Holidays are go! Or are they? This will be the focus of the latest TTG seminar, which will explore the impact of the government’s latest announcements and how the sector has responded.
With 4 July marking the official lifting of travel advice and the partial return of British summer holidays, the travel industry has been left with myriad questions: What advice should agents and operators be offering their customers about the new rules? Are they enough to inspire confidence in the market? And what exactly will holidays in this post-Covid era look like?
This latest TTG seminar taking place on 9 July, sponsored by Siren Communications, and part of the TTG Restart Travel series, will answer all these questions and more, ensuring you are equipped to provide your customers with the latest advice and information.
The seminar will kick off at 2pm with a session featuring top industry lawyers and insurance experts who will explore the government’s traffic light/air bridges system, what it will mean for customers if a country turns “red” while they’re abroad, what the insurance implications are, and the advice that agents and operators should be issuing to clients.
This will be followed with a session with agents, who will discuss how clients have reacted to the new rules, whether the reported “explosion in bookings” has come true and how they’re working to convince clients to go on holiday.
The afternoon will continue with tips from PR expert Katie Wright, who leads the travel and tourism practice at Siren Comms, and will offer top tips and key advice on how to get important messages about health and safety across without alarming or deterring would-be travellers.
From here, the seminar will move on to explore more closely exactly what holidays abroad now look like as we catch up with TTG special projects editor Madeleine Barber live from Gran Canaria, where she will discuss her experiences of travelling to the Spanish island, and what the hotels and resorts now look like.
The afternoon will conclude with an interview with the UK’s biggest tour operator Tui, as commercial and business development director Richard Sofer discusses the challenges of ensuring holidays are safe in this post-Covid era and why clients should feel reassured jetting off into the sunshine this summer.
The seminar will be held via InEvent. Details of how to access the event will be sent once your ticket has been purchased.
Tickets to attend the seminar cost £5 (excl VAT).
