"The World of Islands"


 "The World of Islands" office would be an intermediary between the consumer and you. Consumers will be able to get all the information about their chosen destination, while at the same time discovering new destinations they might not have considered before. In addition, by bringing together all the useful information in one single location (those provided by you and those offered by the local tourist industry), the office will become a crucial address for consumers preparing island vacations, all the more so since these services are and will remain free for consumers.

At the same time, all islands will benefit from the increased interest in their countries due to easier access to information.

With this office, the smaller islands will have a presence in the European market, while the larger islands will see their presence grow and develop at less cost.
