Luxury operator Classic Collection Holidays has launched a new and exciting long-haul program for 2020, adding destinations such as Vietnam and Indonesia to its portfolio.
The operator, which has been operating for more than 30 years, is adding these new destinations following demand from its loyal travel agent partners, which have been selling its ever-popular European short haul holidays for the last number of years.
Introducing eight new destinations in its first phase, the exotic long-haul destinations of Vietnam, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Mauritius, Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa, will be followed later in 2020 with more hot spots. Classic Collection has partnered with luxury hotel brands such as Aman, Four Seasons, Six Senses and Anantara, along with local hotel brands which offer the same quality and customer experience.
Hotels have also been selected due to their excellent customers reviews and customer satisfaction scores, and positive impact on environment, such as the Lagoon Attitudes Resort in Mauritius, the first eco-committed hotel in Mauritius, which has committed to zero single-use plastic items.
The luxury long-haul portfolio will also include a selection of private recommended tours for each destination, shared departure tours for solo travellers and Fly Drive holidays, all with beach holiday extensions.
Speaking about the new long haul brochure Niall McDonnell Head of Sales Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be launching our luxury long haul offering. As a trade-only brand we have had tremendous support from Irish agents, both North & South, over the last number of years for our luxury short haul product. We will continue to support agents with our excellent level of customer service through our contact centre and we are confident this new long haul offering will prove incredibly popular with our agent partners.”
