A Guest Of Europe today announced the launch of a dedicated site for Scotland. A Guest Of Scotland (http://www.aguest-of-scotland.com) provides the independent tourist with a means to book accommodation, tours and cars throughout Scotland.
A Guest Of Scotland is the second country-specific site to be launched by A Guest Of Europe. It joins A Guest Of Ireland in a growing network of sites designed to cover Europe. Since its launch last year A Guest Of Ireland has become one of the most popular tourism sites in the Ireland and it is expected that A Guest Of Scotland will duplicate this success by providing the independent traveller with a means to both book their complete vacation and to research their visit. Indeed, independent figures provided by Alexa Internet show that A Guest Of Scotland is already one of the most visited sites in the world even before its launch.
ÂBased in Ireland, we naturally have a close affinity with Scotland, and itÂs a country IÂve visited often. So to make this our second country-specific site is a real thrill. We look forward to bringing the same benefits to both tourists and accommodation providers in Scotland as we have previously done in Ireland.Â
A Range Of Services For The Independent Traveller
Scotland is a major destination for both weekend breaks and longer visits thanks to its ancient history, stunning scenery and exciting culture and nightlife. A Guest Of Scotland helps all visitors get the most from their visit with an extensive range of on-line services;
Launching with a range of different accommodation types across the country, A Guest Of Scotland provides the visitor with a choice ranging from Hotels to Hostels and Guesthouses to Apartments in the main cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as smaller towns such as Caithness and St. Andrews.
A large proportion of visitors choose to see the spectacular scenery Scotland has to offer at their own pace by hiring a car. A Guest Of Scotland provides a choice of car rental suppliers including independent companies and international brand-names.
For those interested in learning more about Scottish heritage, history, and sights there is an extensive range of sightseeing tours, ranging from open-top bus tours of Glasgow to week-long excursions in the highlands.
Of course no Scottish site would be complete without a guide to Scottish nightlife. The country possesses some of the best pubs and bars in the world and A Guest of Scotland has an extensive list of these premises, complete with reviews and ratings from previous visitors. The pub and bar reviews are provided in conjunction with RatePubs and are the first of a range of information services planned for the future.
ÂA Guest Of Scotland plans to provide the same unique and successful service in Scotland as we already do in IrelandÂ said Mr. OÂConnell, ÂBy keeping our costs low and developing our own systems we are able to ensure that the independent guesthouse or hotel can receive a full service from as low as Â£45 a year. And this in turn ensures that we can provide our comprehensive and unique offering to all travellers. With the resources of A Guest Of Europe behind it I am confident A Guest Of Scotland will be a welcome and successful addition to the Scottish tourism industry, particularly the independent sector.Â
