Learning How to Sell Travel from Home
Being able to learn how to become a travel agent home means having access to education anywhere, at any time. That’s what our online learning programs are designed to bring agents, whether they are brand new or have years of industry experience.
Our New Agent courses are the first step in learning how to sell travel. They are designed to provide you with the practical knowledge you need to understand how to book travel and run your business.
Online New Agent Courses
You’ll begin your travel agent education by logging into MyTravelAgentPortal and clicking on the Learning Management tab. There you’ll be taken through a series of online courses that guide you through various aspects of launching and running your travel business. These courses include new agent orientation, travel agent compliance, booking basics, myTravelCRM, and an introduction to marketing.
The best part: you can complete each module at your own pace, when it is convenient for you. The courses can take anywhere from 10 to 20 hours on average, but it’s really up to you. Everyone learns differently and has other commitments, so you can take as long as you need to complete them. Once you complete the New Agent Courses, you’ll also gain access to our Agent-Only Facebook Group!
KHM Travel Group doesn’t issue travel agent ID cards because these cards are not recognized by travel suppliers and they are not necessary to sell travel as a travel agent. We can work with you to help you earn your IATAN and CLIA cards, which are the only true recognized ID cards in the industry, although they are not necessary when you work with a host travel agency.
We offer a full schedule of weekly webinars with our suppliers and the KHM Travel Group team to help you continue to expand your travel and business knowledge. Our webinar calendar is easily accessible through MyTravelAgentPortal and all webinars are recorded, so you can also watch or re-watch them at any point in time.
KHM Travel Group has developed a program for our agents who may need additional assistance in building and marketing their travel agency. With our Coaching Program, you can schedule a one-on-one phone call with one of our experienced team members. They will share with you their personal experiences of what works…and what doesn’t. They will work with you, put together your own personal plan for success, help you determine goals, and review which travel agent marketing options will work best.
