There was a time after 9/11 where those with jobs in the travel industry worried about their future; however that time only lasted a few months and now the travel industry is doing better than ever. With increased abilities to make reservations, choose flights and give special instructions over the internet, international travel and vacation getaways are blossoming at an exponential rate.
According to the National Household Travel Survey, 80 percent of people will travel for vacation or leisure/personal travel each year. With that high of a statistic, it’s clear the billion dollar travel industry is booming and finding creative ways to keep people happy with the vacations of their choice. The ability to draw more travelers to top spots and encourage a weeklong visit allows many travel groups able to turn a profit while providing their clients with the getaway of their dreams.
Another key travel statistic is the increase in luxury trips and planned vacations. Once thought only something done by the “super-rich” now many people have been able to access weeklong getaways at a great price and give themselves 5 star luxuries at a fraction of the cost. This market used to be dominated by timeshares; however, with the negative aspects of timeshare ownership (the deposits, restrictions, and all of those added fees) receiving a lot of attention, a new type of luxury marketing has filled the void!
Of late, companies offer a “club membership” allowing vacationers the chance to stay in world renowned resorts for a fraction of the cost. A direct booking would really enable people to have the luxury of an ocean side resort with all the amenities at a price they afford. One such company, Global Resorts Network, not only has deals to stay in 5 star accommodations, but they will also help arrange air transportation, air-port pick up and other things to make the trip planning as easy as a few clicks of the mouse. This innovative travel technique sends hundreds of people every year to exotic locations they only dreamed were possible.
Not only is the travel industry sending more people than ever on the vacation of their dreams, but the people who sell packages and memberships are also seeing the influx in the travel related boom. As more and more people get a taste of luxury and begin traveling farther away from home with the help of companies who make international travel as easy as domestic excursions, the influx of cash into the travel industry will continue to grow.
People are flocking to jobs in the travel industry as a source of a generous income in record numbers. Companies that work on commission are allowing an entirely new set of opportunities to people who love to travel and help others make their holiday dreams or routine getaways happen with ease and fun.
