Amanda Ficzere, The Travel Agent Next Door

The Travel Agent Next Door asked some of its 300+ travel agents why they decided to become a home-based agent and go into business for themselves.

Agents were also asked why they chose The Travel Agent Next Door and what they would recommend most about The Travel Agent Next Door to other agents.

“I could not have provided this kind of personalized service in an office environment”This column features Amanda Ficzere, The Travel Agent Next Door, L’Orignal, ON.

The top 5 reasons I joined The Travel Agent Next Door:

  • I started my career in a retail agency. It was a constant struggle to adhere to business hours as well as attend to my family’s needs. I was more and more booking my appointments after hours.
  • As a home-based agent I can provide a more personalized experience with my clients, while balancing my home life.
  • Now, I never miss a soccer game or school play.
  • My clients love that I go to them and give them as much time as they need to plan their vacation.
  • I could not have provided this kind of personalized service in an office environment.
