Kuoni has confirmed it has entered into a partnership with retail giant John Lewis which will see the travel agent open concessions in as many as 20 department stores.
Concessions will initially open in the autumn at John Lewis shops in Oxford Street, Reading, Southampton and Cardiff.
The concessions will range from 444 sq ft to 821 sq ft of space and will combine the look and feel of the two brands, with John Lewis furniture and Kuoni fittings, explained a statement from the brands earlier.
Kuoni will also offer John Lewis Travel Insurance to its customers, and become the travel partner for John Lewis Gift List.
Derek Jones, managing director at Kuoni explained: “We are really excited about this partnership. Kuoni and John Lewis have a lot in common; we have a very similar customer base and share the same approach to business, putting customer service at the heart of everything we do.
“We know that our customers really value the expert personal knowledge we provide and the success of our High Street stores has shown that the best way to truly understand their needs is to spend time with them, face to face in the right surroundings.
“These concessions will allow us to bring our unique approach to travel retailing into John Lewis shops.”
