There are some habits that all great travel experts have in common, like consistently providing standout service to customers. Here are 5 top tactics that our Travel Counsellors have use to fulfil their travel dreams and earn a great living from it:
A major benefit of being a home-based travel agent is greater flexibility. You have complete control over your career and your life, which in-turn makes it easier for you to offer a flexible service to your customers. Agents who work from home have a greater ability to meet their customer’s needs – elevating their level of service.
Networking is extremely important for a Travel Agents success. It enables you to build relationships and establishes you as a cut above your travel agent peers. At Travel Counsellors, we make it easy to build a supportive network of people who understand you.
3. Jump at Travel
Your customers look to you as their go-to for advice about travel and holiday destinations. That’s why you need to travel to the places you are selling and know them well. Travelling more widely enables you to provide experienced and reliable advice. You will be able to build trust and advise effectively if you are well travelled to the destinations you are selling.
4. Market yourself
Marketing yourself is essential if you want to succeed in any business. Get involved with your local community, take the time to talk to people at social events, and let everyone at the local coffee shop know about your services. Soon word will spread of your local and professional service. The modern traveller expects to connect with their favourite brands on social media – your brand should be included in this mix too.
5. Save time

In addition, our Phenix booking platform automates many aspects of the booking process so you can spend your time doing what you do best – servicing customers.
