“We will be the last”

AMSTERDAM ♦ At the earliest in winter, and perhaps only next spring: then air tourism will start again.  That is what Steven van der Heijden thinks, the CEO of travel organization Corendon.  A seasoned professional with thirty years of experience, the Dutchman has a strong vision for the restart of this severely affected industry.

The weekend trips by plane, for example.”  (photo Corendon)

♦ How’s Corendon doing in these unreal times?

Not good, huh.  This is the case for everyone in our sector.  Whoever claims otherwise does not speak the truth.  We are hit very hard.  Our turnover amounts to approximately 600 million euros.

will we be able to travel again this year ?! 2

If we don’t start up before October 31st, we will lose seventy to eighty percent.  That is enormous.  A significant number of our employees have hibernated.  Another part is working hard on exit scenarios.  We should be happy to work in a country that financially supports its companies (Netherlands, ed.).  We also depend on that support today.

♦ The Belgian government’s exit strategy hardly mentions the restart of the travel industry. Were you disappointed?

The Belgian government’s exit strategy hardly mentions the restart of the travel industry.  Were you disappointed?  Be glad that your country already has a strategy on paper.  The Dutch government is going from press conference to press conference.  (laughs) I would have liked to hear a little more about our industry, but I understand that too.  Let’s be realistic: we may be the last activity in the reboot.

♦ How do you see that restart?

This will take place in two phases.  First local travel, especially in your own country, then international travel.  I only see the latter getting underway in winter, or maybe even next spring.  We actually depend on three factors.  One: what does the country of origin say?  Two: what does the country of destination say?  Belgium and the Netherlands have no answers ready yet three: do people want to travel again?  those questions.

♦ What do you think?

it will take time before people go on big journeys again. Initially, a majority will opt for a holiday close by., preferably with your own car.

Will we be able to travel again this year ?! 4

We rely on two main target groups for our package tours.  One: the families with children who travel in the summer months.  I see them traveling again quite quickly, because they want to go away with the children anyway.  Two: the so-called empty nesters, the people like children who often travel in the low season.  They may have a little more fear.  They are often over sixty years old, so they belong to the risk groups.

♦ Can you take away that fear?

We do not have full control over this, but we try to do that by taking measures.  We cannot guarantee a meter and a half in an airplane.

Will we be able to travel again this year ?! 5

Otherwise, only twenty percent of the seats are occupied.  We will foresee other measures.  A mouth mask for example.  But I especially expect a lot from the so-called rapid tests.  Then we know in advance who is healthy and who is not.  That will be someone’s entrance ticket.

” We cannot guarantee a meter and a half in an airplane.Otherwise, only 20% of the seats are occupied.”

♦ Are there still people making reservations today ?

That number is negligibly small.  A few thousand.  That is barely two percent of and, the normal booking volume.  There are people who want to spend their voucher.

Will we be able to travel again this year ?! 6

If you see your trip canceled, we will give you a voucher.  We are currently making the summer program for next year bookable so that they can already choose.  This year has been lost, but I think that next year will return to normal, partly because of all those folders in circulation.  Moreover, many people yearn for holidays,

♦ Will travel become more expensive after this crisis ?

The cost structure will be different.  Hotels will become cheaper, because there will be less demand.  The fuel is also cheaper, which means that flying can be done cheaper.

Will we be able to travel again this year ?! 7

At the same time, the costs for the measures can be passed on.  For example, the tests.  It is difficult to estimate that.  But I am not pessimistic.  It will mainly be the shareholders who will bear the losses of the travel organizations.

♦ Can this also have positive consequences ?

(blows) You can.  Every crisis can have positive consequences.  We may take a significant step towards sustainable aviation.  Traveling will also be more hygienic, because of all those measures.  And I can imagine some excesses disappearing.  The weekends with the plane are another example.  But I especially hope that we can go on holiday again soon, as before.

In 2018, 1,235 billion people visited a country other than their own, according to the World Tourism Organization.

Whether you’re going to London or Kathmandu, Thailand or the United States, to the mountains of Pakistan or the Colombian jungle or another but my travel tips will be useful wherever you go on this incredible planet. Here are my 7 best travel tips for a successful road trip abroad.

1.Book your plane ticket in advance, but not too early

In general, the best time to book airline tickets is 1 to 3 months before departure. Do not book a year in advance or at the last second, the prices will not necessarily be cheaper and you will have no flexibility. Airline fares are constantly changing and there is no quick fix to get the best price guaranteed. You can easily check prices by month, which can help you decide which day of a month to have the cheapest flights.

2. Traveling off season if possible

One of the most true and proven tips for international travel is that you should enjoy off-season prices. Seriously some of the world’s most famous cities may seem completely different in the off season. The museums will be deserted, the streets will be inhabited by locals and not by tourists and the prices will be much more reasonable. Mid seasons are great times to travel because you will avoid the crowds of tourists and enjoy the weather. This is my favorite time to travel.

3. Make copies of your papers

A nightmare scenario for travelers is the loss of a passport. Nobody wants that. That said, it can happen and having copies of your passport and other important documents will really help you get by until you have a replacement passport. An expert traveler has this mentality: “hope for the best, prepare for the worst”. You must also leave a copy of your passport at home or at someone you trust.

