Are you currently employed in a travel agency, or an agency owner considering a change of lifestyle? Or perhaps you don't have any travel industry experience but want to get involved in this exciting industry.

Whatever your individual circumstances, if you're seriously looking at starting your own travel business for the first time then you have made a positive step by considering a host agency to help you with what is an exciting and potentially very rewarding career change.

If you're still weighing up the pros and cons of what is a big decision, here's a list of some of the key benefits and challenges of starting and operating your own business.


  • You're in control, directing your business your way
  • Create your own working environment
  • You're the boss
  • You can manage your time better to suit your personal life
  • No one to constrain your success other than yourself
  • Unlimited earning capacity
  • You can operate the business the way you want
  • You gain business knowledge and experience that you can use for the rest of your life
  • You have the freedom to be creative
  • Flexible hours


  • If there's a problem it most often falls to you to fix. It's your business and it's you at the controls
  • Start-up phases take time to complete
  • Cash flow often doesn't keep pace with outgoings in the early stages
  • Usually a substantial investment of time and money is required
  • You must be able to adapt to changing technology quickly
  • At times, there is uncertainty
  • You may feel isolated or alone when you're running the business.


The good news is that by joining a host agency like YTC you receive a wide range of services and support as soon as you start, giving you a decided advantage over those who go it alone, and providing a level of comfort against many of the challenges listed above.

A good quality website and marketing program will be working for you from day one. Proven software and systems are immediately available with training and support at hand. The often overlooked accounting requirements are essentially done for you and if you need advice or feedback you have access to our management team or even other agents who have likely been through what you're experiencing.
