Become a Travel Agent

Travel is an exciting industry. An industry anyone with the right training can learn.

For the person who wants to run their own business and is passionate about travel, but with no previous experience, we have developed the Academy. Your journey starts with a preliminary module, an introduction to travel that you complete at home. You are then ready for your 4-day Residential Course. 

We will take you through the foundations of your business to include, selling travel, holiday searches and destinations; the technology and systems; Travel-pa Administration. Following on from this is a self-study, on-line course supported by a manual and over 70 training videos that you work through at your pace. We have a support team ready to step-in whenever they are needed. Further courses involve 2-days studying ocean and river cruises; 1 day developing your business and marketing plans and a final day to ensure you are confident and ready to run your own travel consultancy.

  • Donna-Gregson-Travel-pa
    "I have been a homeworker in the travel industry for almost 20 years and during that time I have worked for 3 homeworking companies including Travel PA. For me, Travel PA has the best offering by far! It's a family run business where I know everyone by name and I am not just a number. I enjoy the flexibility that Travel PA offers; I am not chased for figures or hours but simply left to run my business as I see fit which for me is a huge bonus. Having said that if I ever need assistance or advice then it's just a phone call away!"
    Donna Gregson
    "Travel-pa is a family run business where you are made to feel part of that family and you are left to run your business in a way that suits you and your lifestyle and commitments, but at the same time we are provided with exceptional support, up to date systems, they are professional and as Travel-pa is part of the Sunset Travel Group we benefit from direct contracts with Hotels and suppliers giving us an edge on our competitors. I have been with Travel-pa for 6 years and would never work for any other Homeworking Company"

  • Jackie-Firth-Travel-pa
    "I have been working at Travel-pa since 2013 and have been in the industry for 34 years. I love working for Travel-pa as the support is fantastic and I am allowed the flexibility to grow my business in a way that works for me. One of the biggest advantages is that we are part of the Tour Operator Sunset Faraway Holidays which enables us to get great rates on hotels and tours and we can tailor holidays around the clients needs."
    Jackie Frith
    " Travel-pa provide you with the tools, software, system access and  knowledge to become a travel agent. The in-house practical training compliments the on-line training modules and you are supported through your transition from a newcomer to being able to plan and deliver travel bookings proficiently and confidently. There is as a great network of agents & always someone you can ask for help if you need it."
    Sarah Doherty
  • Samantha-Fairclough-Travel-pa
    "Joining Travel-Pa is like joining a large family!! I had no previous travel experience except for personal, so started through the Travel pa academy, and I have to say it was brilliant. I learnt everything I needed to, to be able to go off and find the best holidays for my clients. And I love the fact whenever I need help or guidence, it is there from other experienced Travel-pa's. I can't recommend Travel pa enough."
    Samantha Fairclough
    "I did a lot of research into different companies that provided the training that I needed. Travel-pa offered the best value for money and would also allow me to run my business how I wanted to.

    The training provided was very professional and the trainers were very knowledgeable and really friendly. The support I have received has been excellent and I would highly recommend Travel-pa."
