BIT makes travel easy


A leading Bahrain travel and tour operator promises to take the pain from organising a holiday with its varied range of tailor-made itineraries to suit all tastes and budgets.

"At Bahrain International Travel (BIT), our philosophy is to work closely with our clients, to meet their requirements and to offer suggestions on methods and routes of travel with the objective of making the journey as smooth, efficient and cost effective as possible," says general manager Paul Clabburn.

"We are committed to the continued development of customer service and the enhancement of providing the highest levels of customer service in all areas of our business."

BIT Leisure can offer a range of ideas in answer to the oft-repeated question that arises at holiday time - "Where in the world do we go this year?".

The company says it specialises in tailor-made itineraries, from a simple three-night short break to a three-month round-the-world fully inclusive holiday of a lifetime.

"We can arrange safaris, beach vacations, cruises, coach tours, city breaks and multi-centre holidays - not to mention those of adventure and discovery to exotic, magical destinations," said Clabburn.

"Do you have a particular hobby or interest that you would like to combine with your vacation? Archaeologists to zoologists, train buffs to photographers, scuba divers to trekkers: you name it - we can arrange it. That is where our friendly, knowledgeable staff can help."

The company says it can also offer assistance in organising a convention or a planned programme of recreational activities in Bahrain through its destination management division.

It says its multi-lingual staff can help "from programme and event planning through to organised excursions to places of interest in and around Bahrain, exotic black-tie dinners in the desert, cruises to the islands off Bahrain in a traditional dhow or modern motor yacht to theme parties or starlight barbecues".

BIT Leisure also provides a number of additional services for both individuals and groups, including a wide range of educational facilities - from two-week holiday language courses to full-time study for major examinations and from secretarial training to specialised courses for specific trades and industries.

BIT is the GSA or special status agency for a variety of airlines and travel companies including Singapore Airlines, Japan Airlines, SriLankan Airlines, Royal Jordanian Airlines, Kenya Airways, Iran Air, Ethiopian Airlines, Air 2000 (selective charter operations), Monarch (charter operations), Club Med, Woods Car Rental (UK), South County Self Drive (Ireland), Holland America Line Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line.
