The longtime Collette CEO is confident travel will be back.
“Travel advisors have always been able to really cater to what people want in a vacation. They are constantly dealing with the travelers’ preferences, and now there are going to be new widespread preferences, like avoiding crowds. They’re wondering ‘how can I visit the places I want to go, but still remain safe?’ and I think that’s going to be hard for most travelers to do on their own. So getting someone who’s an expert in certain areas will make a huge difference, not only in helping travelers have a great experience, but also giving them peace of mind having someone with knowledge and expertise working for them.”
