💙It's National Travel Advisor Day 💙

Never has there been a year this day was more deserved! Team JCo has been weathering the storm as fierce advocates for our clients, handling past reservations, and looking forward to when the world starts turning again. We have started to see glimmers of light and have begun booking for late summer and beyond. On top of rescheduling hundreds of trips, many of us have been working tirelessly to help feed children in need through our foundation. This all deserves to be celebrated 🎉

🌎 To honor our agents, if you have used a JCo Advisor in the past, we ask that you please leave a review! We have a Google page, as well as right here! Screen shots showing exactly where to do that will be in the comments.

🎁 Friday we will select a winners for a $25 gift card to a local business of your choice for you, and a $25 gift card for your advisor. Bonus points if you can share a story of how they helped you with a trip through this pandemic 😊 Please copy and paste your review below to be entered!

🌺 We humbly ask that if you've been a "Do it Youself" vacation planner in the past, you consider using a travel advisor in the future. ANY advisor as we are all in this together. You can still plan as much of it as you'd like!
One positive that has come out of this crisis for us, is the proof that sites like bookit and other online booking engines, do NOT care about their clients like we do! With JCo, you will be supporting small business, and also our foundation at The Heart of JCo. Not only do we put the time in to help children in need, the agency AND it's advisors are some of our biggest donors!

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT, through this, and over the years. We appreciate YOU! Only way out of this is #togetherandthrough

03/23/2020

All of our Norwegian Cruises that had to be cancelled have started to receive their "future cruise credit", otherwise known as "FCC" 😊. Our team is working with our clients to get them rebooked, so when this nightmare is over, they have something wonderful to look forward to.

If you have been a "Do-It-Yourself" vacation planner in the past, and you received your FCC today, I ask when you are ready that you please consider booking your credit with a travel agent? It's a way to support one of those affected most in this mess. It's a way to support small business without spending a dime!! You'll just be getting an added service. A service our clients can tell you was extremely important for their bookings when the world stopped turning. 🌎 You can still do as much, or as little, of the planning as you'd like!
Message us here, or email us at Kathy @jcotravel.com

Thank you for considering ❤️ We appreciate all the concern and messages of support for our JCo Family. We will get through this because we've operate a business guided by values, not dollars. We'll all be stronger for it!

Herculean efforts have come from professionals on so many fronts. We are so thankful for everyone working so hard to get people home, medical professionals who treat the sick and frontline staff who continue to stock the shelves.

Thank you for all the love, support, and understanding ♥️. Here’s to one week at a time!!!

Thank you for all the love, support, and understanding ♥️. Here’s to one week at a time!!!

The last few weeks have been sureal. JCo has laughed, reflected, looked for the silver linings. We've counted blessings and found ways to lighten the burden of those around us. I'd be lying though if I didn't say I've spent way too much time worrying. About the business I've sacrificed (more than I care to admit) for, my family's future, and our team's families' futures.

Coronavirus is here and the impact has already been a devastating blow to our small travel agency. The economic crush this has caused our industry has been monumental. The largest global travel interruption since 9/11.

Selling travel, managing our agency, is my full time job. It's not a side hustle. This is how I provide for my family. JCo is what provides for our 14 agents' families as well. It's also how we help take care of our communities.

We are focused on the long term. We know how we handle this crisis will strengthen our business when the storm has passed. But that doesn't stop the immediate bleeding.

Travel may be crippled right now but it will never be broken. The human spirit is wired for connection and exploration, it’s in our DNA. Seeing the world opens our eyes and our hearts. Once this is over, we’ll be here ready to assist you with planning all of your dream vacations and adventures.

If you’ve been a DIY vacation planner in the past, I ask that you’ll consider booking your next trip with JCo. There are no extra fees (same price as booking online, sometimes less) and you get the service and knowledge we are known for! In a crisis like this, we know our service KILLS that of Expedia or Costco Travel. This is when we shine brightest. We've been answering texts, calls, and emails round the clock for almost a month now.

When this is over, and you decide to go out to eat, hire professional services, or purchases any items we have locally, think about who takes care of the community please. Support small business whenever possible. That's the only way they can continue ❤️

Thank you for all your support, messages, texts and calls. We all appreciate them!! - Janelle 😊

Coronavirus Update - Southwest Airlines

COVID 19 update-

In light of new CDC advisories as well as airline, cruise line, hotel, and tour operator policies that continue to evolve, we want you to be confident that we are in contact with all of the above daily while the Coronavirus is still of concern. We will continue to keep you apprised of the situation as it pertains to your travel booked with us.

First and foremost, your health, safety and peace of mind is of utmost importance to JCo! We plan to be your travel advisors for all the years to come, and this is just one of the many times we hope our service makes life easier for you. Each one of us filter health, safety and peace of mind through different lenses, so your travel decisions must be made by you, and made by your determination on what is best for you and your family, along with advice from your family Dr if so needed.

