Qualifications or skills
To become a Sri Holidays Travel Consultant from home you don’t need to have a prior qualification. Although having a degree can be a nice addition, it’s not necessary.
There are some key skills you’ll need to be a successful Sri Holidays Travel Consultant. 99% of people don’t have all these skills at the beginning of their journey and it’s impossible to be an expert across the board.
To get started you’ll need a laptop, an internet connection (and a smile), that’s about it.
On top, we provide ongoing training sessions and a personal travel coach.
See below some of the skills that are part of the travel consultant’s toolbox:
- Organisational skills
- Customer service skills
- Sales skills
- Online marketing/Social Media skills
- Communications skills
- Destination knowledge
- Basic Computer skills
- Empathy and patience
How to make money
Easy. Many people will ask you where you are from and questions about Sri Lanka – use this opportunity to introduce yourself as a Travel Specialist and get contact details. Keep them updated with posts on your Facebook Travel page (we’ll show you how it works) and the occasional email. This works with standard holidays and niche markets like wellness/medical tourism, honeymoon and/or activities. Earn extra income from your first referral onwards! At no cost to you – we will provide you with all the necessary tools and training. No pressure – no minimum sales target!
Traveling is a very personal thing, and the best travel consultants have a sense of empathy for what the customer wants to get out of the trip, whether it’s beautiful memories with their family or an experience of a lifetime or perhaps a deeper understanding of the local culture.
You do NOT need to register a business or engage in any business transactions – the position is purely freelance and referrals only. Your commissions can be paid into a bank account in Sri Lanka or the country of residence.
