Does travel to places like Fiji, Rome, Italy, Hong Kong, Bora Bora, Paris, London, and Australia sound like something you want to do? Would you like to stroll on secluded beaches, dine in charming little restaurants, or roam around in ancient castles? If so, becoming a travel representative might be an excellent option for you.
However, can you really make decent loan being a travel agent? Is there a future in it?
According to the United States Department of Labor, “Industry debt consolidation and increasing use of the Internet to book travel will result in a decrease in the work of travel agents. The Internet significantly permits individuals to access travel details from their personal computers, enabling them to research and plan their own journeys, make their own bookings and take trip plans, and purchase their own tickets.”
So as the need for travel representatives decreases, so too will their salaries. And incomes of travel agents are already low. The United States Department of Labor, states that the “Median annual profits of travel representatives were $26,630 in 2002. The middle 50 percent made between $20,800 and $33,580. The lowest 10 percent made less than $16,530, while the leading 10 percent made more than $41,660.”.
