To travel or not to travel . . . that is the question!

Is travel still possible?

I know the last 5 months have been difficult and the current turn of events regarding the Spain Quarantine rules and the local lockdown restrictions in the North West don’t do anything to ease the situation. I understand there’s nothing harder on passionate travellers than staying at home!

The reality playing out seems to be that we are all going to have to start living with a new norm. Does that mean no travel? No, I don’t think so. We need travel personally — it’s important to us physically and emotionally and for the local communities around the world that rely on tourism pounds, be that for wildlife, local economies or infrastructure to bring opportunities to regions, responsible tourism plays a huge part.

As professional travel advisors our role is to guide you in selecting the right tour operator/hotel / villa / adventure/cruise etc. to take. That means working with professional, trusted tour operators who match our client needs. Yes, it may mean wearing masks while travelling on planes and perhaps having temperature checks in resort. These new protocols aren’t always easy to adhere to. It’s not always fun to put on a mask on a hot day. But this is just what we are going to have to do for a while. Our first clients to travel have all done so trouble-free and we have been on hand 24/7 to advise/guide them through a travel experience that they have not had to deal with before.

We’re here for you, your trusted travel adviser

Working with tour operators and accommodation providers we know we can trust from our dealings both pre and during the lockdown means that we feel confident in the advice that we offer. We are not here to hard sell to you but to be your trusted travel adviser.

Some clients are happy to travel now. As the travel journalist Simon Calder put it on GMTV this week “Greece is safer than the UK so I’d go to Greece” so we are working with our trusted partners to ensure that for those of you who do wish to travel now, we have the right partners to fulfil your holiday.

Lots of lessons have been learnt and protocols put into place. For some of us, it’s still not time to travel. We understand that. But if you are ready, we believe we have found ways to travel that feel appropriate in this new reality. I encourage you to contact us to discuss whether the time is right for you, be that now or for 2021. And to help you on your way, and taking the added advice of Simon Calder, here are some holidays for those of you who may feel they want to getaway.
