Icelandair lanceert Team Iceland Stopover, een reeks van 90 minuten durende, op voetbal geïnspireerde ervaringen, samen gecreëerd met de IJslandse aanvoerder Aron Gunnarsson en zijn team

Reykjavik, IJsland, 2018-May-10 — /EPR Travel News/ — De trans-Atlantische luchtvaartmaatschappij Icelandair heeft vandaag de Team Iceland Stopover gelanceerd, een selectie van 90 minuten durende, op voetbal geïnspireerde ervaringen, samengesteld door het IJslandse nationale elftal, waar alle passagiers gratis van kunnen genieten.

Na de opmerkelijke prestatie van het land op het Europees Kampioenschap in 2016, heeft IJsland dit jaar het ultieme sportieve podium in Rusland bereikt en is daarmee de kleinste natie die zich ooit heeft gekwalificeerd. Dit is een uniek moment in de geschiedenis van het land en als trouwe sponsor van het team, die het team al vanaf het begin steunt, viert Icelandair hun succes door passagiers uit te nodigen om in de voetstappen van de spelers te treden tijdens deze speciaal ontworpen ervaringen voor de gehele familie.

Deze 90 minuten durende ervaringen laten de hoogtepunten van de trots van dit unieke land zien, en van de reis die de spelers maken op weg naar het grootste voetbalevenement. Zoals het hoort bij een land dat vooruitstrevend is in gendergelijkheid en het belang van jeugdtraining inziet, bieden de ervaringen van Icelandair inzicht in het leven van de spelers van zowel het mannen- als vrouwenteam en de IJslandse voetbalgeschiedenis. Net als de tijd van de spelers op het veld, kan er in 90 minuten veel bereikt worden, dus maak er het beste van met een Icelandair Team Iceland Stopover.

Aron Gunnarsson, de aanvoerder van het IJslands nationale mannenelftal laat in een reactie weten: “Wanneer we het veld betreden, weten we als IJslandse spelers dat we een hele bijzondere teamgeest hebben die voortkomt uit onze IJslandse geschiedenis. Er zijn verschillende unieke IJslandse ervaringen en tradities die ons het team maken dat we vandaag de
dag zijn, en we nodigen voetbalfans, en anderen, uit om meer te ontdekken door een Team Iceland Stopover te nemen op hun volgende trans-Atlantische vlucht.”

Deze 90 minuten durende activiteiten, die beschikbaar zijn van mei tot en met eind juni, en gehoor geven aan een reeks van passiepunten van reizigers, van cultuur, tot fitness, tot welzijn. Om passagiers een authentieke ervaring, en lokale inzichten in de voetbalcultuur van IJsland te kunnen bieden, worden alle ervaringen gehost door een ‘Stopover Buddy’, een medewerker van Icelandair die gepassioneerd is over IJsland en voetbal en die er trots op gaat om zijn of haar lokale kennis en expertise te kunnen delen.

Björgólfur Jóhannsson, de directeur en CEO van Icelandair laat in een reactie weten: “Als trotse sponsor van het nationale elftal zijn we verheugd om hun succes deze zomer te vieren met onze Team Iceland Stopover-dienst. We zijn voortdurend op zoek naar manieren om de ervaring van onze klanten te verbeteren en hopen dat passagiers van een goed bestede reistijd genieten mede door dit waarde toevoegende aanbod. Onze passagiers kunnen niet alleen meer ontdekken over de geschiedenis van dit legendarische team, maar we hebben ook met de spelers samengewerkt om deze ervaringen persoonlijk te ontwerpen, waardoor onze passagiers in hun voetstappen kunnen treden.”

PESAPAL accept credit cards VISA and MASTERCARD and mobile money as well.

Individual parking reviews for 130 airports across United States and Canada

Hardy, VA, 2018-Jan-17 — /Travel PR News/ — Airport Parking Helper, a leading authority on discount airport parking in the United States and Canada, recently expanded its online services to an additional 117 airports.

“From Albuquerque to Winnipeg, we now offer individual parking review pages for 130 airports,” said the website’s founder, Jennifer Church. “Each airport review page details a variety of ways flyers can find cheap airport parking options. Some are traditional money-savings methods – like private off-site parking lots – while others are more creative airport parking strategies that perhaps they haven’t thought of before.”

