If you work in travel PR, there are a lot of rewards. Plus we’ve found an injection of culture helps to shape our character! There are a number of traits that come with the job which are now a fully ingrained part of us. Here’s what you can expect…
You’ll Get The Travel Bug
You won’t be stuck for exciting new places to spend your summer holidays, Christmas break, long weekends, Wednesday evenings…
You’ll Become A Foodie
You’ll become familiar with foods you’d never even heard of, let alone tried. Suddenly, you’ll be partial to a Bordelaise sauce on your venison and order vegetables you have no idea how to pronounce but that taste delicious.
You Eat On The Run
Team desk-picnics are a frequent occurrence, as well as an endless supply of baked goods to keep our energy levels up.
You’re Always Switched On
You wake up in the middle of the night to check your email, you’re constantly checking the latest news and keeping up to date with industry events.
You Become The Planner
Friends and family rely on you to know the best hotels in the best locations, so they leave it to you to organise the regular weekends away and summer holiday plans.
You Up Your Standards
You begin to choose hotels and destinations with much more thought about the benefits they have to offer, rather than the cost. Sure, they have a restaurant, but do they have a Michelin-star menu?
You Discover A Way With Words
You’ll master the art of saying the exact same thing, about the exact same destination, in seven creatively different ways.
You Preserve Your Battery Power
You feel genuine panic when your phone battery starts to die. You have a spare charger in the office and one in the car. Just in case.
You List Everything.
You make lists. And lists of your lists. With diagrams to organise your lists. You’ll also develop a love of Post-It notes.
You Automatically Describe Hotels Like A Review
Your friends ask what you think of a particular hotel. Rather than saying, ‘yes, it’s lovely’, you go the extra mile. “Well, it’s centrally located with a Michelin-starred menu and exceptional banqueting facilities. A real boutique retreat.”
