Many small business owners feel trapped in their business. They discover that owning and running a business is not easy or glamorous. This could be the reason that many fail within the first three years. There is one type of small business though where the opposite is experienced. What is it? A home-based travel agency. Following are following four reasons why owning your own travel agency makes for happy business ownership.

It’s Easy to Find Customers: Customers are the most important asset of any business. And, getting them is a challenge many small businesses face. When you own your own travel agency, the world at large is your customer base. This makes finding customers infinitely easier than in other types of businesses. You can take reservations from local customers, from national customers and from international customers. And, you can do it at any time of the day or night

This is a huge advantage for new business owners for it means that no matter what time of year you open your doors, so to speak, your services will always be sought after.

Make Money All the Time: Travel is not a 9-5 business; it is an around-the-clock business. Customers go online to book travel for family reunions, honeymoons, graduation cruises and more every minute of every day. What does this mean for you? That when you own your own travel agency, you can make money all the time. You can’t say that for a lot of businesses.

Travel Discounts for You: When you start your own travel agency, you receive discounts on your own travel. It’s like your business paying you to do business! You receive huge discounts on airline tickets, luxury hotels, fine restaurants and more. This is, in fact why many started home-based travel agencies. Because they love to travel, they decide, “Why not capitalize on it and make some money at the same time.”

Discounts for Friends and Family: Many aren’t aware that when you own your own travel agency, friends and family are entitled to discounts as well. And, as the travel agency owner, you make money when they book through your site. Yes, you read right. Your friends and family get discounts – and you make money at the same time. It’s a winning situation for all.

When you own your own travel agency, an exciting new world literally opens up to you. Learn more about how to start an exciting career as a home-based travel agency owner at or call Burt Kramer at 1-888-611-1220.
