If you are an individual that wants to make a difference in delivering excellent and thoughtful customer service and care to our guests on their holiday, then this could be the position for you.

You will be responsible for accurate record and log keeping relating to all incidents. The role also involves the processing of specific requirements for guests travelling in our region and making recommendations based on their preferred holiday choice. In addition, during the low season the Guest Support Executive will assist the Guest Documentation team with the guest documentation preparation, production and proofreading for the following summer season.
