EMBARK ON AN EXCITING NEW CAREER PATH

To thank those who have proudly served our country, Nexion Travel Group® and Travel Leaders of Tomorrow have joined forces to create the Veterans in Travel scholarship program. This fulfilling program provides a pathway to entrepreneurship for veterans by training them to become independent travel agents.

THE IDEAL OPPORTUNITY
FOR VETERANS

Today’s travelers are conducting their research online but turning to an expert to assist them when they get serious about planning their trip. As a result, there’s an increasing demand for travel agents to help cut through the clutter and provide unique vacation experiences.

 

This creates the ideal opportunity for veterans or active duty spouses. Often, military families have lived overseas or traveled extensively themselves, providing them with the established networks and skill sets that will make them successful as self-employed travel professionals. Plus, a career as a travel agent offers the flexibility—in both location and hours spent—to start an exciting new business on their own terms.
