Travel Agents Don’t Have to Go it Alone in a Crisis

Richard D’Ambrosio, Travel Market Report


Canadian travelers have been swept up in many natural and human made events that disrupted travel over the last 2-3 years, including the 2018 shooting in Las Vegas and three devastating hurricanes last fall.

For many travel advisors, these events required immediate assistance for travelers. For those whose clients were not impacted, agents still need to manage the growing anxiety many travelers have about an uncertain world.

This anxiety was reaffirmed at a recent panel discussion about crisis assistance for travelers, at Travel MarketPlace East in Toronto.
