A message from Hart Travel Partners on COVID-19

Our thoughts are with you and all of our travelers and friends during this challenging and unprecedented time, as the COVID-19 pandemic spreads.

The safety and security of our travelers always has been our top priority, and we worked diligently to ensure the safe return of our traveling groups earlier this month. We are in close contact with our partners, friends and colleagues around the world, who also are confronting this outbreak.

At Hart Travel Partners, we have built our business and our lives around international travel, and we miss it dearly. Normally at this time, we would be busy putting the final touches on so many trips about to depart to destinations around the world. We would be finalizing rooming lists, making last-minute itinerary adjustments, noting dietary requirements and excitedly wishing everyone “bon voyage.” Instead, we are “undoing” all the work that had been months and years in the making.

All of us are as saddened as our faculty leaders and students who are missing out on traveling this spring. Like you, for now, we are at home. We are helping our groups the best we can, we are spending time with our families, and we are dreaming of being able to resume traveling and exploring the world and other cultures. When that time comes, you and your students will be welcomed abroad with arms even more wide open than before! 

I have shared so many kind words and sentiments with many of our faculty leaders in recent days and weeks. It is genuinely uplifting to see us all working through this together, and I thank you for your understanding and your partnership. I truly believe that we are going to come out of this even better and stronger than we were before. And I can’t wait to see you and help you travel the world again soon.

Be safe,

Steve Hart
