The Exciting Industry OF Travel Is In Desperate Need

Six Reasons To Become A Homebased Travel Agent:

By Frank Lawson

The exciting industry of travel is entering an all-time high. With the holidays quickly approaching this is not the only reason for the high demand for travel. While baby-boomers are retiring every 8 seconds for the next 18 years, investors are investing heavily into the growing industry.

1. BABY-BOOMERS ARE RETIRING AT RAPID SPEED.

Now that the buildings are built and the cars have been designed, Baby-Boomers are retiring at the rate of every 8 seconds for the next 18 years and are seeking refuge on the Cruise ships and Resorts of the world.

2. INDUSTRY EXPECTING A DOUBLE IN ANNUAL REVENUES BY THE END OF THE DECADE.

Many travel based industries are making provisions for the Boom that is in store for the sleeping giant.Airline corporations are currently building larger airports and airliners, while cruise ship corporations are steadily building larger and luxurious cruise ships(visit cruisenewsdaily.com)

3. INDUSTRY NO LONGER CONTROLLED BY TRAVEL AGENCIES.

In the 1990's all of the major airlines cut commissions on airfares, sending the old brick and morder travel agencies out of business, while this had a great impact and has almost made a traditional a travel agency a thing of the past, it has also created a huge gap between the industry and the consumer which has paved the way for the homebased travel agent because of zero to low overhead.

4. INDUSTRY PERKS AND INCENTIVES AS A TRAVEL INDUSTRY PROFESSIONAL.

There are very many homebased travel companies but very few high in quality. The high quality companies will appreciate having you as a valuable asset to them and will roll out the red carpet in incentives such as, travel points that are matched dollar for point paid vacations to exotic destinations around the world, trip reinbursment programs, travel memberships that include the entire family, and pay on a weekly and monthly basis according to sales volume. The industry itself is also waiting to thank you by way of complimentry upgrades on car rentals, hotel rooms, cruise cabins, airline seating arrangements, and more.

5. TRAVEL BOOKING ACCOUNTING FOR ALMOST 50% OF ALL ONLINE PURCHASES.

The big three Expedia, Travelocity, and Cheaptickets are all having a huge impact on how travel is being booked and have made it very simple for the travel consumer.Even with the strong online auction in ebay and the ever so popular amazon.com companies, travel is still one of the most sought after purchases online showing a strong 43% of all online purchases.

6. LOW STARTUP COST AND FREEDOM OF TIME.

To set up a homebased travel business takes very little time and startup capital.Most new aged homebased travel companies can have you in the postion to make money, with your own personal website,marketing and commission tracking system in the same day as getting started.Being homebased allows for the freedom of personal and family time without any worries that the corporate environment provides.

It has been proven many times over that the travel industry can provide the lifestyle and income many are seeking for but also has the demand of discipline of a homebased business owner.

Good Luck,

Interesting post. I want to run my own travel agency and become an entrepreneur someday, so this is very useful. I'm mostly interested in buying a business instead of starting one from scratch, but I haven't had much luck looking for one. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.

Annie -- I would ask around, like maybe your local Chamber of Commerce.

I would also check out this site called BizTrader.com. It's an online global marketplace where you can buy, sell, and invest in small business. There's a wide selection, so I'm sure you'll be able to find that travel agency you want. check it out and good luck!
