While many people book their own travel arrangements online, plenty of people in the UK prefer arranging holidays through bonded travel agents, travel agencies and tour operators. These services make up the travel services industry.

Training opportunities

This apprenticeship is perfect for those with a keen interest in travel but it’s not a paid holiday. Working in this sector requires hard work, excellent customer service skills, and a firm grasp on product knowledge.

Types of apprenticeships

The travel services apprenticeship has three pathways.

  • the leisure business route focuses on customer-facing roles like travel agent or business travel consultant
  • the tour operator (head office) pathway, could see you working for an organisation like Thomas Cook and helping customers make travel plans by checking availability and costs, making bookings and processing payments.
  • the specialist tour operator (field staff) pathway, could see you provide support to customers on their holiday as a resort representative or tour guide

After an apprenticeship, there are opportunities to progress to managerial roles within your organisation. If you work for a larger organisation, you might even get the chance to work further afield as resort staff or cabin crew.

Job roles

  • leisure travel consultant – either in retail agency or call centre
  • business travel consultant – either in retail agency or call centre
  • travel adviser
  • customer service adviser
  • bookings or reservations administrator
  • overseas resort representative

Advanced level apprenticeship

  • senior leisure travel consultant – either in retail agency or call centre

Australia Travel Maps

Arming yourself with maps of various types is a necessity when learning to get around in a new place. International students who come to Australia should have road and transportation maps, as well as maps of the local area. Visitors should also possess a complete map of Australia and its regions. Fortunately, maps are readily available for those who need them.

Types of Maps

A complete map of Australia typically displays the six states and two territories that comprise the country: New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory (ACT), and the Northern Territory.

Transportation maps are handy for newcomers. Australia offers several means of public transportation including bus, rail, air, and ferry. Many of the bus and rail routes coordinate, permitting visitors to easily plan trips and change from rail to bus or bus to rail to get to their destinations. The rail system boasts comfortable, modern long distance and commuter trains. Bus travel is common in Australia. Buses are an economical and practical way to travel through the country. Most metro districts operate efficient bus routes and maps are available both online and at stations. For those who drive, a map of Australia roads and highways is imperative.

Other useful maps include recreation, topographical, and wilderness area maps, beach maps, points of interest maps, local, and historical maps. Back country activities, such as hiking, are extremely popular in parts of Australia and a current map is essential when participating in such pastimes.

Along with the traditional map of Australia, transportation, road, highway, and historical maps are some more unusual maps. For example, the Australian government offers a National Public Toilet map on its web site that lets visitors interactively plan a trip that marks every public toilet along the way. The map can be downloaded to a computer or mobile phone. Perhaps a less useful, but nonetheless interesting, map is the Australia Is Big map that overlays a graphic of various countries over the Australian continent to help viewers visualize just how big Australia is.

The government of Australia provides many online mapping services. You can plan your trip, view public transportation routes and connections, download and print maps in PDF format, or download maps to your mobile phone. Most state and territory web sites offer similar services.

Many online trip planning and mapping services sell printed maps, atlases, and other types of maps. Printed maps can also be found at various Australian locations within a locale.

Public bus and rail system web sites are extremely useful sources of maps. Routes can be planned online and maps printed out according to specific instructions.

International students will find many map resources at their educational institution. A map of Australia is just one type they will find. Local, transportation, historical, points of interest, and many other types of maps will be available to them.

Accurate maps will go far to enhance your stay in Australia. Being lost will probably happen on occasion, until you are familiar with the area, but with good maps and common sense, getting lost will be a minor diversion and not a frustrating experience.
