We are here to assist our clients; their health, safety and well-being is are our top priority. We will provide available information, so our clients can make informed decisions about their travel plans.
Our travel consultants are trained to monitor situations like weather disruptions, health situations or travel warnings that may impact their clients’ travel plans. As such, they also can work on alternate travel plans and can likely have those in place the moment the need arises.
Whether traveling domestically or internationally, our number one priority is always our clients’ safety and well-being.
We are advocates for our clients; and they know that by working with a true travel professional, we are there for them before, during, and after their trip should they need us –which gives them peace of mind.
We strongly encourage all clients, whether they are traveling domestically or internationally, to purchase travel insurance, particularly at the time travel is booked. Travel insurance offers an additional layer of protection for travelers, and can potentially help save hundreds or thousands of dollars if an unforeseen medical or travel emergency occurs.
If you have booked a trip and are unsure of the status, please email or call your travel consultant.
