Agents ‘perfectly placed’ to help with Qld holidays: AFTA

Travel agents welcome QLD border opening

The Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) has welcomed Queensland’s decision to reopen its borders from 10 July



With travellers from every state except Victoria allowed to visit Queensland unrestricted from Friday week, new AFTA CEO Darren Rudd said the move was "a step in the right direction which strikes the right balance between the necessary caution and getting the economy restarted".


"If you’re planning a trip to Queensland or travelling within Queensland, you need to get the best advice about the many great deals on offer and how to make the most of your holiday," he remarked.


"Your local trusted travel agent is perfectly placed to help."


On Tuesday, the Queensland Government announced a "further and faster easing of restrictions across Queensland from 12 noon, Friday July 3, including a clear plan to manage our borders going forward".


Those who have travelled from Victoria will only be allowed into Queensland if they quarantine at a hotel for two weeks at their own expense, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.


Despite border restrictions and lingering concerns over coronavirus, the vast majority of Australians are planning a domestic holiday this year, a new survey has revealed.
