Armchiar Explorer

Sit back, relax and grab a bowl of popcorn. This week’s armchair inspiration comes in many forms, from movies that ignite wanderlust and destinations that make you crave a pint to romantic locales that are standing by to sweep you off your feet.


Wherever you end up traveling once the world reopens for exploration, it’s important to know the details of every segment of your vacation. Travel insurance, cruise and airline tickets, car rental agreements — they all come with fine print that can make or break your journey. As travel professionals, we understand those details so you don’t have to. And believe us — when the COVID-19 shutdown first kicked off, stranding travelers far and wide, knowing that fine print helped us assist our clients quickly and efficiently.
Enjoy a moment of inspiration with this new video titled “Dreaming Doesn’t Stop” from our good partners at Globus Family of Brands. And remember — Dream Now, Travel Later!

Real stories on how travel advisors aided their clients during the outbreak and disruption of COVID-19.


“Our son Matt left for Croatia last August. [Our travel advisor] Hilary made all the arrangements for him to fly as a Rotarian Foreign Exchange student. Three weeks ago, Matt’s appendix burst, and he was hospitalized just as the coronavirus hit in Croatia. He spent eight days in the hospital and then one week recovering with his host family. Hilary worked tirelessly to get Matt on a flight home to Utah. We thought we had found a flight only to find it was cancelled the day of his expected return. Hilary again went to work for us to find a second flight out of Croatia. Finally, on April 8, he flew out of Croatia, to Frankfurt, to Amsterdam, Atlanta and finally Salt Lake City. A flight total of over 48 hours. We are elated, and beyond grateful for her sincere and compassionate efforts in bringing our son home. I am sure you can imagine the stress we felt from not being able to personally help our son. It was a frightening and difficult time for our family. And, thanks to Hilary, we are back together as a family. She is a true professional!”
