Gosh, time flies. The year 2019 is over, and 2020 is here. Another year has come and gone! For those of you who booked a trip with As You Wish Luxury or Romance Travel last year, we appreciate your support! It’s the time of the year again for some much-needed reflection and introspection to set the right tone for the new year! We have been busy coming up with our goals for 2020, and we want to share the biggest ones with you.
The first goal we have for 2020 is to give locally to specific charities.
We love to give and support organizations. In 2018 we gave $1,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio. We’ve donated to Genesis House, Lorain County Chamber of Commerce, The Alzheimers Association, and others since we’ve been in business.
However, this year, we plan to give $1,000 to Neighborhood Alliance by donating $250 each quarter as a result of the bookings we receive from you! Also, we are offering a $1,000 Mexico Vacation stay at the Difference Makers Event on Friday, February 21, 2020, again this year as well. (And I’ve been told you will be able to participate in this giveaway, without having to be present. Ask Leadership Lorain County for the details.)
We give because there is much need in Lorain County, and these organizations work very hard to fulfill those needs. We are blessed to have such great, hard-working professionals that put faith in our travel services and that book with us. With your support, we want to use a portion of the money we make to give back to the community where we reside and do our part to help those in need.
The second goal we have for 2020 is to explore travel opportunities beyond the Caribbean.
From the data that we have received, we notice that a strong interest in being immersed in a travel experience and not just cookie-cutter experiences. So you will begin to see more emphasis placed on travel to Europe, River Cruises, and Bucket List (sporting event) travel. Here are all the services we provide, in case you didn’t know:
Every time we plan a trip for someone, we want to go on it. So we are going on our first European River Cruise this fall! We are so excited for this adventure!
The third goal we have for 2020 is become invaluable to our clients by using technology, video, newsletters, etc.
In 2020, As You Wish Luxury & Romance Travel will focus on creating custom itineraries so you can focus on your family and career, instead of wasting 30 hours or more researching and planning your trip. We realize that as a respected professional, you need to break away from your daily routine. Also, your time is valuable. So we plan to send short weekly e-news and newsletters that include video segments so that it is engaging content.
Also, we like to use technology as much as possible to make it easier for you to connect with us and your travel plans. We support you before, during, and after your trip. We always request the resort or hotel for additional amenities, acknowledgment of celebrations, or sometimes we ask for upgrades for our clients. Many times our requests are honored. This effort is the value we bring as a travel specialist to you!
There’s nothing like sharing your goals with a list of your virtual friends to make sure we stay accountable and work towards completing our goals!
