Ready to Start YOUR Travel Business?

Big Creek Travel

Headquartered in Atlanta, GA we have travel agents all over the United States

At Big Creek Travel, we believe in providing a solid foundation for those who are new to the industry and supporting those who are ready to transition from agent to entrepreneur.  We are passionate about helping others succeed, and our affiliates have the advantage of learning from a team of experienced mentors and an owner with decades of business experience. Click here to learn more.

Over the years, we have had many people come to us and tell us that they have taken courses on how to become a travel agent or were given resources on where to find training classes or supplier programs.  They thought these tools would be enough to help them become successful, yet they still felt lost and overwhelmed. We know why this doesn’t work, and we’ve created a comprehensive program that goes beyond “travel agent 101”. While knowing how to book a trip or qualify a client is important, if you want to succeed in this industry, you are going to need more comprehensive training – and at Big Creek Travel, we have the tools and expertise to help.

The most successful travel agents share these common characteristics:

  • A passion for travel and either first-hand experience or the willingness to learn
  • Excellent customer service and a desire to help people
  • Professionalism
  • Maintaining the highest standards of integrity
  • The ability to adapt and be resourceful
  • Being able to show empathy

Advantages of a Host Agency

So, you’ve decided you’d like to pursue becoming an independent travel agent.  Congratulations! You are about to embark on an exciting adventure, but when you’re first starting out, trying to become an independent agency owner is a very daunting task. What most people don’t realize is that it’s not as simple is announcing that you’re a travel agent and booking vacations.

Running an independent travel business requires you to have insurance, state, and local business licenses, a federal tax ID, industry accreditations, seller of travel numbers, association memberships, supplier accounts, technology tools, a website, a marketing budget, back-office software, and legal and accounting support – and this is just the tip of the iceberg. When you choose to work with a host agency such as Big Creek Travel, those overhead costs are covered for you through your independent affiliate agreement. Your commission split and low monthly fees save you thousands of dollars annually, and all of the operational details are already figured out for you.  So, all you need to do is focus on what you love about the industry – promoting and selling travel. Most full-time agents start to see steady income by their third year in the industry; however, regular income could come sooner through a solid marketing and networking strategy – something the Big Creek Travel team will help you design and refine.

We would love to speak with you about the advantages of becoming a professional travel agent. Fill out our online interest form, and one of our team members will be in touch with you shortly to schedule time to discuss opportunities via a phone consultation.
