ABSTRACT
The article offers information on how a travel agent at Global Travel dealt with a customer. When the customer reached the office the agent was busy, but soon attended him. The agent did apologize for the wait, and she was exceptionally friendly and attentive. The client was convinced that she knows all things well, as she covered all areas of his holiday requirements. The client closed the deal smoothly and swears that he will definitely return to this agency in the future too.
