Reservation Agent Job Description

A reservation agent is a person or company (like an airline’s call center) that handles the customer service for what are called reservation systems.

Reservation systems allow travelers to book travel in advance and are released to be sold.

Some reservation systems allow for bookings to be made online, while others require a travel agent.

Reservation systems allow for people or companies to set prices and book travel.

They also serve as airline call centers, allowing customers to get information, book flights, change or renew their reservations, or inquire about the status of a flight.
