Holiday Rep Courses
Although not having a qualification or training relating to the role of a holiday rep is mandatory. The tour operators do prefer to recruit people who have a knowledge of the role they are applying for. If you are a school leaver then it may be worth enrolling on a Travel and Tourism course at your local college. Alternatively we recommend the online training course Holiday Rep Diploma. This course is all studied online and can be accessed using your smartphone or tablet.
To enrol on any college courses, you do normally need to be a minimum age of 16. The online Holiday Rep Diploma course you can also enrol from 16.
If you are receiving any job seekers allowance or benefits, you may find that you are eligible for receiving funding for the Holiday Rep Diploma, however this is not the same for everyone and each circumstance is different.
If you do not live in the UK you are able to complete the online Holiday Rep Diploma Course. However, to be recruited by the Tour Operators you will be required to hold an EU passport without travel restrictions. Some Universities maybe able to offer international student places on their Travel and Tourism courses.
