Classic Package Holidays expands range with 1,000 hotels

Mauritius, Jamaica, Barcelona and Lisbon have been introduced by Classic Package Holidays as 1,000 new hotels are added to its portfolio. 

An expanded programme b the trade-only operator sees 34 properties in Mauritius, 122 in Barcelona, 11 Disney hotels and four Sandals all-inclusive resorts.

Other properties new to the operator include Sunwing Fanabe Beach, Tenerife; Sunprime Atalantic Vue Suite, Gran Canaria and  Liberty Fabay, Dalaman and Aquaworld Belek in Antalya.  

Two star hotels are being featured for the first time with the addition of 168 “lower price point” properties. 

Internal sales, product and commercial director Alex Gavalda said: “We are increasing our portfolio by 1,000 properties by adding a mix of new destinations, and new hotel product within existing destinations. 

“High demand from our trade partners for the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius has seen us cover the key hotels on the island. 

“Jamaica is an attractive proposition as not many business to business operators currently feature the island.  We’re confident it will be a welcome new option and a popular addition to our portfolio. 

“Both Barcelona and Lisbon are desirable options as city break destinations with access to the beach.”

Gavalda added: “We’re offering our trade partners more choice than ever before, and further enhancing our price competitiveness with the inclusion of a wide selection of two star hotels, but  without compromising on quality. 

“We will continue to monitor the performance of hotels by checking on customer satisfaction, and will not feature hotels that fail to meet our quality criteria.”  

Agency sales and marketing director Si Morris-Green said: “Our travel agent partners asked for new destinations and we’re delighted to have responded with these new destinations. 

“We want to offer travel agents the ultimate in freedom, flexibility and choice for their customers and are constantly reviewing our product and booking process via feedback from our trade partners. 

“The increased market share that our additional destinations will bring ties in with our strategy of growing Classic Package Holidays into the market-leading business-to-business-only proposition.’
