German tour operators confirm that German visitors to the Costa Brava will increase

The Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board with the Lloret de Mar and Castell-Platja D’Aro Tourist Information Offices were among the participants at the Catalonia stand at the international tourism fair in Berlin, ITB, from 5 to 9 March.

The German tour operator FTI announced at the show that this season it expects to bring between 30% and 40% more German tourists to the Costa Brava. Meanwhile, another operator, Dertour, reported that bookings in the first quarter of 2014 were up by 15-20% on the same period last year. Ostwest, a travel agency and coach tour operator, which continues to be a leader in Catalonia, has contracted more services and reports more reservations in the southern Costa Brava area.

The Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board agreed during the fair to organise two joint roadshows with the FTI and ITS tour operators. They will visit a number of German cities in order to promote package tours to the Costa Brava and the region’s tourism products to sales staff in retail travel agencies.
