Why Military Families and Veterans Start Travel Businesses
Written by: Sydney M Crago on May 23, 2019
Travel is often a part of the experience for service members and their families. The opportunity to see and live in new places across the country can spark a passion for seeing the world. Personal experience and a passion for travel is key to starting and growing your own travel business. Having that passion for travel is just one reason becoming a travel agent is a great fit for military members, veterans, and their families.
Freedom and Flexibility
Starting your own travel business brings greater freedom and control over your work hours. This makes it possible to own your own business while also attending family events or working around another job’s schedule. This can be especially important for military families who have a member of the family who is deployed or traveling.
Your Business Moves with You
As military families move, they have the opportunity to take their travel business with them. Our agents often build local relationships with their clients, but they can work with any U.S. client, so long as they follow Seller of Travel laws. This can be key for military members, their spouses, or veterans who move as they receive new assignments or change from active to veteran status.
Our Agent Support Team is just a phone call, email, or live chat away for our agents. Whether they have specific supplier questions or questions about working in new places, our Agent Support Team can direct agents and help them find the information they need. And, with agents in every state of the country, the KHM Travel Group’s network of agents is there to support you, wherever life takes you.
With a career in travel, service members, veterans, and their spouses can pursue their passion for serving others through new and exciting paths. Travel agents work closely with clients to craft vacations and help them make memories with the people that matter in their lives.
Each situation presents an opportunity to grow and use your skills. Using teamwork, you can build lasting relationships with clients who want to play a larger part in the planning process. For other clients, your leadership and expert skills as a travel agent bring them a sense of comfort and confidence in the trip you plan for them. For many agents, building these relationships is one of the most rewarding parts of their role.
