We've had excellent feedback from our travellers as we're able to provide a single touchpoint for all visa requirements across all destinations, and use Sherpa as a trusted partner to facilitate visa purchases. Sherpa has given our customers peace of mind, addressing anxiety often associated with travel, further reduced inbound calls to our support staff, and prevented customer service issues on the ground.
