Hi, I was wondering If anyone has a job in travel? What do you do? Do you enjoy it? Im studying travel and tourism, But i can't really decide what I want to do. I was thinking of doing cruising but apparently it's not good pay. I've learnt you get £1 a day and survive on tips! .

I am employed as a pilot and travel all over North America every other week. I really enjoy what I do and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

Travel is really fun. There are a lot of travel-related jobs nowadays - from being a travel agent in an agency or a call center (which i experienced for 5 years), to Hotel staff, to flight and ground operations staff, to restaurants. The jobs may not pay really well, but I am sure you will enjoy. As to the salary, it will really depend on the location. Being a call center agent that handles travel here in the Philippines, I would say it paid a decent amount. Enough to live a good life. Of course, lifestyle will be factored in. Good day!

I am a primary school teacher and I dream of becoming a travel and tourism lecturer at further education college. Another idea for me to live abroad would be teaching English as a foreign language. I did an A level in travel and tourism and some of the others studying that wanted to get jobs as cabin crew, travel agents and tour guides. Good luck finding your ideal job in travel and tourism.

Thank you =] I bet you would be a better teacher than My one haha. They don't help you to do that little bit extra to get a higher grade.
