COVID-19 Update: Trip Merchant has been providing consistent updates as it relates to COVID-19. For the most current updates, please visit your RTAM travel site by clicking HERE. Health and safety of Trip Merchant’s travelers is their number one concern. While they understand the seriousness of COVID-19, eventually we will be able to travel again. It is not a matter of IF we will, but more so WHEN and HOW, we will travel going forward. They recognize that there is hesitation when it comes to booking travel at the moment and in the meantime, they are working behind the scenes to provide great opportunities and deals for future travel experiences. Also, on the RTAM travel site, and through your RTAM Travel Newsletter, they are currently showcasing travel inspiration through the form of travel tips & news and videos – Dream Now, Travel Later. At this time reflecting on past travel experiences and dreaming of all the destinations you’d like to explore is an excellent exercise, until the time comes to see the world again.
