"...This is an excellent program. I'm so glad that I stumbled on to this when researching for task management programs. Very low learning curv, quite flexible, and the price is right. Tried at least 20 other programs, either too complicated, too expensive, or poor documentation..."

Travel Agent's Solution To Do List for Travel Agents


All Travel Checklists

The travel agent represents a travel company or agency and sells tours to clients, including individuals and families as well as businesses. The travel agent helps clients choose appropriate tour that suites their wishes. There are a lot of tasks that the travel agent should complete in order to find clients, conduct interviews and make successful deals. The workflow and daily tasks of the travel agent should be organized with task management software. Usual task list of the travel agent may have the following tasks:

  • Draw up a list of clients for Canaries tour
  • Make phone calls to potential clients from the client list and arrange interviews next Monday
  • Organize new tours and discover new directions
  • Identify wishes of the client Mr. David Robertson during interview on 20th, December
  • Keep records of payments from the clients attracted last week

Task and categories
The tasks of the travel agent should be organized into categories. This is the way to build hierarchical view of the tasks and allocate them by the travel agent’s activity. Task management software allows to display tasks in tree view by using categories and subcategories. By using the software, the agent can break his tasks into such categories as “Tours & Travels”, “Clients”, “Reports”, “Archive”, and more. Each of the categories can be specified by any number of subcategories. For instance, the category “Reports” can be divided into subcategories organized by year, quarters, months or weeks.

Improving workflow by task templates
Task templates or checklists are the way to improve the workflow of the travel agent. Templates may include a list of actions for regular and usual events and processes, such as reporting, meetings, phone calls, interviews and more. By using task management software, the travel agent can create task templates and use checklists every time he or she initiates a usual event. For example, in the Category Bar of the task management software, travel agent can create subcategory “Instructions” which may contain the following checklist:
  • Think over a place and time for meeting with client. Office is the best, but meeting at a cafe is also applicable
  • Prepare booklets, photos and other materials for tours
  • Make phone call to a new client and appoint the interview
  • During the interview find out a client’s wishes and travel preferences which include:
  • Destination (country, city)
    • Single or group travel
    • Period
    • Transportation (air, auto, sea)
  • Hotel, number of rooms, class
  • Select available tours according to the client needs
  • Discuss payments with the client and create new purchase order
  • Get payment receipt confirmation from accountant
  • Take care of necessary traveling documents (Visa, tickets)
  • Accompany a client from arrival to departure
  • Close PO and report to Manager

This checklist can be used as an instruction for just employed travel agents. They can duplicate tasks of the checklist and also create own task templates by using tools of task management software

Avoiding missed events through using reminders

The workday of the travel agent usually is filled with a lot of various events such as appointments, phone calls, meetings, interviews, negotiations and other. In variety of these events the travel agent can miss some of them and forget important actions he should do. The travel agent can use task reminders in task management software to prevent himself from missed appointments, forgotten phone calls, procrastinated tasks and delays. He can set reminder for an event at precise date/time or some weeks/days/hours/minutes before it happens. In task management software reminders can be set for each task whether it is appointment, phone call, or some another action. The travel agent can send task reminder by email to one or several recipients.
