Advice for setting up an online travel agency.

I want to start a company, I have a small capital and no possibilities of obtaining funding or grants. That is to say, that I depend on myself, my illusion, my desire to progress and the good will of people like you, I can advise. The idea is to mount an online travel agency, in which up to now I can only bring my weak points, since, I don't know the business, I don't know how to begin, or as the first step. And my strengths as I I outlined in the previous paragraph, or passion, eager to engage and make progress. Where do I suggest, you might get to have a good information, and why not, a good training to start this kind of business? I am based in Galicia, nor if it affects the fact of belonging to an online company, for the entry in the records, permits, licenses and other legal requirements. Since already I thank you for all the information I can provide, that I will value very positively without a doubt. Receive my most cordial greetings. `

It is a pleasure to share my knowledge with those who want to. I am well aware of the situation you posit, as I found myself in a similar a couple of years ago. I have my own travel agency, and like you I started with virtually no investment. What happens is that without having experience or solid knowledge about the sector, it seems to me an adventure is very risky. In the first place you should train yourself to know how is this sector, which is the income from the sales made, how is the relationship with the wholesalers of travel, central reservations, service providers,... how is the accounting and the management of a travel agency (there is a plan accounting other than the General Accounting Plan),... What month is simple to do some course of occupational training (question to the Xunta of Galicia). Another option is the career of tourism, much more long, or a Training Cycle of Medium-Grade or senior Management of Travel Agencies. And the last option I propose is the course that is offered by the travel agency franchise: if you are franchising with companies such as Almeida Travel, Falcon Travel, Travel Ecuador, Online Tours,... give you an initial training course on the management of travel agencies. On the other hand, you should see the cost of credit lines necessary insurance, surety bond, related to the activity, permissions, opening, rent, general expenses, titles, and licenses to operate, management programs, systems, airline reservation,... You need to decide if you are going to undertake as a traditional agency or online travel company. The online can ahorrate a lot of money in the beginning, and may be the cost zero euros. In this mode there are many travel agencies (including mine) that give to the travel agents with experience of your user data and password of the service providers, and the agent acts as a commercial or freelance travel agency array, collecting commissions on each sale and giving up some of this to the travel agency which provides the legal backing to be able to operate. In the end, the issue is fairly complex, but I recommend you to think a little in the options that exist and tell me which one would you choose you, and so I show you exactly the steps to take and the approximate costs. Part of my business is the consulting of tourist shops and hostels, but I can give you the guidelines that are within my means. I hope your answer on the decision that you will make.

It seems to Me all good except that you do not have no experience and don't know anything... then..why a travel agency?... A travel agency involves rather more costs than another company, I would imagine that the platform you make your because if you add all the expense that entails... I put the requirements to put a travel agency in Asturias, I don't know the autonomous regulation that you have in Galicia, but more or less will be similar...

Mount a Travel Agency is two-fold: The difficult The easy. The first is a travel agency "normal" with your premises, your offices, your employees (or yourself, without employees), in that fact, as have said all, you have to take permissions of all kinds, and make lots of efforts... It is complicated, but as in almost any type of venture a reality. The easy. Mount a Online Travel Agency. From the internet you don't have to give high on any side. You don't have expenses of premises, rents, salaries,... You have to have other skills, of course (knows how to handle the internet, especially the part of marketing) but it is much more simple than a local agency. If you want more information, I have an upcoming seminar (I am an expert in internet marketing and I love tourism), and there you will receive all the necessary information to make a correct decision. You can revise this site, for more information. [http://emprendeguia.com/agencia-de-viajes-lp/](http://emprendeguia.com/agencia-de-viajes-lp/) This is the agenda and content of the event: \* New models of income and business for online travel agencies \* Digital Marketing strategies focused on acquiring users buy \* Platform technology professional (examples) \* How to connect with the programs of commissions of the large tour operators (tour operators) Well, whatever you decide, I wish you so Much success!
