Ten years ago, the idea for Travel Agent Day was created to celebrate and show appreciation for Travel Agents, to be recognized on the first Wednesday in May.
This year, Travel Advisor Appreciation Day 2020 is marked during a time of the biggest challenge anyone has ever faced. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a sudden halt to travel plans all over the world, with countries shutting their borders to non-citizens, and leaving travellers stranded abroad in some cases.
Though we have spent countless hours helping our clients through this situation, rebooking plans, and assisting with Canadians returning home, our clients are always top of mind. As through any crisis situation, we know that the world will open up to us again. We will travel again. And when you are ready to travel, we are ready to help you plan that trip.
My colleagues and I are grateful to have your support. Your support of your business, by booking your travel with us, by recommending us to your family and friends, and by allowing us to help you create unforgettable memories through travel.
Thank you for trusting us with your travels.
Thank you for your business going forward and supporting your local travel advisor, a small business who is is struggling during this time when no one is able to travel.
But the world will open up again, and we will be able to travel again soon. And when that time comes, we will be ready to help you with your travel plans.
Sending out love and support to all my fellow travel advisor colleagues and to everyone in the travel industry.
“It’s a big world out there. It would be a shame not to experience it”
