Whether you're a pilot, a travel agent, a cruise ship entertainer or a bus driver, the travel industry is an incredibly fun sector to work in and comes with quite a few perks too! Travel and tourism is a massive contributor to the British economy and creates a serious number of jobs here in the UK - Over 8,000 to be precise. Top employers in the UK include Thomas Cook, British Airways, Expedia, Thomson Holidays and, of course, the slightly less glamorous London Underground and Network Rail.
Travel roles are very customer-focused and, if you're in a client facing role, you'll need to be a brilliant people person. You will likely check and make bookings, collect deposits, contact customers when their tickets arrive, and inform them of any changes. You will also be providing a wealth of information regarding destinations and accommodation options and offer advice regarding visas, travel insurance and vaccinations.
