Kuoni Set to Launch Online Booking Facility

Kuoni is launching new technology this summer which it claims will allow customers to book long-haul tailor-made trips online

It is the second time the operator has tried to launch online bookings for its tailor-made holidays.

Managing Director Derek Jones said this time the operator had taken a different approach, allowing customers to narrow down their holiday choices in a simple, formatted way.

He said the new service, yet to be named, would be launched at the end of June or early July and would likely start with a selected number of destinations.

It has been designed to appeal to a new generation of customers who might currently be struggling to book their own holidays online, rather than to existing customers who tend to begin their research online but make the final decisions with the help of a Kuoni expert travel advisor.
