Traditionally November is the month of Gratitude

2020 has been an undeniably tough year. At Travel Counsellors we’re proud of our people-first culture, and as always, we’re here to support our community through thick and thin. Look at what our TCs are most grateful for...

Being part of a community who put people first and who do what is right by the customer is reassuring. And then when we have had a year like we have had, to have the right support structure is everything. To know that you have a franchisor who has your back and who will work behind the scenes to navigate the way is truly important.

All that has happened in 2020 has caused us to relook at our values, priorities and for many of us we so much more grateful for everything that we have in terms of people, community, health…

We asked our TCs what they were most thankful about during the Covid-19 Pandemic and this is what they had to say.

"The COVID 19 pandemic has changed the way we live and work. It may have even affected those who already work from home and who are juggling life to a whole new meaning. To be apart of such an amazing team has made this whole ordeal manageable. The support within the Travel Counsellors family is incredible. The support from HQ in the UK to here in South Africa. There isn’t a problem too big or too small and there is always someone who cares to assist you. My immediate TC tribe are a mere WhatsApp or call away for advice and help. I am so grateful for each person. I could not be prouder than I am right now to call myself a Travel Counsellor" says Lyndill Cilliers

"In this uncertain time, it has been great to have Travel Counsellors support me. From head office staff to colleagues. Having our Operations team keeping us up to date, to creating an airline hub for us. This 020 has been an undeniably tough year. At Travel Counsellors we’re proud of our people-first culture, and as always, we’re here to support our community through thick and thin has made understanding the various airlines options and rules so much easier. This has helped me to then relay this onto my clients. On days when I hit lows, I was never alone! TC had my back! Thank you…"says Lynde Opperman
