We're Here for You

Mar 26, 2020

Dear Travel Associates Family,

If you need to cancel your reservation due to COVID-19, please fill out our cancelation request form and an agent will contact you as soon as possible.

Thank you to all of you who have been loyal clients of Travel Associates and have trusted us for many years with your vacation plans. To any past clients that might be reading this with pending travel plans not booked through Travel Associates, this message is also for you because we want to help.

Now more than ever, our business is committed to be there for our travelers, but we must also ensure we protect the health & safety of our advisors, our clients and the communities nationwide where we do business. For that reason, effective Friday, March 20, we will be temporarily closing our retail locations. We are still open “virtually” and will still be available to help but your trusted Travel Associates advisors will be working remotely until this crisis is resolved.

We know that due to these uncertain times there are many questions regarding the safety of travel. For most of us, we have never experienced the disruption to travel and our daily lives that we are facing right now in America and around the world due to the Covid-19 pandemic. You might find yourself asking questions like, “Is it safe to travel?”, “When is the right time to travel?”, “What if I’ve already booked travel?”, “What should I do?” and “How should I respond?”.

The most important thing that you can do right now is know the facts and be prepared to act on them when appropriate. Our travel advisors are here to help guide the way, as we have been for the past several decades, and we will continue to be there for you and all your travel needs for the years to come. It is times like these that truly demonstrate what it is like to have a trusted travel professional at your side as we all navigate these uncertain waters. We are passionate travelers ourselves and are here for you. We call this the human approach.

We welcome you to contact your trusted Travel Associates Advisor to ask any questions, whether it be about the uncertainty of your upcoming travel plans, or to start discussing the much-needed vacation that we will all need when this current situation has subsided.

We also invite those what haven’t booked with us to reach out. We can’t promise all the answers on your particular situation, but we are happy to help with any advice we can provide, and we hope you come back to us when you are ready to travel again.

Travel Associates is committed to be there for all travelers during this unprecedented and uncertain time. As an organization we are built to support travelers and are looking forward to getting through this crisis. The travel industry has proven time and again that it is resilient, and we anticipate the day when we are all back experiencing the joy that travel brings.

We are here to help. Please contact your trusted travel consultant over the phone or via email, both of which can be found here.

Stay well, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely, James N. Bovino Brand Leader Travel Associates, USA
