About Travel Agent

October 25th, 2017

Travel agents work in the travel industry. They help customers plan travel itineraries, and they also help them with travel and accommodation arrangements that fit within their budget. Some travel agents deal exclusively with flight and hotel bookings, while others also deal with train and bus bookings. They also help the client with booking a rental car at their destination.
A high school diploma is the minimum educational qualification required to become a travel agent. Taking some classes related to the travel industry will boost your employability. Travel agents must have excellent listening, organizational, sales, communication and customer-service skills. They must also be detail-oriented and adventurous.
In addition to asking you generic questions about why you chose this path and your career goals, most interviewers will also ask you to plan a detailed travel itinerary based on the mock information that they will give you. That is the best way for them to gauge whether or not you have what it takes to perform this job efficiently. To see more questions that interviewers routinely ask prospective travel agents, go to Mock Questions.
