MANILA, Philippines — If you and the rest of the fam have been avid travelers before or at any point during this pandemic, it’s not hard to notice the changes adopted to minimize the risks of getting sick. These measures allowed international borders to open and let the “revenge travel” phenomenon quickly pick up pace.
While we can once again seek out adventures throughout the world, it is no excuse to relax caution. It is still pretty much possible not only to fall ill but also to put yourself and your loved ones in harm’s way if you’re not careful. General safety is equally as important as not getting sick.
Travel, whether by your lonesome or with the whole family, while ultra-exciting, is often simultaneously stressful. Not to mention nerve-wracking because of all the planning and booking processes involved.
This is why Europe travel expert brands Trafalgar, Insight Vacations and Uniworld have stepped up to the plate to make things easy-breezy. They also continue to expand, now with hundreds of premium guided tour itineraries and cruises to choose from—with guaranteed departures to boot!
All of these brands are under The Travel Corporation (TTC), which has been in business for over 100 years. As a well-established travel company, you are assured that all of its brands adhere to travel safety while giving you the best and most premium ways to enjoy your destinations of choice.
