The last week has seen a flood of enquiries for Gran Canaria from people who two weeks ago had never heard of Amro Worldwide. This is terrific news for us so its perhaps worth explaining how we fit into the GC gay travel scene.
Until this year, Amro never had a GC programme - this was a very deliberate choice. Respect, Sensations, Throb etc had good product and Amro could offer very little that was different. But around a year ago, our established clients, suffering under the credit crunch, asked us about holidays in Europe. We appointed a local agent on the island and introduced a small programme of 3/4 star hotels. It far exceeded our sales expectations.
To cope with those whose holidays were cancelled, we have now expanded this programme to include many of the self-catering properties previously featured by those companies - apartments such as Valaparaiso, Carmen and Barbados are all now searchable and bookable online or through our call-centre. We also have a deal into Los Almendros over the next few weeks - the former exclusively Respect property - although don't expect the cute staff you fancied on your last visit to still be there! Phone our call-centre for more information.
In addition, we're off shortly to review and expand our range of places to stay, ensuring they fit within our brand values of Gay Travel: Tried and Trusted. So look out for a great new gay travel programme.
Welcome to Amro's travel blogs. We will be updating our blogs with current travel news, destination information and insider knowledge for the gay and lesbian traveller. If you have any questions or comments regarding any of our posted blogs please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
