Switzerland Travel Centre.co.uk | London
Suze's insight:

an example of when i worked within a commercial time constraint was when i I worked for Swiss Travel In Grindelwald for a summer season and i would have the itinerary of the client to know when their flight arrived   in zurich and which train they would catch in order to  arrive 3 hrs later in Grindelwald. I would organise their taxi pick up from the station which i would then greet them, escort them to their taxi hand them an information pack and let them know i would meet with them in their hotel later that evening to give more information on the region and sell tickets and sometimes organise group summer hikes through the mountains. At the end of their holiday the clients who flew swiss air also had the option to check in at the train station their baggage for the flight and could enjoy the train journey back baggage free and receive baggage in the uk. A fantastic system which i believe is the only country this service is available.  Also on their arrival flying with british airways or swiss air they can check their luggage from the uk and it will arrive at their hotel 2 hrs after thier arrival. amazing!

A product feature of this hotel is the Spa facilities and massage facilities it something the offer has to offer extra.

A Primer on Travel Insurance: Why and Why Not t... | Access and interpret information SITTTSL202 | Scoop.it

“OdysseyTreks's insight: With more then a million flights cancelled in the US alone this year here is some important information about travel insurance.”

Suze's insight:

according to financial act reform 2011, 766B there are  2 types of advice general and personal advice. Personal being where the client has looked over several options and would like advice on what to choose. General advice would be just informing them of having insurance and what options are out there.  Travel insurance is just as important as bringing your passport. Reading the fine print is a must! You might not be covered for everything you think and have to fork out or won't get your money from insurance companies. Eg you have a ski holiday and have an accident off piste and your insurance covers you on the piste. .

time on two analog clocks: am/pm vs 24 hour - YouTube

This video shows two analog clocks speeding through a day. One is a conventional 12 hour clock, showing the am and pm times, the other shows the 24 hour time...
Suze's insight:

24 hr clock is neccessary in tourism as it creates no confusion when talking about time whether its am or pm. Using it verbally to say your flight is at 13 hundred hrs the client would understand her flight is at 1pm with no confusion.

Social media plays a huge part in the tourism industry. Most businesses now have a Facebook page which you can see reviews for hotel restaurants etc on their page to help make a decision. Also other friends checking into places, so you can see where they are and find out about it. Convenience to find out more about more places etc.
