Why It MattersThe Travel Institute’s research has shown that there has been growth in new travel advisors, and that their success is related to quality education. As part of the new campaign, in the first quarter of 2019, advisors can receive significant savings; participate in complimentary webinars; and sign up for free access to the “Hot Tip Tuesday” newsletter. There’s also a members-only webinar series that covers topics such as tax strategies and choosing the best structure for a new agency. (www.thetravelinstitute.com)
Fast Facts- Petras cites a 48 percent year-over-year increase from 2017 to 2018 in registrations for new agent training.
- The organization believes this growth can be attributed to young students looking for a professional career option without a 4-year degree; an increase in working professionals looking for a career change; and stay-at-home parents looking for a home-based, flexible income.
What They Are Saying“Not only does The Travel Institute continue to see more students entering the industry, but we continue to see them striving to be true professionals who deftly navigate today’s complicated and unpredictable travel environment,” said Diane Petras, president of The Travel Institute. “The Travel Institute coursework, whether introductory, specialized or certification-related, offers travel advisors the opportunity to start their own ‘TRIP of a Lifetime’ career, elevating their knowledge and, therefore, the level of service they are able to provide, while setting themselves apart.”
