About First Mid Travel

An Update from Sheri

Sheri Rodebaugh

It’s been a long time since we have been able to get out and see the world but I am thinking positive for 2022!

The new travel brochures are now available and scheduled trips can also be seen on our Upcoming Trips page.  Most of these trips have been rescheduled from 2020 and 2021!  We are definitely seeing changes in the way group travel will be planned in the future, but First Mid Travel and the awesome tour companies that I am working with have the customer’s safety in mind while planning these tours. We are constantly monitoring the safety of traveling and will not hesitate to cancel or postpone any trip if we are not comfortable visiting a location.

I have been able to reschedule two cruises, Alaska and Canada/New England, for 2022 but I have been strongly advised that these cruises will fill up fast due to the previous cancellations and the number of Future Travel Credits that many will have.  So, if you are thinking about one of these cruises, it is highly recommended to sign up soon so that we can guarantee you a spot on the trip!

Many of the companies have had changes in their Travel Protection Plan also. These policies are still being offered but the pricing is based on age of traveler and cost of trip.  If you are interested in a tour, and are wanting to purchase this Protection but see on the flyer “Insurance is available for purchase”, feel free to call me and I will get the pricing for you.  Hopefully this issue will be short lived – once COVID-19 settles down and things start to get back to “normal”.  Kudos to the Tour Companies that have put in a lot of hard work and survived during these trying times. The past year has put a lot of unexpected hardships on the travel industry, so please be patient and understanding.  We are all working hard to get back to travel!

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns on the tours!
