Here are some of the things that you should remember before you start your travel agency. Get certified! This is the minimum requirement for most of the independent travel agencies in the country. Each state may have different laws on the travel agents but there's not a law that would ban you from starting one. Before you get certified, you may have to know certain software programs that are used by the travel agency. But check with your local officials as the law will be varied from state to state. Be proficient with software. As a travel agent, you'll be required to be familiar with the travel booking software that you'll be working with. This will be your tool to book the flights, reserve hotels and even change the reservations of your customers. Currently there are four software programs that are used by the airline industry but learning two of them is already sufficient. If you think you can't learn them in time, get someone who knows and learn a thing or two everyday. Slowly, you'll be more confident in handling the system and be able to book the vacation yourself.
