Thank you so much
This unit enables learners to gain understanding of the tour operators industry, the stages involved in creating holidays, brochures and methods of distribution used to sell holidays, and strategic decision making.
Learners will investigate the tour operators industry of the travel and tourism sector, including the different types of operator, their products and services, the scale of the industry and how it has been affected by trends and developments. Management issues will be covered by examining strategic and tactical decision making in order to develop learners’ decision-making skills. Learners will explore the stages involved in creating a holiday and develop skills associated with determining a selling price for a holiday from given information. The role of the brochure will be reviewed against the introduction of new methods of promoting holidays. Learners will also review distribution methods used by tour operators to sell holidays, including the traditional use of travel agencies and the emergence of methods such as the internet and television.
