Travel advisor Rob Karp, founder of the agency MilesAhead, has launched a new endeavor, Travel Solutions USA. In coordination with global security firm T&M Protection Resources, Travel Solutions USA will produce a biweekly Global Travel Intelligence Briefing to help companies navigate the coronavirus crisis.
The briefing will include hospitality insights and industry data, including topics like travel restrictions, advisories and security practices. It is designed for a variety of hospitality businesses, including travel agencies, tour operators and hoteliers.
"Amid Covid-19, our team noticed an immediate need for collective information across the travel and hospitality industry, which led us to join forces with T&M to create a resource for hospitality leaders and businesses across the globe," Karp said.
The service costs $199 a month, with a one-month commitment.
A portion of sales will be donated to the Travel Cares Foundation, an organization Karp created during the coronavirus crisis dedicated to supporting hospitality businesses around the world.
"At the same time, frankly, it helps the little guy like me, who's trying to figure out a way beyond travel to do OK during this time," Karp said.
