Welcome to the Home Based Travel Agent Six Part mini-course!...
Travel and Tourism is the second largest industry in the world after Agriculture.
Statistics and forecasts in the travel sector are staggering...
These numbers were released in Berlin, Germany last March 10th., 2007 by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).
But the good news don't stop here...
Did you know that Home Based Travel Agents are the most sought after segment in the travel industry?...
They are seen as the most desirable distribution channel by suppliers (tour companies, cruise lines, resorts, etc.).
Internet is without doubt the single-most important factor in the future and growth of the Home Based Travel Agent phenomenon.
Its share increased from 11% in 2001 to 22% in 2007.
Furthermore, with the Internet came the opportunity for niche specialization.
Since the "traditional" way of doing business is no longer sustainable due to a number of reasons (being rising operational costs one of them), suppliers are looking toward the retail travel agent community.
In this context, the figure of the Home Based Travel Agent emerges as the winning option.
In order to give a complete overview of the travel industry and to help you make an informed decision if you decide to become e a Home Based Travel Agent, Unique South America Travel Experience has partnered with reputable writer and publisher Kelly Monaghan and The Intrepid Traveler .
Throughout the six part mini-course you will gain insight and all the important questions answered.
