A recent survey by the MAST Travel Network has revealed that among 166 travel agents, eight percent of those surveyed reported clients who have either re-booked trips from Mexico to other destinations or canceled their travel plans entirely. MAST went on to report that 52 percent of agents reported specifically not wanting to visit Mexico, and another 49 percent claimed that their clients are reluctant to travel at all internationally.
“The intensifying issues of immigration, the border wall, and trade are, in my view, going to cause some customers to think twice about a vacation in Mexico if they feel they are not welcome,” said John Werner, President and COO of MAST.
“I don’t believe anyone should feel that way, but based on our member survey, agents are hearing concerns from their clients.”
