Aussies not your general travellers Adams Butler

first_imgAustralian travellers searching for their next holiday package are looking for something out of the box and niche, according to Adams & Butler owner, who described Aussies as “not your general travellers”.The Ireland luxury travel specialist’s head Siobhan Byrne Learat explained to e-Travel Blackboard that Aussies taking on the travelling world tend to be “more aware” when it comes to destinations and tours and are often prepared with the ins and outs of their travel desires.Launching in Australia less than two years ago, Ms Learat noted that the Australian market was now the company’s second largest business, following the US and South America and cited the success to the company’s tour diversity and flexibility. Offering agents and their clients a “clean sheet of paper”, they are then able to organise every aspect of their trip from the number of bikes needed on their bike tours to the star rating for every hotel.In addition, Ms Learat said the dollar value between Australia and Ireland has also swayed more Aussies to trek into Irish lands.“I think Ireland is just good value right now, we had the recession and all the hotel offers are at good rates,” she said.“Australians are normally longer travellers and tend to do good value accommodation and self drive but now a lot are booking suites cause they know they aren’t going to get it at that price again.”In Australia earlier this week, Ms Learat also told e-Travel Blackboard that while the company gets a lot of business through Virtuoso agents, other consultants are also picking up bookings with the Ireland luxury travel specialists.  Among the company’s most popular tours include the Jewish Tours and Titanic Tours, which Ms Learat noted received many travellers eager to see and experience the ship’s origin.
