Vancouver, BC, June 3, 2019 – Careers in travel are in high demand. As a CNN article released on May 20, 2019, states:  Travel agents have become trusted advisors, akin to financial advisors, who make the overall travel experience better and get travelers maximum value for their travel dollar.”

Travel Best Bets Academy is a professional travel agent course that is 100% online, self-paced & affordable.  It was created by Claire Newell, an experienced agency owner, who has been on the advisory board of several travel schools & hired travel agents for the past 26 years.  It is designed to be an affordable, self-paced, on-line course that covers everything an in-class course would cover. Plus, there are sections on marketing, customer service & sales skills, which are elements missing from most travel agent courses today.  President, Claire Newell says “there is a lack of travel agents and it is difficult to recruit qualified personnel.  Most courses are extremely expensive and take 6–12 months to complete.  This travel agent course offers people a convenient, affordable option allowing them to start their career in as little as 2 months.”
