They look after the administration of the firm and advice clients about visas, passports, foreign currency, vaccinations, car parking, travel insurance, excursions in resorts and the process of hiring cars or vehicles abroad. A cover letters for an executive assistant applying for a tour and travel company should highlight their skills of being outgoing and approachable backed with communication and customer service skills.
