Peakes Travel Elite, Shrewsbury’s award-winning travel agent, are offering virtual coffee mornings to offer travel inspiration and reassurance to holidaymakers, ready for when the latest restrictions are lifted.

The travel agency has set-up a series of online sessions and will be inviting one of their favourite tour operators to each one.

Claire Moore, managing director at Peakes Travel Elite, said, “We will be providing everything you need to know about new travel protocols and a big dose of holiday inspiration, so you can start dreaming about your next getaway!

“I think we all need an escape from the dreariness of January and the hum drum of lockdown life, so we thought a positive and informative online chat might really help our customers, especially those who may be feeling isolated at home.

“Many of our customers can’t wait to get the go ahead to hop on a plane to far-flung lands, so we hope to give them some great new ideas. We know that some of our customers are feeling a little cautious about travelling again, so we are here to talk through all of their concerns and queries, run through the new health travel protocols, and pass on our expertise and reassurance.”

Peakes Travel Elite held their first coffee morning on January 7 with Explore! to discuss adventure holidays. One of the attendees, Ann O’Brien, said it just what she needed. She commented, “Whilst this is such a difficult, and at times scary time in our lives, hope and the belief it will improve has to stay at the front of our minds. The world is a beautiful place with amazing people and cultures – we have to believe we can explore again at some point in the not too distant future.”

The next coffee morning will be on January 21, with RailBookers to inspire rail travel all over the world. There will also be sessions on February 4 with Celebrity Cruises to hear about all of their new itineraries, developments and health at sea protocols, and on February 18 with Riviera Travel exploring river cruise and touring holidays.

Mrs Moore adds, “We want customers to feel inspired to travel safely again. There is more reason than ever before to book your holiday with a travel agent. We can offer customers a high level of reassurance with our ATOL bonded and ABTA protected holidays. We pass on that protection to our customers, which means we support them every step of the way if anything goes wrong with their holiday plans.”
