Maths is extremely important in this business. Airfares are an exercise in logistics and maths. Mathematics is critical to making a profit in the travel industry. We take into account every cost involved in planning a trip - from postage stamps, to bus tours and hotels.
People who want to work in travel do a specialised training course and maths is a big part of that. I like to employ people with a good maths ability. We live and die by our maths skills really. It is a great industry to work in, I have been all over the world for work and still have a passion for travel.
