We just wanted to update you and let you know that there is a pent-up interest in international travel. We had an informational meeting in our hometown of Cape Coral, FL less than two weeks ago and we’ve already seen a significant uptick in registrations both last week and this week. In fact, if you will check our Upcoming Tours page, you will see we have only 1 seat left on one of our four scheduled tours and just 6 or 7 on a couple more of our tours for 2022. So, if you are thinking of traveling with us, don’t wait until we have to say, “I’m sorry, that tour is filled.”
Remember, a $500 deposit is what actually holds a spot for you. Telling us your are interested, doesn’t put you on a list. In this situation, the only list we go by is the one that Imagine Tours and Travel sends to us to confirm that a deposit has been made and you have been added to their trip list. If you want to be certain and not hurtin’ [because you missed out], go online at the links on the Upcoming Tours page or the links printed on all of the brochures. Make sure you always read the Fine Print on the brochures [they are downloadable at all of the links we have on our website or you can email us at email@example.com and we will snail mail a printed brochure. The Fine Print is important because two of the tours (Germany and Greece), require a second $500 deposit within two weeks of the first deposit. And the final payment for those two trips need to be in 120 days before the trip begins. The Israel trips are different. $500 holds your spot on the trip and the final payment doesn’t need to be in until 90 days before the tour starts.
On another topic, the most common question we are being asked these days is related to COVID vaccinations. “Will a vaccination be required to travel?” “Will a COVID test be required to travel?” At this point, we do not have answers to either of these common questions. Each country and all of the airlines are working toward solidifying their policies when international travel starts back up. But, they haven’t disclosed where they plan to land on these policies. Rick Ricart of Imagine Tours and Travel has been updating us with information as it is being released. For example, we’ve been told that Greece is opening back up to International travel on May 1, 2021. We’ve been hearing that Israel will open back up to United States travel groups in early Summer. We will keep you informed as we receive more information.
