Travel Request Proposal

A travel request proposal is a proposal that is prepared by a travel company or agency, usually, in response to a travel request of a client company. The client companies often want to contract out the hassle of official travel arrangements to travel agencies and hence, request proposals from different companies to choose the most feasible one. However, sometimes, the travel agencies approach the client companies with their proposals to gain the contract, even without the client company’s request.

When a client company is outsourcing the travel arrangements, they are requesting the travel agency to provide the services of visa processing, ticketing, airport pick-up, immigration facilitation, hotel booking, transportation arrangements for the destination, etc.

When a travel agency is preparing a travel request proposal, the services the client is seeking and its requirements should be the focus. As other competitor travel agencies may reach out to the client with their proposals as well, the travel agency should be very careful while preparing this document, so to increase its chances of selection. Some of the considerations are:

  • The proposal needs to be prepared in a comprehensive, professional and formal manner.
  • The details of services and their costing need to be competitive as well as should be clearly stated without ambiguous statements.
  • As this proposal is like a marketing and promotional tool, if it is persuasive and attractive enough, it can increase the probability of the proposal’s approval.
  • The benefits, that the client can enjoy by making a deal, need to emphasize.
  • The cover page, usually the first thing to be glanced at, should be attractive enough with all the relevant details, and yet should not be wordy. If the client likes the cover page, it would likely go through the whole document as well, increasing the chances of acceptance.
  • The terms and conditions need to be practical, feasible and competitive.

After taking into account the requirements and demands of the client and considering all the ways that a proposal can be made attractive enough, a travel agency prepares and presents the proposal. This indicates that a customized proposal is prepared for every client with varying details. However, the general details included in all the proposals are usually the same, which are:

  • Executive summary/introduction.
  • Company profile.
  • Contract and services details.
  • Benefits to the client.
  • The competitive edge of the travel agency.
  • Costs and charges involved.
  • Persuasive statements.
  • Terms and conditions.

In addition to the selection of services and details and how to present them, a travel agency has to either design the proposal from scratch or use an available template. For the second option, it can simply download the template and customize it as per its requirements.

If the client accepts the proposal of the travel agency, they would make a deal and both can enjoy the associated benefits of the contract. However, if the client accepts a competitor’s proposal, it would cost the travel agency in terms of lost resources, including time.
