Comparing airline prices and schedules is now simple and ensures travel agents and their clients feel they have the best price and itinerary to fit their plans.The Accovia technology was designed exclusively for Club Med, and allows seamless integration of reservations for all aspects, including airfares, of a Club Med inclusive holiday experience.
"For many years, Club Med has been committed to meeting customer expectations with regards to both the resort experience and transportation quality and availability. Today we have gone even further. Not only do we want to offer top-quality service, we want to do it at a more affordable price point. So we are thrilled with this partnership, which opens up a range of attractive pricing options to our customers when they need it," says Quentin Briard, General Manager of Club Med in Australia.
"Low-cost airlines can no longer be ignored, and it was essential that we provide our customers with more options. The successful combination of low-cost services with high-end products, such as those offered by Club Med, clearly demonstrates that we have met the needs of those clients looking for the best possible price. So we are very happy to have been a part of the success of this new business strategy," says Patrick Bleu, Vice-President Marketing and Product Strategy and Managing Director of Accovia France.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
