Holidays are coming back again!

Holidays are coming back

It's no doubt that the last few months have been a strange time for us all, but now normality's nearing, we hope that the latter half of the year can provide some hope and excitement after much unexpected change, whether that be seeing loved ones again, heading to your favourite restaurant or jetting off onto a well-deserved holiday.

KNOW ONE KNOWS TRAVEL LIKE WE DO

With planes flying through the skies once more, we're delighted that summer 2020 has begun, bringing us an air of excitement and freedom that we'd forgotten not so long ago. But booking a holiday right now may seem like a minefield; what countries are safe? Will I need to quarantine? Will my travel insurance be valid, you may ask?

Booking your holiday is often half of the fun, and as experienced travel professionals, we're keeping up to date with the ins and outs of travel rules so that we can answer your questions or concerns with confidence and clarity. That just leaves you to sit back, relax and look forward to your holiday!

BRINGING YOU PEACE OF MIND

We don't just see ourselves as your local travel agent; we really care about our customers. Health and safety are just as important to us as the holiday itself, which is why we're keeping our finger on the pulse to make sure we're the first to know of any travel changes. Should amended regulations impact your booking, whether you're home or in-resort, we'll be in touch to talk you through your options so you can make a decision that's right for you. Whatever you decide, you're in safe hands with us.

ADAPTING TO THE 'NEW NORM'

One thing's for sure, we've come a long way over the last few months and the excitement around making plans again is something we can all share. Granted, we've all had to adapt and will continue to do so – and there are no exceptions when on holiday. Whilst resorts are open and welcoming us again, you may notice some changes; be prepared for face masks, social distancing and less guests for the time being – but rest assured that fun is still on the agenda! Resorts are going the extra mile to make sure that facilities are open safely so that you can enjoy your break just like before.

Plus, we'll be with you throughout your whole booking journey, giving you the latest rules on your chosen resort, so there will be no hidden surprises when you arrive.

BACK ON THE HIGH-STREET

The ease of just 'popping in' with travel questions has returned, and we for one are thrilled! In our eyes, there's nothing quite like a friendly face to put your mind at ease. Whether it be a current travel query, a booking amendment or you'd like to sit down and chat about where to travel to this year or next, we're all ears. So, if you're on the high-street, pop in and say hello. We'd love to see you.

WE'RE READY WHEN YOU ARE

Whilst we're adapting to our new idea of 'norm', we understand that travelling isn't at the top of everyone's to-do list just yet. When you're ready, we'll be on-hand to give you the latest travel advice and find that long-awaited holiday you'll very much deserve!

We're very much open, so any questions about upcoming holidays or future travel, we would love to hear from you. Visit us in-store, give us a call or pop us an email and we'll be in touch with all the information you need.
