Outside sales you'll gain better sales skills, inside sales you will probably be happier hearing fewer prospects say no.

LSL, do you love travelling?Β 

*Ignores answer* Wow, cool. So anyways... Inside sales is for nerds. Outside sales you live to go on vacation and use all the POINTS you get for travelling. Airline status, show up like 3 hours before your flight and get drunk in the lounge. Bring a backpack and pack a few roadies from the self serve area of the lounge.Β  (but don't drink them on the plane) for your hotel room.

You see more airport check-ins and hotels by the airport than any of your friends. It's bad food too.Β 

BUT

You get to go on vacation for FREE with points. Upgrade to fancy maldives resorts FREE with points - and if you're in there long enough, you might start to enjoy it.

This is true. And usually outside sales everything is paid for. Inside sales always have very strict budgets. The spifs and incentives are usually way better too.
