Timed Practical Task Assessment SCENARIO: UTourEuro is a UK coach company who have bus depots in several towns in the UK. Their head office, through which all bookings are done, is in the Midlands. They offer transport to: o Major attractions within the UK and in Europe e.g. The London Eye, Disneyland Paris o Music festivals and concerts in the UK and in Europe o Major cities in Europe e.g. Paris, Madrid, Rome, Munich, etc. As well as providing the coach for the journey the company can provide optional extras such as: * Arrange hotels for guests * Supply tickets and, where appropriate, local tour guides * Organise trips around local places of interest. (All of these items are charged for in addition to the coach fare) One of their most popular trips is to Europe normally through the Channel Tunnel.

As with most tours there is a break even point that the company meet. In addition UTourEuro has to ensure that it makes a 20% profit on each tour. ...read more.

Possible software for this task would be either a database, Microsoft Access or a spreadsheet, Microsoft Excel.
