While technology has made it easy for people to book their own flights, accommodations, rental cars, and tours, there’s still a lot of uncertainty hovering over the travel business. It can be frustrating to deal with last minute cancellations and changes to itineraries, and that’s why consumers are still turning to travel agents for help and support. If you want to start your own travel agency business, now is a good time to do it.
The first step is building your brand and collecting some clients. Consider specializing in a specific type of travel. Maybe you’ll want to focus on cruises or European travel. You could specialize in solo travel or trips for seniors. Establishing yourself as an expert in one niche is a great way to start and grow a travel business. You’ll be the first agent that travelers in that demographic turn to.
