Most ticket sellers are employed in the transport, sports and entertainment industries. Some work in ticketing companies or are contracted to agents such as music stores and newsagencies. They also work at showgrounds, betting agencies and tourism agencies.

The types of tickets sold include lottery, event and transport tickets (including bus, ferry and airline tickets). Many of the tasks of an airline ticket seller are very similar to that of a travel consultant. See the Travel Consultant profile for details.
