Avoya Launches Travel Advisor Education Platform

Avoya Travel has launched a new travel advisor education platform named “Travel Agent Education Powered by Avoya” in partnership with The Travel Institute. The education platform is designed for entrepreneurs who are new to the travel industry and seeking a comprehensive educational resource that prepares them to successfully own and operate an independent travel business. In addition to a dynamic online curriculum with self-paced coursework, support from travel industry leaders and experts with over 100 years of combined industry experience, and free registration for the Travel Agent Proficiency (TAP) exam offered by The Travel Institute, registrants who complete the coursework and pass the TAP exam will receive free memberships to both Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and the American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA).

According to Avoya, in the wake of the pandemic, entrepreneurs looking for independent contracting opportunities and the ability to earn income remotely set their sights on joining the travel industry and found themselves in need of an educational resource to help learn the ins and outs of the industry. Simultaneously, there was a dramatic increase in the demand for skilled and well-informed travel advisors from travelers looking for help navigating the new, complicated health and safety protocols. Avoya aims to satisfy the needs of both groups with the launch of the new platform.

Available to anyone seeking to start their own independent travel business, or current travel entrepreneurs looking for a more formal education on the travel industry, “Travel Agent Education Powered by Avoya” focuses on the basics of owning and operating a successful travel agency. The curriculum includes an overview of the leisure travel industry, including the various types of vacations and suppliers, and reasons a traveler may be better suited for one over another; geography, destination and cultural education; foundations of entrepreneurship and an emphasis on how to use the technology and marketing resources to streamline and promote an independent business; and a day in the life of a travel advisor, including several aspects of what goes into making a sale.

Avoya plans to add even more content to the curriculum in the near future. Enrollment in “Travel Agent Education Powered by Avoya” is available for $649 through December 31, 2022, a $200 discount off the normal rate, which still includes the CLIA and ASTA memberships upon successful completion. While affiliating with Avoya Travel upon completion is not a requirement, those who choose to do so will receive $100 off their affiliation fee.
