Dear Ms Patience

Re: Lead Retail Travel Consultant (REF 2221)

Please accept this letter and the accompanying resume as application for the above position advertised on

I have over three years experience as a travel consultant in domestic and worldwide travel. My passion for travel started when I took a gap year to travel around Europe and North America and I still enjoy travelling around Australia and overseas. I get great satisfaction from using my love of travel and interest in other cultures to create unforgettable holidays and travel itineraries for my clients. I have extensive experience in Galileo and CrossCheck Travel.

My career in the travel industry began when I was a part-time administration assistant for Perth Travel Centre (PTC), while I was studying for the Certificate III in Tourism (Retail Travel Sales). My skills and enthusiasm for travel were recognised by my colleagues at PTC and, on completion of my studies, I became a domestic travel consultant for the company. I currently work as a retail travel consultant for Fabulous Fremantle Holidays (FFH). I enjoy developing personal itineraries for clients and delivering exceptional service. I use my excellent communication skills to find out exactly what clients want from their travel experiences and then liaise with agents to deliver everything that is required for a hassle-free holiday.

At FFH I am involved in training new staff members and I find this aspect of my job extremely rewarding. I successfully cover for the team leader when necessary and the team responds to me in this role. I work well within a close team and enjoy fostering good working relationships to help a team achieve its goals. I am keen use these skills to move up to the next level and manage a team of consultants.

I have long admired Brilliant Holidays and am particularly impressed by the latest range of small-group itineraries that you have developed. I am very excited about the opportunity to join your team and sell these innovative products to clients.

I look forward to discussing my application with you further at interview.

Yours sincerely
