The Journey Ahead

Looking Forward

Dear Traveler, 

 

As you know, one of the great joys of travel is that count down period of excitement and anticipation before the journey begins. The experiences that will become our memories begin as our dreams. With turning the page on 2020 – a year which caught us all by surprise – we begin the new year with our eyes wide open, excited about the possibilities for travel, when the time is right, perhaps this year and/or beyond.

 

One trend we have already been seeing is that the frustration and disappointment of this past year has left travelers more enthusiastic than ever about discovering the world. After so many months of missed vacations, limited mobility, and cabin fever, we are all anxious to experience the freedom and exhilaration that comes with exploring fantastic destinations.

 

After a year with almost no travel, those of us at The Travel Corporation have been preparing for what we anticipate will be a great desire by many to travel again, when they feel comfortable to do so. Exactly when that travel will take place remains to be seen. To be sure, with the rollout of vaccines for Covid-19, we are starting to turn a corner, and the time for travel is drawing closer.

 

More important than any objective date, however, is when we reach that point in time when you, our travelers, are ready to book and travel with us again. Toward that end, and to help provide you with the peace of mind and comfort needed to consider traveling again, each of our brands has put in place new protocols and practices to help ensure our guests’ health and wellbeing when traveling with us.

 

We invite you to visit TTC.com/comfort where you’ll find updated information about this. There is a short video about these protocols, which include an industry first – a Wellbeing Director on every guided holiday provided by Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, and Luxury Gold (excluding Japan, Australia & New Zealand). You will also learn about the new state-of-the-art, non-toxic and eco-friendly “Premium Purity” hygiene technique for electrostatic cleaning we are rolling out at all Red Carnation Hotels and onboard Uniworld’s fleet of owned ships.

 

Important as your comfort and peace of mind is while traveling, we want it to begin the moment you book with any TTC brand. At TTC.com/comfort you will also learn about our new, more flexible booking, deposit and cancellation policies. New payment options are also available for those looking to pay over time or use a third party payment site like Uplift (In the USA and Canada) or ZipMoney (in Australia, New Zealand and the UK) both of whom we work with today, and are integrated into our booking systems too. New CoVid-19 travel insurance policies are also being rolled out in those markets where it is available.

 

As some of us start to find our travel legs again during 2021, many of us may wish to travel where we feel most secure, close to home. TTC brands have designed and introduced new immersive “near not far” holidays in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. We invite you to visit Trafalgar and Insight Vacations to learn more, and to take special note of new itineraries by Contiki, offering adventures for the younger generation of travelers (18 to 35 years old), for whom these past months of isolation have been particularly challenging.

 

While a good deal will change in how we travel, some things will not. TTC has long been driven by the core beliefs that we must make travel personal and make travel matter, while always being driven by delivering passionate, caring service to all of our guests and travelers. Going forward, we believe that both of these well intended travel tenets will become even more important. This past year has been exceedingly difficult for the many families and communities around the globe that depend on tourism. They are anxious to welcome you back, and as you plan your travels with us for 2021 and beyond, know that you will be playing an important role in their recovery too.

 

Your travel will also support the work of our own TreadRight Foundation, which annually funds numerous philanthropic projects around the globe focused on our three pillars – Planet, People, and Wildlife. Unlike other travel companies, we do not ask for donations from our travelers, by take a percentage of our profits annually and donate them to Treadright.

 

Our three TreadRight ambassadors have recently completed some beautiful and moving short videos, which we invite you to watch here. As and when the doors of travel open again, we look forward to resuming and expanding the positive impact travel can have on the world, as described in the TreadRight Pledge. (If you have not yet taken the pledge, we invite you to join us, committing to make your future travels matter.)

 

As we all start this new year – and we begin our second century as a now fourth generation, family owned and run business, all of us are here for you. Please feel free to reach out to your travel advisor or to our contact center, via phone, text, or chat. We are more than happy to address any of your questions or concerns and tell you of a world of possibilities, as you take the first step on your next journey – letting yourself begin to dream again.

 

As always, we look forward to serving you. Until then, may you and your loved ones all stay healthy and be safe, with our best wishes for the new year.

 

Sincerely,

Brett Tollman
Chief Executive – TTC
