Whether or not they are ready to travel soon, Valente Travel’s Lisa Tetzlaff says people are quickly discovering that the time to book is now.
“Those that want to travel and do Europe need to book now or may not get the date and tours that they want if they wait,” the certified Sandals & Beaches specialist and certified autism travel professional from Windsor, Ont. tells Travel Courier. “Calls have been coming in and I have been making bookings for tours and cruises for 2022 and 2023.”
As international travel heats up and people are eager to explore again, the agency is finding that prices are going up — not down.
“There are some people that think there will be great deals to get everyone wanting to travel again, but I haven’t seen too many of those,” she says. “The demand for travel is going to be higher than the supply we will be offered so trying to find availability at a last minute for those that are used to doing that kind of trip will be difficult. Travel requirements are changing and as vaccinations continue to roll out we will start seeing more and more people booking their long dreamed about trips.”
