How to Start a Tour Company?

Do you know that millions of people go on vacation tour each year? People often want to go on a trip tour to enjoy seeing different places and as a way of getting a break from their jobs and responsibilities. The increasing number of people who book a tour is therefore a good reason why it is a better idea to start a travel tour company.

Starting a tour company can be a good endeavor most especially if you have a natural interest in traveling and sight seeing and you have the necessary knowledge on how to start a tour company.

The following are valuable information that you will find helpful if you want to have a successful and profitable adventure tour company:

Make sure that you provide the types of services that your clients will look for in your tour agency. When operating a tour company, it is important that you think of the possible things that your clients will need or will more likely look for when they are looking for travel tour companies. Your clients may be looking for affordable tour packages and there are times when your clients will prefer to have a personalized special tour.

Consider these things when planning the types of services that you will offer in your travel tour company. You will find it a good idea to offer affordable packages to people who avail of your group tour. You may also provide tours packages that can be customized by your clients who may have preferences when going on a guided tour.

Establish good relationship with other companies related to your industry. You may be engaging in the travel tour business industry but it is important that you establish good relationship with other companies that can be related to yours.

You will, for example, find it a good idea to build relationship with a tickets company and tour bus companies so you can be given discounted rates and nice accommodation when you avail of their services for your virtual tour company. You also can increase your contacts with different franchising hotels to give an affordable travel deal along overnight stay at famous hotels to your customers. You have to give something special to sell your package which no one gives in your competitive market so plan your deals well.

Find competent staffs who can handle your corporate tours company. It is also important that you employ competent staffs who can efficiently manage your grand canyon tour company. Look for reliable and friendly tour agents, tour operator and tour guides who will be responsible for the tour services that you offer such as romantic tours, family tour, senior tours and sightseeing services.

To improvise on your sells target try to introduce incentives and referrals to your current and prospect clients. You can give corporate discounts to target behemoth companies. Your tour agency can also attract more people by giving group discounts and student discounts. Your travel tour company might not make handsome profit on these tour packages but don’t forget students and groups help a lot in marketing.

    hi you can either take loan if u want your business to start otherwise u can work with travel company , learn from it, and gain more and more experience and make yourself independent to start your business
  • M said on November 19, 2008
    To answer Q1. Company structure is important regardless of the industry. Look into whether you will set up as LLC or Corp. Best is to consult an accountant. Capital depends on the type of tour company you want to create. Other things to look at are, state regulations on tour companies, many states have regs, many don't. If you sell your tour to people in multiple states, you have to make sure you abide by each state's regs. You will also want to consult with a lawyer who is familiar with seller of travel law. Lastly, it is important to look into liability insurance. Some insurance companies specialize in tour operator insurance, so that should tell you something about its relevance.

    Tips for Lebogang Mokgethi
    I recommend that you immediately put the Merc to work as an airport shuttle service and start converting cash at the soonest.
    1. Arrange permanent parking space at your nearest International Airport and have your vehicle based there. (Convenient for urgent last minute pickups)
    2. Ensure that your reservations desk is manned & equipped to handle bookings 24/7. (telephonic, fax, email, website, sms) U have to be accessible at all times.
    3. Have a "referral commission" factored into your vehicle hire rates and offer this commission to hotels & accommodation establishments, travel agencies, reservations desk clerks, air charter companies, event organisers and so on. This referral commission will ensure that people out there go the extra mile to send you clients.
    4. Advertise, Advertise, Advertise

  • James expert adviser said on June 17, 2009
    @phenyo, This business needs hardly any cash, this is more about managing and personal relation with your tourist. You can arrange everything for tourist and keep your share. You can arrange car, buy tickets, plan their trip, book a hotel in visitor's money so why you need cash for this? You can also start this business from home, all that you need is a computer, internet and a cellphone. I think you need more passion than cash.

    i have read a number of the questions raised and believe Bizhub has answered them very well. i would also like to add that being a start up, one needs to spend time and money on consultants who can draw up a decent business plan - in particular the financial sections. they can answer the bankability point, break even point and more importantly, based on certain capital outlay and running costs, will this business venture be feasible. but be warned, there are many people out there who do business plans. do a thorough background check on them - especially on their financial I.Q. otherwise...this is a great site. would like to get more involved somehow. regards Bryan