To make it easier for travelers to quickly find their airport, AirportParkingHelper.com also added a powerful search feature.

“Simply type in your city name or airport code in the in the box at the upper right corner of every page and click ‘Go!’ to find the custom parking review for your airport,” Church said. “Once there, you can browse our expert airport parking tips, grab a coupon code and quickly and securely reserve your parking space online.”

Church added that new features have already been a huge hit with visitors to the site.

“We hear repeatedly from flyers in the U.S. and Canada that we’ve made it so much easier for them to find cheaper options for short term and long term airport parking,” she said. “Now, with a more robust site, we can help an even larger number of them save money and time by pre-booking a guaranteed spot, something most on-site economy airport parking lots don’t allow.”

While the expansion benefits travelers in small and mid-size markets who previously had difficulty finding a comprehensive resource for airport parking options, those in larger cities will also find the site’s added functionality helpful.

“With on-site airport parking costs continuing to skyrocket at major metro airports like New York’s JFK, Chicago’s O’Hare and SFO, it’s more important than ever for travelers to book airport parking in advance if they don’t want to be stuck with a hefty bill,” Church said. “It also helps reduce travel day stress when you know you’ve got a guaranteed parking spot and a quick, free shuttle ride straight to your terminal.”

ADVENTURE KINGS SOLAR PANEL RANGE – HOW MUCH POWER DO I NEED?

Sydney, NSW, Australia, 2018-Jan-15 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — When you need to recharge yourself and your 12V system, look no further than an Adventure Kings Solar charging system.

We have pioneered a range that starts from a simple 10W USB solar charger to a fully fledged 250W output array with MPPT Regulation for absolute maximum output to give you the options to power your setup no matter what you take camping with you.

All Adventure Kings Solar panels use Monocrystalline silicone cell construction which is the most efficient panel design available remaining lightweight and compact whilst still outputting effective power for use at home or in the bush.

We have fully standalone systems that include a solar regulator in both hard framed designs or the more flexible folding solar blankets which are excellent for space saving in the back of your vehicle or for emergency use.

We even have a fully customisable 110W Hard mounted system that includes fittings so you can easily and permanently mount it to your vehicle, camper trailer, campervan, caravan or boat with your choice of solar regulator.

We stock both the easy to operate low cost PWM style of regulator that has become the standard across the industry, or you can upgrade to one of our high efficiency, high output MPPT style regulators which gives you up to 30% more efficiency in cloudy or overcast conditions ensuring you get the most out of your solar setup no matter what the weather conditions.

Adventure Kings maintains its reputation for supplying functional camping setups whilst also still offering some of the most affordable solar setups available to the Australian market!

Whatever your 12V setup, Adventure Kings has a Solar charging system to efficiently top up your batteries and run accessories, with zero running costs and zero noise, whilst you kick back and relax and enjoy your favorite campsite in peace and quiet….When you are looking for a solar panel setup, you can’t look past an Adventure Kings Solar setup.

When you’re building a tourer or planning a campsite in your head, solar panels should always be a consideration – they are a source of free, limitless power after all – but how do you know what panel to choose!?

Luckily Adventure Kings has a wide range of panels, that won’t break the bank.

There are two main considerations to make when choosing a solar panel – how much power you use and how much space you have to pack your panel/s.

First, to calculate your requirements, consider how many 12 volt accessories you use at camp.

Generally all electrical products will have a wattage listed (check for a sticker near the power cord) you can use this wattage to calculate the real-time amps the product will use while it’s on. Some products may also list an Amp/Hour rating which simply gives an average on the total amount of amps used per hour the product is turned on. For example, the Adventure Kings 60L fridge/freezer is rated to use less than 1 amp/hour when the interior is set at 5°C and the outside temperature is 32°C.

So let’s work through an example:

You arrive at camp at 6pm on Friday, and it’s 32°C – your fridge is down to temperature at 5°C thanks to being plugged in while you drive and you’re ready for an icy cold beverage while you light the campfire, roll out your swag and set up the awning. Then you set up an Illuminator Strip Light and as the sun sets you turn it on and wind it down for ambient light.

