Online booking – whether on a laptop or PDA – is becoming more and more popular so we’ve developed a unique combination of tee-times, accommodation and travel booking facilities to allow clients to build their own itinerary and to book it online
(PRWEB UK) 11 August 2012
Golfholidays.com, established in 1981, has long been renowned for its personal service and expertise. And now it’s offering two more ways of booking to ensure clients get the level of service, speed and price they want.
Morgan Clarke, Managing Director says “Online booking – whether on a laptop or PDA – is becoming more and more popular so we’ve developed a unique combination of tee-times, accommodation and travel booking facilities to allow clients to build their own itinerary and to book it online or to send it to our team for any finishing touches. Plus, some clients want to take more control over their holiday arrangements so we’re offering them the way to book direct with thousands of hotels, golf courses, hire cars, ferries and flights”.
Depending on what the client books and how, they can benefit from the best service in the industry, fully-bonded arrangements, great-value and ready-made packages or super-quick online confirmations at the best rates the hotel or golf course is offering. And the clients can also decide if they just want to book some tee-times, a hotel or a fully-inclusive holiday.
“We’ve been working on our Online booking programmes for nearly three years” continues Morgan, “and our Online quote facility has been working well for just under a year. And we’ve now launched the direct booking and set-packages. It’s common-sense business-wise as it offers the only all-in-one website in the world in what is a niche but valuable industry. So clients can choose what they need depending on each holiday – for example a client will probably need the “personal touch” for a week’s tour of the South of France or large group booking in Portugal but the same client can take advantage of our set packages for a small group in Normandy say and he might want to make direct bookings for a couple of tee-times and an overnighter in Northern France”.
Golfholidays.com is the fastest-growing golf website in the world and has no fewer than 9 people involved in the programming, design, SEO, PPC and online contracting.
“American Express, three concierge services based in London, a golf magazine and a “standard” tour operator have already signed up to our white label plug and play concept we’re offering and website and client testing has gone better than hoped for”.
“Tour operating is far from dead but you’ve got to come up with some 21st-Century solutions” sums up Morgan.
As you may know, French Golf Holidays is Europe’s longest-established golf holiday company and is still family-run. Since 1981, we’ve developed our holiday programmes and destinations to now feature GolfPlanet, Bond Street Golf and Golfholidays.com, whilst always working hard to offer expert and friendly service at good value.
We do of course keep informed of changes in the industry through our own research, our clients’ opinions and our membership of ABTA and IAGTO so we are aware that some holidaymakers prefer to research and even book Online. That’s why we’ve developed three unique ways of booking golf holidays in addition to the “old fashioned way”.
1. Take complete control over your holiday arrangements by booking direct – through http://www.golfholidays.com – with thousands of hotels, golf courses, hire cars, ferries and flights.
2. Take advantage of our set-packages to ensure best-value at or most popular golf destinations
3. Use our Build Your Own programme to build your own tailor-made itinerary. You can then decide to book it then and there, save it for future reference or to send it to our team for any finishing touches.
So you can choose what you need depending on each holiday – for example, you will probably need the help and “personal touch” of our experts when looking for a week’s tour of the South of France or a large group booking but you can take advantage of our set packages for a small group in Normandy and might want to make direct bookings for a couple of tee-times and an overnighter in Northern France. Whatever your holiday needs, http://www.golfholidays.com is the one-stop shop!
