Turn off the Pause Button

Slowly in the weeks to come I will begin to reopen my business. There will be a very new business plan. As the past several months have shown the travel industry, all of us; suppliers, agencies and consultants, and clients that the old model does not work. First, the old model was just too relaxed. As a result, we all got hurt during this pandemic. With better details and guidelines, we can all have a better travel experience. A new model is mandatory if I am to continue to be able to provide you with the level of expertise and service you have come to expect and deserve.

The travel industry will never be quite the same. Most, but not all, travel companies I book for you pay me commission for the service I provide for them, but no longer enough for the service I provide for you. So, the business model is changing. More to follow in weeks to come.

For those of you most eager to travel there are some bright spots in the industry. A few countries are opening to US travelers with restrictions, especially for tests. Many states are still requiring a quarantine upon arrival if you are departing from highly infected state. Caution is most advised and learn the restrictions before you depart. We are all learning to live with the virus. Yet we need to remain vigilant. To fully open our country and others for US traveler, the USA numbers need to get down. Currently the USA has about 40,000 new virus cases a day, we need to get that number down to under 10,000. If you want to travel it is up to us.

WEAR THE MASK, STAY DISTANT AND USE THE WIPES. We are all in this together. Until all co-operate, none will be safe to travel.

Meanwhile, begin to plan and think about the future. Click on the Wanderlist icon and dream. Fall of 2021 and 2022 are not that far away! Stay well.
