Georges Bassoul, managing director from Balearia commented: “We have been working on the concept of ferry plus hotel for a year now and Baleando issues from the very good reception it has had from our clients. The goal is to create a recognizable and digital brand that brings together all this vacation offer. We know that more than 70% of our customers book more than just the ferry, even when visiting friends and family. This partnerships allows us to make it easy for our customers to book all in one place, confident that they are being offered great value and choice.”
Mandy Round – Managing Director of Partnerships at Logitravel said “LogiTravel has worked closely with Balearia for many years. The pandemic has seen a definitive shift for customers looking for more protection when booking their holidays. The protection provided by booking a package with a tour operator made it a natural step to be able to offer this to Balearia’s customers.” And added: “We will treat Baleando as we would one of our own inhouse tour operations, with a bespoke range of directly contracted hotels in the most popular destinations, adding them to
Balearia’s best priced ferries and making this the place to book your ferry plus hotel package, with the best prices.”
