TALKING TO OUR PARTNERS
We continue to proactively communicate with our partner hotels, restauranters and others to understand the effect that the crisis is having on their businesses, their attitude and approach.
Moreover, we want to understand how they will take things forward.
SMALL, SPECIALISED & FLEXIBLE
Inspired ITALY is a small, specialised and flexible tour operator.
We have immediately cut our fixed costs to protect and maintain our business position. The directors and shareholders of Inspired ITALY are totally confident in the future of our business.
"We are very fortunate," says Tim Hudson. "We established Inspired ITALY as a 'life-style-business', where our focus was on a minimum fixed cost, the greatest flexibility and a built-in ability to react quickly. As a result, we are in a strong position and we can get through this with great confidence."
We plan to use our time to look forward, to imagine more experiences and to invest in the core of our business - your experience.
OPEN & TRANSPARENT
Above all, we are here, on the ground in Italy on the Umbria Tuscany borders. From our location, we will remain transparent, clear in our communications and accessible to all while we continue to consider all possibilities in as timely a manner as we possibly can.
We will keep you updated with notes via email and WhatsApp (+44 7532 464678) and short videos about life here in Italy as the crisis cycles through its various stages and back to some semblance of normality.
