As a travel expert you will find work everywhere. Literally, everywhere. Wherever you are or want to go, there are always people who want to go to your destination on leave.

In the travel sector you can still be really creative. With enough buoyancy and perseverance anything is possible. With a diploma from our school, you demonstrate that you have the necessary qualities to start working professionally right away.
The tourism sector is an extremely exciting industry to work in. That is why it is of course very popular with employees. We receive a lot of applications from people who think that because they like to travel, they can immediately start working as a tour guide, hotel manager or travel agent. However, it doesn't work that way. When I see that an applicant has obtained a diploma through Distance Learning or Evening Education, I know that they have the necessary competences and knowledge. - employerSpeaks
Solo Travel: more and more people are choosing to go out alone. Adventure guaranteed! Eco Travel: people are increasingly concerned with the environment and sustainable travel is becoming the new standard. An example of this is going on a trip by train instead of the plane. Local experience: becoming a tourist is a thing of the past, people want an authentic experience. Avoid the tourist hotspots and really immerse yourself in a new culture. Bleisure Travel: this is a fancy English term that means that people combine their business trips with tourism.
As in any sector, one of the greatest drivers of innovation is the ever-improving 'Artificial Intelligence' (AR). 'AI' can process enormous amounts of data and, based on that, make personalized suggestions for travelers. Reviews can also be processed very quickly and, for example, the breakfast menu can be adjusted on the basis of this. Another emerging innovation are the so-called 'Smart Rooms'. Imagine being able to control every aspect of your hotel room with your voice. This is already the case in certain hotels in China, and it is likely to expand around the world soon. For example, guests in Smart Rooms can change the lights, music, curtains and temperature with their voice.
I loved to travel from an early age and I wanted to work with my passion for traveling. That is why I started a tour guide training from the travel offer. In the meantime, I have already completed a number of trips as a Tour Guide and I cannot imagine that I will ever get bored. I now also work as a mobile travel agent in addition to online and the travel office. You can e-mail, call or make an appointment at their (home) office, or he or she just comes to your home. This career offers me a perfect mix of adventure, challenge and social contact. - exStudentSpeaking
