A Message from Olga Placeres

Olga Placeres - President & Owner - Preferred Travel of Naples

Well, here we are, another summer has come and gone, we are well into fall and on the heels of the holidays. As we bask in the glory of the season, I urge you to take some time to reflect on gratitude, feel the magic, and let hope guide you. As we wrap up 2021 at Preferred Travel of Naples, we are optimistic that 2022 will provide continued improvement and we can all reconnect with the world. Please enjoy an update on what has been happening and what is to come at Preferred Travel.
First and foremost, I am happy to report that the team is traveling! I have always believed in firsthand knowledge as a valuable resource and a key part of what we offer our clients. These personal experiences help our advisors share with clients what to expect along the way. These travel opportunities have reinvigorated the team and reignited their fierce passion for travel. After this period of uncertainty, it is gratifying to see the joy they exude before, during, and after a travel experience. We’ve had advisors travel by air, land, and sea to places near and far, and they are excited to share it all with you.

As we look back on the summer, I am pleased to share how well received our events were over the past few months. Open houses in both offices and private presentations to small groups alike were a great success. We know there is a burning curiosity about travel again, and we want to be your source of information. As always, our events are informal and educational. Our focus is to serve as the connection between the traveler and the supplier, so that clients can build upon their travel dreams.

We always aim to inspire our clients, so we will continue planning enriching events throughout the year and are truly looking forward to the bright future ahead. I am thrilled to announce that a very special event will be held, once again, in February. We realize our clients anticipate this event annually, and we are thrilled to make it possible in 2022. We will share invitations and additional information in the coming weeks, so please keep an eye on your email.
This time of year brings people together, regardless of what holiday you celebrate, and there’s no better time than now to start thinking about your next great adventure. While we know not everyone is ready to travel just yet, these last few years have shown us the importance of collecting moments rather than things. Having spent so much time away from loved ones and from the joys of exploring the world, we encourage you to start dreaming (and maybe even planning) your next memorable journey. Be it a family trip to a dude ranch as a holiday gift or a romantic river cruise for a special celebration, we are here to guide you along the way.
Tour operators are touring, cruises are cruising, and our esteemed clients are ready to pack their bags once again. We have the resources available to make your travel experience as seamless and enjoyable as possible. I hope to see each of you at one, or all, of our future events. In the meantime, start dreaming and let us make those dreams come true! There is a vast world waiting to be explored, and “someday” is now.
As always, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your unwavering support and loyalty to Preferred Travel of Naples and our team.

Warm regards,

Olga Placeres
— President & Owner
