Are you considering starting a career as a Travel Counsellor?
If you love to travel, discover new places and learn about different cultures, this may be the job for you. Travel Counsellors make travel arrangements for individuals, groups and even businesses. Not only do they book flights and accommodations, arrange and manage travel logistics, airport transfers, group arrangements, insurance, special needs and travel documentation, they can also offer travel recommendations to help their clients create unforgettable trips and experiences!
So, what qualities are required to be a great Travel Counsellor?
If you want to get other people excited about their trip, you need to be excited about it yourself! Being able to tell them what is worthwhile to see and do about a destination and conveying passion with your body language and voice will create a better experience for your customers.
From airline tickets, timing flight connections to making arrangements for group tours or keeping track of special needs, there are many details in travel planning. You must need to stay organized and detailed, in order to create a trip worth remembering (for the right reasons, of course).
