Tuesday 29, June 2010
The vacation is alive and well in 2010. According to the latest American Express Spending & Saving Tracker, more than 50 per cent of respondents are making plans to satiate their wanderlust this year.*
Furthermore, a recent Star Report by Smith Travel Research indicates that travellers are turning first to reliable, high-end hotel companies such as Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, thereby recognising the high value of the peace of mind that comes with knowing their money will be well spent.
“We are experiencing an upswing in business because of several key factors, including travellers’ unwillingness to compromise the quality of their vacation,” says Susan Helstab, Executive Vice President of Marketing. “Discerning travellers recognise the value of superior quality, exceptional service and memorable experiences in an environment that enriches time spent with loved ones.”
With fresh value-driven offerings, innovative dining experiences and new hotel openings around the world, travellers have ample reason to give in to the travel bug.
Four Seasons continues to develop some of the most sought-after gastronomic experiences in the world by creating restaurants and bars with distinct personalities that lure local clientele and visitors alike.
Always with an eye to the future, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts continues their steady path of expansion in destinations that appeal to both business and leisure travellers.
Four Seasons responds to guests’ need for simple, value-driven offers by inviting travellers to stay a bit a longer or experience more this summer, With Our Compliments. All 82 hotels and resorts are providing even more flexibility to create completely customised vacations through packages that grant either complimentary nights or a generous spending credit that can be used towards virtually anything at the Hotel, including dining, spa treatments and more.
Complementing the above, Four Seasons provides all the comforts of home through thoughtful, gratis amenities and services. These include:

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.
