Designer Travel has created a ‘We Stand Together’ video for its 100 consultants to send to their MPs to highlight the impact of Covid on the travel sector.

The Lancashire-based company, set up by former Co-operative Travel directors Amanda Matthews and Karen Pocock in 2008, has created a template letter for use in lobbying politicians.

It warns that the impact of the Covid crisis is being felt across all sectors of the outbound travel industry and calls for government representation to support and act for the trade.

Matthews said: “In these challenging times we set out to find a way to make it easier for our team to communicate the issues we face as an industry with their local MPs.

“We have produced this short film and have issued each of our 100-plus strong team a template letter for them to personalise to their local MP.

“If anyone wants to join in feel free, the more we can get our messages across the better for us all.”