4. Traveling light

A classic mistake is to overload. Traveling with 3 pairs of shoes, a makeup bag that weighs 4 pounds, 3 or 4 jackets, 15 t-shirts, 5 different cameras and more than one large backpack is not necessary. First, when packing, take the stack of clothes you think you need and divide the number in half. Then divide it again in half. Rather than taking a few bad items, invest in versatile equipment and clothing that adapts to different climates. Over time, you will only carry the bare necessities and you will be much happier when your bag is of a comfortable weight. If you do not use what you want to bring at least once a week, then it does not belong in your luggage. Here is what you need: A microfiber towel They are not always provided and / or have a hygiene that leaves something to be desired. Microfiber towels absorb more, dry faster and are lighter than a classic towel. For travelers, they are one of the most useful items they can have in their bag. Synthetic clothes Synthetic garments are much more durable and much easier to wash and dry than cotton garments. Opt for clothes that do not need to be ironed either. Good shoes Apart from your backpack, your shoes may be the most useful piece of equipment you have. Ideally, you should travel with versatile and lightweight shoes that are suitable for both urban walking and hiking. That said, avoid carrying several pairs of shoes. Just take a pair that covers all your needs according to your destination. A way or rain jacket When the sky is overcast and the rain falls, we are happy to have a kway. Unless you are traveling in the desert or in another dry place, it will rain at some point during a trip. An external backup battery In developing countries, power cuts are sudden and frequent. It is therefore necessary to provide a backup battery.

5. Learn the basics of the local language

Try to learn at least some basic words of the language spoken in the country where you are traveling. Locals really appreciate that you make an effort to learn their language. Knowing the local languages also has huge benefits for you. If you can count in the local language, you are less likely to be ripped off. And it is much easier to haggle and ask for advice in the local language too.

6. Speak with the inhabitants

Too often, there is a gap between tourists and locals. Certainly, all travelers want an authentic travel experience, and connecting with locals is a great way to make the most of your travels. Get out of the phone addiction and get back to the real purpose of the trip: meet people and have your mind enriched with experiences. Do not let your only interaction with locals be limited to ordering food at a restaurant or buying souvenirs at a store. Take the time to stop and talk with locals. Ask questions about their reality. Find out what they like to eat and where. Find out what they like to do in the place where they live. Couch surfing is an epic way to meet the locals.

7. Doing couch surfing

One of my favorite ways to meet locals and save money at the same time is to use couch surfing. If you really want to experience life with a local, I can not recommend you better. You can make lifelong friends through the platform and gain a perspective you would never have considered otherwise. On the other hand, as the hosts are kind enough to welcome you for free, do not come empty handed. In any case, it is important to learn about its destination upstream. The more you know about a place, the more you can enjoy it and enjoy it.

1 Canada

Its quality of life, considered one of the best in the world, brings it to the tenth place in the ranking. For the rest, it’s no surprise: vast spaces, beautiful landscapes, sense of welcome Canada have almost no fault for the traveler.

2 Ireland

Okay, there is not necessarily a big sun from evening to morning. OK, you need to have a change of clothes just in case. But maybe that’s why Ireland is so popular with those who travel solo between two walks on deserted beaches and green hills, we take refuge in pubs. The Irish are considered nice and they have the sense of celebration and hospitality. And the country is safe.

3 Thailand

Islands, dream beaches, temples, a natural heritage still preserve. The ancient kingdom of Siam is one of the most visited countries in the world. It is on the criteria of adventure tourism forest treks, water sports that it stands out the most.

4 Brazil

The giant of South America – by its size and its population – has long been neglected by tourists. They discover little by little that Brazil is not only the carnival of Rio and its excesses. The country enjoys an ever-increasing popularity among tourists in need of adventure, a criterion for which it is world number. From the beaches of the Atlantic to the Amazon rainforest, there is a choice.

5 Greece

Not yet out of the crisis, the country continues to seduce by its cultural heritage – difficult to make richer! – its landscapes and its climate. The solo traveler never gets bored. Without the language barrier, the country would probably be even higher in the rankings.

6 Portugal

It is the trendy tourist destination in Europe. Ten million tourists in 2015 is seven times less than its Spanish neighbor, but it is 10% more than the year before. Solo travelers will discover a beautiful architectural heritage, beaches not yet crowded, beautiful golf courses Other advantages, and not least Portugal is safe and remains very cheap.

7 Australia

The country is at the top of all rankings, for years, for its quality of life. And Melbourne invariably wins the world’s most enjoyable city prize. This is enough to make the lonely traveler forget his immense desolate spaces where he will not meet many people of this can also be an asset.

8 New Zealand

Okay, it’s very far. But it’s THE destination that goes up. 3.5 million tourists visited in 2016, 12% more than the previous year. But it’s still far from the crowd. It is safe, stable, beautiful, and very popular with those seeking adventure tourism. A little raft in New Zealand, it’s tempting, right?

9 Italy

Southern Europe really seduces lonely travelers. Heritage, culture, landscapes, gastronomy, climate of Italy there are 50 million visitors in 2015, the fifth largest tourist destination in the world – has serious assets. Voters blame the country for its political instability. But the one-day traveler, solo or not, will not be affected.

10 Spain

The voters are unanimous: the Spaniards are nice. On this criterion, they are even the number 1 in the world. That may be the difference. Add a rich cultural heritage, beautiful landscapes, and sunshine almost all year and everything to make it the perfect destination. Go alone, you will not stay long. The trouble is that it knows Spain attracted 68 million tourists in 2015, making it the third most popular destination in the world.
