Travel WILL Return.. Will You be Ready?

Undoubtedly, COVID-19 has affeted a wide range of industries, the least of which is travel. On behalf of travel advisors everywhere, a big "THANK YOU!" to all of you who have reached out during this unprecedented season; to say that we all have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 related cancellations would be an understatement!

That said, we all know that the ability to travel - and consumer demand - will return in due time... and we want to share some very good news with you today.

1. NOW is the time to start planning your next vacation!
As with investing in the financial markets, the best time to "get in" is when the prices are the lowest... and while travel providers are busy today processing cancellations and postponements, there will soon be hundreds of great deals available to those who want to take advantage of the down market. Some savvy travelers are already booking trips for the back half of the year and 2021, and protecting them with travel insurance in case they're unable to travel at that time.
 
If you've put your 2020 plans on hold and want to begin planning your vacation for when the virus subsides, please schedule a phone appointment with your travel professional to get the process started now. We will respond to requests on a first-come, first-served basis, and anticipate a significant demand for our planning services.
