April 30 Tours Sold Out

Posted: Saturday, April 22, 2017


Vietnamese workers have four days off for the Liberation Day and May Day holiday. Therefore, many have decided to go on holiday with families or friends during this time. To avoid missing the chance, many have decided to book their tours very early. Therefore, vacancies are not abundant for the time being. Some tour operators reported to have sold all reservations, and others 90 per cent of the plan.
 
In previous years, tourists often booked tours quite late or arranged the journey themselves over this holiday. But, self-arranged tours led many shortcomings. Not only being worried about travelling, accommodation, destination, shopping and tickets on their own, journeys might not be as smooth as expected. In addition, prices applied to individual customers were usually higher than to tour operators. If tours were booked late, prices were often increased because of higher hotel, air ticket and transport fees.
 
For this reason, this year, most tourists have booked tours quite early, especially with big companies. Ms Bui Mai Phuong in Dong Da district, Hanoi said, “In previous years, we often arranged the holiday on our own, but we could not visit all places we had planned because of insufficient experience. Besides, we had to worry too much about buying tickets, sightseeing tickets and hotel room bookings, making us less happy with the tour. We also had no idea about where to eat deliciously, reasonably and safely. Hence, we decided to book tours from professional companies this year. My friends told me that tour operators are professional and experienced enough to arrange secure and affordable tours for us.”
 
The April 30 holiday is long enough for group and family tours. Hence, tours operators are busy with package tours booked by group customers.
 
Ms Pham Thi Thu, Tour Manager of Hoabinhtourist & Convention Company, said, “Tour bookings for the April 30 holiday this year increase by 30 per cent over the previous year. Since the beginning of this year, tourists registering to use tours have risen sharply. Thus far, we have achieved nearly 90 per cent of our target. Although our tour vacancies are almost full, we can still provide more quality tour services since we are the first-tier agent of many hotels. And, we are always ready to advise for free.”
 
At present, some travel companies cannot take more tour bookings. However, tourists can still call first-tier travel firms for consultancy.