As the temperature drops into the night your fridge will use less power, but every time you open it for a bevvy it has to work to cool back down again, so we’ll assume the fridge is using the rated 0.83Amp/Hours all night and into the morning. 6pm to 8am the fridge has used around 12 amp hours. The Illuminator strip light was on for 5 hours total and uses 0.4A at its low level for a total of 2A

So between 6pm and 8am you used 14 Amps total – whether you have a 98AH or 115AH deep cycle battery you’ve still got plenty of juice.

But throughout the next day your fridge will continue to use power. Between 8am Saturday and 8am Sunday it will use another 24 Amps. Add another 5 hours of strip light use for 2Amps and add in a phone charge using a cig socket USB adapter rated at 12W – that’s another Amp per hour your phone is on charge. In this case your phone is charged in 2 hours so that’s another 2Amps. Plus you use your Thumper to inflate some inner tubes to relax and float in the river – you use your Thumper for 15 minutes. To calculate the amps used per hour, you find the instantaneous power listed on the sticker (45Amps) and because you’ve used it for a quarter of an hour, calculate one quarter of 45. For this example we’ll call it 12Amp/Hours.

So Saturday to Sunday morning 8am you’ve used 40Amp/Hours – combine this with the Friday night total 14Amps and you’re looking at 54Amp/Hours – at this point your Deep cycle battery has used over 55% capacity if you’ve got the 98AH battery, and over 46% capacity if you’re using a 115AH battery.

You’re planning to leave camp at 4pm so the fridge still needs to be powered by your battery for a further eight hours. That’s another 8Amp/Hours, bringing the total weekend use up to 62Amp/Hours. 63% of your 98AH battery and 53% of your 115AH battery – you should definitely add a solar panel to keep those batteries charged!

Now you can look at the output of the different solar panels available.

4WD Supacentre offers a 110W fixed solar panel, a 120W Folding Solar blanket (with PWM regulator) a 160W Folding solar kit (with PWM regulator) and a 250W folding solar panel kit (with PWM regulator). The table below shows their maximum charging amperage (assuming the same PWM regulator for all panels) as well as the estimated total Amp/Hours after 6,8 and 10 hours of sun light.

So even six hours of sunlight on the Saturday and Sunday and your battery will have recharged at least 72A/H with a 110W Fixed Solar Panel (with added PWM regulator.) This would cover your power usage and keep your batteries charged. Of course, this is only a guide and your actual consumption may vary depending on many factors including, but not limited to, the outside temperature, fridge temperature, battery condition, wiring size and condition, solar panel angle and position etc etc.

The second consideration is the amount of space you have in your vehicle – for smaller vehicles, a 120W portable Solar blanket is perfect as it packs down to a compact size and still packs a punch.

For permanent mounting solar panels, the choice is obvious – a 110W fixed solar panel (or two!) These feature a thicker aluminium frame and don’t come with a regulator so you can connect your own, use a DC to DC charger and even connect multiple.

For bigger vehicle where space is less of a priority a 160 or 250 watt folding solar panel is ideal. You can set these at varying angles to catch the sun, and they mean you can park in the shade and have your panel in the sun doing the hard work! They also provide plenty of power for bigger camp setups or hotter conditions where your fridge is working more to keep your drinks cool.

Spain-Holiday.com: The 4 TOP TIPS how to get a Spanish summer holiday in the sun for less

MALAGA, 2018-Jan-11 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Here are the 4 TOP TIPS how to get a Spanish summer holiday in the sun for less:

1. Taking the sting out of the School Holiday Peak Rates
The first rule for booking a budget beach break is normally to avoid travelling in the school holidays. However, if you have school-age children, then holidaying during those pricey summer school holidays is unavoidable.

However, the latest travel trend report from Spain-Holiday.com shows that even during the high season school summer holidays in July and August, there are still savings to be made of up to 32% off peak travel rates on the Spanish Costas.

Jannich Petersen COO of Spain-Holiday.com recommends:

“If you can be flexible on destination, there are some great deals on family-friendly beach holiday rental properties, such as on the Costa Dorada, where a week’s stay in mid-July can be found for an average 32% off, compared to peak travel prices in August.”

