Are you active in your community, motivated and service-oriented? Do you love sharing your passion for travelling the world?
A career as a vacation consultant could be the perfect fit for you!
“We’re always looking for good people,” says Pety Carvalho of Expedia Cruises in Langley. “However, with the recent ‘pause period’ when things were closed down, some people moved on, and they’re not sure where to go to get back in. They need a home again.”
Pety points out that some people may come to them with no previous travel industry experience, but says “that’s okay, because we train our vacation consultants not only about the travel industry, but how to build both their database and those important relationships with customers, so they’ll come back again and again.
“Of course, experienced agents who join us love these tools, too – they say it really helps them elevate their business to the next level.”
Benefits of a career as a Expedia Cruises Vacation Consultant:
Independent contractors – You’ll own your own travel business while having the power of the most influential brand in travel behind you, the ongoing support of a local franchisee and a corporate support team of more than 100 people.
Flexibility – While some enjoy the flexibility of planning their work around family life or another career, for example, others are dedicated full-time to growing their business. “The choice is ultimately yours,” Pety says. “The great thing is, you choose your work schedule based on your current lifestyle. You can do full time, part time or something in between.”
Travel perks – Of course, Expedia Vacation Consultants enjoy travel perks that allow them to see the world – and more importantly – share the knowledge they’ve gained from their travels with their customers.
“That’s the cool part about this industry – sharing the vacation knowledge you gain with others!” Pety says.
Since the love of travel is universal, Expedia Vacation Consultants come from a variety of backgrounds, but all are passionate, resourceful, personable and forever curious.
And, as Expedia’s customer base continues to grow, so does the demand for the friendly, personalized service that a vacation consultant can provide.
“You can book online but someone still has to process your booking, and they won’t be local,” Pety says. “When you come in to our office, not only are you getting personal service from a local travel expert, you’re supporting your local community.”
