What has it been like being a travel advisor during this challenging time?
Challenging times is exactly right. I’m sure, like most travel advisors out there, I have worked harder than ever, knowing there will be no immediate compensation. Let’s call it “client maintenance.” I have watched agents that have been in the industry a long time give up. There were (and still are) days when I was ready to pull my hair out, scream out loud or sob my heart out. It’s sad. It’s challenging. It’s devastating. It’s scary. It’s un-motivating.
