The Future of Travel and the role of Travel Professionals
Looking to the future, the role of travel professionals will be more important than perhaps ever before
23 April 2020
As we all continue to ‘do our bit’ to flatten the ubiquitous COVID19 curve, here in Australia and New Zealand we are beginning to see the first signs of the road to normality slowly opening again and lockdown restrictions beginning to be relaxed.
Whilst uncertainty remains as to when Australia and New Zealand’s borders will reopen to allow international travellers again, we are certain that when travel does resume, demand for our beautiful regions will be high. Consequently, now is a wonderful time to start forward planning for a well-deserved vacation in destinations such as ours.
Recognizing that the role of travel professionals will be more important than perhaps ever before, our teams in Sydney and in Auckland are ready to assist you to begin turning client dreams into reality. We appreciate that travel advisors and travellers alike will be looking for reassurances that they and their travel deposits are in safe hands, that travel plans can be amended if the need arises, and that travellers will be comforted by the confidence of long established and trusted local support.
As the leading DMC for bespoke travel to Australia and New Zealand, with more than 34 successful years in business, the team at Southern Crossings are, and will continue, to be here with you, and for you, every step of the way.
Whilst no one could have foreseen or prepared for the current situation, our strong and solvent financial position, in combination with ongoing prudent financial management, provides us with the ability to see out this unprecedented predicament.
Our unparalleled industry relationships and ongoing communications with local suppliers, enable us to be able to negotiate and offer the most favourable booking conditions that allow travellers to commit to travel plans with confidence.
And when the time is right to welcome your clients back here again, our teams on the ground in Australia and New Zealand will continue to have access to the most current local information and the ability to provide clients with 24/7 in-country support.
The team at Southern Crossings remain committed to supporting you and your clients, throughout - and well beyond - this challenging situation, and we look forward to again being able to deliver the same extraordinary journeys that have been the foundations of our success over more than three decades of business.
Stay safe and keep in touch,
Stuart, Sarah and the team at Southern Crossings
