Job Description

What You’ll Be doing

As a Destination Consultant in luxury travel sales, you are responsible for the planning, selling and implementation of private-guided tours for our customers.

From the initial conversations to providing expert advice, from collecting quotes to sending confirmations, you will work closely with customers and service providers to create the ultimate travel package for each of your clients. This is not selling pre-packaged tours, but rather a truly consultative endeavour. You will need to craft your approach creatively and you will negotiate, handle objections and identify additional business opportunities. It’s your goal to ensure all clients return home having had a trip which exceeds their expectation.

  • A High Performer
  • A trusted advisor, an account manager, an entrepreneur. You know how to follow a lead, entice a client, close a sale and guarantee satisfaction.
  • A Devoted Team Player
  • Your team matters to you. You enjoy partnering with and supporting each other during work hours, and the conversations will likely continue when the computer is off.
  • A Curious Learner
  • You are excited to keep updated with new product development and thrive on continuing to build intimate knowledge of your region.
