Happy New Year!

January 11, 2023

First, we want to take a moment to reflect on the amazing year that our clients had.


 In 2022, our clients entrusted T4T to plan:






We love helping our clients take amazing vacations and feel so grateful for all of our success and growth in 2022!


Now, onto the New Year…2023 is off to an incredible start and we love that our clients are coming back to us for more trips AND telling their friends about us. As a small business owner, this means the world to us, so thank you!


Deep into the planning stages of 2023, there are a few trends that we are seeing for this new and exciting year:


Bucket List Travel – the bigger the better…people are not waiting around anymore to take these once-in-a-lifetime trips


Multi-Generational Travel – more and more families from toddlers to grandparents are traveling together for some amazing experiences


Availability – Demand is exceptionally high right now, especially in top destinations, making availability a real concern when planning trips. We’ve seen issues with availability as far as 8 months out! 


Inflation – Sadly, like everything else, the cost to travel has increased significantly. From international flights to soaring hotel rates, the cost of a trip can add up very quickly.


The best advice that we can give to help curtail against the increased pricing and low availability is to plan, plan, plan. Not only is it important to plan for the travel portion (ahem, we may know someone who can help) but it is also important to start planning and saving for it from the financial aspect. 




Did you miss us? We know it’s been a bit since our last newsletter but between the huge demand increase and the holiday season, we decided you didn’t need yet another email from us. 

In an effort to declutter your inbox yet still stay in touch, we are moving to a monthly newsletter format so stay tuned for next month’s issue.


Insider Info:


Speaking to our point about high demand and low availability, is Japan.


Japan was one of the last countries to re-open to tourism, post-pandemic. It was done strategically and intentionally after being closed for over 2.5 years. And in October 2022, they started welcoming their first international visitors. 


Almost instantly, our suppliers saw such a surge in demand for Japan, that most of them have since issued a “Stop Sell” until things calm down. Now, March, April & May have always typically been Japan’s busiest months due to the cherry blossom season and the Golden week holiday in May, however, we have never seen anything like this before.


Hotel room availability and tours are almost non-existent at least until Fall 2023!


To say that travel is back, would be the understatement of the year
