Help w/ documents to send after booking

Hello! After I apply down payment for my client, I send them a reservation confirmation & receipt email. I feel like Im lacking something though... I feel like some clients are left wondering whats next. I tend to be very personalized sending lots of emails, answering questions about this, etc so feel like I need another document explaining whats next. But Im racking my brain for what to say or how to word/create etc this document and Im just comimg up empty. Do any of you have any documents you send explaining what comes next after booking? I book some clients nearly a year out, so thats a long time before I contact them again, of course want them to know they can come to me for anything at all st any time... Im having brain fog! Any help, examples, shared documents etc is very appreciated!See More

"I have used my IATAN card on tours and hotel bookings.  Unfortunately, life is not fair these days.  We, as travel agents have to pay for IATAN cards while non travel agents get it free.  Thanks Geoff for contacting IATAN."

Tourism Authority of Thailand

I recently participated in the tourism authority of Thailand webinar.I had a few questions for clients going to Thailand and Contacted them after the webinar. They sent me information regarding an upcoming Fam in conjunction with China Air in November and was invited to go.I’m thrilled, but not familiar with the organization and wanted some reassurance on their contact information, safety etc.They’ve requested a copy of my passport and before I do that, I’d like some confirmation from an outside source on them.See More
