Travel companies claimed that Spain had strong bookings

Published on : Thursday, August 17, 2017

indexLast week, the Spanish travel trade issued a caution to the tourists that they could be the subject of “serious violent incidents” if dispute continued.


Arran, a local group activist held few protest movements among which some were quite violent across Spain, asserting that tourism is gradually damaging the cities and rising rent.  However, attractions and events specialist Attraction World and Affordable Car Hire claimed that they didn’t see any impact due to the protests.


To quote Stephen Joyner, head of sales at Affordable, “[The protests are] something we are monitoring closely… UK travellers are pretty resilient and as of now no cancellations have been made. That said, we have primed our reservations team to assist clients when they book.”


Sam Jain, chief executive and founder of OTA CheapOair, explained that bookings for Spain had “remained strong”. Nevertheless, he suggested customers to “follow the advice of the FCO for any destination they travel to”.


Abta repeated this week that recent “rapid growth of the peer-to-peer economy” had caused a considerable increase in the number of visitors to some cities. It followed chief executive Mark Tanzer’s observation on BBC Radio 4 last week that it’s unfeasible to limit the capacity in the sharing economy.
