How to Select a Travel Agency School
Communication skills are essential to travel agents because they must build a rapport with clients that is based upon trust and knowledge of the industry.
Consider the following when looking for travel agency schools:
- Prospective students who want to learn the basics of travel and tourism but not invest too much time or money may prefer the associate's degree option.
- A bachelor's degree program is designed for prospective students interested in travel and tourism management positions.
- A school that is located in a common tourist destination, such as Florida or California, may offer a wider variety of internships, as well as increased employment opportunities after graduation.