I can tell you briefly what has been decided by Team JCo:

Nicole is currently cruising on Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas with her family for spring break.

Kristina is leaving for Mexico to do resort inspections tomorrow.

Janelle is hosting a group of 50 to Mexico in 10 days. Amy Jo is going along on that trip. Janelle is also also planning to take her family on a cruise for Spring Break. They will not be visiting any countries that have any advisories from the WHO or CDC.

Ali will also be traveling internationally for her family’s spring break in less than two weeks.

Loryl is currently in Barcelona with her family for a soccer clinic for her sons. They started their journey with a few nights in Paris to take in the sights.

Kathy and Nicole are going to be checking out the new Virgin Voyage ship, Scarlet Lady, on an inaugural cruise out of Miami next week.

We have no intention of making any changes to our travel plans. That being said, we are healthy humans. We do not have any immuno-suppressed conditions that would cause us concern.

Should the situation in the destinations where we are traveling change between now and time of travel, we will make modifications accordingly. Otherwise we plan to enjoy life, be smart, and continue to make incredible memories.

Here are our recommendations regarding your upcoming travel plans:

For travel through the end of March 2020:

Please contact your doctor if you are concerned about your vacation. See what professional advice she/he may have for you personally, then contact your JCo agent. Many cruise lines, airlines, tour operators, and hotels have put temporary policies in place that can help you make smart decisions for immediate travel plans.

For travel through the end of April 2020:

Please allow us, the airlines, cruise lines and hotels to work with those who are most immediately impacted. As the situation continues to evolve, new policies, procedures and information will be released.

As you are already aware, information regarding COVID-19 is very fluid. The information we have today could be very different next week or the next.

Please be assured, we are staying informed from all credible sources.

For travel through the end of May 2020 and beyond:

Please do not make any decisions today for travel in May. It's too far off. If we need to make modifications to your plans for May, we'll be able to make much more informed decisions within the next month.

Not only is your safety, health and peace of mind important to us, but your financial investment is as well. Cancelling or delaying your travel plans too early can result in penalty and cancellation fees. If the situation were to worsen, those could be waived by our suppliers.

However, if the situation were to improve, how sad it would be to have missed an incredible opportunity that you've planned and prepared for.

Here are things that you may not be seeing: People are traveling! We have no less than 50 clients traveling TODAY. We have clients all over Europe (except Italy), the Caribbean, Mexico, on cruises, in Disney World, Disneyland, and so many other destinations, right now. We've gotten nothing but great feedback from each of them over the weekend. In a world where it's very difficult to know what or whom to believe because we have so much information thrown our way, I still recommend that you seek out reputable sources for your information.

As of this morning, the CDC has Level 3 Warnings for the following countries:

China, Iran, South Korea, Italy.

Level 2 Advisory:

Japan

The REST OF THE WORLD has no current warnings or advisories.

CDC Map of Warnings and Advisories

Here is the CDC’s website so you can monitor yourself if you’d like. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

Should everyone travel to the rest of the world right now? NO.

If you are elderly, immunosuppressed, or have ongoing illnesses, you should be contacting your Dr, who will likely advise against cruising, and could be a case by case basis for other types of travel. If worrying while traveling is going to ruin your long-awaited trip, then that could be a no as well.

Should you take every health and safety precaution when traveling? ABSOLUTELY. And you should continue to do so, long after the word "Corona" is out of our vocabulary (unless it's the beer you're enjoying on the beach).

If you have any questions, please ask. Don't panic. Don't believe everything you see and hear. However, seek out the credible resources in order to make your best decisions in the coming months.

And, pray for those who are affected by this situation. Wash your hands frequently. Travel smart.

Here are some links for just a sampling of how some of the travel industry is handling the Corona Virus:

We are here for YOU! We are in your corner always, and are available to do our best as we work though these uncertain times together. If we need to cancel, postpone, or reschedule your travel, please know we will go above and beyond to advocate on your behalf, and make it as painless for you as possible.

Thank you for continuing to allow JCo to be a part of your creating priceless memories!

Your Travel Professionals,

For all those couples out there...
My family of 6 just returned from a 3 country European vacation planned by Kathy and had the experience of a lifetime. Kathy listened to all our interests and planned all our excursions, travel and transportation. We visited France for the Women's World cup and had fantastic seats just rows off the field, ventured to Italy and completed our trip in the UK. We couldn't have asked for a better trip and certainly couldn't have planned it as wonderful without Kathys assistance. We will certainly be seeking her out for our next adventures.
Umm this is a good deal!!! Come with me, I'm headed there in July!!!
Exciting chance to win...If we’ve worked together and you’d like a chance to win $50 to the restaurant of your choice... click on the post below and share our story (not on this post). Look forward to seeing all the wonderful comments:-)
