Mr Luke Scott
Happy Holidays
36 Valley Road

Dear Mr Scott,

Re: Travel Agent (#KB424)

I was recently looking through the job listings section of my local newspaper when I came across your Travel Agent vacancy that has opened at Happy Holidays. I would like to apply for this position as I firmly believe that I am the ideal candidate for this post.

I have previously worked as a voluntary Holiday Representative, where I was responsible for finding and booking holiday packages for customers. That job didn’t just refine my business acumen, but it also made me comfortable with meeting clients, working with numbers and calculating costs, dealing with exchange rates, and planning holidays and weekend getaways.

I am a knowledgeable person when it comes to popular holiday destinations, and I can recommend and provide customers with creative ideas for their holidays. My commitment to my job has meant that I have spent a lot of time researching different travel destinations so that I can always recommend lesser-known and interesting spots to customers ensuring that they can have the best holiday experiences possible. Additionally, I have excellent administrative and organisational skills to process bookings quickly.

Happy Holidays is an established high street travel agent with excellent customer reviews. I know that in this role I can help clients to make memories for life. I have a proven track record of selling package holidays, and my communication and persuasion skills are excellent when highlighting the positives of pre-booked trips, excursions and travel to customers.

I would welcome the opportunity to demonstrate further how I could make a significant contribution to your organisation. I look forward to meeting you and thank you for your time.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Frank Bond.
