The market had been dominated by package holidays due to the prices of scheduled airfares, as well as, difficulty in communicating with and finding hotels and companies overseas. However, as budget airlines emerged, this was changed. Now, people can book cheap flights and make reservations on hotels worldwide from anywhere in the globe.
The concept of booking trips directly became more famous with the invention of the Internet. This caused for package holidays to be slowly eased out from the market. This change affected long haul destinations and major holiday operators can no longer compete with other local hotels and operators. They started to reduce their programmes in certain countries. PureTravel help these local tour operators advertising their holidays directly to the public.
PureTravel was formed by two companies, Real World Travel and Mindcom Internet. Many specialist travel sites are also operated by these two companies like South Africa and Real Africa Holidays.
PureTravel has been planned for ten years and have set out a clear commitment to their policy on responsible tourism. PureTravel works with local tour operators, providing long-term benefits to the local community at the same time protecting the environment. PureTravel aims to promote positive cultural exchanges and develop long-term relationships among the communities of travel destinations.
Recently, PureTravel launched a new website with the aim of promoting adventure holidays directly from the places to be visited. The site provides holidays and tours all over the world. Activities that will suit different kinds of personalities are offered like trekking, climbing, watersports, culture and history. The website also features famous destinations and places that are suited for every one in the family. The site also includes regular newsletters; a blog which has the latest news, tips, pictures, and guides in travelling; and a special offers section which offer the latest discounts on holidays.
All the adventure tours are run by a specialist tour operator company which was properly assessed by PureTravel. This was done as an assurance that the company will comply with PureTravel’s standards on environmental awareness and responsible tourism. ‘Go direct, save money and give more back’ is the ethos of the company.
