Travel agents need to know about the resorts and cruises that they book clients into, and those resorts and cruise lines often invite agents to come experience the pleasure…for free.
You will be treated like royalty, because the airlines, hotels and resorts know how much influence travel agents have on travel spending.
Many of these familiarization trips will be offered during “low season,” when there are few other guests at the resort. And they may be offered to the top performers at each travel agency, not to everyone.
Working as an agent at a travel agency is a good way how to fly free, and stay free in hotels and resorts also.
