Have you been working from home and using Zoom to connect with colleagues and clients?
Apparantly Zoom fatigue is now a thing with users feeling pressure to have a decent backdrop, decent clothes and ‘always on’ during meetings all making for a very pressurised experience.
It’s one of the many issues those coping with the lockdown have had to contend with which probably explains another new trend….
Holiday bookings for 2021 are said to be going through the roof.
Economies around the world are tentatively making moves to re-open after the pandemic and many who have enjoyed travelling to the sun throughout their lives are dreaming of a sun holiday to get them through the lockdown in the hope some form of normality or freedom to travel will be greenlighted next year.
This is the current Department of Foreign Affairs travel advice:
Avoid non-essential travel until further notice:
‘The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade advises against all non-essential travel overseas until further notice. This includes Great Britain but does not apply to Northern Ireland. It also includes all travel by cruise ship.’
That being said bookings for 2021 are believed to be brisk according to the Irish Travel Agents Association.
Like all businesses travel agents are trying to see how their businesses will operate in a post Covid-19 lockdown world.
One travel group has introduced a new initiative aimed at helping you make your decision about holiers next year.
Tour America and Cruise Holidays are introducing Zoom consultations for those interested in travel bookings.
Clever idea for them and their clients.
The news was revealed by CEO and founder Mary McKenna.
Away with you if you fancy making that plan for a getaway!
