Travel Notes

prepare for a student trip

Welcome back, travelers!

After a busy summer, we’re thrilled to welcome you back to our Bob Rogers Travel blog and kick off an incredible new season of posts that serve you, our clients and friends. So many of you are back in your beloved classrooms, band rooms and marching band fields and we couldn’t be more excited for you – we know it’s been a long time coming.

This new season means returning to many things – including travel! Hotels, attractions and venues are back in business all over the country, ready to welcome travelers and tourists whenever they arrive. We’ve been traveling throughout the last year just to make sure everything is in great shape for our student travelers and, we promise, destinations are definitely returning to normal.

Speaking of returning – we’re celebrating a return of our own! Our staff is finally back together under one roof after months of making travel magic from home and it’s amazing to be working alongside each other again. The last season changed all of us in so many ways, most of them for the better. So we don’t want to simply return to normal – we want to return to something BETTER.

During the last year, we stayed strong and committed to finding new ways of serving our wonderful client partners:

  • We designed new programs that protect and empower our clients.
  • We traveled A LOT so we understood exactly how hitting the road may be a little different (spoiler alert: it’s more normal than you think).
  • During the Spring and Summer of 2021, more than 3,000 students from 18 states traveled with us. And this coming travel season, we already have more than 48,000 travelers from 36 states planning to travel with us.
  • We dreamed up a few things we can’t even share yet…

We know that many of your programs are finding their footing again and things may not look “normal” just yet. But we believe that travel can help you return to better too. In the coming months, we’ll be sharing exciting posts about student travel and how it can be an integral part of rebuilding your performance program. We’ll be talking about new attractions in new destinations, Broadway’s return to the stage, actionable ways to recruit and retain students for your programs and much more.

You won’t want to miss a single post, so sign up below and get them delivered right into your inbox. It’s going to be an exciting year and we’re so happy to share it with you. See you back on the blog!
