Why Work In The Travel Industry
52 Million Holidays Taken from The UK Last Year
With over 50 million potential customers in 2013, a global spend of over $17 trillion, the overseas travel market is the biggest legal industry in the world. It therefore makes sense to start a business in an industry with more customers than any other. Not only that, with so much being spent, it means there are good profits to be made.
Couple this with the fact that over 15% of a person’s income is spent on leisure activities every week; you are entering a franchise which has enormous ‘recession’ proof income.
