Hi Rashi

Travel agents do not need a license to operate any more. The Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) has however developed a voluntary accreditation scheme (ATAS).

You would however need to comply with regulations that all other businesses need to in regards to taxes, wages, superannuation, consumer laws and wights, etc.

I think the best way for you to start would be with a business plan i.e. put all that's on your mind on paper and then start from there.

If I can help you in any way, let me know.
