"I had the pleasure of working through Travel Best Bets Academy before it came out. It is safe to say that I learned a ton of valuable information that will help me plan future travel for both myself as well as potential clients. The Academy was easy to navigate and is well written. It kept me engaged and wanting to learn more with every new chapter. Fantastic!!"
"I am so thankful to Travel Best Bets for creating such a detailed and practical course! I have always loved planning trips for myself and others but never knew how to go about making it a career. I loved that I could access everything I needed right from the course website and never had to go looking for anything. Highly recommend for anyone in search of a career change and a side project."
“I knew I needed to change careers and I have always loved planning vacations for myself, family and friends. I never knew anything about becoming a travel agent. Thanks to Claire Newell, I have learned the ins and outs of planning dream vacations - all through the Travel Best Bets Academy. The TBB Academy is easy to understand and goes over important small details, ensuring that you have the necessary information to plan the trip that best suits your client. The greatest perk about this amazing training program is that is is completely online. You can learn it all when you have those pockets of time available, or you can full-on immerse yourself. You choose!”
