Business travel is one of the basic needs of companies who have their work spread across different cities or countries. Most of these companies employ the services of a corporate travel agent to help them meet these needs. Corporate travel agents may work in a private capacity or with a travel agency depending on how they are placed.
Corporate travel agents are expected to confer with their clients and determine their traveling needs. Once they know what a company or an executive is looking for, they provide advice and logistics of travel and accommodation to them.
When a travel agency hires travel agents to manage their corporate clients, it will make sure that the candidate’s resume is reflective of his business travel knowledge and client services.
