Good research skills: Now, you will be very good at helping people plan their trips if you are nerd about the place, the beauty, the hidden spots, the story of the people, the geography, travel time, routes, food, etc etc. We are happy to share what we know till now but you should be a NERD about it. So you have to have INTEREST IN PLACES AND CULTURES combined with GOOD RESEARCH SKILLS.
Very good communication skills: After gathering all this destination knowledge, it is vital that you are able to communicate this efficiently so that people actually listen to you. So we are looking for EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION SKILLS. You have no chance surviving this role without that. We can't stress this enough.
Some other things like decently versed with use of Excel/Google Spreadsheets, a bit of tech savvy, outdoorsy nature etc will be an added advantage to excel in this role.
If you read the prerequisites well, the job description is pretty much self explanatory. If we have to point it out, few things that you'll do on a daily basis are:
Make and receive calls from the interested leads who want to travel.
Suggest experiences based on the guest’s preferences and coordinate with stakeholders to make tour itineraries with costing.
Follow Ups and re-edits as and when required.
Coordinating with local vendors like homestay owners, hotel managers, cab drivers, guides etc.