2. Book early
Early January is the time to book your summer holiday or at the very least to be thinking about it and finalising your arrangements before end of February. Families with school-aged children already know the dates that you can go away, so the sooner you narrow down your choice of location, you will have the best pick of properties at the best price.

3. Timing is everything
The off-season traveller often sees the best of a destination. With the high season crowds thinning out, cheaper flights and better deals to be found on accommodation.

Flexible travel dates can reap the biggest bargains. Just one week either side of peak of high season can see prices drop by an average of up to 13%. Two weeks either side of the peak of high season and those savings go up to an average of 32%.

“The difference of a couple of weeks either side of peak season, and just a few degrees in temperature can add up to as much as 60% savings on average”, advises Jannich Petersen, COO Spain-Holiday.com.

4. Look further afield
Certain areas are always more popular, having been promoted as tourist destinations to the international market for many decades.  However, with a little research, you can find equally stunning locations without looking too far.

The Costa Blanca is one of Spain’s beach destination hotspots and the price reflects this with an average peak travel rate of over €1,000 for a week’s accommodation in high season. However, accommodation on the neighbouring Costa Calida, is an average 22 per cent cheaper, saving more than €100 per week.

Spain-Holiday.com: Top 5 cheapest city break destinations in Spain

 

Malaga, Spain, Nov-3-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — With the clocks going back last weekend and the winter nights closing in, the impulse to book a last-minute flight to somewhere sunny is very tempting.

However, a cheap flight does not necessarily mean a cheap and cheerful weekend away.

Which city destination offers the best value depends to a large extent on how much you spend when you get there. The City Break Cost Index published by the Spain-Holiday.com reveals how typical costs for travellers varies greatly from city to city in Spain this autumn/winter. It examines everything from the price of airport transfer by taxi, bus, train and *Uber*, eating out, accommodation and things to do.

Where to go to escape the winter blues on a budget?

As you might expect, the report reveals that the most expensive cities are also the most popular cities – Barcelona, Madrid and Palma – but you may be surprised which cities offer the best value.

TOP 5 CHEAPEST CITY BREAK DESTINATIONS IN SPAIN

The Andalusian city of Jerez, famous for its sherry and dancing Andalusian horses, is the cheapest city to visit for a weekend break.

Andalusia is the top region to visit for a short break, with four cities – Jerez, Seville, Granada and Malaga – in the top 5 cheapest city break destinations. With new flight routes from the UK to Seville and Granada this winter, you can catch a flight and, within 3 hours, be enjoying tapas in a Spanish “plaza” in the November sunshine.

Comparing the price of visiting the top 10 attractions in each city, Barcelona is the most expensive city, costing £117 per person to visit attractions such as Sagrada Familia, Casa Battlo, Camp Nou Experience and Las Ramblas (which is thankfully free). In comparison, you would get change from £30 to visit the top 10 attractions in the cities of Alicante, Bilbao, Malaga and Seville.

After booking flights, travellers spend an average of £596 on a city break in Spain. Accommodation, eating out and visiting tourist attractions are what visitors are most likely to spend their budget on. The biggest cost tends to be accommodation, with travellers spending an average of £241 for a 2-night stay.

While hotels remain one of the top accommodation choices, staying in a city centre apartment not only offers flexibility but huge savings too.

For example, a rental apartment for two people in Malaga costs up to £156 less than a double room in a hotel. And for under £200, a couple can find quality rental accommodation for 2-nights in the heart of Jerez, Malaga, Alicante and Valencia.

Jannich Petersen, COO of Spain-Holiday.com commented:

“City breaks are almost as popular as sun and beach holidays to Spain and now represent 26% of all holidays.”

“The top 10 Spanish cities differ greatly in their appeal and there is something for everyone, whether they are culture vultures, shopaholics, foodies or those looking for a vibrant nightlife.

The City Break Cost Index aims to provide clarity for travellers to plan and budget for a memorable weekend winter break in Spain that doesn’t break the bank”.

