Sun Island Tours Reports Strong Double Digit Growth

October 30, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

As Australia’s leading Mediterranean and Middle Eastern travel experts Sun Island Tours approaches 30 years of operation, the wholesaler reports strong and consistent double-digit growth each year.

Enjoying a whopping 30% increase in YOY bookings to date, Owner and General Manager John Polyviou attributes the company’s ongoing success to a few key factors. They include having a solid team of experts with unrivalled knowledge of the destinations on offer; guaranteed departures for all escorted tours; maintaining a good and well-priced variety of tour options; and most importantly, remaining true to the company’s core product offering while responding to market demands.

“We have established ourselves as the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern specialists in this market and we have never wavered from that,” says Polyviou. “As such, we have not only earned and continue to earn the trust, respect and loyalty of agents, but also maintain our position as true travel experts of the region.

“Many of our staff members have been with us for more than 10 years and collectively, they have all been to every destination we sell and continue to experience the tour itineraries we offer,” he continues. “The team is also very much involved in developing the itineraries and hand-picking many of our tour guides, ensuring they have the best knowledge and language skills for our clients.

“Being able to offer the largest product range in our featured destinations also helps, as this allows agents and their clients to pick, choose and tailor make their dream itineraries with much ease,” he adds.

According to Polyviou, in order to cope with popular demands for holidays and cruises to hot spots such as Greece, Croatia, Egypt and Turkey, they released their 2019 brochures a month early this year, and even featured a dedicated Croatian cruise brochure for special interest itineraries.

With the wholesaler’s expanding portfolio of tours and cruises, along with advanced bookings already made, Sun Island Tours is expecting growth figures for 2019 to surpass this year’s success.

The operator’s final brochure for 2019 featuring tours to Italy, Malta, Spain and Portugal will be coming out later in November.

Established in 1989, Sun Island Tours will be celebrating their 30th anniversary next year with a series of events around the country.
