Tallahassee Travel Companions Trip Trustees Facing Multiple Challenges Caused By COVID-19 Restrictions

Tallahassee, FL – Trip Trustees, a Florida-based startup that matches seniors with local, trusted travel assistants, is working hard to help clients during the ongoing pandemic. 

The newly formed company specializes in helping seniors travel worldwide, by providing a unique travel assistance service. Unfortunately, their business model has been decimated with the current restrictions because their target market of seniors have been advised not to leave their homes, and the travel industry is virtually closed for business across the world. 

“When we initially came up with the concept of the business, we were convinced that it was original, innovative, and would appeal to a large proportion of the community who wanted to enjoy traveling but also have the safety, security, and companionship of a seasoned travel assistant,” said Gino Fina, founder of Trip Trustees. 

But even the best planner in the world could never have anticipated the two main aspects of their business being effectively stopped in their tracks.

Trip Trustees travel assistants are sourced from just a handful of trusted, public service occupations such as registered nurses, paramedics, firefighters, and law enforcement officers. Given the current environment, these professions are extremely taxed and may not have the needed off-duty time to serve as a travel companion for seniors in need. 

One of the golden rules for any business is to plan ahead for any and every eventuality, but all of the planning in the world could not have foreseen the devastation the COVID-19 epidemic would dish out to certain industries, especially travel and tourism. 

“Rather than dwell on the predicament we find ourselves in, we are focusing all of our efforts on getting our current travelers back home safely and devising new marketing promotions and strategies for when the restrictions finally lift. We are in a solid financial situation and are confident that the market will bounce back relatively quickly once life returns to normal,” said Fina.
