WTM 2012: Tourico Holidays seeks UK partner network growth

US-based travel wholesaler Tourico Holidays is looking to increase its UK network of partners as it targets a growth in Latin America product.

Tourico currently offers a range of hotel and activity product in the US, Europe and Asia to tour operators and OTAs including Getabed, Travel Republic and Barrhead Travel.

It works predominantly with XML feeds, but also offers white label options and booking through a revamped website at touricoholidays.com.

Fabrizio Melis, sales director for Europe, said Tourico was interested in talking to agency groups, operators and group travel organisers who could deliver in excess of $750,000 sales per year.

“We have a number of long-standing relationships in the UK, but we are always looking to work with new partners.

“We have predominantly been known as a supplier of US product, but European product now accounts for 40% of our business and we also offer Asia and, from next year, an expanded Latin America programme.”

Last month, Tourico expanded its network of Direct Connect partners to offer a greater range of real-time pricing with branded chains including IHG, Wyndham, Hilton Worldwide and Best Western.

The company also offers vacation rental properties, and Mauiva AirCruise – small group tours of the US east and west coasts and Caribbean using private jets.
