While travel activity may be paused for now, travel desire is at an all-time high. People crave a break from the confines of their current routines more than ever and new research reveals over 70% of leisure travelers plan to spend at the same financial level or greater when travel fully reopens. In addition, for some time, there has been an increased desire by travelers to utilize a travel professional to advise, manage trip details, and assist in mitigating unforeseen travel disruptions given countless travel options and a myriad of safety and security concerns. This all points to opportunity but how do you know if a travel career is right for you specifically?
