So, for a few years I have been toying with the idea of joining a host travel agency and basically having my own travel business. I have been a corporate international agent for 20+ years now and I always have a lot of people ask me for vacations, etc. and I refer them to a friend of mine. I really don't like doing any and all travel people ask for (ok could I be a little pickier?) and I got this idea from a friend who is an independent agent that specializes and only does Disney bookings. That made me think I could be somewhat selective or at least focus on something I love, PETS & DOGS!! I have been doing a ton of research on specializing in travel where people want to take their pets. Not shipping for breeders anything like that, just fun or necessary travel where people don't want to leave their fur-babies behind. I don't want to replace my current job but I would like to do this in addition to it.
I am very much in the beginning planning stages, I need to find a host agency but I know of quite a few that are reputable. The large corporate company I work for has an affiliate program, which I would have loved to be part of BUT you cannot be an employee and an independant contractor for the same company according to the govt. :-(
Does anyone know anyone else that does this? Any ideas? Suggestions? I am open to any thoughts you might have.
