Travel agency simulation is dedicated for teachers of entrepreneurship and doing business esp. in secondary schools and universities with tourism professions. Simulations allow students to learn the secrets of running a travel agency. Every student plays a role of an entrepreneur, owner of a travel agency, and makes decisions that all owners struggle with in everyday life. The fact that students compete with the companies run by their classmates is an extra motivation. In the simulation, students analyse the market to design an offer that will meet the needs of the customers, monitor competitors’ activity and manage their travel agencies not only to be profitable but also to keep high quality of their services, and satisfaction of both customers and employees.
The simulation enables training of skills such as entrepreneurship, group work, analytical thinking, making decisions under time pressure etc.
