You will always get a very warm welcome to the TC team  

It’s true, when you start with Travel Counsellors you set up your own business and you become your own boss. However, with over 75 Travel Counsellors located around Ireland and over 1,800 Travel Counsellors worldwide, you have more than enough support only a phone call away to help you with any query you may have. From destination advice, to guidance on setting up your home office, there is always someone you can bounce ideas off of or ask for help. You will never feel like you are alone with such a supportive team around you. 


Continued learning, both online and face to face 

In an industry that moves at such a fast pace, Travel Counsellors believes in continued learning and training throughout your career. With everything from business development courses, social media training, and educational trips – Travel Counsellors makes sure you are always at the top of your business game. 


Familiarise yourself with familiarisation trips 

Many Travel Counsellors get the opportunity to go on familiarisation trips to a variety of destinations around the world. Not only do these educational trips give you the chance to  travel for work and engage with other Travel Counsellors, they are also a fantastic way for you to experience the beautiful destinations that you will be selling to your clients. This personal knowledge will help you provide an even better customer service experience to your clients. 


Travel Counsellors celebrates your hard work 

At Travel Counsellors, we believe in the importance of celebrating the hard-work and commitment of our travel professionals, and the annual two-day Travel Counsellors Conference is a time to honour the company’s successes and achievements. Over the course of the two day event, the conference offers fantastic team building activities and networking opportunities, all leading up to the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony. It really is a fantastic weekend to celebrate all that the TC team has achieved. There are lots of other opportunities to celebrate throughout the year as well with our Top TC Events, our Annual Global Conference and our Gold TC Conferences.


Do it your way 

As a Travel Counsellor, you are your own boss which means, you decide the hours you work, how and when you work them. You have the freedom to provide the high level of customer service you have always dreamed of, free from the commute, the targets and the vertical selling. Travel Counsellors focus on building trust and loyalty with our customers by getting to know them personally. This forms strong relationships that last long after the booking, helping you to create satisfied customers for life.
