Social distancing inspires AAA to offer virtual travel opportunity
By AAA of Western and Central New York
In today’s day and age of social distancing, AAA Western and Central New York is taking steps to make sure our associates and members have a safe and enjoyable vacation-planning experience. AAA is pleased to announce that we now offer tele-travel appointments with our travel experts where travelers can learn more about various destinations and even book travel from the comfort of their home, office or any remote location thanks to video capabilities.
While in-person visits, telephone and email transactions are still available, video conferencing takes the vacation planning experience to a new level with complete social distancing enhanced with video, photos, itineraries, even closed captioning.
AAA’s new virtual travel agency, offering video visits, is the perfect way to connect with one of our expert travel consultants. We’ve trained a team of travel consultants to deliver the same in-person, reliable experience from AAA, but virtually.
Why should travelers book a virtual video visit? It’s socially safe, convenient and easy.
Traveling with others, no problem! Multiple parties can join in and be part of the video experience, too. We can accommodate as many people from as many separate locations as needed. It’s like one big vacation planning party!
Once travelers schedule a video conference at www.AAA.com, they will receive an email from AAA with a link to use from their laptop, computer device or smartphone.
With weekday, evening and Saturday appointments available, we’re sure that this new option will be popular with travelers who are dreaming of their next vacation.
AAA has seen a pent-up demand for travel, and with restrictions constantly changing, now is the time for travelers to rely on a trusted travel consultant to guide them through the process.
While summer road trips and travel within New York remain very popular, travelers are booking future trips to islands, on cruises and even to international destinations in 2021.
As upstate New York’s largest member services organization, AAA Western and Central New York provides more than 887,000 members with travel, insurance, financial and automotive-related services. Since its founding in 1900, AAA has been a leading advocate for the safety and security of all travelers. Visit AAA at www.AAA.com.
