What’s happening with travel now?
It is fair to say that 2020 certainly had its challenges when it came to travel. We have been humbled by the feedback from our clients, whom have praised us for helping them amend their holiday plans, and thanks to our strong supplier relationships, we have seen many clients remain stress free.
As we move forward through 2021, we see confidence returning, and slowly but surely we see ‘bubbles’ opening up in our own backyard, and around the globe. Airlines, airports, cruise lines, resorts, ground operators and Governments are all working hard to raise health protocols even higher to ensure a return to travel. The International Air Transport Association (IATA), are currently working with airlines & airports on a E-Passport, that will link with your current passport, but carry vital information such as vaccine status & your travel arrangements to facilitate the best possible experience for all travellers. We can’t wait to see this!
Whatever your destination or cruise preference, we are here to help. As a proud Kiwi owned and operated company, you can be assured you are in safe hands.
