WELCOME BACK GREETINGS TO ALL! Boy, have we missed all of you (again!).
I'm gonna let Ralph have my "Mary's Corner" again this time since he wants to bring everyone up to date as to what has been happening at Travel Time Tours and what you need to know as we go forward. It's ALL very good information.
THE CDC ALLOWED US TO LIFT our motorcoach MASK MANDATE in late April, but as of August 1, 2022, masks/face coverings will be required while on the motorcoach. This policy will remain in effect until further notice. Please bring extras along. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. And don't forget to always carry a COPY of your proof of your COVID vaccination . . . . you never know when/where they may be required.
OFFICE HOURS: As most of you know our temporary hours (since last year) will remain Mon-Fri 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. If you call before or after these hours simply leave us a message and we will get back to you right away . . . . . . even over the weekend.
VACCINATIONS: If you traveled with us last year we already have your Proof of Vaccination on file. Although we STRONGLY recommend getting the booster dose, you are not required to show us proof of that. For the rest of you (new travelers), we recommend you send in your Proof of Vaccination at this time, via mail, email or even fax. Then, when you're ready to travel with us you'll be all set. Thank you.
NO MORE OVERNIGHTERS AT THE RIVERSIDE HOTEL IN LAUGHLIN: Yes, we are having to change locations this year (to the Edgewater Hotel Resort & Casino . . . on the river) because the Riverside did away with it's group pricing & all meal vouchers! Sorry, but their loss.
TTT QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER: We plan to publish just one more PRINTED newsletter, but after that everything will be delivered to you via your email address. If you don't have one yet, they are FREE at yahoo.com, gmail.com, verizon.net, etc., etc., etc. If that's not feasible, consider using your son's or daughter's email address and they can share our tour information with you. And for those of you who paid your membership dues through Dec22 you have a $5.00 credit on file...........or simply request a refund.
BREAKFASTS AT HOTELS: Fewer breakfast are being offered at our lodging sites these days, but hopefully that will improve as we move further and further away from the virus. Currently, they are all over the map: some properties offer NO breakfast, some are offering a "Grab 'n Go" light breakfast, while others, believe it or not, are still providing us with a "full breakfast buffet." Go figure. Just a sign of the times, I'm afraid.
GROUP TRAVEL CANCELLATION & INTERRUPTION INSURANCE: Yes, still available and still at lower prices than back in 2019!!! Refer to our detailed Trip Flyers for per person cost or simply call our office for more details.
WE ARE BACK: And we’re excited about seeing all of you again; together we’ll be able enjoy those adventures to some of our country’s most beautiful areas. These last two years have been a challenge for all of us, and the travel industry, as you well know, has suffered plenty. And now, after nearly 46 years TTT is having to "start-up" a second time within the last year alone. And do I believe some vendors are taking advantage of all of us? Without a doubt: increased airfares, "resort fees," parking fee for our buses now at some properties, price hikes, limited breakfasts, limited hours of operation, limited staffing . . . . and on and on. But that's okay, we'll all get through it. Again, thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we stumble just a bit here and there. But we're always here . . . . FOR YOU!!! ~ Ralph Andrews
