Japanese travel companies increase tourist offers to Cuba

Posted: 25-Aug-15 15:23

Now that the ease of travel restrictions between the USA and Cuba has increased the demand for tourism to this country, a number of Japanese travel agencies are increasing their travel offers.

Japanese travel companies increase tourist offers to Cuba

Japanese travel agencies will be increasing travel offers to Cuba following a new demand after relations were normalised with the USA. There are several travel companies that will now be offering holiday packages for visitors to Cuba.

From October the travel company JTB will be increasing their tour packages from five to eight, following a five times increase in the number of bookings to Cuba, as was reported by Nikkei the economic daily.

Many travellers are interested in visiting Old Havana, which is a Word Heritage Site filled with many beautiful buildings and a colourful vibe. Visitors are eager to visit Havana before the city changes due to American influx and they are not able to experience its authentic Cuban atmosphere.

There are many other companies in Japan that are taking an interest in travel to Cuba. A company called Hankyu Travel has begun to promote its packages to Cuba in July. This is a month earlier than last year and the company has already received 40% more applications than usual.

The Tokyo based company KNT is refining its travel offers to Cuba, which include joint tours that also encompass Mexico. Also, the travel company is holding information sessions for potential travellers at the Cuban embassy in Tokyo.

The Travel company H.I.S. plans to restart their guided tours to Cuba. Also, a Japanese travel agency called Nippon will be selling tour slots in October.

Of course, now that Cuba is becoming such a hot tourist destination these Japanese companies will be facing a lot of competition when it comes to securing accommodation and hotel rooms for their clients.

There has been an increase in interest in Cuba from many other nations besides the USA and the number of visitors to this Caribbean island has rocketed. Will the Japanese tour agencies be able to keep up with the competition, now that everyone is fighting for a piece of the Cuba travel pie?
