Right now may not be the best time to be selling travel due to the most recent travel advisory and considerable confusion — and consumer doubt — about travelling at the moment. But right now could be exactly the right time to make a change!
The pandemic has changed how many businesses operate. Out of necessity, millions of people were forced to work from home. Thankfully, technology has made it possible for many of us to work remotely. This trend started in the travel agency long before the pandemic. Home based travel agents are now a major force in our industry.
If you are still employed by a storefront agency — or if you are on furlough from a storefront agency — perhaps you should be asking yourself “Is today the day I make a change”?
We know there is a lot of pent-up demand for travel out there and sooner or later, it is going to hit travel agents like a tidal wave. Why not take full advantage of that when it comes by becoming an independent, home-based agent?
Canada’s leading host agency The Travel Agent Next Door has seen a lot of agents make the switch to home based during the pandemic. Shouldn’t you give it serious consideration?
