The Dynamic World of Travel Retail

Organized as a separate unit within The Estée Lauder Companies, Travel Retail celebrated its 20th anniversary in July 2012. It remains one of the largest global growth opportunities for prestige beauty and our vision is to become the market leader in luxury beauty for the traveling consumer.

In Travel Retail, we have transformed what was once a simple transaction-based business into one that considers the entire journey of our consumer. We now more closely synchronize our product launches and communications on a global scale.

Travel Retail has become a vital accelerator for many of our brands and products, helping to build strong brand awareness. For example, Estée Lauder, Clinique, and Bobbi Brown BB creams, all of which originally launched in Travel Retail, have spurred sales growth for these brands as we continue their rollouts around the world.

Already, we touch millions of passengers around the world each year, by 2022, we believe the Travel Retail channel will approach the size of the Western European market, the largest for prestige beauty.

High energy and an inquisitive mindset are crucial for a career in Travel Retail. You should expect to interact with people from all over the world, be accustomed to international travel, and have a fast-paced attitude along with passion to deliver High-Touch customer service.

Roles in Travel Retail include:

  • Beauty Consultants
  • Education & Training
  • Retail / Airport Coordinators
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Visual Merchandising
  • Corporate positions such as HR, Business Development and Finance
