What's it like to be a Travel Agent?
Travel Agents plan, budget and book trips for business clients and tourists. The role of a Travel Agent is to gain an understanding of the preferences of a traveller and to source the best flights, transport, accommodation, tours and entertainment activities to meet those needs.
Travel Agents are also responsible for providing information on currency, visa and vaccination requirements and insurance options.
A Travel Agent may specialise by the type of travel, such as leisure or business, by destination, for example, Europe, Asia or Africa, or by travel product type, such as air, cruise, rail, etc.
