RB Collection Travel Talk: Episode 4 - LIVE Q&A with Nathan & Oliver

RB's Travel at Home Series: Oman
We escaped the cold and explore the culturally rich Sultanate of Oman. A far cry from the likes of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Oman has retained its authentic Arabian charm whilst blending world-class hotels and resorts to provide a diverse and exciting destination to visit.
Oliver found this out for himself when he visited last year and was joined by our special guest to present the varied experiences available, from driving through the scenic mountain ranges to wondering the bustling souks and relaxing along the stunning beaches. As well as the capital city of Muscat we also explored the lesser-known area of Salalah and head up into the Hajar Mountains.
RB's Travel at Home Series
During 2020 we held a number of online talkts, presentations and webinars. Destinations ranged from India to Vietnam and Sri Lanka.
You can now watch these again via our YouTube channel here.
We hope to plan more online events, follow us on Facebook here or sign up to our email newsletter via our home page to keep up to date with our latest news.
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?
RB Collection Travel Talk: Episode 1
