This year holiday bookings for Greece via TUI are expected to increase 30 percent. This not only includes popular choices but other destinations as well as confirmed by Marek Andryszak, head of the company. The head of the German tour operator had visited Greece to participate in the annual meeting of TUI in Germany with Greek hoteliers in Thessaloniki. He said that the two major reasons Greece showed such remarkable growth in bookings is because of low demand of Turkey and Spain’s failure to match-up with Greece’s demand.
TUI officials explained that Greece has huge potential to establish itself as one of the sought-after destinations in the world which the place didn’t attempt in 2015 and 2016 because of various external reasons.
To quote Andryszak, ‘’ this year the average rate will come to a higher level than last year.” He explained that “this will be mainly due to the earlier reduction in hoteliers’ offers than in previous years as contract rates are slightly increased. TUI has the biggest portfolio it’s ever had in Greece” and attributed the choice of Thessaloniki for the meeting with the Greek hoteliers to the tour operator’s objective being “the recovery of our momentum in the market of northern Greece that has declined since the start of the 2000s.”
