Learn How to Become a Travel Agent
One of the big questions you probably have is, “how do I learn how to be a travel agent?” The first step is investing in your education!
The first step is laying a strong foundation by educating yourself about the travel industry and running a travel business. We pride ourselves on our education programs and courses, both online and in-person. Starting with our Agent Orientation in our Learning Management System and continuing with coaching sessions and in-person events, our program has been designed to help you build your knowledge and truly grow as a trusted, confident travel professional.
It all starts with our Agent Orientation, which includes:
- An overview of the basics of owning and operating a travel agency
- Information on prospecting, qualifying, and researching for your clients
- An introduction to myTravelCRM and how to enter bookings so you’ll receive your commission on time
- Examples of the different travel components and a summary of the suppliers we work with
After that, we have additional courses including an introduction to group travel. And this is just the beginning of your education! In addition to our courses, coaching program, and in-person events, you’ll also gain access to the travel agent resources and educational programs of top travel suppliers and organizations.
One of our agents, Mike, came to us with no background in travel…and by taking advantage of our education and resources, he’s worked up to be in our top-producer Pinnacle program.
One of our favorite ways to educate agents is through our weekly talk show KHM Today. KHM Today is designed to enhance your engagement with industry partners, the community of travel agents, and the KHM Travel Group team. Each week, we have industry guests share their insights. Plus, we chat about the latest headlines, tips from our team, destination updates, and practical advice for ways to engage and market to clients!
That’s why no prior experience in the travel industry is required to get started. The travel industry is complicated and constantly changing, but KHM Travel Group helps you learn how to be a travel agent and continue your education and business development.
