Viajes El Corte Inglés and Logitravel have reached an agreement to merge creating a new company which aspires to become a global benchmark in the travel sector. The new company will cover both leisure and business travel, incentives, conferences and events. The transaction is subject to the approval of the CNMC.
The trip was planned to present the Joint Venture of Grupo Piñero and Logitravel Group to 300 travel agents from Spain, Italy and Portugal, leading representatives of the sector and the media.
Logitravel Group allows the payment of any travel reservation that includes an Iberia flight to be made using a voucher issued from the airline. Payment can be both partial or total and is fully integrated into the payment process for a reservation in the online travel agency Logitravel.com and in the tour operator Smytravel.
The online travel agency Logitravel.com has been designated as a collaborating travel agency for processing the tourist vouchers for the promotion from the government of the Balearic Islands. Residents who wish to travel between islands taking advantage of the subsidy, can now request their tourist voucher from AETIB and make their holiday reservation on Logitravel.com
The Group has developed its own solution, eliminating the resident option from the flight search engines, showing the prices of the standard fares and adding the resident status to the last step for the application of the corresponding discount.
This alliance of two significant brands will allow consolidation under the same banner of Soltour's specialised product - with more than 10,000 travel partners in its portfolio – together with Smytravel's most innovative technology for the distribution of dynamic vacation products and its wide range of destinations worldwide. This new alliance has been created with a strong vocation offering quality, dynamic and innovative product.
The average trip cost is round 1.000€ each family
