Travelzoo opens Barcelona sales office

Travelzoo is opening a sales office in Barcelona, Spain, to service the growing demand for Travelzoo’s global media publications from Spanish advertisers.

Travelzoo’s new office will be at Avenida Diagonal 640, Planta 6, Barcelona, 08017, Spain.

“Spain is one of the largest inbound travel markets in Europe and home to some of Europe’s largest travel companies,” said Chris Loughlin, managing director of Travelzoo (Europe) Ltd. “As a global Internet media company that publishes travel offers, it makes sense to have a local sales office to better service our Spanish clients. The Spanish office will also serve clients in other Mediterranean markets such as Portugal.”

In the last 12 months some of Spain’s largest travel companies advertised with Travelzoo in the UK and the USA.

Travelzoo also views its newest location as a response to its more than 500,000 UK Top 20(TM) newsletter subscribers. According to a June 2006 survey(1) of Travelzoo’s UK subscribers, Spain was the most popular destination for holiday travel and Barcelona was the second most popular city break destination, behind London. The strong response to recent Top 20 promotions for hotels in Barcelona, Madrid, Mallorca, Tenerife, Alicante and the Algarve further confirm subscriber interest.
