What does a Travel Consultant do?

Travel consultants assist clients with the planning and partaking of their travel needs. They research various destinations and means of travel and consider the prices, customs, and weather conditions. Clients share insight including their specifications and wishes, and travel consultants research and suggest appropriate travel packages or services. They organize travel from beginning to end and book tickets, accommodation, secure rental transportation, and arrange for meals when requested. They supply travelers with necessary information and useful travel material, including event programs or maps.

Travel consultants prepare promotional materials to sell itinerary tour packages and all-inclusive adventures. They handle unforeseen problems and complaints and determine eligibility for refunds if necessary. Travel consultants also attend conferences to stay apprised of the latest tourism and travel trends and create an updated electronic record of clients. They maintain relationships with key players in the field and keep financial statements and documents. Travel consultants need a degree in hospitality, travel, tourism, business, or related fields.
