“We’ll bring ours to the fair Advertisementfocusing on fall-winter program of Teorema Vacanze with weekly departures and new product lines that we have just finalized such as tours and itineraries. For Volonclick we will present the tools dedicated to travel agencies to simplify their work”. Luigi Deli (pictured), founder and CEO of Volonlineanticipates the main innovations that the group will launch TTG travel experienceon stage from October 12 to 14 at the Rimini Fair.
The group will meet the market at booth 185-186 Hall C3with its marks Volonline, Volonclick and Teorema Vacanzethanks to a positive summer.
“We closed one summer positive for all brands – explains Deli -. In particular we are very satisfied with Teorema Vacanze, which actually started its operations from June 1, so when the season has already largely started. Not only did we honor all the commitments we had made, but we received more demand than we had anticipated”.
As well Volonclickthe brand that benefited the most from the launch of Teorema Vacanze during the summer: in the last quarter, the turnover of OTO Volonclick, in terms of tour-operating, was in fact substantially tripled compared to 2019. “When we decided to acquire the Teorema Vacanze brand, the objective was to adequately position a specific product line, associating each brand with a specific type of travel, while meeting the needs of travel agencies. Six months after the acquisition, we can say that the three-mark system we had assumed works and mostly gives the desired results: Volonline is increasingly positioning itself as a tour operator specializing in tailor-made long-haul travel, Teorema Vacanze, a few months from the start of its activity, is already a reference for packages and special departures ready for sale, while Volonclick is the ally of travel agencies as a self-booking tool to make them competitive both in terms of operational speed and pricing with what is offered by the web”, continues Luigi Deli.
Autumn and winter
As for next season, Luca Adamicmo and cto of the Group explains that “having already put most of the departure and winter holiday offers online on all the Group’s platforms since the end of July, reservations started at the end of AugustWherein a resolutely positive way with important figures for the three brands”.
The most popular destinations
For Vacation theorem the most popular destinations for fall and winter are Red Sea, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Cuba and, in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives.
Volonclick on the other hand, it records an exponential growth for short range on European capitals in general, but also a growing interest in Arab Emirates, including Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and Sharm el Sheik and Morocco.
Finally, Volonline confirm requests on long-haul destinationsespecially for Indian Ocean, Middle East, United States and Africa, including South Africa. The only area that which is still struggling to recover is that of the Far Eastdue to delays in reopening to international tourism.
“Over the past few weeks, we have noticed a large increase in undated bookings and a general delay in bookings over Christmas and New Years, probably due to a series of external factors of uncertainty such as the energy crisis, the increase in the cost of flights, the exchange rate at par between the euro and the dollar – reports Deli -. In any case, it is a delay that affects the entire organized travel sector. However, we are confident that if the indices are even only comparable to the date below, we are expecting some really interesting months.”
