The current economical crisis is shifting tourism products trends and consumption in Europe: people are traveling for shorter periods, closer to their countries but with a higher frequency
Paris, Rome, Madrid, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro (PRWEB) June 14, 2009
Going to Paris? Why not having dinner at the Eiffel Tower?
Visiting Rome? Ready for a check on what Dan Brown wrote with our Angels and Demons tour?
Just arrived in the Big Apple? How about a helicopter ride over New York?
This is what City-Discovery.com is all about: this online merchant is selling tours, activities and things to do throughout with more than 4800 products available in 260 destinations. For the layman booking activities before traveling seems far fetched, yet it follows the current trend of tourists willing to fully book their trip before taking the plane. No more queuing, tours cancelled at the last minute or abusive fees charged. A stress free way of traveling indeed!
City Discovery blossomed on English speaking markets that are used to booking well in advance their holidays (most notably the US market) and is now willing to entice other markets to jump in the bandwagon. The company recently launched its French (City-Discovery.fr), Italian (City-Discovery.it), Spanish (City-Discovery.es) and German (City-Discovery.com/de) website versions to reach out to the Old Continent.
"The current economical crisis is shifting tourism products trends and consumption in Europe: people are traveling for shorter periods, closer to their countries but with a higher frequency", says Emmanuel Issaurat, City Discovery CEO. "In a word, in Europe, the market will be more about city trips, short travel experience and the search for the best deals to get a fresh breath of air during 3 to 4 days."
"We are also willing to introduce our services in South America where there are an important number of travelers going to the USA or within the continent". Hence the adaptation of a Spanish version to South American speaking countries and to the Hispanic Americans and a Brazilian version (City-Discovery.com/po).
City Discovery will soon launch specially adapted and translated versions of its website in Scandinavia, Russia, China, Korea and Japan, where tourism trends have evolved drastically or are still shaping up (especially in China).
