The travel industry is a $7 trillion dollar industry! As a travel writer, you have an advantage in the industry because you love to travel and write about it. You may as well earn FREE travel! Consider working for an online travel company that is also a “host agency” for home-based travel agents. Most companies will offer one of three types of positions: travel consultant, booking travel agents, or travel reservation specialists. Either way, you can earn good money and FREE travel. The bonus is that you will be a knowledgeable travel representative for all of those people you speak with daily.
