As tourism drops in Asia and Europe with Coronavirus (COVID-19) scares, Caribbean Travel is thriving! Epperly Travel clients are currently staying in Turks and Caicos, St. Barths, and St. Lucia with several other trips to the Caribbean islands planned through the spring.
Epperly Travel Founder and CEO was asked by Travel Market her opinions on Caribbean Travel amidst the Coronavirus and these are her thoughts.
“We’re getting asked about the coronavirus for every area we cover, including the Caribbean,” said Epperly, “but after the initial question when we are able to educate the clients on the facts as the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have laid them out, clients have been very happy to continue with their current vacation plans for trips that have occurred over the past few weeks and are occurring in the upcoming weeks.
“For us, when it comes to the Caribbean, every single client we’ve spoken with feels confident in their travel just as soon as we’ve had that touch-point conversation.”
