Being a Travel Agent is a rewarding and a fulfilling career path. A Travel Agent’s impact spreads far and wide, and the value of personalized service is especially clear during uncertain times like the COVID-19 outbreak.
There are a multitude of reasons why travelers turn to Travel Agents to plan their memorable vacations. As noted in Travel Market Report more and more people are using Travel Agents to plan their vacations due to a “lack of time” and “increased industry offerings.”
With the tsunami of online information now available and the hectic schedules that often dominate our lives, a Travel Agent’s expertise and planning skills are essential when it comes to making travel dreams come true.
