I’m Jake and I’m a travelaholic.
Remember those chats with the careers adviser in high school? I said to mine that I wanted to work in travel and that’s what I’ve been doing since leaving school in 2000. Starting out in leisure travel, I now work for one of the UK’s best TMCs (Travel Management Company) providing business travel services to hundreds of clients.
I work in travel but really, I’m working to travel. We all need the money, right?
As I do actually have to work for a living, my holidays are precious and I try to get away at least twice every year. A large proportion of my salary is spent on travel but I’ve got bills like everyone else; mortgage, car, utilities, food! I’m always asked how I can afford two long haul holidays every year and it occurred to me that people think that travel is expensive – it really doesn’t have to be!
