Remember why you started in the travel industry in the first place – that’s the tip on how to have a strong beginning in the sector from Danielle Scott, customer experience manager with House of Travel.


Scott is a finalist in the Best Young Travel Agency Executive – Retail category of the TAANZ National Travel Industry Awards having first joined HOT in the product team after leaving university in 2016. ‘Sometimes we get so busy being busy we forget that this travel opportunity for our customers could be the highlight of their year and that they get the same excitement to experience a different country and culture that we do. That’s why we do what we do. ‘I think it is good to remember this during every interaction, to ensure we are helping hype the anticipation and the excitement for the customer.’


Scott manages the Voice of Customer programme at House of Travel and much of her time is spent interpreting and utilising customer feedback to help improve the products HOT provides, the systems it utilises and the overall customer experience at House of Travel. ‘The consistent trend with our customers is that their expectation of what constitutes great service continues to rise year on year and their tolerance of substandard service lessens. ‘Since implementing our Voice of Customer programme 18 months ago we have seen significant improvement in what were already exceptionally high NPS (Net Promoter Scores).
