Paris/Orlando – November 15 2013 – The innovative travel wholesaler Tourico Holidays continues its expansion plans by opening a new office in Paris for its French Sales and Product Development team.

Members of his team include Christophe Jacquat and Orna Baily Gibson, both acting Product Managers of Paris, and Jean Francois, Product Manager of France. Francois will be working from outside of Paris, based closely to the city of Lyon. Sales are under the direction of Astrid Simo, Sales Manager for France.

With this new office, Tourico Holidays aims to increase the growth of France as a destination by 75% in 2014. The market share already grew by 16% in 2012, and has so far grown by 55% in 2013.

Tips and Tricks for Christmas Shopping in New York.
Save money using the expert knowledge of travel wholesaler TH.

ORLANDO, Fla. – November 6 2013 – Black Friday, which falls on November 29 this year, marks the official opening of “Shoppers Week” (November 29 – December 15) in the USA and, with it, the Christmas shopping season. During this time, the prices for hotels on Fridays and Saturdays will be extremely high. Therefore, the international travel wholesaler Tourico Holidays has put together some expert tips to help visitors to New York get the most out of their Christmas budget.

“Shoppers Week” hits its peak from December 3 – 7, during which time the prices for an overnight stay increase by about 13% compared to the rest of “Shoppers Week”. Tourico Holidays recommends that clever holiday shoppers planning a weekend visit to New York choose the weekend after November 29 rather than the days surrounding December 6. Those who wish to celebrate the season in the Big Apple without paying Big Apple prices should plan their arrival after December 15. A stay through Christmas will be rewarded with hotel prices up to 70% cheaper than the average price of a hotel during the peak days of “Shoppers Week”.

Visitors can also enjoy savings of up to 25% by booking tickets to local attractions, activities, and museums in advance. Packages offer even better savings; Tourico Holidays and its partners are offering this great promotion: book three or more nights at Astor on the Park, Doubletree Metropolitan, Grand Hyatt, Affinia Manhattan or the Marriott East Side, clients of the travel wholesaler will be given complimentary tickets to popular local activities. With a three night stay, clients receive two tickets to Madame Tussauds; a four night stay is rewarded with two Dave & Buster’s VIP packages, guaranteeing fun and great food for the whole family.  Five night stays result in two tickets for the Downtown Loop Bus Tour, which visits Greenwich Village, Times Square, the Empire State Building, the shopping center at Union Square, Soho, Chinatown, and the World Trade Center memorial. Travelers should be sure to ask about these complimentary perks when booking their trip with the travel agent. They are not available on the hotels website.

Visitors planning to visit the Big Apple before November 29 don’t have to miss out on Christmas spirit! On November 21, the iconic Macy’s Department Store will unveil its festively decorated show windows, followed by the traditional Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 29.
