Plans for new websites promoting discounts for travel companies has been launched. “I don’t think there is a better way to relax and learn about the world we all inhabit than to travel to foreign countries,” explains Jesse Slome, who is director of several insurance trade organizations.
Slome notes that he now makes it a point to take two foreign trips a year. “There is so much to experience and learn,” Slome who heads the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance points out. “We all tend to believe we have the answer for everything and the right way to deal with every matter but one can learn so much from others and then there’s the food.”
The inveterate world explorer travels both independently as well as with tour groups. “When you are visiting a foreign country, it’s so much easier to go with someone who knows their way around,” Slome points out. “I have found that contrary to what people perceive, you’ll actually see more and that’s important especially when you have a short period of time for your visit.”
For the past decade, Slome has traveled with multiple tour companies including Trafalgar, Globus, Brendan but he notes that two companies continually exceed his expectations. “I especially like Overseas Adventure Travel, a Boston-based company that specializes in more active tours for smaller groups,” Slome notes. The company limits tour sizes to 16 persons.
The first of a planned series of travel websites promotes Overseas Adventure Travel discounts, especially a referral savings available for first time travelers. “I have already taken seven tours with the company and have two more already planned,” Slome shares. “My goal is to share my experiences with family, friends, my business associates and others who enjoy my same passion for traveling.”
Residing in Los Angeles, the award-winning writer and former travel food editor, Slome will write and maintain the travel websites. In addition to serving as director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance, he heads national organizations for the Medicare Supplement insurance and the short-term care insurance industries.
