Off Across The Pond We Go
Here we are almost at the end of September, and hopes for a late summer surge in bookings has not materialised (except perhaps, for the online travel agencies)
The good news though, especially if you have been vaccinated, is that the testing requirements are being relaxed and we have seen reports of the USA opening it’s borders from November. I haven’t seen the full details of this yet, but will post on my FB page when I do.
Over the weekend we heard the news of the volcano erupting on La Palma island, which is in the Canaries, though the other islands aren’t affected by all accounts. The last report I had was that people had been evacuated and the airport was open again. It could rumble on for a while yet though.
I am concentrating on overseas bookings for 2022 now, and autumn/winter holidays for Uk and abroad. Let’s hope we have no more lockdowns
There are some great UK breaks on offer and after joining forces with Great Little Breaks, and Not in the Guide books, I can offer not only city breaks, UK Christmas markets and theatre breaks, I can also offer retreats and breaks which are a little out of the ordinary, and even a little quirky. If you haven’t already, do follow my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/genietravelite).
I am busy planning for 2022, and would welcome your comments regarding any destinations you may like me to feature on my Facebook page or website (www.genietravel.co.uk). Some of the things I am planning are:
Consumer evenings either actual or virtual
Video chats ( once I have worked out how to do them!!)
Some great special offers, so keep an eye out on my FB page for ‘Genie’s Special Offers’ starting from the beginning of October.
Other things I am considering are discounts for my group pages members, Supplier profiles( so you can get to know some of the travel partners I can use to source your holiday ); Referral scheme; and Destination focus. So watch this space!!
For now though here are a couple of offers which popped into my newsfeed this week, which may inspire you. I have offers on other theatre breaks, and hotel breaks, and of course cruises. Is there a particular destination you are interested in?? Do let me know, and I will try to feature that destination on my FB page.
Until next time
