Best Travel Consultant: Tour + Cruise Specialist jobs in Australia

Travel Agents or Travel Consultant, are especially those who focus on cruises, play a crucial role in helping clients find the best vessels for their needs. Most cruise customers still use travel agencies, which is in contrast to the trend seen in other areas of the travel industry. 

As the cruise market has risen over the past decade, so has the number of specialized cruise agencies, and their advertisements frequently take over the weekend travel sections of national newspapers. These companies specialize in the cruise industry and stay current on all the newest happenings in this dynamic sector.

A cruise consultant is a professional who advises clients on how to plan the most enjoyable cruise vacation possible. Flights, transports, and overnight stays on the boat will all be arranged by them. They could also be in charge of keeping in touch with various outside organizations in order to negotiate more favorable terms.

Helping clients plan and organize trips, with an emphasis on tour packages and cruise holidays, is a key part of your job as a travel consultant who specializes in tours and cruises.

Even better, these experts will likely know about sales and promotions that the general public isn't aware of. There are travel agencies that specialize in putting together cruise-and-hotel packages, or cruise-and-other-experience packages, for clients. It's also important to keep in mind that cruise agencies have no vested interest in any particular cruise line and represent a wide variety of cruise lines, so they can provide you with unbiased advice. 

Key Responsibilities include:

Consultation: Meet with customers (in-person, over the phone, or via email) to determine their travel preferences, budget, and special requirements. Provide recommendations that are tailored to their requirements.

Itinerary Planning: Plan customized tour packages or cruise itineraries in accordance with the client's preferences and budget. Select destinations, accommodations, transportation, activities, and attractions.

Booking and Reservations: Make reservations for flights, hotels, cruises, tours, and other services related to travel. Coordinate with suppliers and vendors to obtain the best prices and ensure that all arrangements are in place.

Pricing and Quoting: Determine the costs of travel packages and provide clients with detailed quotations that include itemized expenses. Describe the inclusions, exclusions, cancellation policies, and any additional charges.

Documentation and Contracts: Prepare and manage all necessary travel documents, including passports, visas, travel insurance, and cruise contracts. Explain terms and conditions to clients and ensure that they are followed.

Customer Service: Assist clients during their travel by addressing any concerns, offering assistance, and resolving any problems that may arise. Provide suggestions for dining, amusement, and local attractions.

Knowledge of the Industry: Remain current on travel trends, destinations, cruise lines, and other pertinent information. Share knowledge with customers to improve their travel experience.

Sales and Marketing: To attract new clients, sales and marketing should promote tour packages and cruise excursions. Develop promotional materials, attend trade fairs, and participate in sales activities in collaboration with marketing teams.
