Travel Central’s Advisors are Clients Most Valuable Advocate During the COVID-19 Crisis

[Metairie, LA] – [April 29, 2020] – For Travel Central, business as usual has taken on a different focus for the past few months. With the outbreak of COVID-19, or Coronavirus, Travel Central advisors are their clients most valuable advocate as they have been working 24/7 to bring clients who were traveling home to their families and helping those with future plans rebook or cancel their plans.


These efforts were taken to a whole new level when the U.S. Department of State issued a Level 4 “Do Not Travel”, Return Home, Advisory on March 19 Travel Central  advisors worked overnight to contact all their clients abroad.  They informed them of the new advisory and worked to get them home as quickly as possible as flights were quickly filling or cancelling.  


 “Our advisors have always shown incredible dedication to their clients, and in the midst of this outbreak they have stepped up in every way. Having a team that is committed to their clients’ health and well-being is paramount in a situation like this, and we were all glad to be able to assist our clients who are also our friends.” - Melinda Bourgeois Agency Owner


Throughout this outbreak, the necessity of a travel advisor has never been more apparent. Advisors at Travel Central have also been working with travel industry partners to ensure their clients receive refunds or future travel credits in the wake of trip postponements and cancellations.


Travel Central is still open but our advisors are all working remotely, still available to help with all your travel needs in these difficult times. Opening hours are Monday – Friday 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM CST.
