Cuba is opening up to the world like never before, and Cubans are smiling (see photo below). TravelCube has thrown open the doors to Cuba by giving Australian travel agents the ability to book rooms at more than 130 hotels across the destination, along with private airport transfers and sightseeing tours.
The Caribbean’s largest island and one of Latin America’s most intriguing destinations, Cuba offers visitors a unique mix of culture, history, food, music and dance. Not to mention cigars. If you are into cigars, like the lady pictured below, Cuba offers some of the best in the world.
Cuba is also a country on the brink of change, with recent moves by the United States to normalise diplomatic and trade relations likely to spark tourism development and an influx of visitors.
TravelCube vice president sales and marketing John Stucci says the decision to add Cuban hotels to the company’s global inventory of more than 50,000 properties will be particularly welcomed by Australian travel consultants.
“Cuba has become an increasingly desirable destination among Australian travellers over the past few years, due in part to the growing popularity of Caribbean cruise holidays,” Stucci says. “At the same time, many Australians are eager to experience Cuba before it is transformed.
“The addition of more than 130 top properties across the country, including historic Havana, will make it easy and efficient for travel agents to book trusted, quality accommodation.”
Stucci says that over the next 12 months TravelCube will steadily grow its range of hotels in Cuba, while at the same time expanding its selection of sightseeing tours and transfers.
Cuba is the latest destination to join TravelCube’s ‘Beach Collection’ – a portfolio of more than 6,600 properties located in many of the world’s most popular locations, including Hawaii, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the Middle East, South East Asia and the South Pacific.
TravelCube recently unveiled a new brochure, ‘The Beach Collection 2016’, which highlights some of the best hotels in the portfolio and provides useful tips, destination information and expert recommendations to help consultants find the right property for their customer.
Agents can view and download a copy of ‘The Beach Collection 2016’ by visiting http://www.travelcube.com/beach.html.
