As part of its expansion, 5Continents, which is home to international receptives and specializes in group travel, told PAX exclusively that it will add TUI China to its list of clients.
The receptive will install its offices at 5Continents to better accommodate North American travellers to China.
"This is major, because it gives access to circuits guaranteed in French to Quebec travellers at really great prices, without having to worry about the validity of the product," said David Boigné, founder of 5Continents. "TUI is the largest tour operator on the planet, after all. It's really a big mark of confidence for 5Continents."
During the past few months, tourism to China has been tumultuous, due in part to the legal escapades of one of Quebec's main tour operators, Vacances Sinorama.
"We know that TUI China will not disappear tomorrow morning, it's really solid," Boigné said. "In addition, as it is an international brand, there is some quality control in terms of standard that is respected."
