Leading LGBTQ+ travel company Vacaya has seen record-breaking bookings for its trips since the U.S. election and vaccination news turned the tide on travelers’ perspectives. That being said, its travel packages are exactly what we need to start our post-pandemic life on the right track. “It’s so exciting the LGBTQ+ community is leading the way in bringing travel back,” says Vacaya CEO Randle Roper. “And during Pride Month, all of us here at Vacaya are so proud of the work we’ve done in leading that charge and advancing LGBTQIAPK unity. For so long, we’ve been segregated into our own tribes — only really coming together with any consistency during Pride month. With Vacaya’s mission to throw the doors of LGBTQ+ travel wide open to our entire community, we all get to unite regularly throughout the year as we travel the world together.”
“Vacaya continues to push the bounds of what’s possible, with nearly every cruise or resort adventure we do being a first in the world of LGBTQ+ travel,” adds Vacaya chief marketing officer Patrick Gunn. “From our takeover of P-town’s historic inns this month for our Summer Jamboree; our circumnavigation of Iceland; our Mexico Resort holiday over Halloween and Day of the Dead; and our New Orleans River Cruise, to our 2022 lineup of trips including our Caribbean Cruise, Seychelles Cruise, Costa Rica Resort, Greek Isles Cruise, and our Antarctica Cruise, Vacaya is resetting the bar for LGBTQ+ travel, fulfilling bucket list travel dreams trip after trip!”
