AAA Travel Brings Winter 2021 Travel Show into Washington Homes

Free, Live Virtual Presentations Explore The Future Of Travel In 2021 And Beyond

Bellevue, Wash. – AAA’s Winter 2021 Virtual Travel Show gives Washington consumers a front row seat to the travel industry’s future while inside the comfort and safety of their homes. In a series of virtual presentations, available from January 12 through February 28, AAA travel experts and representatives from top excursion and cruise line companies educate attendees about what to expect when it is once again safe to travel

“Our winter cruise shows are always popular events,” said AAA Director of Travel Products, Lisa Anciaux. “This year, the best cruise and travel companies in the industry are joining us to ensure a unique experience which proves as fun, educational and exciting as any traditional in-person event.”

Anciaux opens the show, Tuesday, January 12 (10:00 a.m. and 4 p.m.), with a presentation entitled the “New WAVE of Cruising,” offering the most up to date insights on cruising and the changes travelers can expect to see in the future of cruising from small to large ships.

Each 30-minute presentation concludes with a question and answer period. Alongside AAA’s own travel experts, representatives from 19 cruise lines and 4 travel companies booking tours by rail and land will share information about ship amenities, travel routes and customized journeys. Those concerned about booking trips they might later cancel can learn how to protect themselves from Allianz Travel Insurance.

All virtual attendees will receive up to $100 in extra onboard credits, up to $100 savings per vacation package from featured land vendors plus special offers from featured vendors and an additional 15% off our already low member & non-member prices at any AAA store in Washington or North Idaho.
