WATCH: Here’s what it’s like to be a Travel Counsellor

Have you ever thought about quitting your job and working from home? We’ve got the perfect job for you.

In this company, you’ll get a flexible work environment (and the flexible hours to go with it), be able to run your own business and you’ll never have “flightmares” again.

If you hadn’t guessed, it’s Travel Counsellors!

They aren’t like any other travel company, and lead on service rather than price. Oh, and they have a ton of repeat business and an amazing customer satisfaction store.

And if you’re worried about making money whilst working for yourself? Don’t be – 50 per cent of Travel Counsellors earn more than $76K, and the top 12.5 per cent take home more than $160K a year. All with unlimited annual leave.

Basically, it’s perfect if you’re passionate about travel, want great earning potential, and want to run your own business under a proven module – all with the perks and support of a large corporation on your side.

Travel Counsellors are so sure of themselves, they’ve gone out and talked to a bunch of their agents about what makes being a part of Travel Counsellors so great!

We thought this video (posted below) was so damn good, we’ve decided to create a 10 part series – focusing mainly on specific travel counsellors and their day-to-day lives as travel counsellors.

So stay tuned – because we’ll be churning out one of these bad boys a week!

In this first video, discover how great it is to be a Travel Counsellor. Take a sneak peek into the lives of some Travel Counsellors and their families – and how being a Travel Counsellor has changed their lives for the better. Pretty inspirational, right?

During the video, Travel Counsellors say things like “they have given me the confidence to realise that I can do it”, “it gives our family a lot of flexibility” and “I’ve never travelled as much as i do now”. And why wouldn’t you want to work for a company like that?!
