Greece - A magnet for vacation for the Danish
On January the 28th of 2012, in the prestigious Newspaper of DENMARK (http://ekstrabladet.dk/) there was an extensive article on tourism on two of the most favoured destinations GREECE and TURKEY for the tourism market from Denmark, a climate that reflects the image of almost all Nordic countries.
The key points of the article are translated below:
- "GREECE and Turkey will be the big winners of the summer."
- "The Danish refuse to cut their holidays”
- "Only in January there were 200.000 purchases"
The most active day in the sales report in January, says Star Tours travel agency from Denmark, was 3 Sales per Minute and sales of the summer are as active as it was in January, regardless of what is said about the economic crisis.
The Danish have secured about 200.000 holiday packages only until this moment.
In "fashion" at the moment are Greece and Turkey as the most popular destinations, which very quickly sold packages for outside school holiday periods, and the distribution of buyers is 60% by families and 40% by couples.
“We are not feeling the crisis in the way of purchase of our customers and this is simply because they are buying. We do see, however, that they focus on promotions and discount packages, even more in packages in the period June-August. The great love of Danish to the Greek Islands "violently beats" preferences and sales for the summer vacation” says Mr Stig Elling, General Sales Manager Director of Star Tour travel agency.
Among many others the list of preferences is:
1. Antalya TurkeyEtc..
2. West Crete
