Coronavirus Travel Information

10.04.20 | Nathan

This are unprecedented times we find ourselves in and we would like to thank all our clients for their understanding whilst we deal with affected bookings. It is not exactly how we expected to celebrate our 35th year in business, but you can relax knowing you are in professional hands and we will continue to take care of you and your requirements.

Our retail area is closed to the public, but we are busy working behind the scenes. To do this as efficiently as possible we have adjusted our trading hours to 0900-1700hrs, Monday to Friday (closed weekends and bank holidays).

Thanks to everyone who have sent us words of support, you can join in on our Facebook page here: facebook.com/rbcollectionuk.

We have provided the below information to help put your mind at rest that you are in good hands. The whole industry is working with a hugely reduced work force and so the normal speeds at which tasks can be actioned are much slower than we would like. We are very grateful therefore for your patience.

Don’t worry, we will contact you…
If you have booked a holiday with us, you can relax knowing that you are in safe hands and we will contact you to discuss the options open to you. There is no need to contact us, we are working through departures in date order and will contact you as soon as we have an update for you.

We are currently working around 2-4 weeks ahead of departure and we thank you for your patience. The point at which we have an update can vary depending on airline or tour operator.

Balance payments
If you are due to make a payment to us for a future holiday, there is no need to contact us. We will contact you on or before the due date with an update. The date the balance is due to be paid will most likely be put back so we can wait further information regarding your holiday.

Consumer Advice
As a member of ABTA, we are following their advice regarding protecting consumer rights, supporting the industry and our business so we can best serve you in the future. If you have a holiday booked with us we kindly ask you read their consumer advice page here. This is updated on a regular basis. You can also access the FCO travel advice page here.

New bookings
We are open as usual for new bookings and so feel free to contact us via our normal channels. We will soon also be offering video call meetings so we can discuss new trips in more detail.

Travel inspired things to do at home
Our team have started to delve into their travel knowledge and specialisms and we will bring you fun, interactive and inspiring travel themed activities to keep you busy at home, for all ages! Keep an eye on our Facebook page for the latest posts or our blog here.

Join our NEW online events
We have started to arrange a numbe rof online webinas and Q&A’s with destination and holiday company specialsts. The first of these on India was a great success. Our next event is on 14th May with AMA Waterways, click here for more details.

Please stay home and stay safe, so that we can all once again enjoy travelling again in the future.

A message from Nathan, our Joint MD (20th March 2020)

A message from Rebecca on behalf of the team here at RB Collection…

 

Thank you for your kind words!

It has certainly been a challenging time, however we are very grateful to have an amazing team onboard to look after our clients. We would also like to thank our clients for their very kind words of support which have been coming in thick and fast, here is the latest email we received…

‘Nathan, Thanks again…I’ve thought from the very beginning of this, how businesses handle themselves during the situation will be their future, or not. Customers will be loyal to businesses, who are loyal & fair to them. We will reach the other side, though it may be different, & let’s hope better. Our family, have nothing but praise for all your efforts & that of your team. I know how hard it is to keep faith in business sometimes. Please do keep faith, you have great customer support.’
Mrs Jacques, April 2020.

 

Hi Rebecca,

During these difficult times with the Corona virus outbreak RB Collection travel have been exceptional in their service. I have always dealt with Rebecca who is delightful, as well as professional, knowledgeable & extremely helpful.
We have Recently returned from a Hurtigruten cruise to Norway booked with Rebecca’s help. We had an incredible time & have many wonderful pictures and of course memories!
I was somewhat anxious on our return  as I already  had two more trips booked, both to Amsterdam & Monaco to the James Bond World Premiere.
I needn’t have worried though as Rebecca & the team kept me fully informed. This was such a relief!
I just wanted to say a huge Thank-you to the team. Such integrity can be rare in business these days & it is so very appreciated.
To everyone there- very best wishes to you all & your families as we hit very difficult times. Take care of one another & stay safe.
Be reassured that in the future I will be back to book lots of adventures as well as recommending your business wholeheartedly.

Kindest Alison
