View Full Version : becoming a travel agent ????

I have always thought about doing this. Rather it be working from a home or working at an agency. Can this be a decent full time job or is this something people do to supplement their income. I don't care about making tons of money I think it would be a awesome fun job. Do you earn strictly commision? How hard is it to find a job fresh out of agent school? I am 30 and have been in a hospital/office setting for 10 years and think a change would be great!! Only thing I would be missing would be my cheap health insurance but I'm sure I could take out my own policy!! Anyway.... any advice from fellow travel agents??

I'm not a travel agent, and don't know too much about it, but have wondered if being a travel agent has become less of an important job with the growth of the internet. I know I book all my travel online myself.
