Emirates Tours is launching a new-look modernised brochure for 2007, showcasing exclusive packages for British travellers to some of the world’s most sought after hotels and destinations.
The re-styled brochure, which has a simple, clear design and improved visuals, features 11 new hotels and offers luxury holiday packages to 15 exotic destinations in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka, the Middle East, India, the Far East, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
Prices start at £602 per person for five nights B&B at the Palm Tree Court, Dubai,, including private car transfers and flights with award-winning Emirates.
Stuart Ellis, General Manager, Emirates Tours commented: “Over the last year, we have enjoyed strong growth to all our target destinations, with our most recent figures for September 2006 suggesting that we are on target to achieve a 20% growth rate in the year as a whole.
We have also seen an increase in demand for flexible travel arrangements, with over 40% of our customers taking advantage of a stopover in Dubai, before benefiting from Emirates’ convenient connections to destinations worldwide. Our 2007 brochure therefore features a wide selection of multi-centre holiday options including, for the first time, a fantastic Dubai / Oman twin-destination experience.
As well as new hotels and resorts, we have introduced an updated brochure design this year, as we believe that it is just as important for us to refresh our look and feel as it is our product offering.”
As a leading specialist for the Gulf, Emirates Tours has introduced two new hotels for 2007 - the brand new Emirates Marina Apartments and the already popular Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates - taking UK travellers’ choice to 27 luxury hotels in the Middle East.
The Indian Ocean also continues to show strength for Emirates Tours with sales increasing year on year. The new brochure offers 35 properties across the region, with two additions in the Maldives, including Baros Island, and three new properties in the Seychelles, including the recently opened Maia Luxury Resort & Spa. In addition, the new brochure’s Indian programme features 16 hotels, three tours and nine tour extensions, while it’s Sri Lanka offering has increased to 11 properties.
In response to customer demand for a more extensive programme, Emirates Tours has expanded their range in Thailand and Malaysia to 22 properties for 2007. The Eastern&Oriental Express train will also continue to feature. Holiday options to the Far Eastern cities of Shanghai, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore are also offered.
Due to the vast array of products in Emirates Tours’ South African, Australian and New Zealand programme, all hotels and tours for these regions will be featured on its recently restyled website www.emiratestours.co.uk, which was launched in May 2006.
