How to Become a Travel Consultant

There are no formal education requirements to pursue a career as a travel consultant, though many employers prefer candidates with an associate or bachelor’s degree in business administration, hospitality, travel planning, or a related field. On-the-job training is standard, but having customer service experience, preferably in a hospitality setting, increases your marketability. Additional qualifications include an interest in travel, communication skills, and attention to detail. Some travel consultants specialize in a specific area, such as business travel or family vacations.

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.