Travel to Africa this Holiday season on a wise budget friendly Nairobi tours and Kenya Safari Packages

Nairobi, Kenya, 2017-Nov-02 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Budget travelers are increasingly looking for holiday destinations on the internet opting to join other people for any Kenya safari package. Most Tourists use price as a major factor in deciding which safari company to use thus the idea to share the costs.

Over the past 8 months it has been reported that there has been an increase of requests by single and budget travellers on shared Safaris. Group bookings arranged to make travel and accommodation cheaper for tourists in Kenya have dominated this safari option, the groups are encouraged to charter planes at reduced airfares from Europe to Kenya to come and join Safari Ndovu 6 days safari package.

Featuring of the Safari Ndovu 6 day safari package by Cruzeiro-Safaris.com is a pocket friendly safari incorporating 2 national parks that is Amboseli National Park and Lake Nakuru National park, 1 game reserve Masai Mara National Reserve and 1 popular eatery attraction that is the carnivore restaurant in Nairobi. It is important for tourists to know the different wildlife terminologies used in Kenya such as National parks, game reserves and sanctuaries found in Kenya.

National Parks are set up and controlled by the central government. They are established by an Act of Parliament or through legal notice by the Minister concerned, in the government gazette. Its boundaries or existence can only be altered by similar legislative action. National Parks are managed and controlled by government agencies. The agencies collect entry fees to the parks, take care of the animals and assist in resolving the people animal conflict.

The Safari Ndovu 6 day Safari package visits 2 (two) of these National Parks namely Amboseli and Lake Nakuru National Parks.

Other Important National Parks are:

  • Nairobi National Park tour in Nairobi
  • Amboseli National Park Day trips from Nairobi
  • Lake Nakuru National Park Full day trip from Nairobi
  • Aberdares National Park Safaris from Nairobi
  • Tsavo East and Tsavo West Tours and Safaris from Mombasa

Other attractions in Nairobi

  • Elephant Orphanage Tour in Nairobi
  • Giraffe Center and Karen Blixen in Nairobi
  • Nairobi City Tour, national museum plus lunch

National Game reserves or National Reserves are set up and managed by the local authority where it is located. The local communities interact freely with the wildlife before such an area is declared a game reserve. Unlike National Parks, the local communities are allowed to live and graze their animals in game reserves. For example, the Maasai people live and graze their animals in Masai Mara without being restricted by the management of the park. Game reserves may also be set up and owned and managed by private individuals with special permission from the Central Government. In Laikipia district, there are several game reserves that are privately owned and fenced off from the public. The Government has little control over what takes place in the privately-owned game ranches. Whereas the government has banned game hunting, animals in privately owned ranches are slaughtered to provide game meat to major hotels in Nairobi and Mombasa under licence from the Central Government.

Wildlife Sanctuaries are areas that have been set aside for the protection of specific animals or birds if they are considered endangered for one reason or other. In an environment where elephants are threatened by poachers for example, a protected area is established and fenced off to host only elephants, where they are cared for and secured. Such an area is called an elephant sanctuary such as the Mwaluganje National reserve in Kwale District. The Safari Ndovu – 6 days package does not visit any sanctuary, however at Cruzeiro-safaris, one may request for a tailored safari to the Sweet Waters Sanctuary caring for Chimpanzees or any other Sanctuary.

Other safaris located in the best game drive view places

  • Mount Kenya and Masai Mara Safari by Road and Flights for 9 (nine) Days
  • Luxury Travel to the best choice of hotels and lodges in Kenya
  • Governors Camp in Masai Mara Safari package for 4 (four) Days flights

The one eatery attraction in the Safari Ndovu – 6 days safari package itinerary is called the Carnivore Restaurant in Nairobi. Guests on the Amboseli National Reserve 3 days package safari or Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara 4 days package safari may join in or drop off on pre-organised group tours after a sumptuous meal at the Carnivore, featuring various kinds of game meat. Carnivore is also known as the meat eaters’ paradise.

Shimba Hills Tour from Mombasa and Diani
One of our guests from Russia who travelled to 1 park and 1 reserve had this to say on our trip advisor page:

Lake Nakuru & Massai Mara My wife and me spent 4 days at Lake Nakuru and Maasai Mara Sopa lodges with Cruseiro. The pick up/drop off from NBO airport.

