The World Travel & Tourism Council’s (WTTC) annual research shows that the Travel & Tourism sector not only accounts for over 10% of global GDP but for one in ten jobs on the planet, and one in four new jobs created globally in the last five years. COVID-19 has dramatically altered life as we know it and the Travel & Tourism sector is uniquely exposed. As we consider the impact of the crises, we realize it could fundamentally alter the future of the Travel Agency business.
When we first heard about COVID-19 we made an effort to address cancellations, refunds and rebooking, in many instances for little or no charges. For months now, we’ve been thoroughly following the increasingly complex and ever-fluctuating atmosphere of entry restrictions, quarantine, testing, hygiene measures and government travel advice.
Core Travel is continually following the advice given by the World Health Organization and by governments, and we’re in touch with our partners to be aware of the new regulations and guidelines carried out in each country.
Our team is composed by advisors who know their clients and provide expert consultation and support, making travel easier, more enjoyable, and more accessible. We have been very fast and efficient on defining and implementing safety and hygiene protocols.
We know clients are anxious about travelling again and are looking to professional travel advisors for information on what is safe, what is open, which hotels have implemented enhanced hygiene measures, and they want an advocate there for them if something happens before, during or after their trip; here we are four you.
The safety measures in place at airports and arrival requirements will vary between countries.
