How To Start A Travel Agency
Included in this post, I have chosen articles and resources to give you an overall understanding of starting and running a travel agent, but first, a few points.
If you have a knack for setting up travel deals, dream vacations, and events, then starting your own travel agency may be the right move for you.
In the days before the web, travel agencies were flourishing, but today I see it as a dying industry, because of airlines, hotels, rental car companies, etc. allow you to book online. With sites like Expedia, Priceline, Travaglio, Tripadvisor, and Kayak, which search for the best deals in minutes and that makes the job of a travel agent ineffective.
Travel agencies have been on the decline in the past few years. If you’re just going to book travel, well, anyone can do that online, and it will be difficult for you to make any money and compete in the travel industry.
If you’re still set on opening a travel agency, bring something to the market that doesn’t exist.
Here’s an example of the top of my head.
Setup a vacation package that includes a lot of activities e.g. Vegas. Make sure you cover every detail of the event. The travelers just have to show up and everything else is taking care. If you can get a large group together, you could even include a tour guide that will guide them throughout the entire vacation.
Another example is to set something up for like-minded people, e.g. people over 50, singles, business people, bird watchers, etc. This turns out to be a social event and as well as a vacation. These were just a couple of example how you can survive as a travel agent in a dying industry.
Have a look at the resources I’ve collected that will help you decide if a travel agency is the right business for you to start.
