New Blue Bay Travel tech enables more multi-centre holidays

Tour operator Blue Bay Travel has launched a range of multi-centre long-haul holidays following the introduction of new in-house technology.

Prices start from £1,499 for an eight-night break and destinations include Bali, Sri Lanka, Dubai and Mauritius.

Alistair Rowland, Blue Bay Travel chief executive, said: “Over the last six months, our development team has been working on new multi-centre technology, which allows us to package up two- or even three-centre holidays with far greater ease and efficiency than before.

“The new technology also means that we can better present the availability of the multi-centre packages online without agents having to call us for a quote.

“We now have nine twin-centre options, with combinations as diverse as Dubai and Phuket or Abu Dhabi and The Maldives.”

He said post-pandemic travel trends and the rising cost of living mean that customers want more from their holiday than ever before – and a twin-centre offers that.

“Holidaymakers can enjoy a city break and a relaxing beach holiday in one or explore two different Caribbean islands in the same getaway, for instance,” he said.

“Our twin-centre itineraries utilise stopover destinations of existing airline routes to minimise the flight cost.

“It’s like getting two holidays for the price of one.”

An eight-night Bali twin-centre features the jungle region of Ubud and the beaches of Nusa Dua. It costs from £1,449, based on two sharing, with return flights from Heathrow.

A 10-night Thailand twin-centre features the capital Bangkok and resort of Koh Samui (pictured). Prices start from £1,599, based on two sharing, with return flights from Heathrow.

A Dubai and Mauritius twin-centre costs from £1,649 and includes 10 nights’ accommodation and flights from Gatwick.

As a tour operator, Blue Bay Travel sells package holidays direct to consumers and also, exclusively, via travel agent members of The Midcounties Co-operative’s Travel division, Your Co-op Travel, Co-op Travel Consortium, and The Personal Travel Agents in Partnership with Your Co-op.
