    Evolution Travel Collective (ETC) has announced a new strategic partnership with global coach touring provider Touropa.

    Touropa is a collaboration between Sun Island Tours, a wholesaler for the Mediterranean, and the coach tour company Europamundo Vacations. This product aims to offer Australian travel agents’ access to a range of coach tours, enhancing travel options for customers seeking cost-effective touring options, particularly through Europe.

    Touropa brings unique selling points that sets it apart from other larger coach touring companies. Its booking platform provides easy and instant confirmation, while its innovative approach to tour options, including Rotative and Sector-based journey options, offers flexibility to travellers.

    A standout feature of Touropa’s offerings is its guaranteed departures policy. Tours are guaranteed to depart with as few as two passengers, ensuring that travellers’ plans remain firm and reliable, regardless of group size. This guarantee underscores Touropa’s commitment to customer satisfaction and travel certainty.
