There are very important reasons why tourism is looking for reliable travel coordinators. One of the main reasons is "international travel safety" has become a major problem.
The travel industry has long provided a way to help Americans travel safer. Again, it is an old old way of traveling. Even rail trains traveling west were not exempt from this method.
Agencies are looking for Travel Dependency; I mean coordinators all the time. I think you wonder why the Travel Agency is looking for travel coordinators? Most people would say it would be a travel agent's job. Poorly! Most travel agents often do not. They are busy booking travel for their clients. Money is losing every time you leave your office or computer. Its travel co-ordinators, who often travel.
Traveler addicts are people who organize their lives for last minute accommodation. Travelers drug addicts usually pay rent or mortgage, however 401K or any savings or investment of any kind are the subject of financial travel at any given moment.
A group travel coordinator would have the following attributes: dedication, love traveling, glad people have confidence in marketing themselves and their destinations, catch the attention to detail, love for coordination and can use common sense, then qualify for free travel  This opportunity works best when you start as a hobby and turn it into a part-time job, then to a full-time job. It is not necessary to think about the wheel again – do what others have done before you. I know a retiree who has been selling exotic Caribbean travel annually. The word was taken by mouth because people really enjoyed themselves and now they do not have to work from 9 to 5 jobs. The Commission pays BIG each year from a reservation of 300 to 500 people per year to a five-star resort on the islands.
I suppose you're wondering how the travel coordinator is just starting to call for FREE? Easily when you book 6 people or 15 people or any number that is found in the entire Travel Dealer; one person goes for free.
Example: Let's say you have 9 people wanting to go to China. At the wholesale price you have 15% profit, plus one free hotel and air if you register 6 people. Your mother and father, your sister and cousin, your girlfriend and her husband want to go and the lady in the church wants to go. And when another lady in church found out from Pastor that Mrs. J was going, she decided to go. (Your husband said that if he wanted to see China, he would go to Chinatown!) So now you have 8 people, 9 yourself. You get one free travel card and you can decide to lower the price per package for the last minute because you do not need an additional 15% surcharge or you can leave it in case of an emergency during the trip or you can use it to market another trip. It's up to you!
