Practice Typing Itineraries

When you practice typing itineraries it is advisable to get accurate details about the layout and headings before you begin to type.

First, an itinerary is a personal travel list stating the date, time and different events for a person who is traveling or has to go on a field tour. It gives details as to where the person should be on a certain day and time and what will be done at that period.

Visits by your employer to another country may involve rail or air travel, hotel reservations, the departure and times of arrival at destination and airline flight numbers, airports, check-in and departure times, arrival times in home and local times, names and addresses of hotel.

Telephone numbers should always be shown clearly.

Copies of the itinerary should be sent to all those who may be concerned with the arrangements.

It is typed as tabulation on a card or as a booklet. Here is a simple itinerary for a person traveling from Trinidad to Tobago.

The itinerary below has a very simple layout. The employee just went to a meeting in Tobago and came back on the same day.

As you can see it is clearly laid out and easy to understand. This is important so that the employee will not be confused as to where to go when.

You can keep it as a guide for other future itineraries you may have to type.
