CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION

1.1. Background Tourism is an industrial service that has a complex mechanism since it handles the tourists movements from their country to the tourism object up to back to their country. In this case, the tourism service involved many components to support the tourism program, such as transportation, accommodation, restaurant, guide and etc. Therefore, tourism industry has an important role in developing tourism. One of the tourism industries that have an important role in developing tourism is Travel Agent. A travel agent is a retail business that sells travel related products and services to customers, on behalf of suppliers, such as airlines, car rentals, cruise lines, hotels, railways, sightseeing tours and package holidays that combine several products (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Travel_agent, accessed on May 29, 2010). Travel Agent is the bridge between the tourist and the supplier service of accommodation, restaurant, tour adventure operator, tourism operator etc. Generally, tourists use the travel agent service to conduct their tour itinerary since it is easy and cheap.

30

language ( make a conversation ), for the first time while handling the phone asking about the availability of the room in the hotel, the writer a little bit being in nervous and it was quite confusing when the feedback happened or the reservation stuff asking about the alternative way when the room was full, this is because of the writer did not have enough knowledge about the tourism industry, what is the mechanism and how to deal with the situation above. From this obstacle the writer began to learnt many things about the voice intonation ( the way to serve the clients in formal ways ), regards to the institution stuff when hang up the phone or make a call and asking for his / her name in order to make sure that there is a transaction through conversation by phone, this is intended to avoid the anonymous person who deal with us ( as a prove ). Another obstacle is while learning the clients file for one week is quite tiring, we must read the rest of the files in one map which has approximately 30 files and most of those files are in formal English language, so we must translated the vocabulary that we did not understand at all, and this activities the writer done approximately for 9 hours at 9 am until 5 pm. 3.5. The Achievement When the obstacle was occurred in the daily activity of the writer during conducted the job training in PT. Floressa Bali Wisata, it could not make the writer down moreover being in desperate sense. From those obstacles the writer then tried to fixed the problem that the writer gone through, the writer began learning how the Floressa stuff dealed with the

clients via phone, how they were replying clients e-mails. The writer was happy being together in one team with them since the stuff in PT. Floressa Bali Wisata were very kind and always help the writer when the writer got some problems, such as gave the outline of the conversation while the writer would call the hotel reservation to asked about the room availability, help the writer when the writer did not know how to reply the client email by giving the clear tutorial review in the empty paper. In this case, the writer are able to understand a little bit about the mechanism of the way stuff work and deal with the clients.

CLOSING

4.1. Conclusions After finishing the Work Field Practice in PT. Floressa Bali Wisata, it can be concluded that doing job in travel agent company is very interesting because almost all of activities were dealing with costumers, and very challenging as there were new experiences from day to day especially when there were tour programs. We can know everything happened in this world, we can know recent update information about the current situation since the company always linked to other overseas agent abroad. Beside those thing, by conducting job training in Travel agent company we can know about the technology especially computer technology, our skills in operating computer of using Microsoft Office, browsing the information on the internet, was really helped us in dealing with the technology when we had to apply the job or simply continued to study forward. Commonly, we operate Ms. Word to do those jobs and Outlook Express to reply the clients emails. Based on the writer experience during conducted the work field practice in PT. Floressa Bali Wisata, the writer can conclude some points below : 1. The writer are able to know and learning the situation and

condition in tourism industry directly.

33

2.

The writer can improve the English language and implementate the

English ability directly through correspondence via email and conversation ( writing, reading and speaking ) 3. 4. The writer can operate the computer especially Microsoft office The Writer can implementate the theory that the writer got in the

work place while make the comparison and learning it 5. Make a good cooperation between University and Travel agent

company 6. PT. Floressa Bali Wisata has given a huge contribution of the

education in Indonesia since the company willing to accept the trainer from University of Nusa Nipa or from other University in Indonesia. 4.2. SUGGESTION I my self as the trainer in PT. Floressa Bali Wisata would like to give some suggestions to the following institutions : a. For PT. Floressa Bali Wisata We suggest that for the first time conducted Job Training, the newbie trainer must be given the definite schedule in learning the clients files, minimal 3 hours or 4 hours in reading the clients file, just because it is quite tiring if we must read the whole files one week for about 9 hours a day. b. For University Of Nusa Nipa It is necessary for University Of Nusa Nipa in conducting

the internship program for 3 months or more as the experience of the

34

The Final Report Of Field Work Practice

writer one month is not enough time to learn about work place mechanism especially in Travel Agent Company which has some divisions that the writer must learn one by one, and of course it is not enough time while carry out in a short time since the first month is adaptation with the company situation and condition also make a good cooperation with the stuff. I my self would like to suggest that the University of

Nusa Nipa should give the intensive materials of teaching about the tourism, such as reservation, hotel management, travel agent management, and guiding for the student who wants to take tourism industry as the internship program. It can be done a month before conducting the internship program ( pembekalan ) since as the writer experience most activities in travel agent company are serving the client whether through writing email ( correspondence ) or make a conversation by phone, and all the formal languages are using tourism terms. Before those both points above can be done in the

University of Nusa Nipa, it is important to think twice if only want to conduct the internship program outside NTT province since there are so many obstacles that the trainer will go through such as the financial point of view, the brand-new condition and environment in the work place, politic and policy point of view as the writer

35

The Final Report Of Field Work Practice

experience in Bali had ever been bumped into the local police since the KTP ( self identity ) must Bali ID. The last point from the writer is about the financial of the

internship program should be transparent. In this case, the management should be integrated one another. This is can be mentioned as the transparent financial if only the list of the items are definite for the internship program administrative such as the estimate for the internship program only, what those estimate are for, and it must be reported individually in one part of internship program such as the report financial for travel internship, for the education internship, for the hotel internship and it must be report to the student who want to conduct the internship. The consumption, transportation and accommodation estimate should not be paid in order to avoid the suspicious thing of the management credibility since the estimate will get back to our account.
