Chapter 5. Travel Arrangements > Doing It Yourself

Doing It Yourself

Many employers ask administrative assistants to arrange travel services and not use a travel agent. If this is the case, first have your boss confirm basic departure and return times and dates, and then proceed to make the reservations.

Hotel Reservations

If the meeting is in a major city, make the lodging reservations without delay, because city hotels are often fully booked weeks in advance. State your employer's name, office or home address, telephone number, type of accommodation preferred (single room, two-bedroom suite, etc.), plus your own name as the contact person. Ask for written confirmation, which your boss should carry when traveling in case he or she arrives only to be told that no such reservation exists.
