Instead, our only KPIs revolve around providing the best service possible, whether that means spending extra time with customers, going above and beyond to ensure their satisfaction or even just having a friendly chat. We want our customers to feel like they're talking to a friend, not just a salesperson.

But don't let our laid-back approach fool you, we take our product knowledge seriously. We expect our team members to be experts on our offerings and regularly test and verify their knowledge to ensure they're up to speed and good at their jobs. We also value continuous improvement and embrace our company's principles, constantly looking for ways to enhance the customer experience.

We offer a long-term and stable opportunity to work with a fast-growing company, a supportive team, and a chance to have a real career path. Our team members are not outsourced contractors, they are a genuine part of the company.

So, if you're a customer service pro with a passion for travel and a desire to create exceptional experiences, come join us on our mission to revolutionise the travel industry and make a difference.
