AARC Host Agency Offers Helpful Advice on How to Become a Travel Agent

Central Islip, New York (July 12, 2013) – Agent Access Resource Center (AARC) Host Agency is offering helpful advice on how to become a travel agent to individuals with a passion for selling travel. Through the information, they aim to highlight the requirements and realities of setting up a travel agency at home.

AARC advises individuals to first assess themselves and gauge their entrepreneurial capabilities. Business owners should be comfortable in managing a wide range of tasks as their business requires. They should not be afraid to take educated risks and spend their money on worthwhile investments. If people have these qualities, they have the potential to succeed in running their own agency and becoming a travel agent.

In starting a travel agency, one should also consider finding a competent host agency. In contrast to a franchise or consortium, these provide lower start-up costs and higher commissions because of the combined buying power of the home-based agents under the host. Moreover, host agencies provide valuable resources such as continuing education and technological support.

To give direction to the marketing efforts of the business, AARC notes that it is critical to provide a specialized service to a niche market. AARC President Paul Davis, for example, caters only to honeymooners and spends most of his time networking within the wedding and events industries to gain exposure. He highly recommends choosing three niche travelers, at most, and staying focused on serving them.

Moreover, it is important to remember that a travel agency, even if home-based, is still a business and should be run professionally. The entrepreneur should show commitment by putting more effort each day to achieve more, learn more, and succeed more. To get through long business hours, their passion will provide the energy and sustenance they need to keep moving forward.

AARC helps aspiring travel agency owners become successful in their business with their free Marketing and Business Tips Series, as well as by providing everything they need to achieve their goals. By showing start-up entrepreneurs how to operate a lucrative home-based travel business, they have enabled hundreds of people to earn extra income as well as enjoy discounted or even free cruises and vacations.

10 Day Fam Trip to Italy for AARC Travel Agents

Food, fashion, art and architecture – you will quickly learn that the root of Italian pathology is an unswerving dedication to living life well.

Toss a coin into Rome's most famous fountain, and you'll return to the city some day; two coins, and you'll fall in love with an Italian (if you haven't already...)

Become a Groupie

Becoming a Useful Groupie

These are great for connecting with peers, finding new industry contacts and meeting new clients or prospects of every kind. Many social networks allow you to join special interest groups as part of their service.

 Joining a group can often be more fruitful than random conversation with strangers too! There are thousands of groups available to join, so your choice is varied.

  I want you to join at least 3 groups that interest you on either Facebook, Pinterest or LinkedIn.

Here's how you do it:


  1. Go to the search box at the top of your Facebook screen and type in keywords related to what you want to search for
  2. A list will appear with some options, click on "see more results" at the bottom
  3. Click on on "Groups" in the left menu (this will sort results to display groups only)
  4. Browse through the groups and look for the ones that say "Open Group"
  5. Find a group you'd like to join and click "Join group"

Once you are officially in a group, the group name will appear on the left side of your Facebook home page under a section called "groups." You can access the group and start chatting with its members from there.


  1. Search for Pinterest group boards in a group board directory like this one.
  2. Start following the board
  3. Ask to join as a collaborator (read the description to find out how they prefer you do this - usually by email or commenting on a pin)
  4. Start pinning and sharing with others


  1. Go to the search box at the top of your LinkedIn home page and select "Groups" from the pull-down menu just before the actual search box
  2. Type in the keywords related to what you want to search for and press enter
  3. From the list of search results that appears, browse through and click on the name of a group that interests you (NOTE: The options on the right of each group may let you click join or view from there. You can also click on the box next to join/view and ask to see similar groups or search within a group.)
  4. If you want to join it, click "Join group" near the top of your group screen

Once you've joined a group, you will start seeing its updates in your home page feed. You can access your new groups by going to "Groups > Your groups" from the top navigation.

If you don't want to search for your own groups on LinkedIn, you can also look for the "Groups you may like" option that appears on the right side of your home page OR under "groups" in the navigation bar.  This will suggest groups to you based on your profile.

This has nothing to do with travel… BUT

As an travel agent I spend a lot of my time in front of my computer. Eating a lot of snackes. As a result I have put on some weight.
I found this 7 minute a day program on line and it has worked for me, I have lost 10 LB in the last two weeks.

What is really cool... is that they will PAY YOU to tell your clients about it.

So try it out, Loose Some Weight and Gain Some Cash.

It has a 100% money back Guarantee.
