New Year Travel Deals for 2022

Travel Deals - Book your 2022 getaway by February 28th, 2021

I am sure if you are like me, you have itchy feet and are very excited to travel again when it is safer to do so. My discussions with various industry partners and government officials we can expect to stay local for most of 2021.

The silver lining of exploring closer to home is that you get to experience some of the incredible attractions and experiences that people from all over the world have come to know. It gives us the ability to help our local economy and our local tourism operators to bridge that time until we are able to welcome visitors back.

Currently many of our travel partners have some incredible incentives to book your holiday for 2022 and beyond. We are confident that by the second quarter of 2022 (April onward) life will slowly return to what we are more familiar with. As the global vaccination program is rolled out in 2021 and the COVID-19 case numbers begin to stabilize and fade away - the confidence and hunger for travel will increase exponentially. Those that choose to lock in their travel plans now will be rewarded with the best price, best value, the best perks, and the best payment and cancellation policies.
