We can’t quite believe it’s December and nearing the end of yet another year, and what a year it’s been!
Whilst this year’s chaos has been so much nicer than the last two years, it still hasn’t been an easy road. Booking and managing flights really is that much more difficult and time-consuming than it used to be. Schedule changes, cancelled flights, lost luggage, and the list goes on…. However, we do have to admit it’s great to be back planning holidays and seeing you all again; we really love what we do, even with all the extra challenges!
I’m going to keep this newsletter brief as, if you are anything like me at this crazy time of year, you may not even know what day it is!
Given the sheer volume of bookings we have been dealing with, which quite frankly is unsustainable, I am excited to welcome another shiny new consultant to the East Ivanhoe Team.
Sharon has over 10 years of experience as a Travel Consultant but had an (unwanted) break from the industry when the pandemic started. She is quickly finding her groove again and is ready to take on any new business. You can read more about Sharon below.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
We do love a bit of the Christmas Crazy in our office and although Robyn is very strict on not putting up the Christmas decorations before the 1st of December, she is the first one to bust out Mariah on the office stereo!
I have included our Christmas and New Year trading hours below for your reference and we will all be attempting to have an actual break so we are nice and fresh for when we return in 2023. We will, of course, be around for urgent assistance for those travelling over this time. As usual, I will send the details again closer to Christmas with contact details.
Travellers, thank you again for all your support and of course your patience this year, we really do appreciate each and every one of our lovely clients!
We wish you and your families the happiest of Festive Seasons and of course a 2023 full of travelling adventures!
As always, never stop travelling.
