Fancy an insight into the world of a travel agent? There are amazing parts to the job, but find out what NTIA finalist for Best Travel Consultant - Corporate, Sarah Hackett, says is the worst.
WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR YOUR CLIENTS THAT THE INTERNET CAN’T?
I can see things are not really there! Amazing I know, but I can have a feeling about a full flight or a closed off booking class and use all my power to get it cleared, whereas booking online, the computer will just say NO!
WHERE’S THE NEXT ‘HOT’ DESTINATION?
The hottest destination right now seems to be Japan, lots of corporate meetings and conferences and very popular due to the World Cup for corporate incentive groups.
WHAT’S YOUR BEST TRAVEL TIP?
Best travel tip, advise your bank of your travel movements. I arrived in Spain last year with zero funds after my card was skimmed on route in Singapore.
WHAT ARE THE BEST AND WORST PARTS OF YOUR JOB?
Best parts of the job, every day is completely different you never know what the day will bring. Worst parts I think are having a zillion passwords to remember, I would like one sign in for everything!
IF YOU WEREN’T A TRAVEL AGENT, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?
If I wasn’t a Travel Agent I would love to be a professional personal shopper.