I like the concept when Cruseiro gives you the mini-bus with a driver who is also a very good guide and who always stays with you during your Safari. The driver/guide is absolutely flexible for you to get maximum pleasure from your trip. The mini-bus hasn’t been very comfortable but nearly all Kenyan safari operators use this type of Toyota vans as it’s realistically very reasonable for Kenyan roads.

Lake Nakuru lodge has a very picturesque location. We could watch rhinos fighting in 20 meters from our lodge window. Maasai Sopa although had much better kitchen. The only negative impression was extremely noisy neighborhood – Chinese in lake Nakuru and north American in Maasai Sopa.

Special thanks to our very experienced guide and driver Simon. We enjoyed his gentleman manners and good sence of humor. Simon did his best to please us up to the end of the trip. Besides, Simon has a very good feeling of where to go to see the best of the wild life. Many thanks to Andrew and Claudia as well. It was a great experience for us!

MeetingPackage.com boast over 250,000 meeting rooms available through its platform around the world

Helsinki, Finland, Nov-1-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — MeetingPackage.com, the global marketplace for booking meeting rooms and packages, announced today the opening of yet a new location in the heart of Madrid, showcasing its rapid growth process after recently adding several offices across Europe.

In charge of the Spanish operations will be Olli Kariniemi, Sales Director and experienced MICE professional in the Spanish destination management business. With the experience gathered since late 90’s within the region, Kariniemi is proven to be a perfect match for MeetingPackage.com.

“We here in Madrid want to be at the forefront of the development of our industry and see increased potential for booking national and international meetings online. MeetingPackage.com was a perfect match and as it is one of the fastest growing marketplaces for booking meeting rooms. They have validated the customer need already in over 40 countries and are looking to build a presence now in Spain. We saw this as a huge possibility, and we are happy to grow together and make this happen”, says Kariniemi.

Lately, MeetingPackage.com has also been in the news as being the first global marketplace to offer direct integration with Oracle’s Opera Sales & Catering system. Used by a majority of the hotels worldwide, users of MeetingPackage.com can soon book their offsite meeting spaces directly online with transparent pricing and availability at any time.

“Hotels and venues have been battling for years to get higher occupancy rates to meeting rooms. One key problem has been slow and complicated sales processes where a customer has to send multiple emails and to make multiple calls to book a meeting room. Hotels have understood that we are here to help them to make their sales process faster and more efficient, so they don’t lose time on unnecessary RFP’s and therefore lose potential customers. This makes it truly easier for both stakeholders, the venues and the customers alike”, says Joonas Ahola, CEO & Founder of MeetingPackage.com.

For MeetingPackage.com, the move is more than simply opening a new office in Madrid. It is also about the unique cooperation which will see significant benefits for corporate buyers, meeting bookers and meeting venues alike. MeetingPackage.com is set to become the most popular marketplace to book meeting rooms globally by 2020.

Tæplega hundrað glæsilegar ljósmyndir prýða sýninguna „Heillandi Peking“ í Reykjavík

Reykjavík, Íslandi, Sep-6-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — „Heillandi Peking“, ljósmyndasýning um ferðalög var haldin í Reykjavík þann 11. ágúst í boði framkvæmdastjórnar Peking um þróun ferðamála (Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development). Zhang Weidong, kínverski sendiherrann á Íslandi, Song Yu, formaður framkvæmdastjórnar Peking um þróun ferðamála, og Inga Hlín Pálsdottir, forstöðumaður ferðaþjónustu og skapandi greina hjá Íslandsstofu mættu á setningarathöfnina og fluttu ræður.

Tæplega hundrað glæsilegar ljósmyndir prýða sýninguna „Heillandi Peking“, sem framkvæmdastjórn Peking um þróun ferðamála hefur safnað um árabil frá bæði innlendum og erlendum ljósmyndurum. Af þeirri ástæðu hafa þær mikið fagurfræðilegt gildi. Þemu þessarar ljósmyndasýningar eru hin forna höfuðborg, tískuborg, menning og lífsstíll og stórborg nútímans, og hún hefur fengið mikla athygli frá innlendum fréttamiðlum og almenningi.

