Tourism is an important, for some countries even vital, part of the economy, overall contributing an estimated 5% to the worldwide gross domestic product.

Extensive airline networks, the emergence of low cost airlines and the launch of familiar brand hotels in virtually every corner of the world, have made foreign countries more accessible and made the world a much “smaller” place.

International clientele is daily business and employees at hotels, airlines, travel agencies and tour operators know that being “international” is not simply being able to converse in another language, but it also requires a complete understanding of cultural diversity.

Tongue Tied works together with industry experts who understand this sector through extensive commercial practice, to meet the high communicative demands of hotels, travel agencies and tour operators.
