As a travel agent, there might be times when you think your hard work isn’t appreciated. Or you’re dealing with a difficult client who only wants to wring the lowest possible price out of you.

There is a bright side, however: the majority of travelers do recognize how valuable travel agents are, even if they don’t all show it!
