RB's Travel Talk - Live Episode 4: Gran Canaria is back (just in time for some winter-sun!)
Postponed – new date to be confirmed…
Whether you want to go on holiday right now or not, join us as we escape virtually to the island of Gran Canaria for a winter-warmer!
Our 4th live Travel Talk will welcome our good friend Katerina from Gran Canaria tourism to showcase what the island has to offer for luxury winter-sun escapes. The Canary Islands are now on the UK governments green-light travel corridor list which is great news for those wanting to escape the cold. We will learn about what Gran Canaria can offer, including details of areas away from the main resorts including mountainous regions and its historic capital.
RB's Travel Talk - Episode 3: Italy without the Crowds...
Our 3rd Travel Talk was a live discussion about what it is like to visit Italy right now.
We heard from Italian experts as well as colleagues in the country itself.
Often seen as a country which suffers from over-tourism, recent events have meant the crowds have dispersed leaving the Italian greats of Venice, Rome & Florence less busy and offering a more relaxed, pleasant holiday experience.
RB's Travel Talk - Episode 2: The New Normal
Thursday 6th August 2020, 6pm
Our 2nd Travel Talk episode will be a live discussion about the ‘new normal’ in the world of holidays.
Oliver interviewed travel industry experts about their own personal experience having recently traveled abroad, as well as from the holiday organisations responsible for your safety and enjoyment whilst away.
OLIVER, RB COLLECTION
Our Joint MD, Oliver, will be interviewing our guests to get to the bottom of the ‘new normal’. Oliver flew during lockdown himself back to Barcelona and along with Nathan has been working hard to re-arrange many holidays. It will be interesting to gather questions and quiz our guests on the new holiday experience.
CHRIS WRIGHT, SUNVIL
As MD at Sunvil, there isn’t anything about operating holidays and charter flights that Chris doesn’t know. Sunvil were in fact the first UK holiday company to fly to Corfu in the 1970’s and we look forward to hearing from Chris about the current status of holiday operations, and the preparations put in place around Greece to welcome visitors back.
CARLA JESUS MIRANDA, REID’S PALACE, MADEIRA
Carla works in Madeira as Senior Sales Manager at the iconic Reid’s Palace, a favourite of our clients which has just re-opened. Most do not realise, Madeira is on the ‘can visit’ list and Carla will talk us through specific measures being put in place at the hotel to make sure your stay is safe and enjoyable.
MARY ANN PICKFORD, TTG
Mary Ann works at one of the travel industry’s leading trade publications, TTG (Travel Trade Gazette) and recently flew to the island of Corfu as one of the first visitors from the UK since lockdown. We will hear about Mary Ann’s travel experience from the flight to arrival, hotel and resort – what is it like to go on holiday right now?
