Checkedin Chica: Monica Horn

Harvey World Travel’s Product Manager, Monica Horn, is often referred to as the travel industry’s sweetheart. Monica shares her story with us

Who are you and what made you get into travel?

I’m Monica Horn, Product Manager of Harvey World Travel. I must say, getting into travel wasn’t exactly a planned strategy. I started at Budget Car Rental in the reservations team back in 1995 (I was 5 at the time J) and through various promotions and opportunities I’ve landed up in the fabulous consortium of BidTravel.

What has the industry taught you?
To always treat people with respect and to do the right thing at the right time for the right reason. When your intentions are always good and in the best interests of others, you will receive people’s loyalty and trust which is a big deal!

Where do you think you will be in the next 5 years?
I would love to say on my yacht in the Caribbean, but life is so hard to predict.. Wherever I land up, I am sure to be adding value to people’s lives and making a difference, that’s my life’s calling after all.

What is your most pleasant travelling experience? I really enjoyed Skiing with Club Med in Italy. Wasn’t too good at skiing, but the experience, snow, wine, heated pool… Truly amazing!
