AL Rais Travel will have a major presence at ATM, complimenting the spread of its business.
The company will debut a series of new concept brochures at the show that it says will change the trend of selling packages in Middle East, according to the agency’s Munir Sherwani.
“Our Series of ‘Going’ brochures contain short packages that can be mixed and matched with each other. Each package includes the same basic component that can suit the most budget conscious traveller or the most demanding traveller.” At ATM, the agency will launch its Going brochures for the Far East, Australia, New Zealand, Middle East and Africa. Basic three-day package includes accommodation, private transfers and one sightseeing trip. Listed prices do not include airfare, giving travellers the flexibility to use preferred airlines and miles.
“For agents who wish to sell these packages, the prices are commissionable by 10 per cent, and they can issue the air tickets from their own office thus giving them the facility to push sales on the airlines that they wish to promote,” he says.
Al Rais will also have a choice of packages to other regular destinations as well as adding a new destination, the Ukraine. “We will also be launching cruises around the Greek Islands and Turkey, with Louis Cruise Lines. With budget cruising in the Hellenic islands, it will bring cruises within the reach of all those that could only dream of cruising earlier.”
The company’s portfolio of train franchises will also be on display.
