Should You Cancel Your USA Travel Plans Due To President Trump?
Will you scrap your plans?
New presidential-elect Donald Trump is set to shake things up in the White House, but how will it affect the tourism industry? Further to this, is it safe for Australians to visit?
The answer is: Of course.
It’ll be ‘business as usual’ says the Australian Federation of Travel Agents CEO Jayson Westbury.
“If anything Trump has always been very supportive of the tourism industry, he’s been very public about that,” Westbury said.
“We may see some ramping up of their international marketing efforts. He sees international tourism as the right sort of thing to be doing.”
It would be a smart idea to keep an eye out for specials and exchange rates as the election aftermath unfolds, as agents like Flight Centre are offering deals to encourage customers to visit the states despite the controversy.
