My Travel Business is more profitable, offers more opportunities and is a powerful player in my market.
It is not like the normal home based agent business, online travel agency or a brick and mortar agency.
It's very simple.
I am not an "agent" or "representative" of a trip supplier like cruise lines, tour companies or specialty travel operators. That what traditional travel agents do.
Question: Why do you just want to sell a travel product owned by a large cruise line or a big tour operator?
You do NOT.
So, let's see what you can do to make your own opportunity really profitable.
Let’s make you proud and your bank account fat when you tell your friends, “my travel business” does….
A real opportunity builds a tangible value, or said another way; it builds equity, which has a dollar value that others will pay to you because they want to buy it.
If you work as an agent and earn a small commission for each sale, you have no real company. That is, you can’t sell it to someone else because it has no value.
You, in essence are doing all the hard work to grow someone else’s business.
How fair is this?
Let’s focus on starting a travel business, your business.
What’s the simple KEY to building your company? A travel company that has equity and is worth $$$ to a potential buyer.
You create your own distinct travel product.
This is really simple to do.
Now you are in a position to pay others a commission to sell your brand and keep all the profit for yourself!
When I owned my travel company I put together “spring break” trip packages to Paris, France for high school students.
I actually went to Paris to do the research, but you can do this over the Internet.
I looked for family owned hotels whose staff spoke English. I interviewed them, looked at their meal plan for breakfast and dinner and negotiated a per night rate for two students to a room with a private bath.
Next, I contracted with a local sightseeing service to take my groups on day or partial day trips and provide guided tours.
I even found a “disco” suitable for students and arranged for a group admission.
After coupling these services I had a total price of approximately $973 per student for a 6-night stay.
I had an “International Tours” brochure printed and marketed my travel company tours to high school French teachers in person and over the Internet giving them a free trip plus $25 for each student they took with them to Paris.The minimum number of students was set at 8.
My gross profit was approximately $314 per student. Our retail price for each student was far lower than the big tour companies and we gave personalized service.
We developed a niche and were really good at marketing it. Our website was excellent and ranked on page 1 of the search engines.
The Internet makes the world available to buy your “brand.”
The French teacher, the students and my travel company each had a great deal.
You can pick any travel interest you have anywhere in the world. And, you can do it very successfully!

It is important to realize that a travel company, as
briefly described above, may easily be started from anywhere in the
world to any destination in the world. The administrative fundamentals are the same the world over.
Just ask yourself where have you been or where would like to go and get educated about it.
Next, put together your travel package using local suppliers found at the destination you're planning to travel to.
Identify your market and develop a marketing plan to reach them.
I know from personal experience that branding your own travel package pays off big time. Yes, big time!
You’ll be proud to say, “I own my travel business.”
