Prior to 1995, the revenue from selling airline tickets was essential to the survival of most travel agencies. Since 1995, very little revenue comes from commission on the sale of airline tickets for most travel agencies. And while it is true that there is little money to be made on domestic U.S. airline tickets, there are great opportunities to make money selling air to your clients who are traveling internationally by working with Air Consolidators.

DougThe fear of Zika is very real for your clients considering a trip to the areas affected by it, primarily the Caribbean, Mexico and Central/South America. I am experiencing this concern first hand as my daughter is considering a destination wedding in 2017.

However, the likelihood of your clients contracting this illness are negligible and there are steps that can be taken to ensure your clients have a Zika free vacation.

DougOn this page two years ago, I wrote about the lip service that is being given to the impact that the Millennial generation will have on the travel industry. At the time, I expressed my confusion about the abrupt switch I had seen from the industry experts and analysts in their projections about the strength of the Baby Boomers to that of the Millenials.

I recently received an article about the Baby Boomer generation from a customer, and thought it was worth sharing with our readers.
