In the travel business, we prefer "punters" !
|Quoting BCAL (Reply 1):|
Therefore if you purchase a goods (like in a shop) or use a company's services (like the telephone/gas/electricty etc) you are a customer but if you engage the services of someone like a doctor, an accountant or (heavens forbid) a lawyer you are a client. But what about companies who provide a service as well as selling a product - e.g. banks? The preference in these politically correct days is for the word 'customer' hence you have 'customer service teams'.
