Travelport: The Future of Travel: Caribbean Comeback
Presented by Devin Kanaz from Travel Weekly, and Kathryn Folliott a travel Weekly Editor.
Travel Weekly is a travel agency that has jobs such as journalists to write about different locations and the things to do there, or publisher and editor for the website or post that they make. The jobs have a large range all involving promoting and informing others about different travel options.
A few interesting things I found while listening to this webinar was one, that Jamaica has 0 COVID cases from the travel and tourism sectors of the island. They have done a very good job keeping the island separate from the pandemic. Jamaica is also taking extra precautions as they open their borders to tourists and strive to keep COVID out.
Another interesting part of the webinar was from Samantha Taylor from Sunwing who mentioned how Sunwing is offering travelers insurance to help keep travelers safe during this pandemic. Along with the service they did that said almost 70% of travelers are considering a trip in the next 6 months. This was interesting to see how even with everything going on people are still wanting to go out and explore the world.
