The launch of summer 2020 holiday season

The end of the summer brings out nostalgic thoughts about already experienced holidays and inspires to think  about the upcoming ones. Holiday planning is exciting and challenging at the same time - how to spend less and have a none the less quality vacations? One of the most effective ways to do so – purchase  next year‘s vacations during early bookings. 

An increasing number of Lithuanian travellers are looking forward for early booking sales every year. According to Novaturas CEO Mrs. Audronė Keinytė, formerly Lithuanians were quite reserved in planning their holidays in advance but the benefits of early bookings has changed the situation.

“There are several factors that influence growing demand for early booking sales.  Firstly, it is the lowest price guarantee – we assure our clients that they will purchase holidays at the most favourable price. We undertake to return the difference in price if the selected trip will be offered  during the season at a lower price than during early bookings. The second factor - possibility to change holiday plans - our clients can change their trip itinerary, destination, date or hotel. This year we have added another privilege – our clients can also  change the personal data of the person whom they are planing to spend holidays  free of charge“, - explains CEO of the company. 

The possibility  to save and conveniently plan vacation budget are the main benefits of early bookings. “In addition to the lowest price guarantee, our clients have to pay initial payment of only 50 eur per person in order to book their trip. This initial payment is included in the total price of the trip and the remaining price is ought to be paid 28 days prior to departure. Such early bookings benefits enable better expenses control and make it easier to plan the whole vacation budget“, says Mrs. A. Keinytė.  

Invites to join the noble mission

“We are the largest tour operator in the Baltic States and this status obliges us to take care of not only our business, our clients, but also to be socially responsible company. We constantly look for partnerships that are meaningful and have long-lasting value. We are very excited to announce the launch of a new partnership - a project with the Lithuanian sea museum ”, A. Keinytė speaks about the launch of a new social project that coincides with the start date of early bookings.

All the clients while  purchasing “Novaturas“ trip online or at a travel agency will have the opportunity to contribute with voluntary payment of EUR 3, 5 or 10 EUR. All the raised money will be transferred to the Lithuanian sea museum for the implementation of the rehabilitation center constructions project.
