National Travel Advisor Day
This year National Travel Advisor Day was celebrated on Wednesday, May 5th. The value of booking with your travel advisor is very clear. As borders were closing everywhere last year and travelers were trying to get home, we stepped in.
When travelers spent hours on hold negotiating refunds or navigating their way home, our clients didn’t have to. It’s our job to handle any type of issue on your behalf. It’s our responsibility to read the fine print and understand what’s a good fit for you. We have your back.
Given the overwhelming intricacies of the post-COVID travel industry, we’re here to remind you how important it will be to work with professionals like us.
While our part of the travel industry was devastated by COVID, travel interest is picking back up at a record pace. Many of you are thinking ahead to where you might want to go on your long-overdue vacation. In fact, according to a study conducted by the American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA), 44% of Americans are getting vaccinated so that they can travel. Travel is on the horizon.
If you want to travel confidently, use a professional travel advisor. According to ASTA, there is a 98% chance that the travel agency you work with is a small business and a 66% chance they’re female-owned. You can feel good about supporting a small business by working with us, but you’ll feel even better when you see what we can do for you.
Since you can only do your first post-pandemic vacation once, we highly recommend that travelers don’t DIY something that important. As the world starts traveling again, travel advisors are here to help…and here to stay!
