centres by their qualified staff. Currently, they are one of the best sites that offer a Travel Agent career program serviced in the UK. Their program allows entrepreneurial individuals a low cost entry into the travel business. In short, they do all of the hard work on the agent’s behalf. From the two methods described above, the best way to achieve your goal as a successful Home-Based Online Travel Agent is to join an online travel program as discussed above. This will free you from the heavy financial burdens of purchasing specialist software, setting up client accounts, having an office presence and many other on-going overheads, leaving your valuable time to be spent on networking and growing your business. Many agents who took this route saw a dramatic increase in their monthly income with less stress and effort, giving them more time to focus more on increasing their sales.