Þessi kynningarviðburður hefur styrkt tvíhliða samskipti og samvinnu við þróun ferðamála, bætt skilning Íslendinga á ferðamálatækifærum í Peking og tekið virkan þátt í að stækka íslenskan ferðaþjónustumarkað fyrir Peking.

Frá árinu 2017 hafa löndin viðhaldið diplómatískum tengslum í meira en 46 ár. Að auki er Ísland mikilvægt land fyrir norðurátt hinnar nýju silkileiðar (The Belt and Road) og Kína er helsti viðskiptaaðili Íslands í Asíu og sjöunda stærsta viðskiptalandið á heimsvísu. Bæði Peking og Reykjavík hafa yfir miklum auðlindum að búa á sviði ferðaþjónustu, svo sem fallega náttúru og djúpar menningarrætur. Fyrir utan fallegt útsýni Reykjavíkur, sem er norðlægasta höfuðborg heims, er þar einnig að finna Þjóðminjasafn Íslands, Listasafn Íslands, Listasafn Einars Jónssonar og aðra sögulega og menningarlega mikilvæga staði. Beijing hefur verið höfuðborg Kína í 4 valdakynslóðir og varðveitir 7 heimsmenningararfssvæði, auk þess sem þar er að finna yfir 170 söfn með fjölmörgu áhugaverðu efni fyrir ferðamenn. Árið 2015 komu fleiri en 48.000 kínverskir ferðamenn til Íslands með næstum því 100% aukningu á milli ára.

Kenya Elections
Kenya has just concluded its General Election in August, 2017. The tourism industry is set to compensate in the coming months from setback of negative reporting especially from international media channels. In some instances this is not the true state on the ground and only affects some areas cluster and NOT the whole country. Most tourist visited areas are not affected. We urge travelers to seek clarification from credible sources of the Kenya Foreign Missions in their Home country or Ministry of Foreign affairs of Kenya. However, we are optimistic that the work done in the past by Hon. Najib Balala and his teams all over the world will not decrease but increase in the coming months and years.

Santa Ana, Calif., Jun-29-2017 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — BookingPal, l’un des leaders internationaux des réseaux de distribution de la location de vacances, annonce un nouveau partenariat avec Arkiane. Arkiane est un concepteur de logiciel de location de vacances qui a créé “Arkiane Locations Saisonnières » et « Arkiane Power Locations Vacances”, deux systèmes de gestion de propriétés axés vers la souplesse, la rigueur et l’efficacité.

“Arkiane permet de gérer les offres de séjours touristiques, du planning à la comptabilité en passant par le Web”, affirme Olivier Charbaut, fondateur et PDG d’Arkiane. “En s’associant à BookingPal, nous sommes ravis d’étendre notre réseau de distribution à des millions de voyageurs, et d’ajouter plus de services pour aider à économiser du temps tout en fournissant un meilleur service.”

Ce nouveau partenariat permettra aux gestionnaires de locations de vacances qui utilisent Arkiane, d’avoir leur inventaire affiché et distribué à travers le réseau international de partenaires de distribution en ligne de BookingPal et celui des agents de voyages hors ligne qui se spécialisent dans la location de vacances. Cette capacité de distribution étendue permet aux clients d’Arkiane d’augmenter la visibilité de leurs propriétés, leur taux d’occupation, les réservations et le revenu tout en atteignant de nouveaux clients.

“Nous sommes excités à l’idée de devenir partenaire avec MP-Concept” déclare Brian Brown, VP du développement des affaires de BookingPal. “Le partenariat et l’intégration entre BookingPal et MP-Concept renforcera le puissance du réseau de distribution de BookingPal sur les sites web de voyages Américains et Européens, avec les inventaires uniques et diversifiés du logiciel Arkiane.

Grâce à notre veille technologique le premier logiciel a été conçu dès l’origine sous Windows, d’où une pérennité forte de nombreuses années d’exploitation et de développement. Aujourd’hui notre nouvelle génération de logiciels est la synthèse de nos plus de 20 ans d’expertise.

A l’écoute permanente de nos clients, nos systèmes évoluent régulièrement, et grâce à nos contrats de télé-maintenance et mises à jour de versions, bénéficient de toutes les évolutions au fil du temps.
