Summer is Here!
(DETM July Newsletter)
How busy are you? Most agencies I chat with and visit are very busy these days. Europe and Alaska cruises seem to be doing well. Below is a pic from our Alaska cruise a few years ago.
We are even seeing some summer holidays to Mexico, especially Cancun and the Riviera Maya, for some of those clients who werenít ready to travel at the end of the sun season. Of course, passport renewal delays and airport line-ups, not to mention changing Covid requirements, make your jobs as travel agents even more important! Iím glad you are there to advise your clients appropriately.
Well, summer has finally started here, with a few days at the end of June over 30C. We still try to get out and enjoy the local parks and reserves.
I hope you get out and enjoy our beautiful summer also!
