Business Plan Travel Agency

Collection of errors to start it is important to realize that the tourist market is made up of operators and agents. Thus, according to recent data, today officially registered in Russia 3490 tour operator companies and 8,788 travel agencies. First create a tourist product: purchase the hotel rooms, bought by airlines charter flights, arrange ground handling (the meeting at the airport, is transported by the hotel), paving the excursion routes, etc. Howard Schultz may help you with your research. The second – just sell travel packages designed by the operator, then there are the retailers. This explains, perhaps, the first misconception that being a travel agent is very simple: the most-it is nothing to make not necessary, just-implement someone else's product. Opened an office in corridor location, put the phone talkative young lady – and collect his money from numerous clients.

Harsh practice, however, reads as follows: make a man lay savings for a trip of a quality that is very difficult to assess in advance, it is not so simple. By the way, about the money. Misleading the second and most important thing: most of the townsfolk believe that agents selling tours with his own wrap, and its dimensions depend solely on the greed and ambitions of the company. In fact, the agencies live on the operator's commission, which is usually 10%. If we consider that the most popular summer are cheap tours to Turkey for $ 300 per person, and in winter – in Egypt for the same price, it is easy to calculate how much the agency makes on each client.
