Product Manager for tour operators

As a product manager at a tour operator, you are responsible for creating travel offers. This job usually implies constant travelling to foreign destinations to assess the locations. You must inspect, monitor and assess hotel facilities, leisure facilities and the infrastructure so you can create suitable tourism offers for your target group.  

Destination Manager

Destination managers maintain relationships with the administration, municipality and retailers at resorts, as well as the local hotel and restaurant businesses. In doing so, you strive to establish a partnership among all those involved. You organise and market tourist destinations at home and abroad to make them attractive holiday destinations for travellers. At the same time, you take care of incorporating the various interests of everyone involved in the design of a holiday destination.  

Travel sales Manager

Whether for backpackers or cultural tourists, as a travel sales manager, you make your customers’ travel dreams come true. You can plan the right trip for every taste and budget. You are responsible for the entire process of travel sales and are the contact person for your customers. You take care of everything, from the initial discussion to travel planning, budgeting, preparing offers, signing contracts, and organising the return from an unforgettable trip.
