Drastic times call for drastic measures

#1 Post by Michael O'Brien » March 9th, 2020, 11:56 am

I just received an email from these folks. Text copied below. Interesting approach. Will we see more?

"A nice program to help us get through this bad time

Vinarium, like many other Italian tour operators, is struggling at this crucial time due to the effects of far-reaching travel restrictions imposed because of the coronavirus. Such unforeseen circumstances are affecting our business and our ability to operate and this is why we are contacting you
We are proposing a “Support Vinarium voucher”, as a way for us to go through this dark financial period .
If you decide to come to Italy or should you prefer to give it to a friend or a relative as a gift , you can offer us a little help by purchasing a “Support Vinarium voucher” and your help will come back to you any time in the future, as a deposit payment for future bookings with us.
The voucher can consist of any amount of money and will not expire. You can use it to book one of the following tours, for yourself or as a gift for a friend or relative, or to buy some of our wines.
You can choose among the following tours:
Wine tours
Oil and Food tours
Cooking programs
Photo tours
Bike tours
You can order some of our wines at https://www.vinaio.com/virtuemart-featu ... -wine-list.

We are grateful for your attention and available for any kind of information.
Have a nice time.
