Planning a trip is a time-consuming and complicated process. Travel agents simplify this process for their customers in addition to providing consultation services and entire travel packages. They may book flights, cruises, rental cars, and hotels, as well as resort stays and events. 

Agents cater to a wide demographic, serving both individuals and corporations. They may also concentrate on a special segment of the field; many agents specialize in leisure travel, business trips, or location-specific journeys to Europe, Africa, or Asia.

Travel Agent Duties

Travel agents who work with a lot of the same hotels, resorts, or other travel destinations sometimes can negotiate deals for their clients.

How is The Work Environment?

The work environment for travel agents can vary depending on the specific nature of their work. Those working for larger agencies or for larger corporations that need to book a lot of travel usually work in a typical office setting. Some independent travel agents might work out of their own homes.
