My last role was based from home, so I have had experience of life behind your own desk in your own office.Granted, you need dedication and commitment to ensure you can make the switch between business and pleasure in your workplace, but the rewards can be immense, especially if you're looking for a more flexible career (if you need to work around family, for example).
Of course, there are many other companies out there that offer a similar proposition, so it's critical to research to ensure you choose the right option to start your new career as a homeworking travel agent.
One thing we feel makes us stand out; we make you feel welcome, like family, like you've belonged here all along, rather than a number on a spreadsheet.
