Booking tours and activities together with flights can help travelers save money on admission fees, avoid long queues and generally make exploring a new city easy and more convenient.
Paris, France (PRWEB) September 24, 2011
Aegean Airlines now offers more than 5,000 sightseeing tours and activities in over 80 countries across the globe through a partnership with City-Discovery.com. The available activities range from half-day guided visits, attraction tickets to multi-day all-inclusive packages.
The partnership provides Aegean customers with access to transfers to and from 400+ airports and ports through City-Discovery.com’s sister site, World-Airport-Transfer.com. All transfers booked will be covered by a carbon emissions-offset program to benefit the Phetchaburi Biomass Project in Thailand through the Carbon Neutral Company.
Passengers will now be able to choose from Skip-the-Line packages for top attractions like the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower or the Vatican, City Pass tickets that offer free admission, transport and discounts, or even private tours that include lunch and roundtrip transfers. City-Discovery.com’s product catalogue covers affordable Hop-On Hop-off bus tours to unusual special occasion activities like a hot-air balloon ride or an opportunity to go diving with sharks.
In addition the members of the Frequent Flyer Program of Aegean Airlines, Miles&Bonus, will benefit by earning two miles on every one Euro spent on tours, sightseeing activities or airport transfers.
City-Discovery.com’s President and Founder Emmanuel Issaurat stated, “We are very happy to be partners with Aegean Airlines and their award-winning record for quality and service in the region. We are confident that the partnership will be fruitful and will lead to more choices for the customers.”
The agreement is set to benefit both companies and travelers alike. Passengers will now be able to pre-book activities in advance along with their flights, ensuring the availability of popular tours when they get to their destination.
“Booking tours and activities together with flights can help travelers save money on admission fees, avoid long queues and generally make exploring a new city easy and more convenient,” Issaurat adds.
