Saga Holidays provides all guests will a dedicated host they can speak to 24 hours a day, plus additional extras only its customers can enjoy such as dedicated VIP Club lounge at many hotels.
The operator offers a price promise, which means that should they ever reduce their prices or bring in a new special offer after a customer has booked, they will calculate the difference and automatically pass the saving back. Saga Holidays will also offer customers a flight home and a full refund in the event they don’t love their holiday after two days.
Chris Simmonds, Chief Executive Saga Holidays, said: “We’ve seen a spike in searches and bookings over recent weeks and our research shows that many of our customers are looking to travel for longer after so many months at home.
“Based on that we’ve developed a range of European holidays for travel from September 2021 and applied further savings for customers wanting to stay for three or four weeks. We also have a host of all-inclusive deals and our usual extras such as exclusive VIP Club lounges at excellent resorts that are only available to Saga customers, as well as dedicated reps available 24-hours a day.
All our holidays have up to £5m travel insurance with covid cover and as our customers would expect, their wellbeing is at the heart of what we do, so we’ve worked with our global partners to introduce covid-safe protocols and we require all guests to have had both vaccines well in advance of travel”.
The safety and wellbeing of customers is Saga’s number one priority and the tour operator requires all guests to have both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine at least 14-days ahead of travel. This is one of a number of measures Saga’s dedicated health and safety team have introduced as they work closely with their long-standing global partners on Covid-safe protocols. Saga is also monitoring the Covid-specific requirements of each destination and will communicate them with customers ahead of departure.
