Would you like to help people travel to exciting places? Then maybe a career in travel is for you! There are many different types of jobs in travel. Someday you may want to have a job like one of these:
Travel agents plan trips. They arrange airline flights and hotel rooms. Travel agents also arrange transport and sightseeing tours. They tell you when to catch a tour bus or how much the tickets will cost. They find out about fun things to do, places to see, and how to dress for the weather. They also provide maps and tour books to help you plan your trip.
With a computer terminal on one side and a phone on the other, airline reservation receptionists help people without a travel agent to choose the right flights. They help travellers to find flights that cost less or flights with no stops.
At hotels and motels, front-desk receptionists are responsible for collecting and giving out room keys. They also answer the phone and handle phone messages and mail for the guests.
Do you love food? Many fine chefs work in hotels, where they prepare fancy meals. Airline chefs prepare meals that are usually served on long flights.
Sometimes a travel career means working on water! If you enjoy boating, perhaps the job of cruise director is for you. Cruise ships are floating hotels. A cruise director plans fun activities on board the ship as well as on shore. For example, on the ship, people can take dance lessons or exercise classes, play board games, or watch a concert. On shore, people can shop, sight-see, or go to the beach. Chefs on cruise ships prepare delicious feasts for the passengers and get to travel the world at the same time!
Would you love to travel? Then perhaps you would like to be a flight attendant. Flight attendants serve food and drinks and help make people comfortable during a flight. They also help keep passengers safe in an emergency.
With lots of training, you could become an airline pilot. Pilots work out a plane's route and give the flight plan to the air-traffic controllers. They check the cockpit controls to make sure the plane is in good working order. Then they carry passengers safely where they want to go.
