Travel agencies from Bali Fight To Safe Discounted Rates For Tourists

Discuss The Article Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Travel agents in Bali are fighting to secure great-value travel discounts and guarantee their survival as a services provider in the region. Travel agents are fighting to stay relevant as it becomes more and more available for tourists to manage their vacations and travels autonomously. Go trends are shifting toward separate booking. The future of travel agents and tour operators on the island has been the focus of a meeting convened by the Association of Indonesian Tours and Travel Agencies in Bali ( ASITA ). One of ASITA’s key focuses moving ahead will be working with tourist attractions, both personal and government-managed, to help secure reduction access tickets for travelers.

With over 300 people, all travel agencies and tour operators who abide by the local laws believe they may gain from upholding industry standards. There are issues that independent travel agencies and tour operators that are not members of ASITA could get ahead with breaking local laws, which could lead to negative publicity for the business. In addition, Winastra stated that the Bali Provincial Government would receive the findings of the working gathering as input via the tourism office. For instance, if one tourist attraction ticket prices IDR 100,000, we may receive at least 10 % [off]. ” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Wonderful Indonesia ( @wonderfulindonesia ) The next most pressing issue for ASITA that will also directly impact tourists is the development of a dedicated pick-up area at I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, for large tour groups. This would enable tour groups and independent travelers alike enjoy a less disorganized environment in the delivery area. We are fighting for a particular area where we can now see tourists handled by travel agencies [so that the pick-up area is not like a screaming vehicle station],” Winastra told the press. As a result of ASITA’s assessment, Bali experienced the largest influx of large tourism development in the 1990s, when there is less need for travel agencies in 2024. However, by the organization ’s estimates as many as 50 % of Bali’s over 6 million annual visitors also rely on a reservation agent in one way to another. They believe that the industry needs more of its support so that travel agencies may best serve this sizable segment of the market. We are really interested in fighting for this because, when travel companies are no fought for, we will be displaced, said Winastra. As Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno spoke at the UN General Assembly Sustainability Week in New York earlier this year, all eyes were on the Indian tourism sector. According to Minister Uno,” It is hoped that our presence at this website may further enhance Indonesia as a tourist place that is truly concerned about security and sustainable development goals.” He told the UN Assembly,” We think that Indonesia has five Super Priority Tourism Destinations ( DPSP) that we are developing in total, as well as unique and interesting tourist destinations, not just Bali. We see this as a journey that will ultimately determine how Indonesia will become the destination of choice for tourists. ” Remove All Ads & Unlock All Articles … Sign up for The Bali Sun Premium Plan Your Bali Holiday: Book The Best English Speaking Drivers For Airport Transfers & Find the best deals on flights to Bali with free cancellation at most hotels and resorts.
