Travel reservations can be within a variety of travel companies from wholesalers to hotels to cruise companies. Reservation Consultants, or Reservation Agents as they are sometimes called, tend not to be customer facing but will be on the telephone daily to customers booking all of their travel requirements - from initial enquiry through to closing the sale.
