For bookings made until 31 October 2020, guests will receive a best price guarantee as well as the cancellation option up to 14 days before the start of the trip with a money-back guarantee. A strong portfolio this winter and discounts for next summer round off the promotion.
Can’t get any better: With immediate effect, the tour operator is launching a campaign for all new bookings for its brands FTI Touristik and BigXtra in the travel period between 16 October 2020 and 31 October 2021. In addition to special benefits for early bookers, the focus is on maximum flexibility, security and holidays at the best price. FTI Group Managing Director Ralph Schiller explains: "Since Corona, the needs of travellers have changed. With our new campaign, we are therefore now shifting the focus accordingly and make the booking decision particularly easy for our guests: with high early booking discounts, a best price guarantee, free cancellation until shortly before the start of the trip and a guaranteed refund of costs in the event of cancellation within two weeks, there are no longer any hurdles that set limits to the holiday dreams even in such turbulent times as these".
The campaign covers all destinations in the package holiday programme of the tour operators FTI Touristik and BigXtra in winter 2020/21 and summer 2021. The only exclusions are pachages with datamix, scheduled flight and cruise bookings.
Selection from the complete portfolio with exclusive flights from Holiday Europe
The choice of classic winter destinations is deliberately not to be restricted, even if the Federal Foreign Office still issues some travel warnings, as Managing Director Schiller explains: "We are very aware of our responsibility for the safety and health of our guests and naturally follow the Federal Government's assessments closely. In this respect, we can only be very cautious about what might be possible in the winter season - which, from a tourism point of view, lasts until April 2021 - and under what circumstances. However, the prospect of a holiday is emotionally important for many people, and the Germans' desire for holidays remains unbroken, so that we are offering a broad range of prospects based on a positive development. The tour operator is focusing on the Canary Islands, Egypt, Morocco, the United Arab Emirates and Oman for the winter season and is therefore offering 17 December 2020, exclusive flights with partner Holiday Europe.
Summer 2021: Big early bird discounts of up to 40 percent
Early Birds traditionally benefit from the tour operator's high discounts. This year again, budget conscious people should look out for the "super early bird discount". The summer season for those looking for bargains starts particularly early, as FTI offers the reduced offers for the travel period starting on 1 April 2021. The decision to book until 31 January 2021 means that high savings potential is guaranteed, with peaks of up to 40 percent, for example in Egypt, Turkey or on the Canary Islands. But the FTI GROUP is putting one more thing on top of this: "Independently of our attractive early booking offers, we are also offering a best price guarantee for bookings made by 31 October 2020," says Schiller. "Our customers can be assured that they would not have been able to get their holiday cheaper anywhere else with identical services up to four weeks before the start of the trip".
Free cancellation up to 14 days before the start of the trip
The tour operator rewards those who make a quick decision with a particularly accommodating cancellation policy as part of the campaign. Anyone who books by 31 October 2020 is guaranteed the opportunity to cancel free of charge up to 14 days before the start of the trip. "This high degree of flexibility is particularly attractive for longer-term planning," Schiller notes. "And in order to avoid any uncertainties, we hereby make a binding promise to reimburse the costs within 14 days in the event of cancellation - directly and without detours via vouchers or other credit solutions".
