TORONTO — Booking with Insight Vacations is a sure thing, with over 145 newly announced Definite Departures beginning this July and August 2021.
The tour operator is offering some of its most popular premium tours to Europe, the Eastern Mediterranean and Egypt, with countries like Italy, France and Iceland now welcoming Canadians. The news comes following the federal government’s announcement that starting July 5, quarantine restrictions will be lifted for fully-vaccinated Canadians and permanent residents, nor will they be required to complete the day 8 COVID-19 test.
“Our Insight Vacations team members are so excited to welcome back our Canadian guests. We are celebrating travel’s comeback by offering over 145+ Definite Departures beginning this July and August and for the rest of 2021, which gives clients the opportunity to reignite their wanderlust and fulfill their pent-up travel dreams within the next six months,” says Brad Ford, president of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold Canada. “Our loyal travel advisors can now help plan their clients’ well-deserved vacations with confidence, before the most in-demand departure dates are sold out.”
