President's Message - December 2020

Post date: Author:

On behalf of my family and our staff, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, safe, happy New Year!

Despite what 2020 has thrown at everyone and what we have all had to endure in one way or another, we still have much to be thankful for. The Christmas season, while different this year, is upon us and perhaps this year it is even more special than years past. Whether or not you are able to share in person this time with your family, let your thoughts remind you of the blessings of family life, this peaceful country we call home, its unlimited opportunities and the countless ways we are blessed each day.

We have been working very hard these past months not only to look after the hundreds of clients whose travel plans were disrupted this year, but also in planning exciting new programs for 2021 and 2022. We continue each week to add new journeys to our website, so check in with us often, then go ahead and book your next dream vacation.

We’re very excited to announce the launch of our 2022 Oberammergau Passion Play series of tours and cruises. As you may know, the 2020 series was postponed to 2022 and we are now ready to accept bookings. Eight delightful European itineraries feature twenty-five departures including the Holy Land, the Swiss Alps, Croatian Adventure, Danube and Rhine river cruises, Germany, Italy and the Heart of Europe. All departures feature the famous and historic Passion Play in the charming town of Oberammergau, Germany. The play is a major highlight of each journey.  Visit here for complete details.

Many of our travellers who were confirmed on our 2020 Oberammergau tours simply transferred their booking to the 2022 journeys. Our Oberammergau program is already 50% sold out, with some tours having very limited space.

Our “Book with Confidence” policy is in place for most group programs departing prior to December 31, 2021, meaning your deposit is fully refundable up to 95 days prior to departure. Be sure to ask our Sales Specialists for details.

On the top of our minds, at Craig Travel, is providing for your health and safety. To this end, we continue to work with our service providers around the world to provide a safe travel environment. Smaller group sizes, more space on coaches, and various safety measures will be features of our journeys in 2021. Airlines are working to provide more personal space, healthy cabins with thorough cleaning and enhanced air filtration on all flights.

Thank you for your incredible support during this trying year. We are grateful for your patronage and we look forward to sharing many safe and thrilling adventures in 2021, 2022 and beyond! Wishing you and yours a safe, healthy, joyous year.

Robert Craig,
