Intelligent destination management for travel organisations

The tourism industry will be a win-win situation for everyone involved if the destination management of the travel organisation is structured sustainably. Belalgarve Consultants has many years of experience within the tourism and therefore understands the economic and social impact that the tourism industry has on all elements of the local economy and society. We analyse the tourist market at our destinations on a daily basis and always follow the latest trends with our approach.

Sustainable tourism and intelligent travel

Sustainability with respect for the local population, culture and the natural environment has become increasingly important for travellers and holidaymakers in recent years. Hoteliers like to promote their responsible use of natural resources such as water or electricity. The excursion offer and the various tourist activities in the different destinations are expected to bring holidaymakers together with the locals and provide information on cultural elements such as gastronomy, art and traditions. Holidaymakers want and expect part of the tourism income to go directly to the local population and small-scale service providers. Today's holidaymaker is increasingly aware of the importance of responsible travel. The large travel organisations are also responding to this. Increasingly, use is being made of small-scale and sustainable local providers. Even the major all-inclusive resorts today offer for example cooking or dancing lessons provided by locals.

Post-coronial tourism: small scale is an asset!

The corona crisis has only accelerated the trend towards sustainability and responsible travel. Due to the safety that individual and independent travel brings during pandemic situations, small-scale tourism will become increasingly popular. The large travel organisations are suddenly no longer so big and the crisis has shown that holidays in the hands of a large tour operator are not safer than independent and individual travel. It has been seen that deposits for holidays that cannot go through due to a global crisis could not be refunded even by tour operators who have advertised their reliability in every situation. Loosing your money or not getting help from the travel provider obviously is also a risk with individual and independent travel, but it often feels better if this lost money has remained directly in the local economy or with the locals of a holiday destination than in the large opaque purses of the multinational travel organisations.

Individual holidays with organised safety

Our holiday products respond to the new trends and the desire for small-scale holiday packages that offer the necessary safety and hygiene. By working with small-scale transportation and excursion companies and local  and private holiday accommodations, we can offer safe individual holiday packages that respond to the new hygiene requirements. In this way, holidaymakers get to know the local way of life, the culture and independently discover all the assets of the holiday region with the help of our knowledge.

We make your travel company a success in Cyprus, Cape Verde and Portugal

As a travel company or event company, you must not only ensure that the operations at your destinations run smoothly, but also that the costs of it do not cancel out the profit on your margins.

You must also always be ahead of your competitor and offer a customer experience that is unique and may become the new trend of tomorrow. Finding price and quality at all levels is difficult, especially if you base your collaboration on a single local representation company or DMC.

By working together with a consultancy firm specializing in tourism in Cyprus, Cape Verde and Portugal, such as Belalgarve Consultants, you are not bound to one operator and therefore only one price and quality level, but you can choose from numerous building block options for airport transport, accommodation procurement, local representation and multilingual customer service. We look for the right ingredients for you to meet your customers' expectations and offer them at the lowest possible price.

Of course, it seems complicated from an organizational point of view to work together with multiple performers at the destination, but no problem. We fuse together the suitable building block options for you into one product with one contact, which you can always count on and who will keep an eye on the local implementation of the agreements at all times.
