I work as a travel agent and arrange private and public road trips. My workday usually revolves around meeting clients and setting up a plan for them. Communicating with clients can be tiring because people come up with unrealistic demands, for example, planning to visit three different places in the span of five days while they are unaware of the distance and possibility to manage it.

The task that takes up most of my time is scheduling tours. This also includes hotel reservations, departure times, and arrival times for different destinations. It also takes time to calculate expected expenses and then keeping them within the client’s spending limits. People often share less budget than required making the job difficult. Planning out 2 to 3 different schedules and sharing them with the client to choose their preferred one is a highly time-consuming task.


  • Time flexibility and mobility to do your job from anywhere
  • You get a lot of travel opportunities and you learn about new destinations
  • You can make it a side business or work full time, either way, it pays off well


  • Poor job security
  • Highly stressful job because of constant client meetings
  • Maintaining an online presence is important which is quite challenging
