Hi,

When I lived in Ecuador I worked for a Canadian travel agency full time for a year and a half travelling all over south america doing research work for them. I've started university now, and I work for them during the holidays.

Hello

forgot to tell about myself:

im working part time at an agency, but most of the time im just helping with the financial organization things and learning a bit by the way how to book with the systems.
i can handle portevo , the amadeus booking system for flights yet, which is quite comfortable if i get flights for me or friends.

any pilots or flight attendants there at TP ???

I have had a six weeks preperation course with a travel agency to work with and for tourists in a holiday resort. Just before I was about to leave I realized it wasn't for me to stay at one hotel for a whole season, so I actually never went and got the work experience. No regrets;)!
Has anybody ever worked in a resort and did I miss out on anything?

i couldnt do that resort thing too. the money is nice but all the people you have to work with in that resort have a completey different idea about travelling than me. you would be working maybe at an all-inc resort in mallorca with loads of drunken germans ( and other nationalities ) that booked package tours.

thats also the thing i dont like about working at the travel agency. Because most of the time you just sell package tours out of a catalog. There are only a few ppl that come and ask to plan an individual trip , like i would do it by myself.

Hi Moritz, exactly that were the reasons why I never worked in the resort and chose to live and work in Ireland instead! Way better choice

hey

as there are some of you involved in travel agency work, i was wondering wether some of you know some good offers available only to us ??

i know there are these, at least in germany called PEP offers, that are special offers only available for us. for example you get free nights at a new opended hotel and a cheap flight.

any of you know more about it or collected experiences already ??
