Keep your current job, but volunteer with a travel agency on Saturdays or evenings if you can.  Learn the system and way things work - then when you feel comfortable you will have your management and now travel experience.  Also who knows the agency your volunteer at might hire you as well - possibly sooner than you think.

A lot of tour operators will take on people without travel industry experience, but have other skills which are relevant.

Why not go to evening classes and take an ABTA course. This will help.

You are right, it's not the best paid industry, we do it for the love of travel but in all honesty, it has its perks. Good luck!

Looking for a career change and love to travel, especially Hawaii.  I have tons of business and management experience, just not in the travel industry.  I am aware that it's not really the best paid industry but I'm ready for a change.
