What qualifications do I need to become a travel agent?
I'm currently considering to go for Travel and Tourism Edexcel First Diploma Level 2 and I have GCSE grades E in English and F in Maths. Can you give me advice of what I need to do in order to become a travel agent - I seriously need this job?!

Know your geography (breifly) because you'll have to explain the best places to go in e.g Spain. It's not really a qualification but you need to be clear and announciate properly (so people can understand you). Good socil skills too... That's all I can think of!

Don't think you need any as such, but your Travel and Tourism diploma is good start. Send your CV into all the main tour operators.

You don't NEED specific qualifications, but you havent really got an upper-edge with your GCSE grades. If you apply, they will always find someone who is more suited to the job, so make sure that you know a lot about the company before you are asked to an interview.
