We are just starting to come out of our slow winter season here at Pioneer. In the coming months, we are anticipating overseeing many groups in the Denver area and across the United States. Spring and summer are by far our busiest seasons for group travel.

Our reservations system allows us to track flights in real time, thus cutting down on time spent tracking individual arrivals. The system also allows us to manage multiple groups at once by displaying our clients’ and company names on screen at all times, as well as the arrival and departure locations and times.

Having a designated driver is the best way to ensure that everyone stays safe when you are out having a fun time. As a designated driver, you must refuse to drink any alcohol, otherwise you may be putting yourself and others in danger. The designated driver is not the “least drunk” out of everyone. From 2010-2014, nearly 2 out of 3 traffic fatalities between midnight and 6am after St Patrick’s Day occurred in drunk driving crashes. Over St. Patrick’s Day from 2009 to 2013, there were a total of 276 lives lost in drunk-driving crashes. Did you know that in the State of Colorado, 1st Offense DUI can result in one or more of the following: Administrative license revocation for 9 months; $600 to $1,000 fine; up to 1 year in jail; up to 96 hours community service; alcohol education.
